View Full Version : model: first attempt

02 February 2003, 04:25 PM
ok... I know its not impressive enough to say WOW to... but... this is my first model in LW. it also my second EVER attempt at a head, and the first COMPLETED head that I have done.
oh yeah... and... did I forget to mention it was my first model in LW? lol

what ya think to the LW n00b's model?

wow pretty good! did u follow a tutorial? If so......I wanna get my hands on that!


02 February 2003, 04:32 PM
I semi followed a tutorial... I read through one... and used its reference images and tools that it said to use, but gave up following what it said to do... so that I learned how to do certain things without following something exactly... in other words... I wanted to make sure it wasn't the tutorial that was making a good model... and it was me using the reference from the tutorial, and making my own version :D (hope that makes sense)

it was the one from Inside LightWave 7 (Dan Ablan)

Looks great....but I have to ask...why are you using 7.0 instead of 7.5?

02 February 2003, 04:57 PM
cool work!! i've STILL not done anything organic in LW, all my stuff's been architectural, i really should pull my finger out...

02 February 2003, 07:21 PM
proton: Im keeping at 7 until I get through this book... learn with all the tools in the book using 7 (which the book was published for) and then see what the difference is when I have finished the book. or is that a stupid idea?... damned n00bs!

ta for the praise btw :D

02 February 2003, 07:24 PM
i've got inside LW 7 but still upgraded, the book's still useful, not got through it much, though...

02 February 2003, 07:29 PM
whats the actual difference between em? just so I know before changing.

02 February 2003, 07:32 PM
I honestly can't tell u off the top of my head, think the list is on the site, but it sorted out a few bugs when i upgraded!! :)
wow, u must have a well paid part-time job! No-way could i afford LW at 19!! :D or any CG stuff, for that matter, lol!!

02 February 2003, 07:44 PM
thats what u get for many christmas' of no pressies and generous parents :D... I have to pay em back some of it... I leave school soon for a full time job, so I will be able to afford many other apps soon :D
yay for me \o/

7.5 is a free upgrade and it is much better then 7.0

02 February 2003, 09:43 PM
7.5 has no effect on learning 7.0.

02 February 2003, 01:00 AM
I agree, 7.5 is totally cool! :D

Even for those tiny little changes that most people probably don't even notice, like the "delete" option for images in the Image Editor :)

02 February 2003, 09:36 AM
HA I knew it...the Dan Alblan tutorial :beer:
very cool...much better than my first attempt :thumbsup:
