I made my first image today!
« on: March 31, 2015, 01:47:46 am »

I wanted to do something easy so I made a snowman. I'm still learning the works of the program because I just got it today. :)    Let me know what you think!

Excellent first render! If you subdivide the snowman's spheres, he will look smoother. You might also turn on anti-aliasing to get rid of the jagged edges.

  Then you're doing very well.

 Good advice from ronaldefarmer

 To subdivide, select sphere and go build -> convert to subdivided.
 That way, you can 'unsubdivide' it again later by double clicking on Subdivided sphere, and change divisions options to -working-0 and final-1 Then select and go build -> convert to mesh.  Sweet, back to unsubdivided, workable mesh.

Anti aliasing can be turned on by going View -> preferences, and ticking the appr0priate box(s).

Nice! Try the scanline renderer with antialiasing on.

 Me thinks we might have a natural here.
 Very cool vuolst

 Have you seen the eggplant tutorial yet.
 Its sort've an anim8or standard, which everyone should have a go at.
 It shows some crucial modelling functions in Anim8or, and its always an occasion when you can ''show us your eggplant"
