man that's soooooo awesome. I agree with Arran, the blue bits are a little bit too blue, but leave them with a little bit of colour... otherwise it may look to drab.

I hope that you can get ur head around animation, cos this thing is rockin!

you might wanna have a lower res version of the model to animate with, cos as soon as high res stuff starts moving it'll kill ur graphics card.

This is looking sweet. I really like the touches of red that you have added and the lighter blue colour is looking a lot better. Well done mate!

Cheers arran u think even lighter with the blue?
Or is it ok as is?
Heres another angle using the stand too! ill be adding some lights for the final scene which actually come from the middel part of the tire which should look cool! (this bike also apparently is capable of 400 mph!!!!! )
Now onto the serious business

Hmmm.. not sure - It looks fine but I might go a little lighter and maybe add a touch of green to the colour. What is that colour peeking out from the middle of your wheel? I might go with that colour. To be honest I have never liked blue (Is that a stupid thing to say??), so I would wait for some less colour biased opinions!:blush:

WOW MAN! that last shot was great. the only prob i have is that the shadow behind the bike is a bit dark. Try chucking in a subtle filler light.

i'm just being picky. i know that u've still got a while to go b4 u start worrying about final lighting.
