If you want to become a 3d environment artist, you need to create your own ORIGINAL assets and props using the industry standard software.
Using existing 3d assets you've downloaded from various marketplaces is not going to cut it.
No one wants to see the same environment asset or prop being over and over again by everyone else. You might be able to get away with it for a bit but you always know you didn't create anything in your environment. You constructed it using someone else's work.
And let's be honest - we all want to create our own custom 3d work from scratch. It's the only way you truly say: “I CREATED THAT!”
There are many 3d modeling software out there. These include Maya, 3dsMax, Blender, Modo, Cinema4D and many others.
All of them have their strengths and a large devoted community of users. But there is only ONE that has been the standard 3d software for over 20+ years and it is Autodesk Maya.
Maya is used in production pipelines for video games, film, medical field, architecture, simulations and many other industries.
It is used by AAA studios, independent studios, freelancers and hobbyist.
Maya is difficult software to learn as a complete beginner.
You can use Maya to model, UV, rig, animate, create visual effects and render with. Each of these would require its own separate tutorial course to cover. Because of this, you don't know what you should learn first and where to even begin.
There are 3 things you need to focus when learning Maya for environment creation.
First is learning how to get started using Maya. This includes viewport navigation, working with polygon objects, snapping objects, modifying pivot points, blocking out environments using basic shapes, building environments to scale and becoming comfortable using Maya.
Second is learning all the polygonal modeling techniques and tools. These include extrude, bevel, Boolean operations, inserting edges, creating additional cuts, circularize, bridge, target weld and many more. All these will give you the control over modeling any environment or prop.
Third is learning how to UV or Unwrap your models. UVing or UV Unwrapping is a method of making sure textures will appear on your models correctly. UVing is probably the most misunderstood and frustrating concept to grasp for beginners. But don't worry, I show you exactly what you need to know and how to do it. Many techniques and tips are covered to make sure you understand the UVing process.
You DO NOT need to attend online classes or go to college to learn Maya for 3d environment creation. With the right tutorial course and instructions you can learn how to use Maya, how to model and UV in one immersive weekend.
I understand how difficult this software is for a beginner, because I was once that frustrated beginner.
I've been teaching Maya since 2008 on World of Level Design. I've also taught Maya as a college instructor in a very intensive program at Dave School in Orlando, teaching complete beginners on how to use Maya from scratch in a very short amount of time.
I've seen what beginners struggle with Maya first hand. I don't want you to struggle. I want you to learn Maya quickly. I structured this tutorial course in a way that I know what you need to learn in what order. Everything is methodically presented from one video to the next so you learn exactly what you need to know.
Most importantly, tutorials have been live tested with hundreds of beginner students who never used Maya before.
What you have here is a home-study course packed with direct how-to knowledge gathered from years of experience. Nothing is left to chance. This is the most direct to the point modeling and UVing tutorial home-study course you will ever find.
I've packed years of knowledge into "Maya Foundation" course and I am giving you 30 days to let it digest, integrate it into your daily life and make sure this is working for you.
Try the entire course. 30 days is enough time to take the course twice and then decide. If you don't LOVE it, I insist that you get 100% of your money back.
It's simple. Buy the course and try it for yourself. If you don't learn how to model and UV with Maya then I want you to email me. Just let me know why you didn't like the course and how I could have made it better.

Frequently asked questions. Click on each tab to read more.
Maya 2023 was used to record the course.
Previous version of Maya will also work with this course as nearly all modeling and UVing tools are the same. With the exception of the new updated Booleans in 2023. But I've included a video to show how legacy Booleans work prior to 2023.
"How do I get Maya to learn for free?"
If you are a student you can get access to Autodesk products that includes Maya for 1 full year, for free.
Or you can do free trial of Maya for 30 days.
"How do I learn Maya if I can't afford it."
There is a big misunderstanding that Maya is too expensive. It's not. If you decide to purchase Maya there are few options you have.
If you want to use Maya as a hobbyist, freelancer or indie developer and you make under $100,000 per year with Maya you qualify to get the indie version.
