Thank you! Try to download it and watch, is just a quicktime file. The animation is about 14 seconds, with the animation for neon light on and off then rain start pouring in. Entire thing is like taking about 2weeks plus, i am working on it on n off, uv unwrapping is the most time taking part, then texturing, lighting again spending quite few days and then i render it, then start comp it After Effect, lastly added in rain particle effect.

As for modeling, i would suggest you try it out on polygon modeling first. Try understanding how extrude, split polygon.... works out, then go through simple tutorial ( basically i would suggest try on geometric object first rather than organic) then slowly working on more complicated thing. Try go download the video tutorial in www.the-area.com for polygon modeling is locomotive and nurbs is headphone, i really found that very useful, cover up all the basic thing a modeller should know. i guess that is all. Hope that will help.

xtrm3d : Thank you!

By the way, is there anyone can help me or tell me why my this animation work is not listed in finished work- animation, instead in 3D still????
