Join Andy Beane for an in-depth discussion in this video Vase blocking, part of Maya: Advanced Modeling.
- So, here we are in the 03_02_Start file,…and in this particular Maya file,…I have already gone and placed my image planes…in here for us to use as reference.…Now, we're going to create this vase shape,…and honestly, up front, it's not that complicated…just from the standpoint that it's just a cylinder…that's been kind of bowed out…into this kind of nice shape.…Now, the interesting part about this…are these diamond shape extrusions…that are all the way around it.…And that's going to be the most challenging part…about this particular model.…
Now, from a workflow standpoint,…this is a hard surface simple.…It is not a complicated shape overall; it's a single object.…and we're going to come at it with the workflow…of just using a basic primitive to start with.…So, let's jump in and go.…So, I'm going to snap back out into my work view here,…and I'm going to start by creating that polygon cylinder.…I'm going to move that cylinder up…over here in our work view, and I'm going to use…the scale tool just to start getting this…
