Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Leg blocking, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- [Instructor] So as we continue creating this side table,…we're going to move into the leg portion of this…and if we zoom in and take a look,…you'll see that these side legs off of the tripod…have these nice little medallions…just coming right out of the side of that wood…and they also have these little caps underneath.…Now I went ahead and added the caps…to our current scene and we are in the 0404 start,…if you want to follow along from this point.…So, we do have this rounded shape…that has an arm that reaches up…and we can see that from another angle…that they have the exact same kinds rounded shape…with that medallion over here.…
So we're going to take a look…at what's going to be the best approach…for creating this overall shape.…And I'm honestly going to start with the medallion.…It's circular in shape here…and we should be able to extrude a circular shape out…from that and then be able to figure out…how to get the arm attached over here.…So I'm going to go over into my left view…and I need to know about how big…
