The plane looks great,altough i think the wings should be longer and the "fire" from the projectiles looks strange,other than that it looks great.

Looks good, maybe a tweek on the lighting etc and a bit more texture to the missile trials would really pop it out.

If you motion blur the missiles, and do some work on their trails you should get a really nice piccy.

PS. I find that shots usually look a bit tacky with the lens flare stuff but thats more personal preference than anything.

yes - nice job, though as the others have said, the missile trails really need some work - it just looks too solid and not really like smoke. definitely agree with bending about the lens flare - it just seems a bit obvious and doesn't look very accurate as i imagine the lens flare would be linked to the light from the missiles. i might lose the flare and trails completely.

the plane looks good though - lets see some more views and wireframe.

Here's a link to a written tutorial on making missile tails.

http://www.highend3d.com/maya/tutori...Trail-205.html

And over in the dynamics section of this site there are some video tutorials of similar ideas.

Hope they help.

its a very nice yet but like the others said the wings are a little short, the trail is simple and the lens flare is misplaced but beside that its a nice render gj

i dont think its the wings that are short- the missle trails are obscuring them
