start working on next week’s class. Final project is a combination of environment/vehicle and character animation. Write a 1 to 3 paragraph proposal for your character/envi/vehicle combination. Also, prepare a digital file (word, pages, or any note-taking software) or a physical notebook for keeping track of your process/progress using Maya and/or Blender. Software packages are ever changing (updating/upgrading) and you want to keep notes and process in a “searchable” fashion (which is the reason I recommend a digital file). It will save you many headaches! Note: I will set up Wordpress as a way to submit your assignment for critique and comment for last week (week 1 - furniture) - more to come in instructions over the weekend of August 26 to 28 to your emails. September 2 Week 2 Critique of furniture project and introduction of new project: environment/vehicle. Note: I will not be available in campus for this week. Dr. Dene will bring a Modeler guess lecturer to cover this class. See instructions above (week 1) for assignment.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
