Hello mate, youre new to 3ds max and as such the milestones in terms of basic modelling and rendering come quite thick and fast. This is quite pleasing and youre rightly proud of your achievment - nothing wrong with that. But try and understand that most people on here are quite a bit past that stage and probably struggle to share in your enthusiasm for something so basic. If every noob was to seek approval of his first GI render or his first couple of models the forum would be made almost unusable.

Having said that you are making progress and i dont want to discourage you - so keep going but try and use a little discretion as what to post

*edit: Am i being little harsh peeps?

yea thanks mak but cos i want quick renders i have to tone the final gather on the mental ray down to draft and the image is saved with 80% smoothing, but next time i will decrease it thanks anything else, in about an hour it will be a lot better, more objects and improved, thanks.

the floor is tiling well. The chair looks a bit off and could do with a bump.

Other than that, its a good start.


I think your words were fair. I can consider funkycavemans position on this. The first time you make a 'cool' image you want to post to get approval. I value the forums becase most of us work alone. If you are lucky enough to work in an enviroment of creativity thats a bonus. People can give you encouragements and tips.

For me MF and its like are the only contact I get with other pixel pushers. We need to show our stuff, there will always be people of different scales and abilitys. I agree though that new users should do the work before they post. Try to make something as godd as they can for their level before posting.

I'm guilty of posting WIP to keep myself encouraged. I think we all might be

nothing wrong with seeking the approval of your peers. As long as you can take the knocks.

Mak you're not a c@nt

For the chair, you'll wanna look at uvw mapping, and possibly unwrapping to make it fit nicely.

Haven't the foggiest, I was merely born in the back of an Ambulance that happened to be in Winchester. I do however, currently live just off of a 'Winchester' Road... in Southampton though.

Your image looks messy. Fix it.

Did you finish the car? It might be worth trying to do one project at a time!
