In this Maya tutorial we will begin by starting out with just a concept image and start to explore methods used to quickly and efficiently create 3D model of a weapon. Along the way we will be encountering topology issues and learn new ways of troubleshooting those. We will be focusing on less of a traditional tools that are used today for modeling, and rather explore creative ways of application for the news onces. Upon completing our model, we will look at basics of V-Ray material setup for Maya, where we explore various options and what effect they have, look at couple of a rendering tips to improve the quality of our final image, and touch a few basic steps on compositing of our final image.
