Sheesh…that old thing… cheese

Yeah, it looks great open…in fact I’ve got it converted into a prop with an open/close dial.  The pivot points of the four ‘arms’ aren’t exactly ‘right’, so they need a little adjustment to get it to work smoothly.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Lizzie - that render turned out pretty cool!  Who’s feet are those in the background? They don’t look too friendly wink

Thanks! That’s supposed to be Godzilla a.k.a. Kaiju the Giant Monster from the store though I’m thinking the Helligator would be more fitting… guess it depends on if I should go with a classic guy in a rubber suit Godzilla or the modern CGI Godzilla. smile I’ll have to find a subtle way to ask my friend which one he prefers. lol

If you get rid of the 4+ point polys, it will clear those rendering artifacts up smile

By the looks of it though, ours renders better (no gaps on what I’m guessing is the handle… er… the white enamel part.) Jack did a great job at making it Poser ready by fixing the normals and such. smile

I think the ‘guy in a suit’ is a nice nod to the Dr. Who of old.. with the really dodgy costumes and wobbly sets.

Agreed. The old one show is the only version I’ve seen and it’s about the same with old Godzilla movies. I love the classics! I’ve got the new Doctor Who on my Netflix queue but haven’t gotten to it yet. smile

Yeah, the polys/black spots…I didn’t notice them until AFTER the render was done,  but they are gone, now…sometime I should go and redo it (as I’m using it as my desktop wallpaper).

Here’s the other piece I created with the prop. It took a while to get it rendered and then I lost this thread for a bit. Now I’m off to see what my friend thinks of his new artworks. :D

I found out that one of my other friends is also quite the Whovian so it looks like I may be using this prop quite a few more times because she keeps emailing me more ideas. lol

Thanks again!
