So my progress has been really fast lately. Picking up everything from a new program is not easy, but with a lot of guidance from our efficient teacher and smart friends, learning Maya has not been a problem so far.
All though I have encountered some problems. The first problem I had was the top of the cylinder.
I have no idea what happened, but it somehow split in two parts which really caused a lot of problems for me. Due to this I thought that I might as well start all over again with the top of the structure. I deleted the “Destroyed” part and made a new one.
I used the old one as proof of concept, and I tried to recreate the top shape as closely as possible to the drawing I made of the structure before it blew up.
Still have a lot of details to add, but I will also edit the tower top later to look like it’s been blown up like I recently tried. However I will use a different method than what I did this time.
Without further a due, here’s the current WIP of my structure.
Back (without light):
And just to be fancy here is the current model with wireframes:
Now that is A LOT of bricks. I am not looking forward to UV mapping 😦
