Yes Pony thats my model made with box modelling with maya smoothed and inside was boolean subtracted to get realistic refractions. Textures; fairly simple wee made with Photoshop and mental ray FG renderer was used.
About what do i mean with someone told me to model sth real:
I e-mailed my cv to a post production studio not to get a job but to see an example of a man not getting a job... Then i received an e-mail them telling me to see realist pieces... So even if u can model dinasours or spaceships at a topnotch quality, and living in istanbul then it means you will also have to have a work that is actually in the market...
