About This Class


In this class, I will walk you through the process of modeling a character that you can 3D print.

We'll be using a simple pencil sketch or any concept art you'd like as our base image to work from. It is good to pick a simple image / concept. We will start off with modeling basic geometric shapes and forms to create our exciting character. I will walk you through the ins and outs of our basic workflow of modeling in Maya. 

I'm really excited to teach this class and I hope everyone enjoys this process!
