Maya Modelling Mishap

 Decided to try modelling a human head, wish I'd never started.

Check out those crazy edges, there are doubled up vertices and all sorts in there and I have no idea how I did it. I'm probably better off starting again than trying to fix it.
Hmm... Or I could say I meant to do that, and it's a model of Kryten from Red Dwarf.

Playing around in maya, I made a model of a Mk 6 kevlar helmet with a desert dpm cover and some goggles.

UV mapping is a pain the butt. Since it started at a sphere the texture wound itself around the pole at the top and I had to use a photoshop effect to counter it, I don't think I did too badly there, it still has a seam down the side where the pattern doesnt match up, but the real thing is stitched together anyway. There's also a pretty ridiculous bump map thrown in there.

I made my own texture for the desert dpm, here it is if anyone wants it:

Oddly, on an incorrectly colour profiled monitor, the light brown background looks pink.

So there's this guy, his name is Joe O'brien and like many others he got screwed over by The Man.
Now, I know what you're thinking, why does The Man always have to step on the people? Damn it, down with The Man!

But wait, because Joe is a Professional Photographer, and if there's anyone The Man is doing a favour for by stepping all over them, its a Professional Photographer, because they can get a nice dramatic black and white shot of The Man's boot treads, to be reproduced by underground gorrila print presses to inspire the oppressed masses.

But mostly he takes pictures of sexy ladies in PVC clothes. also extreme sports.
Check it out now.
