Hi Mike 😀
I just want to say thank you for your tutorials!
Im a german Student from Bavaria studying interactive media. We also have to work with maya. And since I started waching your Videos I love 3D modeling!
Thank you lot!

Fabersoul says:

so with hard surface modelling it doesnt have to be one singe mesh? as in with a human head you need to have it connect and resolve perfectly but with say a house you can make separate pieces and just put them together?

Mikey Middleton says:

As someone who’s starting out, this was super informative for loads of little issues I have coming from someone who works more literally with stuff like inventor which is more creating shapes from lines, not from polygons.

I recently installed Mental ray and was wondering where you got all your awesome sky images?
Thanks a lot and keep it coming 🙂
