hey, mind if I c+C?

The modeling is great. You work really fast and you sure as hell get nice results.

But-

The lighting is not so good as of yet. If you are striving for a good nighttime lighting, then tell me and I can help.

If you just haven't worked on lighting then- I am sorry, very sorry!!!!

Great porgress, looking foreward for more,
Matt

It's looking really cool Yoda, I think you should post your little character dude up as well, he's looking cool. Only thing that strikes me as odd in the scene is the curtains. It may be the surface material or the lighting but they appear a bit too bumpy.

Looking pretty good so far on the modeling!

The only thing I could suggest is that you try and keep it low on the poly count as you animate as you said you had problems in your challenge thread, keep the high ploys for rendering rarther than scene building, if you know what I mean, as I will help you out in the long run with the speed of animating.

Masteryoda, your PC must be billowing out smoke the rate you model!!!

I really like the look of the room so far, I'm sure we'll all see it finished pretty soon!! I like the style you've with using GI Joe, I used it a fair bit before I got Maya 7 (4.5 not having mentalray and all), I thought it had all but dissapeared before you started posting here!

I've only got one concern with your model so far and that's the shape of the beer glass, it just doesn't look quite right. At the end of the day though I suppose glasses come in all shapes and sizes so it doesn't really matter!

Keep it up,

Mat.
