what's new at led?

Recently I have been working in Maya on two new projects. The first is a dragon and the second is a medusa . The modeling process has went very well for both, but the UVunwrapping has been a challenge due to the number of fins on the dragon and the snake heads on Medusa. Check back for future renderings as I make progress on these two projects.
