Default My First Solo Model

I've done two tutorials....the dragon head and another small one....this is my first solo attempt at one. Its supposed to be a Twin Sky Pod ship from Cloud City in the movie Empire Strikes Back....I havent done any bump mapping or texturing yet...not sure how to do it but I added some color and transparency on the windows.

Any constructive critisism would be welcomed! Be gentle...I've only been using Maya for 2 weeks.

Yes it does look good, but you can tell you used shaders that got distorted in some parts, or bad UV layout. But keep it up.

yeah when I added texture to it using lambert i played with the UV texture just for the experience.....looks like a big orange watermelon :p

Thought the Sky Pod was perfect for first time try since the shape was simple to achieve and since it was a twin pod ...using the duplicate was fun. I tried to use some lighting inside the cab with the transparent windows I put there but the light wouldnt show...not sure how to make a transparent object truly transparent I think.
