Introduction to Maya - Rendering in Arnold
This course will look at the fundamentals of rendering in Arnold. We'll go through the different light types available, cameras, shaders, Arnold's render settings and finally how to split an image into render passes (AOV's), before we then reassemble it i

a turbine powered sailboat is an oxymoron..user added image

mate to me it needs more character.., i know its early days but.., well, something of a pirate look, a Chinese junk look, a more cartoon look.., something to ..., how can i put this.., take away the odd look of two objects that really do not belong to each other.., a character look that will unify the model

just my HO

I agree with Mr Mirek... user added image

Also think about increasing the size of the boats hull, the scale and therefore the power of the turbine will sink it in its current state.

Good start tho user added image

model looks good, but yea think about it... not only will it sink, but everyone sitting in it will get sucked up and in, and spit out the back!

haha! thanks for the replies. the unique point about this ship is its more for air travel. I kept seeing all those ships flying through the sky, sailing with the wind, and felt like making one for windless skies. itll have a mass, maybe a small sail but i want to give it a futuristic/basic jolly boat look. with metallics and woods! heres a couple sample renders with updates and basic textures (i still need to enlarge the hull and add alot of stuff). i intend to put it in a scene and attempt to animate it with particles.

It looks good so far, but wouldn't it need a rudder and one of those keel/ centerboard thingys?

nice start - but i really think you need to think about what you're making. as others have pointed out - it's missing some vital parts - i know you're still working on it, but this makes no sense at the moment - the pipe from the fan goes straight into the wooden plank...? and that fan looks like it's just going to tip it over.

you'll save yourself a lot of time and headache if you think through your project before you start making it. I remember a design project in school when i made a phone for the deaf and it was only when i handed it in that the teacher asked me how would they hear it ringing...or use the receiver....
