hmm honsetly ,the polygon tools are simply better in XSI ,some really some thing but big effect..

what i really need is to be able to set hot keys to Mjpolytools ,that will make thing alot faster

other then modeling ,i love the rigging ,animation ,paintFx, the hyper shader is nearly family for the render tree in xsi.. they are alot a like, and rendering ,with GI Joe i love it and MR is same in both hehe.. the UI are both great in both apps..

all in all ,i cant say maya kicks xsi or other way around ,both are plenty good ,i started maya as a -must- for a project with a friend (the animation of the toy-plane.. ) but now i am pretty pleased..

i think the major plus i would give maya is whole rigging and animation ,and XSI i would say the whole poly world

and yea its a su but its russian not german
and yea it does look a lot like the eagle only the eagle has his "air takers" in the front like there stuck ,while the su has it from under the wing.. imo the su looks cooler

but tomcat rules as everyone knows best aeroplane ever!
thanks.

the toy plane has a good look to it, and the render is excellent.

I think you need a little more detail in the wheels, and also maybe think about how those pieces of plastic are joined together, I know it's a toy but they have to be help together somehow.

I'm a little jaded about toy planes after my last animation... lol

Hey Wiz. I really like your modeling. Got any more examples? Toy Plane looks nice! Could you show just a little more detail on the toy plane? It might be ok, but it will look alot better with Textures, and maybe if you made the Plane have a few nicks and stuff, not in perfect shape. Nothing huege, maybe a really small dent here and there (especially if it is made out of wood) I like how most of the edges are soft (sub d's I guess?) but the Landing gear still has hard edges. Also, how is the put together? glue, nails? Something else to consider. If the wing in the back goes on a part of the body that is cut out, you may actually want to have the body cut out around the wing, because right now they are flush against each other, but there would still be a small space between the two. Hope that makes sense Just a few suggestions. Nice work!
Brian

thanks alot brian
your works are amazing about the landing gear ,right i think it does chanage the style a bit ,ill chanage that
where the back fins are at there is a cut out of the body ,but its not very visible.. its not just stuck there..
and yes ,there will be some wood paterns ,as we dont want it too be fully woody only slight.. can't really explain

and its glue ,yep.. any ideas what i can do with that?
about the back fins ,ill take them a bit up on z axis so the gap is a little more noticeable

thanks alot! for more of my works :

thanks
btw i sent you an email few days ago.. : 0
