very good :)

my only crit would be, it looks like you had antialiasing (edge smoothing) turned off.  turning it on will make your renders take a bit longer, but it'll make the image look better.  nice modelling and texturing, though!

it seems that you haven't actually rendered it - just taken a screen shot.


i won't go into all the details, but i recommend you go into scene mode (mode>scene) to render.

happy anim8ing  ;D

Thank you both!
You are right...I just took a screen shot.
I never use the render thigny...
And, I try to never use smoothing on edges, as all I am making goes into my sims2 game, and it has to be small in size :)
(if it has anything to do with what you both said ::) )

But I'll try what you've suggested me, and see what it gives...for the look of it!

I don't use the texture in Anim8or anymore, I don't really know how it works...I do all my uv mapping in Milkshape 3D.

Thanks again,

Okay!
I think I did this right, not sure though,
Something like this ?

I try first to go to scene mode, but there, my object never showed up, so I went back to object mode, then render.

Thank you,

It seems you have a bit more to learn in Anim8or, although if it's only for the Sims game then don't worry too much.
In scene mode you have to add the objects by Build->Add Object ('Build' is at the top toolbar).
When rendering don't take a screenshot, instead press 'Save' (on the left toolbar).

Fine!
Thank you Tanzim.
What a shame, I had read about render...a rigging tutorial.
I had completely forgotten the build-add object.
yes, I have a lot to learn :)

Thanks,
