    Anyone else model on the computer ???

    Well I have been doing maya for like a month on and off for modeling.
    I am getting better at it like I am half way done with Autodesks tutorials.
    Anyone else modle using whatever software for a hobby or job
    Here are some sorta good examples of what I have done so far :

    My first face sclupted from a NURB with glass shade and ambient lighting

    Okay I did not make the ice shader but I did the glass shader

    My first somewhat realistic rendering
    The thing I noticed is you get bored/burned out if you JUST do polygons or just rendering,
    I did the polygons then skipped to rendering then nurbs and so on.
    I sorta use what I learned get bored then learn more sorta. I am sorta happy with this little hobby since it could be a viable job sometime since every new cartoon is made from programs like maya same with special computer effects and so on.
    There are many more semidone models that are just no good enough to post here yet....
    My next (like 20 hour combined)project well it is a seceret untill it is done..(just started)

    I used to play around a bit with Bryce on the school computers. Made some pretty cool stuff.


    I've found the full sized version(photobucket resized it) actually makes a pretty cool desktop background.

    I am not familiar of what program it is ,
    did you use some 2d effects or how did you do that ??
    If I was to recreate it I'd like take some nurbs or polys then ectrude them and make them all swirly then add glass shader then an ambient light
    WOW ! bryce is cool,maya is soo complex it is sorta apain,
    they are sorta liek they sell models and things like that.
    I am more orientated into maya for the abilities but it will take much longer but I am familiar with maya so I do not want to change.

    oh really..... have you tried autocad? i've tried both, i gotta say autocad's more.... challenging, you gotta do math for autocad or else everything fails.

    I was in school to do special effects in movies, but I ended up focusing on the web instead. I always intended to pick up 3D again as a hobby. I miss it.

    On hand I only have thumbnails from one 3D Studio project. I'd have to do some digging to find anything else.

    1000 points if you can guess who this project is about from these tiny shots:
