so i havent been on here for quite a while now so i thought i would post up a model i have started in the last few days.

Desktop Fan "SHARPER IMAGE DESIGN"

spent a bit of time on it done so far in two spurts of modeling, modeling almost finished, will have a go at texturing it aswell and lighting it nice.
i like to composite so i may even try to comp into a live plate of my room

comments and crits welcome

yeah - nice job pbman - and good to see you back. the bottom edge looks like it maybe needs a few more subdivisions. really like the design - might be a good starting off point for a dalek style robot.

arran - could you be a bit more specific on the bottom edge you are referring to, since this is nurbs its hard for me to tell in the viewports

i was referring to the bottom edge of the main body and the torus shape at the bottom - it looks a little bit bumpy / jagged to me in the top image - though looking at it again it doesn't look as bad as i first thought.
