And so Maya happened. Well, we have been instructed that for our first university project of the year we have to model 2 props and 1 character in 3 weeks, but instead model it in Maya instead of 3dsMax.
We we're told to try and pick something that already existed so we didn't have to spend too much time putting together turnarounds and so I choose to go with items and Kimiko from the Dresden Codak universe, as I'm just a little bit in love with the webcomic. (Webcomic here http://dresdencodak.com/. Go read.)
Here's the two props I choose to model, and will later texture. It's Kim's bag and the Nephilopolis (that's like a prop... right?). All designs belong to Aaron Diaz and have been bastardized for 3D.
