Modeling and Rendering Cute Characters in Maya 2020
In this tutorial, I will show you how to create TWO FUN, CUTE, CARTOON CHARACTERS in Maya 2020.
But first I begin by showing you some of the basic tools in Maya, like how to navigate the camera, how to set up your viewport in preparation to do some modeling, and how to use some of Maya’s most common modelling tools, like the:
- EXTRUDE TOOL
- MULTI-CUT TOOL
- MIRROR TOOL

Then we move on to do some modeling.
Firstly, we block out the character shapes, then complete the process by adding details and learning how to use correct geometry so your models look clean and professional.
The next step is to use the UV Editor to create nice, clean UV maps for the characters. Having great UVs are important for when it comes to texturing.
I will show you how to texture in Maya using a variety of ways, mainly using various nodes inside the HYPERSHADE, and using the 3D Paint Tool.
Finally, I will show you how to set up the lighting, and how to create nice, clean, gorgeous renders of your models.
