Welcome to the course, lets jump right in...

3D MODELING

1
Setting Up the Reference Image

We begin by bringing in our reference image.

2
Modeling the Shell - Part 1

Using curves and extrude we build the top part of the shell.

3
Modeling the Shell - Part 2

We build the bottom part of our shell by extruding the edges and shaping our points to the reference image.

4
Modeling the Head - Part 1

Using the basic box primitive we create the top and bottom pieces for our head.

5
Modeling the Head - Part 2

Next, we will connect the top and bottom meshes using the bridge tool and continue sculpting our head.

6
Building the Eyes - Part 1

We finish modeling our head, added nice cheeks and then started on our eyes.

7
Building the Eyes - Part 2

In this lesson we connected our eye mesh to the head.

8
Mirroring the Face

We finish sculpting the eye and continue by mirroring our geometry to the other side.

9
Sculpting the Body - Part 1

We will extrude the necessary geometry out of our head mesh to create the basic body base shape.

10
CORRECTION - MESH SMOOTH TOOL
11
Sculpting the Body - Part 2

Add more resolution to our base mesh.

12
Sculpting the Body - Part 3

We add volume to our base shape and continue sculpting by following the reference image.

13
Tongue and Teeth

Finally we extrude the teeth on our adorable snail character, build the tongue, and clean up our outliner.

UV MAPPING AND TEXTURING

1
Unwrapping uvs - Part 1

We start with the shell, then move to unwrapping the tongue and the eyes.

2
Unwrapping uvs - Part 2

We continue to unwrapping our character and learn about hiding and showing a specific selection of polygons.

3
Unwrapping uvs - Part 3
4
Unwrapping uvs - Layout
5
Texture in Photoshop

Lets export our beautiful uvs out of maya and quickly paint them in Photoshop.

RIGGING AND ANIMATION

1
Building the Snail Skeleton

We will build a basic skeleton using joints in order for us to animate our snail.

2
Bind the skeleton to our mesh

We use the bind skin tool and then make a few small adjustments using the paint skin weights tool.

3
Creating an idle animation

We will create a silly idle animation for our cartoon snail character.

4
Creating a walking animation

Finally, lets add a walking animation.

5
The End!

Yay! You did it, congratulations... now you must practice your newly learned skills and make your own awesome characters! :)
