Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling a tooth, part of Digital Creature Creation in ZBrush, Photoshop, and Maya.
There's lots of types of teeth and lots of ways to make them.…In this movie, I'll demonstrate an effective method that can be modified to…create a wide variety of teeth types.…I'm also going to cover some more common modeling tools and techniques that…should help out in all kinds of situations, not just making teeth.…I decided to base my teeth on the ones in this reference image.…They are triangular and in a fairly neat row.…So let's get into Maya.…To start, let's just make one tooth.…Let me go up and select the Pyramid Primitive and just draw it out onto the grid.…
And I am going to change some of the attributes so let's go into the Channel…box and go into the polyPyramid Input, I am going to change the Number of Sides to 3.…And let's change the Subdivision Height to 3 as well.…And the reason I'm doing this is to have a little bit more control over the…shape of this, I want some Subdivisions along the height so that I can tweak the…shape a little bit more so it's not a perfect pyramid shape.…
