First try to model a charakter in maya in General .
I tryed that Ut2003 with the VTM's from www.3dbuzz.com

Just perfect for a good start in 3d i would say .

Made the model with Maya 5.0.

Soften your normals up and let us see a prespective screen grab. The rendering makes it hard to say much of anything.

edit polygons> normals>sofen/harden>option box

now move the slider up past the 100's. This will force the normals to "bend" and create a smoothed look on the model.

something about the face looks a little odd. I think it may be the eyes. They look un human. Other than that is a cool concept.

if done what u wrote there to get a smoothed look but that screws up the model at least for my eye they are
the reson the face look odd i because i wont model the eye i probably texture them cuz ' i want to import that model into 2003 !

Looking good!

but I will add a constructive crit, ok...

here goes...

You should add more mesh to the joints, like in the finger divisions, in every place that bend or is animated...

doh. While at work I was thinking about what I told you and realized I forgot one thing. Just select all the faces that represend her skin and soften those. You might want to soften the armor by say 40-60. But the flesh should be more of 110-120. Other wise it will look jaggy in game.

i won't animate the finger cuz they will only hold the weapon when i import the model into ut2003 .
but rest should work out just fine

can you post a render, with a different background color? also can you add a soft quality to the image (mesh) if you add a smooth modifier.
