I just modelled and textured this pair of safety glasses for our FIRST Robotics ( animation. Is there anything I can change to make them more realistic or just better in general?

Could you show more views? it's hard to tell what I'm looking at.

I don't mean to be cruel, but those look nothing like saftey glasses. I think you should start from scratch and redo them.

Would "Saftey Glasses" have a pointy almost 'dagger' like end on the frames?

yea i agree with Clock. You should get a new referance picture or something.

thanks for being honest. I'll see what I can do. I think the most inaccuracies are the pointy arms and the lack of a nose protector. Would anything else make a huge difference?

I bent down the end of the arms, added a nose piece, and added the slits in the sides so they don't fog up. Does it still look like a murder weapon?

Okay. I think I'm mostly done. Check it out:

get rid of those sharp corners everywhere. i've never seen 'safety glasses' with corners that could put out an eye.

Sorry, you hit the website before it finished uploading and you saw some of the old images. Now there are six images and only the last one is sharp.

Much better than your first rendition. Now try applying meshsmooth, and if that thins it out too much, try applying a push modifier before the meshsmooth. (You might want to try smoothing groups to keep some areas of your model angular).
