The 3D design software Maya is a must-learn program for entertainment artists. This is used with pretty much all production pipelines from 3D animated films to simpler 2D animations like South Park. The author Adam Watkins teaches you all about the interface and the various tools you can use in Maya. This is very helpful just so you understand why Maya is so popular and what it can do. Early chapters talk about modeling and setting up scenery for a mock video game. This also covers organic modeling for creatures, lighting, rendering, complex textures, and even some basic animation. This book assumes no prior knowledge of Maya or any 3D design program.
