I wanted to see Surrogates mostly because it looked like it had a cool plot. Living through a robot-you and all that. Of course it can make life as creepy as it is when guys are girls in MMO’s and vice versa. As you’ll see if/when you see the movie. I’d say it was worth it to see Brucey with hair and a scary smoothed out face. I hate when faces are smoothed out by CGI. Its creepy. I remember calling some RnB chick fuzzy lady cos they did it to her so much lol.

My first time – with Maya 2008! (LOL)

October 7, 2008

Now I’m finally on my animation course and finally have my hands on Maya, I’ve been able to play about with it. So far I’m still learning and some of it’s really confusing… so many buttons and tabs and god knows what…. Today we learnt how to bend/curve things, and make funky shaped pillars.

This was my first try, very-very basic...

This was the slightly different temple, better lighting, but the shadows have gone weird... I got it right earlier on... but then it went like that....

The is the slightly more fun temple, still with the strange planet, but now with funky pillars and a weird shaped roof! And a mountain backdrop which I made by pulling about a bit of Nurb plane.

First time I added the shading on this, it looked fine, then I did something, and it went like this... I have no explanation... as I said, newbie to Maya...
