    DO NOT WORK ON ANY OTHER ASSIGNMENTS TODAY OR TOMORROW EXCEPT THIS ONE!!!!!

    Today we are going to have a friendly competition using 3D Max and Photoshop.  You will have two days to model a boat in 3D Max and use Photoshop to make materials for your boat.  The goal is to make the most realistic looking boat with the highest amount of detail possible. You will only have two days to complete this.

    Rules:

    - You may use any modeling tools in 3D Max you would like.

    - You may look up how to do specific things in 3D Max and Photoshop

    - You may NOT use tutorials or step by step instructions on how to make a boat in 3D Max

    - You must use only materials you make yourself in Photoshop (you may not use pictures or materials found on the internet)

    - You may model any type of boat you would like but the more realistic and detailed the boat the better the results will be

    - You may NOT use any downloaded models or parts of a model (you must make everything yourself)

    Watch the following tutorial. Don't forget to turn in the tutorial!!!!!!  These tutorials cover basic modifiers in 3D max.  In these tutorials I only cover a few modifiers however, there are many modifiers for almost all situations and shapes.  Follow along with this tutorial and turn it in as "3D Max Basic Modify".  
     
    Once complete, add other things to your town that use modifiers (you should add at least 5 other items using modifiers).  
     
    Don't forget to keep a record on your work document about the things that you add to your town. You should summarize the modeling techniques that you use and how you used them. 
     
    Also, if you are not sure about a modifier, open a new 3D max file and try it out before you try to add it to your town.
     
     
     
     
     
    When you complete this, open a new 3D Max file, create a landscape with hills and put materials on the ground, rocks, trees, etc. to make them look as real as possible. Save this to your unfinished folder as "landscape".  We will be using it on a later assignment.

    Make sure you have watched all the tutorials assigned up to this point.  You should have added something from each tutorial to your town.  Open a word document, call it 3D town and list each thing you added based on a tutorial and beside it tell me how you created it.  Example: light pole - Bend modifier.
     
                                          
     
    When you complete this project, work on your town and include items that have not previously been suggested.
