It is my second year, first semester....

We were been assigned to do a keychain with the picture given by lecture.
Show at below: The software to create the model willl be as below..
Software: 3ds Max 2010
This is our first modelling assignment,

Which allow us learn how to model the shape of the product itself...
Its my first time to interact with 3D software..

Duration of time for me to complete this assignmeent is 2 weeks.

Its kinda long for me, or a designer..
Because.. this is a very basic and simple modelling assignment..

Through this assignment i learnt the techinique of how to model a 3D model in better way and fast.

Learn from error..
Finally....my final work is:

Basically, lecturer just request for a basic model,

without mapping and render setting.

But i perfer my model with some nice lighting, material look ...

So i added material, and render setting(mental ray) on it.



Hope you all like the very first 3D design master piece. :)

Reason of choosing Chinese New Year:

Spring Season....
Its a season that gather family, relative together.

The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first month
in the Chinese calender and ends on the 15th.

In the Chinese New Year period...
Children will be very happy of it,
Cause the adult will giving o0ut the red packet as a wish and bless of the year.

The adult will have the opportunity to meet the siblings
cause in the Chinese New Year eve there is a reunion dinner in every family.
They will share their happiness by jokes and story.

In this season, every family member try their best to keep the tradition..
because, in Chinese New Year there is some rule to restrain....
The rules that keep the wealth, happiness of the year..
Its a good tradition which involve every member of family....

Work it out to be a good year ....
It will keep the family always be close :)

The whole design concept is base on simple and relax(but not the process :D ).
