steel moai 2

A steel Moai

A model based on the Moai statues of Rapa Nui (also known as Easter Island because some white guy stumbled upon it on Easter).  The finish is a Blinn, rendered with mental ray.

Figure 4.32 the Mad Cow Dairy

A 2D cow

The cow is a polygon model, with the materials created with Maya’s “Toon” materials dropdown found on the Rendering Main Menu.  The color setting is 2; i.e., only two colors are allowed on the body of the cow, thus creating the 2D appearance.  The lettering was done within Maya under the Create > Text tool.

A 2D stylistic effect with Maya

The bottle and the glass are made with the mental ray material mia_material_x.  The white fluid is an nDynamics effect.  The ray tracing was cranked up to wash out much of the 3D appearance of the bottle and the glass.
