Well, after two and a half days on Maya, I kinda know how to texture...more or less. The exercise today involved us being given a template then, creating our own texture/boxman to go around cubes. Seamlessly. We first start out with one cube for the first exercise. Afterwards we were then provided a Maya file with the whole character. I found it a lot of fun. I did all the drawing/ texturing in Flash. Wacoms are not provided at school and drawing in photoshop with a mouse is a pain so as soon as I found out they had Flash...that's all she wrote. This is good anyway as I do most of my animate-able character designs in Flash and this will be applicable to a few animation ideas I have in the future. I am barely touching the surface of Maya yet but I will get there. It will be good to go through some tutorials on my own before class next week. We shall see how we go.
I am still working on my first school of fish painting. It's taking a while I must admit. The aim is to get it done today and scanned at Officeworks for a print run the next day. I am hoping that everything goes well and that there are no delays come Sunday morning for printing.
