Smile A Little Pony



This is still a work in progress. But I would greatly appreciate some feedback.

I'll explain the purpose of this model a bit later.

Very cute. Is it a reason you have triangulated the surfaces or is it just to control how the smoothing will work on exported model?

For the ease of modification and smoothing.

Also, I like how it looks

edit: also, I always thought it was a kind of necessity... especially since exported models always end up triangulated anyway. :P

I see. I never triangulate my models, because you get more polys that the computer have to handle, and quads are easyer to modify than tris in my opinion, but then again I usually have huge models Also exporting to obj. files usually dont triangulate the model. Its a bit dependent on what program you import it to as well. Some triangulate when importing, and some dont. Anyway, I cant see much wrong with your pony actually. Nice modeling

Very nice!

Nothing wrong with triangulating, it all ends up triangles when it gets to the graphics card anyway.

Indeed and especially in the coding software that I use.

Thanks for the feedback

Very nice work. What are your plans to do with it? I would like to see it in a wooded area with a Spring Fairy or two. Just a thought.
