My First Maya Stuff

Well, I did work quite a while on these, but they are my first Maya projects. Did them for Brent's class.
This was my very first project. Yes, the classic 3d teapot.
This bug and flower was the second project. I think I drew a hundred bugs before picking this one. Above is my final image, and the one below was just an experiment. The hardest part of this was getting a Maya blinn shader to look like water. Yep, it's just a blinn. Turned onraytracing, transparency, refraction, and light absorbing and messed with them until it looked like water. It's also got a bump map. Getting the reflections just right was a trick, too.
