Cartoony Ice Cream Cone Thingy

By Travis Pflanz | February 13, 2012 | 2 Comment


Well, I know I cannot expect to jump right in and create an animation from day 1. The first step, learning the controls.

Last night I found a pretty good YouTube user () who makes very solid Maya videos, so I followed his Maya Tutorial: Basics 5 part intro to the controls of Maya.

In the end, we created a 3D cartoony ice cream cone. It was much more difficult than I thought to shape the ice cream into a non-symmetrical shape, but still make it look like an ice cream cone… and I’m not even sure I did a great job with it.

But, gotta start somewhere, right? Practice means perfect… and any other cliché I can throw at it!

    Is it animated yet?

    No animation, just a 3d rendering. This is going to be more difficult than I thought… Well, that’s kind of a lie. I expect it to be immensely difficult.

    Nice screen name, Greg!
