Wow! Great job. The texture on the fuselage looks really good.

The only things I might work on are the canopy and engine glow. Maybe more specularity on the canopy and a little noise or more transparency to the blue glow?

Just huntin' and peckin'. Looks great!

What kind of source material?

Yes, very nice model! Great render. The only critique I have regards the HUD - that's a pretty damn bright glow for outside. Those things reflect at the pilot, not away. Tone it down a bit so it doesn't pull my eye in, and it'll be super.

cool images- i like the first one best-
they have a non-realistic, stilised look to them, but i dont mean it
as a critique- i quite like it:)

The first image is [email protected]

The second image looks distorted, and the surfacing is a bit odd.

The third image looks nice, but the surfacing is way outta whack. Perhaps too much specularity on the fuselage.

Hmmm not sure about the latter 2 images, there's just something funky going on with the surfacing. I'll have to study them a bit to make a decent critique. The first image is terrific though.

I'd also lose the exhaust flame...it throws the reality of the image off. Especially in the first image. Kill the flame, and utilize some heat distortion type effects instead.

Now that Harlan mentions it, the surface settings are a bit off. It looks like the fuselage has the same specularity as the exhaust cone. If I remember correctly, US Air Force jets use a very non-specular matte paint. You've got the color perfectly, but it's too glossy looking. They almost look soft in real life. Great job, though!

Yep yep, dull/matte paint, certainly reduces the odds of sparkling in flight. Sparkling = Easy to see target!!!

You are right about the specularity. Didn't notice 'till it was mentioned.

Yep nice F-16 allright :)
Those images ...like it is straight from a movie or something (If it isnt i whould say LETS DO IT dying to c some kewl dogfight action around here think Macross or Topgun when ya do it)

So i gues i am gonna make some of my own Jets coss DM67 you have me convinced again :D so KUTGW!
