mammals and insects

The Mammals are non-uniform rational basis spline (NURBS). It is a mathematical model used for generating curves and surfaces.  In Maya, students were to use the SCULPTING tool in order to propose an organic rendering of a human creature.  In 3D imaging, Polygons propose a set of geometry tools that allow two-dimensional shape with multiple sides to be connected at vertices and to enclose the shape. In this exercise, students were to model a complete insect’s fine and complex detailing from opening a single polygon’s mathematical structure.
