This independent study investigates Maya's capabilities, a computer graphics software. It discuses modeling, rigging, texturing, animation, rendering, and many other effects. It also explains how Maya's script language (MEL) can be used to create customized computer generated graphics. In addition, it creates a 3D animation based on a historic 2D Korean Drawing, The Scenery of Dano Day by Shin Yun-Bok. This involves several steps including: using Photoshop for base images; exporting these images to Maya for 3D modeling; generating a character; animating movement with Maya GUI and script language; rendering the scene; and video editing with Premiere Pro.
