Watches have evolved from utilitarian accessories to wearable art, and the combination of their inner precision, jeweled faces and beautifully beveled cases make watches the object of endless fascination by collectors and anyone who appreciates great design. This tutorial series has been created for the beginning modo user who wants a project-based approach to learning modo that will provide a foundation for further learning. Through the construction of a watch, strap and buckle you will utilize expert-recommended techniques that will serve you well as you develop your skills as a 3D designer or artist.
This series of downloadable video tutorials has been especially designed for the beginning modo user who is serious about learning modo, and the series is far more than a “tour” of modo. The tutorial starts with modeling the watch using Subdivision surfaces and using techniques including Symmetry, Falloffs and Action Centers. Attention is paid to the important concepts of scaling and organizing the items you create. By the time the watch, strap and buckle are done; you will have a basic grounding in regular polygon, and SubD modeling techniques. The tutorial does not stop at modeling though. The following videos show you how to pose the watch and set up a scene by introducing environments and lighting. You will then be introduced to creating UV maps and painting textures inside of modo. Next is the fun task of developing materials so you can produce a final render. It’s a complete project that includes everything you need, including texture maps, geometry and even the completed 3D watch model itself.
