This is the thirty-second in a series of brief videos on how to use Autodesk Maya to create animated projects. The videos are meant for beginners and each one focuses on a specific topic. This video is a little different in that it gives a quick overview of the creation of a model of a Moai statue. Moais were made by native residents of Rapa Nui in the Pacific Ocean several hundred years ago.) It then then compares a stone and a metal material finish for the Moai - and at how fundamental a difference this makes in the statue's visual impact. I do not cover the process step by step, as the techniques used to make the model have all been covered in previous videos - but importantly, it was made with a very small subset of polygon and subdivision tools.
