  11. Spaceship Modeling

    We love spaceships! You could argue that CGI was invented to make spaceships, but whether you believe this or not there’s no denying that CG spacecraft have been the stars in many iconic productions, from battle sequences in Babylon5 to opening shots of Star Wars Episode 3 and more recently Avatar. For many CG artists, these epic scenes really get the blood racing. In this MODO modeling tutorial, Andy Brown pays tribute to the CG spaceship and has some fun while creating a very special vehicle.

  12. Modeling Hard Subdivision Surfaces

    Learn how to model hard surface models with multiple, interlocking parts. We start by exploring efficient ways of creating initial stand-in geometry, which will not only be an invaluable tool for testing the design of the object, but will also act as a starting point for the final model and other people in the production pipeline. We then explore the decision making processes involved in tool section and workflow as we construct part of a “mech” using Subdivision surfaces. We then use basic animation rigging in MODO to make sure the model has adequate clearances for someone else to animate.
