very good - are you planning to make the rest of the set too?

and could i ask what material and render settings you used?  it has a really nice glowy feel which i've never been able to achieve.

The shadows look excellent!  I take it that you're using a lower value for the main section of the shadow, but you also used some lights with much higher values.  It gives you a very nice realistic effect.  I may have to try it for myself sometime!

I also like the basic, yet distinct horizon, it definitely adds depth.

Thanks, I thought It was too simple :D

:)
I did this piece some months (one or two) ago so I can't say if I used the glow effect of Paint.net =\
but I'm a bit sure that I did

And yes, I'll try to do whole set :)

Here's one direct from ani8or:


if someone get a little hint to the material to the black pieces, I would be grateful, the one I made is too dark


I'm putting the .an8 file here if you want to see the settings ;)

Aw, actualy, there are four lights, infinite, one coming from bottom(to represent the reflect of the ground, making shadow), another from up, the shadow is soft 100, and two in diagonal, in in the same position, one creating a shadow soft 20, and a normal volume shadow(I think it needs to be changed to raytrace to appear now)

For your black piece you might try

amb 2
diffuse 1
spec 0.5
em 0
rough 30
brilliance 1

R 17 G 17 B 17 or a bit less but more than 0

Well made but I don't think ART supports fog yet though scanline still does

WOW, that's wicked sick! :o (excuse my skate talk)

it looks pretty high poly.(im nudging towards 'Wire frame?')

Were the ridges actually extruded, modeled (i mean vertex by vertex), or a texture?

and lastly, how long have you been using anim8or?

Three parentheses,a new record.

No, but I'll use ART without showing the background xD

Perfect! Thank you!
You're most welcome :)

I'm not sure I understood you:

"(im nudging towards 'Wire frame?')"

Actually they are extruded, and the I converted it to subdivided to make it smoth

Almost a year :P
Anim8or is the first 3D modeller I have ever used.
I learning yet, this is the best model I did, coz before I used to worry just with lights and shadows (using downloaded models ).

I did the last piece today, the horse, it's horrible xD
and Rook (or Hook),aw... the "tower"!  is horrible too

The "tower" I can fix, but the horse is a problem, I'm a very bad modeller xDD
