Things have been busy busy the last few weeks. I've taken up learning CGI Animation @ Santa Monica College in their Academy for Entertainment and Technology. The teaching there has been fantastic, easing any inhibitions of not being able to learn or continuing to self-educate about Maya. There's been a strong emphasis on storytelling that simplifies your projects and the clarity in instruction lets you hit the ground running.
I'm taking ET24 - 3D Fundamentals with Chris Fria. It's a pretty fast paced class....one week it's modeling polygons/nurbs, the next animation, and finally culminating nicely into rendering while coming to the ends of our final projects.
Here's a sample of the textures that are going into be assigned to the characters. More to come!
