hehe, you're more than welcome zico_samagoria. Most of the time though my advice is probably just mediocre. The more advaced users probably get a kick out of seeing me trying to answer everyone's questions. But it helps me learn and improves my problem solving skills if you know what I mean. I started 3d a few months ago, so keep that in mind just in case I do end up giving you some bad advice, hehe.
Anyway, I agree with Jr. Who about the lighting. The right lighting can really make your model look alot better. And I think the opposite is true as well, that bad lighting can make a good model look really bad. I've been working with lights a bit lately and I'll tell you, it can be a real pain. Just keep playing with all the settings and moving the light(s) around.
I'm bad with lighting but I come across anything helpful, I'll let you know. Good luck!!!
Don't be satisfied with what you can do but rather strive to do the things you can't do!
