Day 53-10/7

Today me and my gf spend a good chunk of time learning how to generate forms based on lines within 3DS Max. We spent almost 5 hours on a 26minute tutorial lol. We learned a lot though, the software has very intricate methods to generate very different shapes in a calculated base. It was very good to learn it together with my gf because sometimes one of us couldn't get it and the other was able to help.

Days 54 and 55 - 11-12/7

These two days I focused again on my Zclassroom Helmet. The teacher usually start every new class with modifications on the model out of nowhere and i have to spend too much time trying to build mine to look similar. Since it doesn't show how he did it, it gets really frustrating because the shapes doesn't really match the model. At least it's good for practicing the brush effects on surface.

Day 56 - 14/7

Spent a looooot of time learning to project textures directly on the surface of the model. I screwed up a lot of times and got really frustrated but in the end i could nail down the technique. Slow baby steps everyday.

Day 57 - 15/7 

Today I spent the night with my gf and we studied a little bit of primitive object modelling into 3DS Max. I tried a simple render and got a really nice output, Vray is such a powerful rendering software.

Day 62 - 20/7 

Now i'm learning to generate special brushes to fine detail and polish the model, called alphas. This last class taught me one that gives a fine half-circle dent on the model.

Day 65 - 23/7 

I was feeling a bit burned out with my helmet. So I came to my GF's to take care of her after she got a teeth surgery and she suggested me to try and build some cups off zbrush to see how much I've improved since the first day. I was quite happy with the results and it shows how much I was able to learn since day 1.
