I began the pre-viz of my story today in Maya. It seemed to come together pretty quickly as the kitchen is mainly made up of planes and cubes. I've used the pre-modeled characters from Alan's tutorials but just adapted them to suit my characters. Both have been given chequered trousers and white chefs jackets. I've tried to make the pot wash boy slightly shorter and plumper and the pastry chef taller and thinner with an added tote and moustache! I need to add more props and textures and then I will begin animating.
Once added into the scene, I made him even plumper and much shorter
