In this course, instructor Stephen Wells walks us through the initial modeling stages of this hard surface tank vehicle inside of Maya. Here he extrudes and subdivides both polygon primitives and custom polygonal shapes as he builds out the forms and shapes for the individual parts of this sci-fi tank model. (Students - please look under Section 1 / Lecture 1 downloads for the source files associated with the lesson.)
