Maya is the answer. Maya (or Autodesk Maya, having recently been acquired by Autodesk) is powerful 3D modeling, animation, texturing, rendering and visual effects software. Maya was developed for the film industry and is now being used for design, visual effects, games, film, animation, visualization and simulation. The most significant thing that sets it apart from other 3D packages — and the reason it is used so widely in these major industries — is that it is highly customizable.

Here is the long awaited tute on her eyes.

Blizzard's Warcraft - The Night Elf

When rendering something like a human face, it's still more a task of using my observation skills and there is much less depending on the software itself to give me that pleasing render. When I started making material for the Elf's eyeballs, I looked at a great many photographs with similar lighting conditions to that which I used in my scene, so I’d already imagined what the final result should look like.

I made the material for the eyes reflective, but not too much so. Just enough so it would only pick up the strongest light sources and not reflect everything in the scene. I placed some small light-emitting objects right in front of the eyes, so they did not effect the overall scene lighting, to simulate some partially obscured light in front of her face. For a better close-up, it’s probably a better idea to use a light-emitting image for some more believable details. Here is a picture of the light-emitting objects in the scene.

So, during my 2 weeks break I decided to make a Ferrari F2 as part of my modeling reel. I still have a long way to go to be considered a good modeler, but I hope this model will steer me to do better works in the future. I am only going to show you the modeling and texturing aspects of this project, and hope you guys will like it. Getting Started Compile as much reference materials you can find on the internet or if the object you want to model is near you, photograph it.

Modeling Before I start modeling, I would like to share a very basic thing while modeling hard surface objects.
