Welcome to this course
During this course you will learn how to model concept/prototypes in this case we will look at the processes I use to model a pair of headphones (with blue tooth everything is better with blue tooth!)
We will look at the following:
I can wait for you to see how easy it will be for us to create stunning pieces of art!
See you there...
We will take a look at starting our concept by gathering refernces and mocking up our Headphones.
In this lesson we will set our project and start creating our basic block shapes.
Lets carry on with our block bases..
OK we are nearly finished with our basic block shapes.
Now we have a our basic shapes lets start to model our final speaker pieces.
Please watch these next lessons in creating a complex mesh, after this I will show you a simpler way to create the same effect!!
Please feel free to follow along as it will all be good practice for you.
Now we have started the mesh we will now look at postioning the parts so they intertwine.
Finally we have our complex mesh, be carefull though as it is a very memory intensive piece of geometry and can often overload your computer and Maya!!
Setting up our Geometry for transfer.
Using transfer maps we can transfer a detailed piece of Geometry over to a simplified version, giving you the best of both worlds, from this we can also transfer colour so that we can use that for specular and opacity maps.
Using Photoshop we can just fine tune our maps.
Lets finish off our editing in Photoshop.
Lets finish off by transfering the detail into the maps.
Just a quick video to show how quick the speaker grill could be completed.
I will now show you how to UV and manually testure the speaker internal pieces.
Lets create a bump map and add this to the material within Maya
FInish the outer shell pieces,
Completing the rest of the pieces.
Lets finish by mirroring the pieces.
Adding a texture to the outer shell.
Creating the texture in Photoshop.
Lets create the Blue Tooth plug.
Finally lets pose our model and do some quick test renders.
