Here's some stuff I did in Maya a year ago when I was stumping for a job. I didn't get a 3d job, I got a web job that probably pays better than any junior 3d position I would have gotten. I'm just putting this stuff up as proof that I'm not lying when I say that I learned Maya. The idea was that I modeled a throne room then gave it a "good" atmosphere and a "bad" atmosphere. So here it is, the project that killed my enthusiasm for doing 3d for the past year.
