daisycakes4 says:

My colors did not turn out like your final project, at all… I kinda had to make them up on my own. The final render does not look as realistic as yours. Do you have the uploaded colors/skins you used? Or do you have any advice for the final color setting.

Thanks for the video. I just installed maya 2017 student version and when i click on Polygon cube, I get a cube right infront of me. How are you getting a plane first which then can be easily manipulated? Would be a big help. Thanks.

Augustinas Tumenas says:

Hello. When making polygon mesh I have encountered a problem. When the roof of the house is created the mesh form is slightly irregular and formed with not straight lines. I tries to uncheck the creative creation in the polygons creation tool but it’s still the same. This is very annoying when I try to fit all the parts together. Those parts are uneven and it’s hell of a job to straighten and align all the vertexes manually. Does somebody have a solution to this?

Moonlight Bay Studios says:

Many thanks for this! It was a big help 😀

Shahzaib Jamro says:

It would be better if we can see what you’re tapping onto i mean like which hotkey and etc
