Hah! I’m so glad you people are enjoying this. I always laugh when I make mistakes or take a tangent to an ugly direction. Always makes getting back on point seem that much more rewarding than straight linear progress.
MDN67: Thanks so much! I tried simplifying the metal’s specular, and will see what it looks like adding a bit of it back in.
6800AD: Glad you like it, thanks!
Mike: Thanks, man! I didn’t even notice how transparent it was getting on the bottom right explosion. That area will soon be remedied. Have a good one too!
Falcor: Got it. Should be fun refining that area, heh.
SideAche: I’ve been aware of the trail seeming to divide the piece. I still haven’t found a better solution, but as it still gets notice, I’ll keep at it and hopefully find an answer, thanks!
Fahrija: haha, glad you’re breathing again. And no worries about not posting. Looks like you’ve been busy enough with your painting (which is looking great!)
Any other comments would be heaply appreciated. Thanks for your time,
