Like the car, and the watch. Watch looks like it would be cool to texture and light and render...lots of shiny materials, glass, reflections...etc

Very nice car, makes for a very interesting model to look at.
I love watches, they're amazing little pieces of art. Funny to see one on the site and it's coming along really nicely. Is it gonna be a mechanical one? I just saw a great ad somewhere a few hours ago that I found quite inspirational so I thought I'd post it here

They were indeed, the amount of work that goes into building a mechanical watch is amazing. Dave collects watches so we spend a fair bit of time admiring the craftmanship, nothing quite as flash as the one in the ad in his collection though. We looked up that specific one and it retails at around $100 000, so I'd say they got a pretty good artistic team together to create the ad for it as well.

Inspirational, and then again it got me feeling slightly depressed when I looked at my own render I was working on that I thought looked quite good until I saw that thing

Anyway, look forward to seeing more of the watch as you go along with or without mechanics,

@ Joey: Sorry, I'll just hijack your thread for a moment

@ Ben: You don't, and it's a bit ridiculous because I work 16 hour days 7 days a week and most of that time is spent in Maya. I don't really have a life anymore We're working on the new site at the moment and you'll see a lot more of it there, I've lit and rendered a lot of the tutorial banners for the modeling and texturing section. Most of what I've been doing for the past year has gone into creating tutorials for sm, so I can't post it up in the WIP section. I've made a lot of content on architectural visualisations and lighting and rendering interiors and exteriors, it's what I enjoy most, so a lot of my work will start showing up in tutorials over the next few months, we just need to get the new site up first. But basically my Maya work is focused on creating materials, lighting and rendering, I'm a poor modeler and build only what I need for lighting purposes.
You should check out maxwell btw because I've seen a lot of nice lighting work you've posted http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDckmcYzmqI
It's an amazing piece of software and I think the demo is beautiful. I'm trying to learn it at the moment but it's difficult because apart from a few short tuts on their site there's not really any training for it, we'd love to create some in the future.
Personally I prefer 2d to 3d though, I got a new tablet a few months back and barely slept for a week because I was busy in ps I love cartoons and I've been drawing strips on and off for years with traditional pen and paper, that's how David tricked me into learning Maya. I had no computer skills at all when I first started, I could barely check my own e-mail, so I really struggled in the beginning and there was a lot of tears here. What I'd love to do over the next year when I get some more time is to develop my original cartoon concept in cg and create a website for it.

@Bullet: It's more of an obsession, this thing with collecting watches Just like cg they have forums and all the same things.
