Maya 3D Masterclass - Modeling a 3D Sci-Fi Vehicle in Maya

This comprehensive course is over 23 hours long and dives deep into the modeling tools in Maya.

I begin with showing you the three most common modeling tools in Maya:

  • Bevel Tool

  • Multi-Cut Tool

  • Extrude Tool

And from that point on we dive deep into modeling the famous Landspeeder from Star Wars.

We begin by blocking out the basic shape of the Landspeeder. We will block out the main body, or the chassis as it's usually called, followed by the wings, the cockpit area and the wings.

Then we will move on to the next step and add details to all of the Landspeeder parts - the turbine engines, the cockpit, the repulsor vents, every inch of the model.

Along the way I will show you my modeling techniques. The instructions are clear and precise, and easy to follow along. I will explain my techniques and why I use them.

Then we will dive into how to set up the camera, how to set up the lighting and finally, we will be rendering the Landspeeder so you will end up with a professional looking model you can add to your showreel.

So let's dive into this course and become a master at 3D modeling in Maya.
