but it was drawn in to 2d program. If it were done In LW no big deal. but illustrator is a vector based 2d drawing program. I guess it is not as cool as I thought... O well

I think that it looks good. But how would it look if you made the same thing with lightwave?


What do you think of my avitar ?

haha Sorry

But it's good to shatter illusions sometimes. The forums are good for that.

It's like the first time I made a Sky/Seascape in Lightwave, I thought it was totally cool. That was until I showed it to a friend and they we like "oh don't all 3d applications come with a sky/seascape button".

Anyway.

i think your avitar is a kick *** render! It looks really close to a photo. I can't think of anything I would change. It would seem like you Know LW inside and out. Great job!

Riki:
way to rain on my parade... :) even though it is plan I still think it is cool. I like it because it has a professional look to it. I think it would look cool in a mag ad, that thats the look. i was going for, Thanks for your imput, honestly. I like hearing negitive things about what I do, My girlfriend tells me everything is great, even if it looks like dog crap. So thanks for your honesty

Excellent job for being done in Illustrator. It wouldn't take much to import that into Lightwave or create it from scratch. The only reason I even mention doing that is so you could animate your avatar. That is one thing I don't really see much of is animated avatars. I don't think there is anything stoping them from being on this board as long as they originate on another server.

Hi Koots. Thanks for your comments about my avitar. It is nice that so menny people think that I made it with lightwave. But I made it with my hands. I am still learning lightwave and only wish that I was that good with lightwave to make something like that.
Here is a link to how I made my camera case.indestructible camera (http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?t=28047)

I agree with silkrooster about animating your avitar It would be so cool to see it spin or bounce. And with a good avitar like yours. That would not be to hard to do.
