Four weeks in Maya Workshop

Time to share some progress! The Maya Workshop at AnimationMentor is excellent, there is plenty to learn! I’ve been playing with lighting, shading and rendering this weekend. It’s good to get the basics down and overindulge a bit now so I can focus on character animation when the time comes!

Basic modelling


Basic staging and motion (rolling)

Orbits and shading


Bouncing and lighting

Lighting exercises

The next 2 weeks cover working with rigs: a robot arm and a one-legged ball. Bring it! 🙂
