The first school assignment. Create a train within Maya and let it drive with the use of constrains.
This was the first time I used Maya but I have worked in different 3D software as 3ds Max and Cinema 4D. My idea was to make an old steam locomotive ‘green arrow’.
The story is about an abounded train station with a sidetracked train, which made his last ride years ago. But the train will be brought back to life when a spirit in the shape of a sphere touches the train. After 2 or 3 lessons with Houdini I decided to make the spirit in it.
After I created the model I tried to give it a rusty feeling by texturing it in Mari.
My goal was to create the train as realistic as possible. In terms of modeling I was reasonably happy but with the texturing and the final result I was less happy.
