So here are the columns which I need to work on more. I tried to bevel them for instance but there seems
to be a problem with the edges.
This is my first lantern attempt. It's way too simple so I will go for a more interesting look like the one above.
All in all there is a lot of stuff in Maya I am not aware of like how to make swirls for the lanterns or how to solve my bevel problems.I will be asking Alan for his advice so I can progress in my modelling work.
