Thought it might be fun to show my VERY first foray into Maya yesterday. I played with Maya for about 3 hours and then tried to model a few items from around my house--nail polish, a box, and a spoon. It was way more difficult than I thought it would be, especially tackling with annoying geometry problems (that eventually, caused my very first crash). I actually found it harder trying to remodel them today and got worse results... so, it's just going to be a lot more practice until I get this beast figured out.
Can't wait to try and get these UV'd and textured.
