Earl,FYI - Rendering your vehicles with Blinn's and maximum reflection / raytracing DOES NOT mimic the real world. If you remember your last crit of your first we spoke about your 'Glassy' aestethic and the dangers of the excessive reflections and how cheap it looks. Stylised or not these are not the textures / shaders that should be on these models. You are second year and you are past this stage. Put proper textures/ shaders on and take these good models on to the next level of quality. Do them justice!
You're absolutly right. I'm going to work on some shaders tomorrow.
