My 3D modeling class was actually my last Maya class ever at SJSU! I'm sooo glad to be done haha. I did come out of the class with some neat stuff though-
The last 2 were part of the final project of the class where I had to model an original character for the purpose of 3D printing it. Needless to say this was the most fun I'd have modeling anything haha. Here's the result-
And here's some of the concept work I made specifically for this model based on drawings I've posted previously-
Obviously I strayed a bit from the concept work to compensate for creating the character for a different medium but it was a good learning experience!
My other studio class was an intro to digital illustration. I'm by default really not confident at all with my painting and color skills but I think I came out of this class for the better.
We started out with simple black and white assignments like rendering a kitchen object then aging it like 30 years and copying from photographs.
|it's like a Slap Chop|
Then we went on to work on a series of illustrations based on the writings of Gary Soto who wrote stories based on growing up in a Mexican-American agriculture community in Fresno, CA. The first set of illustrations was to design either a kitchen or garage based on a set of writings. I picked the garage and I think I ended up biting off more than I could chew-
The final project was also based on Soto's works but this time we had to design a treehouse.
