Hey! For this assignment I needed to model, texture, and render a pencil. This assignment was mostly focused on learning how UV and texture properly. I ran into a very significant problem while working on the project. I started the project in class with a set of video tutorials that were later taken down. New updated tutorials were posted before I finished my project, so when I came back to it to finish it I was extremely lost. While this was initially very jarring, the issues that it led to were probably for the best. For instance, I regularly ran into an issue where I needed to go back to something that I had already textured and replace it’s shader with the newer Arnold shader. I did this several times and feel that I am more familiar with the way that materials and shaders work in Maya.
