What you will learn
In this series of lessons we're going to build the spider robot for our Infiltrator project. In this portion of the Infiltrator project we'll use the reference art created in the previous section to construct the character geometry. We'll take the design we've settled on and build it up in Maya using a variety of modeling tools. We'll start out by creating a large library of mechanical pieces that we can use to add detail and fill in open areas at our discretion. Then we'll build the large shell pieces and begin to put it together using our geometry library. We'll also talk about naming and grouping geometry appropriately and reusing geometry to save time. Once done, we'll have the geometry for our Infiltrator robot that we can then rig, animate and integrate into our video.
