PIE 1 Art- Modeling

Pick one of the Metroid ship redesigns from the 13 provided and recreate it in 3D in Maya. For this first step, just focus on the model, do not worry about textures or lighting or anything else. Use between 6,000 and 7,000 tris.

I box modeled the ship in parts, very roughly matching the shape. As you can see, I had several revisions all in the same scene as I tweaked the shape and the number of tris I was using.

The “revisions” mentioned in the image descriptions refer to the numbered save files I have for each model. For example, I have seven different files, each being more complete than the last, with the seventh being the final model that I turned in.

Tris: 5,522
