Hey! I have this book! Somewhere 'round here. Fact this was my first BT book, I saw the cover and had to know what it was all about. Great models, as always, Hana. Lighting does not match up too well, sun should be off to the right side of the frame not the center. Guessing you added the light source on the right so it would bring the Mad Cat to the forefront. It just looks, well, odd, mainly because of where the shadows are. Are you rendering the models and the backgrounds at the same time? Donno much about TrueSpace but is there an 'Ambient' lighting option? I think that would fix all the hard shadowing I'm seeing here. Your texture work has waaay improved over the years. But it still looks too clean, if you remember...I hate clean Mechs. Dirty those suckers up!! Thanks for the callback!
Don't mean to be critical of your work, kiddo. Once a project lead always a project lead. *hands Hana a Atlas Plushy* Forgive?
