Here's a short video I made that goes over my favorite rope building technique, which was developed by my friend and co-worker Cristian Dumitriu:
I posted a 3d modeling video series on YouTube. It's about five hours long... and it's also in the "Library" section of this website now. Here's the scoop
Intro to Maya and 3D Modeling is a series of videos (five hours total) that covers the basics of using Maya and some of the fundamental principals of 3d modeling. I created these videos in the spring of 2013 with the intention of using them in an online course that I was putting together under my own brand. Unfortunately life got in the way and I ended up being much too busy to follow through. I discovered the videos on my laptop recently (after almost completely forgetting about them) and figured they might be helpful to some aspiring 3d artists. Please forgive any false starts and/or lack of editing, they're pretty raw. The first video in the series is embedded below, to view the full playlist use the link at the start of this paragraph.
