I own a drumset and i was wondering how you manage to balance your cymbals like that, do they fall when you play!? nah jk im sure the stands are in progress :roll:
also, the reflection of the symbals is way off, i dont understand why there is a black line running straight through them, what materials are you using for that, it looks like your renderin gwith brazil and i know for a fact the brazil material would allow you to make a good shader for cymbals. AND, the brushed metal tutorial found here (http://www.3dtotal.com/team/Tutorials/brushedmet/asberg_bmetal_01.asp) could also creat some nice cymbals
and i forgot alot of what i wanted to say while i was writing but keep posting it looks promising:D :D

Definatly, you need to make legs for those cymbal stands, for the seat as well and the snare drum. I can see that you have a pedal all the way to the left...at first I though that was for your hi-hat, but the I realized you have your drumset as a double pedal bass setup. nice...I had a drum set like that except I had 2high toms at the top were you only have one, the bigger cymbal all the way to the right should be placed to the right of the floor tom cause im guessing thats a china cymbal. You need to have the connector rods from the high tom to the bass drum so they are connected right now its floating. also the cymbal above the high tom looks like it is floating as well and not connected to anything. Well I hope this helps and you make a kick ass drum kit. If you want I can find A LOT of refernce pics for you.;)

the "big" cymbal is a ride lol. And the tom is connected to the bass drum, ill send another picture if i can my f****** max to work! Ya thanks for the brushed metal tut, hopefully when my max works i can try that out. But maybe...ill use it for the chrome parts of the shells of the drums? (.i.e. the snare) What to do guys think?

k guys my new update, i
-completed the stands (right?? lol )
-made the hi-hat pedal, including the double bass pedal with the kickers
-made very minor adjustment to the throne(seat, looks better in black bad in blue :(
-prob some other things, i just forgot, tell me what you think, if someone could help me out with mats and texs cause i suck and im mentaly retarded lol.

lookin alot better, few crits again
the throne is modelled poorly, which i swhy the black marks are around the corners, can we see a wire for the dumset?
also, what are you using to render this and whats the lighting setup because that may have something to do with it.
good job on modeling the stands, post some more updates.
03-03-2004, 05:42 PM
um....im trying to make a wire render....but......im looking like an idiot right now cause...i dont know how lol
so i gonna just take a screenshot lol
Img at another angle looking better at stands, etc

Okay guys! i finished modelling it (i better of! :grr: )
and now im trying to texturing it. this is the best job i could do...can someone help me! I need to it look even more realistic!

Nice job I like how you finished it off although the seat could use a tad more work. ;) I got your pm but I am afraid to inform you that I too cant texture for the life of me...rotflol.

hey, Vinc3, if you send me a model of one of those cymbals i can send you back it fully textured with a nice material.. . otherwise check out that brushed metal tutorial and get some cymbal pictures and references and do it.

thanks man, i just sent an email to u with the max file. If u want to do more than just texture the cymbol :) id be very happy! lol
email@example.com is my msn and email

The model looks good but the textures need some work
12-03-2004, 01:45 AM
I agree that the textures need work. Also make the pad on the seat shorter. Nice work otherwise though.

hey i'm a drummer, and a lot of things just don't look right.. i don't know if you're modelling this from a pic. but the ride cymbal def. wouldnt be that close to the floor tom, and the middle tom. Think about it, there would be no room to turn, if you were trying to go from the middle tom to the floor tom.. also the cymbals don't look curved enough, they seem to flat, and thick as well.. also the bell on the hi hat is humped to much, and to big. O well I guess thats it, you probably wont have time to work on all these things since it is due soon...
the textures look nice though, make sure u make dimples on all the drum heads where the sticks have hit..and dirty that area up a bit too..
Hope that helps..
