Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling furniture using simple parts and reusable textures, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In this chapter I'll look at modeling furniture for use as Game Props.…We can model rooms fairly easily, but really, if you look at a room there is--well--…a lot of stuff in it, and it's not necessarily very special things but simply…the stuff that's there's the function of the room.…As an example, if I walk into a house, most likely I am going to see some kind of dining area.…If I walk into an office I'll probably see a desk and chairs, that sort of thing.…Additionally, if we're dealing a place that's maybe abandoned or run down, we…might see furniture that's strewn around.…
And we need to make pieces in order to have debris.…It's very easy for an environment in a game to look really empty unless we fill it up with stuff.…And we want to do so in a way that is matching the theme of the game.…What I'll show how to model then is a wooden chair here, and I have got two…different examples, a standard ladder back, and also one that's bent.…There is all kinds of regional variations of these.…But the basic idea is we have got some place to sit, and it's made of wood, and it's…
