hi all !
i started learning XSI and finally finished is my first model and envelope. modelling so far was quite similar as in c4d. i was suprised how easy i got used to using the xsi-environment. i was a bit scared at first, but everything so far made really sense and felt intuitive. the shader is just for testing purposes, though. i guess now comes the fun part: animation. i am really looking forward to check XSIs animation-features. i already went through some tutorials and i am pretty amazed about the things that seem possible in XSI.
XSI is really a cool programm (as far as i can tell) (too bad they donīt port it to mac :sad: ). ok, i just wanted to say hi :) comments about the kid are appreciated of course....

Yeah, i like the idea and modeling... But you should work on materials, lightning and rendering i think.

to be honest i was just playing around with the toon shader a bit. i didnīt care much about lightning and rendering yet. i will do the final lightning and rendering and shaders when i got a scene (or at least a concept :) ) . i took the toon shader because the result is something one can hardly achieve with c4d. just experimenting....and learning...i donīt know much about mental-ray yet...
