I like it a lot, I wish you could have fixed some little things but overall I really think you achieved the sense of scale of huge alien robot rampaging in town. Explosions, helicopters, smoke and all the city work well together imo.
The breakdown impressed me.
Very cool stuff, well done :)

dude never give up your passion and dreams, no matter what I'd never want to do anything else than be a 3d artist even with a crap pay and if I had to work in the sewers because I freakin love it more than anything else in the world.
That been said you can always re-locate if there's no work where you stay, I think LightWavers will have a hard time anyway because of the dominance of other packages in this industry and that's why its always best to learn as many tools as you can, even if LightWave will remain our "first love".
hell in 2 weeks ill no longer be a student and you bet the quest for a job will gonna be hard :D

i believe that you are a young artist sampei and its good to have dreams.....
I wish you ......your dreams come true and to make that you love so much....
been a 3d artist......
I never give up my dreams,but when you see young men
without jobs near you and you as artist you have a very good job believe me none artist cant be influenced from problems, otherwise he is not an artist.......

I kinda see what you mean Drako...well I'm not that young anymore but I started studying the 3d thing last year. That got me interested in more traditional formats such as drawing and sculpture.
I actually believe that the romance of getting your hands dirty and wounded can never be replaced by a cold pc.
I had studied mechanical engineering and hated it, I'm glad I found something that I can see myself doing for the rest of my days, and because of it I met amazing people which is just priceless.
To be honest I already feel the defeat of not having had any replies from any of the companies I contacted so far, but that just means I'm not good enough and I need to study harder. Improve and be better than everybody else.
Thanks for your kind words, I admire your hard work and I think more people should appreciate it and post here.
I also hope you best of luck with the future :)

How were the trees animated in the car scene. Bones and keyframed?
