Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Blocking chair shapes in Maya, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Host] Okay, so it's that time in the course…that we're going to start modeling our wingback leather chair.…Now, I have provided a lot of extra images for you to use…in the exercise files so that you can use these…to aid in you in the digital sculpting process…as you're going through there.…The workflow that we're going to be using…for our wingback chair is the organic workflow.…And it will follow the steps of blocking the basic shape,…retopologize that shape for optimized sculpting,…then sculpt the basic shape of the blocking,…add all of the details in the sculpting,…retopologize that sculpt for the final model…to go back to your 3D application,…and transfer all of that fine detail with texture.…
So let's hop into Maya and take a look…at how we can block in our basic shape.…We're here in 05_01_Start, and I want to actually…bring an image plane into the background…so that we can use it for reference…for the overall shape of this chair.…We'll come up here to create image plane,…and go into our chapter five.…
