Modelling is an important aspect of computer graphics that enables a 3D artist to design and visualize space environments. A practical demonstration for modelling covers how to create an ancient temple and its elements using the reference images technique and the role of 3ds Max software tools such as the spline tool and the polygon tool to model elements. Specific other elements you will learn about to enhance your ancient temple are the mirror tool and fillet tool to mirror objects and make outlines of an image rounder and the texturing technique to add texture to models. Using shadows is also very important in designing photorealistic graphics and this is done by the ambient occlusion rendering technique which also improves aerial perspective. The rock generator plugin is the next piece of content discussed after which you will learn how to do your post-production edits using Photoshop.
