9:45 CONT. Character Modeling
We will have an hour this morning and an Hour tomorrow morning as well for our characters.
Starting this morning and following into next week, we will be creating our characters we have drawn and/or creatively thought of from last week. Soren, Bruce and Conor, I ask that you think of a character you’d like to make for our game. Make some sketches before just jumping into making a character. Below are a couple videos that may help you out as you create your character. I personally would recommend video 2 as it goes a bit slower and creates an easier model.
If you do not have a reference of your character, it is totally ok. You can free model it, or you can scan in your image. It’s best to have a side and front angle of your character, but again, it’s ok to not have a reference in maya.
We will start by creating a basic cube or cylinder, from there we will expand out this model to create HALF of our character. We will then “Duplicate Special” so anything we do to one side happens to the other side.
We will not be focusing on textures today. Lets focus on making a clean model with the lowest amount of polygons possible.
When complete, upload a render as mobaCharacter.jpg to your week_7 folder. AGAIN, we will have more time for this next week.
10:45 Break (15 Minutes)
Robots! Be nice to Mrs. Ligouri. Listen. Go science!
(Extra time for Robots. As far as I know now, only Tenzin, Reed, Soren, Haley, Sarah, Witham, Cardosi and Carner are done.)

12:45 Inktober Drawing #2
This afternoon we will be participating in Inktober as some of you have already asked to take part in it. If you don’t know the rules to Inktober, check them out on the site HERE. Basically you can only use ink / pen to make a drawing. Below you can see the days prompts. Today we will be focusing on day 17 for obvious reasoning. Our Prompt is: GRACEFUL
Inktober has partnered with Autodesk Sketchbook to give you a free 15 day trial. Might be a good time to try out the program. Focuses in sketching tools such as pen, marker and pencil. Another program to have in your toolbelt. You can also grab some free weekly brushes from Autodesk as well.
When complete, sign and date and have ready to hand in next Wednesday for grading.
