Mastering Maya: The Fundamentals - When Mechs Attack

In this, the most technical of the three projects, you will learn how to handle vast scenes comprised of many different and highly advanced components. You'll take a deeper look at modeling, shading, and special effects as you create a scene that includes a towering battle robot that marches across a snowy landscape, destroying a building with a single blast from its mighty cannon. This project will introduce you to Maya's powerful particle system, enabling you to create a blustery snowstorm, along with your own pyrotechnic effects such as smoke and fire!
