Ivelix - 3d mecha project
This is my third Maya modeling project. This is my own creation, with lots of inspiration from the Gelgoog and Zaku mechs from Gundam. I got a lot more modeling practice out of this, and I also learned how to do some basic rigging.

Gasmask 3D

Here's my second Maya project for more modeling practice. I created this by looking at a few real world photos of gas masks, and then altering the designs to give the model a little bit of a space+alien feel.

Undertow 3D
Undertow 3D - complete (rendered)
I've been learning 3d modeling using Maya, and this is my first completed mini-project, which is an attempt at creating a 3d version of Tool's Undertow album art.

The model was created mostly by extruding polygon faces along curves to create an overall polygonal model. Then I converted this to subdivs to smooth things out.

Four spotlights were used for this scene. Two for highlighting the side tentacles, one for the top-front highlight, and one above for overall lighting and shadows.
