Cycling Dreams, Learning Autodesk Maya

Learning Autodesk Maya has been both exhilarating and challenging as an Artist. Before a year ago extruding or moving a vertices was foreign to me. Today I enjoy making small narrative stories with the skills I have learned so far.

I took a a cylinder primitive and then animated it to perform an interesting rhythmic movement. Next, I placed it into a MASH and added random and color nodes. I then took a camera an animated various viewpoints and perspectives.

On the more conceptual side of things, I was exploring the feeling of something that doesn’t belong, what does a dream of an internal struggle look like.

“Feeling at once agitated and confused, your self-torturing reflections, and the emotions accompanying them, whirl ’round and ’round. And although you crave some sort of closure to the stormy commotion inside your brain, no “truce” seems practical. For there’s an almost perfect balance—or more accurately, tension—between the positives and negatives of each alternative you’re anguishing over.” – Leon F. Seltzer, Ph.D.
