Texture and light

So here are some more Maya pictures. I didn’t find last week’s exercises rather inspiring – making random spheres with different textures just doesn’t do it for me. Sorry. :P
Instead I more or less combined last week’s exercise with this week’s. Turned out a little more interesting. ;)

I didn’t really know what to make of this exercise so I just fooled around some, trying different lights and so on. This is how it turned out. Not too bad, but of course it depends on what you like. :|

Light house
I really liked this one. Light houses are exciting, I think. :gig:
I added some ocean, a moon and a background and it came out quite eerie and nice. Used bump map for the island and water texture for the ocean.

Perfume/logotype/glowing orbs
I started with the perfume bottle-exercise but then Maya started crashing and nothing wanted to go my way so I got a frightful headache and wanted to throw the whole thing in the garbage bin. :swoon:
But I didn’t. After some sleep I continued and decided I didn’t want to make three different bottles, I just made one. I then used the bottle as a logo and tried the moving light a bit. It was okay, but I didn’t make a screen shot of it. It wasn’t that funny. :eh:

Then I played around with the eye exercise from last week, added a crystal ball and some orbs. Instead of a chess board I made a lovely marble floor. The reflection of the wallpaper looks very nice, I think. :D
I also made a puddle of blood instead of the treasure map. :devil:
Then I wanted to make some kind of dagger, knife or something, but I tried it and it just didn’t look good fast enough so I found a sword online (The3dStudio.com) that I transformed into a small knife and added texture to. :roll:
And that’s about it. It took me most of today to finish the piece and I kinda like it, actually. (Thus I rendered a big version in high quality. Nice and shiny!) :D

Short note about UV’s. I’m one of those geeks that once sat around and made my own textures for The Sims and The Sims 2. What I’m saying is: I know how it works and how it’s done, but I really don’t feel like spending more time in Maya at the moment. ;)

    Kanske brist på entusiasm men vad gör det när du får såna resultat. :)
    Killer parfym!

    Hehe, tack. Var ett par gånger där som jag tänkte att det inte var någon parfymflaska utan snarare “äkta” gift. ;)
