About This Class

In this second part of the course series, we will learn how to give color and texture to our 3D models!

"Look Development" is a broad term that defines the stage of 3D that involves several different steps which we will cover all of them in this course:

  • UV-ing
  • Textures
  • Shading
  • Lighting
  • Rendering

We will take a grey shaded model and learn how to paint textures right inside of Maya! No other software needed. The models we created in Part 1 will be used, but if you want to skip that part and start with this one! Download the course files to get all the models we built in Part 1 to follow along with this course!
