This tutorial will go through the process of modelling a car in Maya. It will focus on all major stages of hard surface model creation. First, we’ll look at how to start with Maya and how to navigate and use different tools. Then we will start modelling a Toyota Rav4 with reference images. Once we've created the model, we'll unfold UV-s and prepare the model for texturing. We will texture the car in substance painter and make test renders.
