well, kinda hard to judge, as it's fairly obvious that the fire is the "Create > Fire" command, so there wasn't much in the way of work there.

Other than that, a sphere and a plane aren't too difficult. For understanding how Maya works, I'm sure this was useful, but I look forward to seeing more complicated work from you. My recomendation is to focus on polygonal modeling first.

Looking forward to it.

true, one thing I'd say is where is the light on the plane generated by the fire?

That's a good start for a first project. It's a very good scene to practice basic lighting on.

Welcome to SM! :thumbsup:

hehe ... element_khaos was responding to my post ... (wondering about the unlimited version) ..

yes, nothing against sharing (as long one doesnt use it in a comercial way) and the PLE watermark gives one a headache anyway, i only said something because he was writing it in the picture ...
