If you thought Angelina Jolie was responsible for Lara Croft's curves, think again! Long before the Hollywood actress brought the Tomb Raider heroine to life, Alias' 3D modeling software Maya was used to create the lovely Lara; Ms. Jolie simply filled in her curves! When you're ready to start creating equally compelling characters of your own, you need this comprehensive volume! In these pages, gaming-industry veteran Antony Ward uses a combination of informative narrative, hands-on tutorials, and a slew of illustrations and screen shots to show you how to use Maya to address the most complex element of game creation-developing great characters! As you follow along, Antony uses the development of two diverse characters-a female figure and a fantastical character with outrageous proportions, wings, and a demon-like face-to demonstrate the techniques involved in modeling detailing, optimizing, texturing, rigging, binding, and animating characters with Maya. The companion CD includes lesson files, scripts, an automatic rigging tool, demo software, and more!


如果你認為安吉麗娜·裘莉是負責製作拉拉·克羅夫特的曲線,那你就錯了!在好萊塢女演員給這位古墓奇兵女主角帶來生命之前,Alias的3D建模軟體Maya就已經被用來創造出可愛的拉拉了;裘莉小姐只是填補了她的曲線!當你準備開始創造出同樣引人入勝的角色時,你需要這本全面的指南!在這些頁面中,遊戲業界的老手Antony Ward結合了豐富的敘述、實際操作教程以及大量插圖和螢幕截圖,向你展示如何使用Maya來處理遊戲創作中最複雜的元素-開發出優秀的角色!當你跟隨著進行學習時,Antony將通過開發兩個不同的角色-一個女性角色和一個擁有誇張比例、翅膀和魔鬼般臉龐的幻想角色-來演示使用Maya進行建模、細節處理、優化、貼圖、綁定和動畫製作的技巧。附帶的光碟包括課程文件、腳本、自動綁定工具、演示軟體等等!
