Fruit bowl in Maya 2008 (My 132nd post!!!)

November 14, 2008

Our task this week(on my animation course, if you didnt know lol) was to colour/render a premade fruitbowl, and try to get it looking as realistic as possible. Here be mine;



We were given most of the skins we needed(we didnt get the grape or lime, though it wasn’t specified what the limes were, coulda been plums, but making it look fuzzy turned out to be too tricky atm…), it was more about lighting it right, and making the shine on the items of fruit and stuff look alright.  Yes the leaves and stalks and stuff look naff, but thats not what I was concentrating on…. I wanted to get the grapes in particular looking good. And I never realised how much the actual lighting makes a difference. They looked naff before adding the spot lights n stuff.


A top view of the fruit bowl. It’s more a plate really lol. We had a choice of like 4 plate designs, 2 japanese, one plane metallic, and one other blue patterned affair. Of course I went for the gaudiest of the bunch. I did this pretty much a week ago now… Just had to touch it up a bit today… I kept forgetting to transfer it to my laptop so I could post it on facebook…. I keep forgetting… I did that for the spaceship and the animal too…

Anyways. Thats my fruit bowl. I’ve got loads of work to do this week…. way too much…. flipbooks of feathers falling, anvills falling, walking, a street or room to render…… oh the workload…. but I must do it!!! For the good of mankind! And my career!!! lol
