Default Twisted X-Mas - brian_ellebracht

Hello. Unless you can tell me another way of signing off, then I am stuck right now as speedy. I am at work and I can't access my cookies on this computer. so I can't clear them. Well, anyways, I decided to get an early start on my environment for this months contest. while I am at work. I did this during my lunch break, so I have about an hours worth of work involved, but there is allot more to come (including the Santa) so its not so evil...yet. Let me know what you think. I will update when I get a chance. Thanks,
Brian

I Know the colors don't help at all (I am going to change them) but the style of Modeling that I am going for is going to be similar to Nightmare Before Christmas. I will be posting an update shortly.
thanks
Brian

Thanks ducky. I am going to ad christmas lights, around the house, they are going to be in color But I might just make the light bulb glow instead of actually making a light for each one, make take a while to render. lol. I am also going to ad a wreath on the door, it wil also be color. Wait till you see my Santa , it will probably be one of my better characters.
Thanks,
Brian

no problem. i dont mind big pictures, but some people are on 800x600 screen resolution - and for them it would be nice to have pics at most 600 pixel. and in the guidlines of this challenge is something about the 600x440. so not my idea

and if you worry about the detail, keep some surprises for last shot ( i think it will be again in 1024x768) - and you can make a blow up of a detail if you want to show how great the nose hair of santa is coming alive
