3D Barrels


In this lesson I was making a barrel asset for an alley way. I created the barrel in Maya 3D. To help give me an idea of how to create the barrel I got a picture reference of a barrel from Google and imported it into Maya. I then inserted a cylinder Polygon to be the base shape of my barrel.  I then used Extrude to create the parts of the barrel that come out of it.

I had some trouble using some tools such as the Bevel which is used to move parts of the object, you have created, around to add more detail. Even though I did have trouble with it, I managed to figure out how to use the tool and make my barrel more detailed.

If I have time to come back to my barrel I would at some texture to my barrel to make it look more realistic.
