So I've come across a modder who seems to think he's a really good modeler, so please let us know which model you think is built in a superior fashion:

MODEL A

8pkwe5lk3.png Model is apparently 918 polies. Where those polies are I haven't a clue.

MODEL B

arcadia.jpg Model is 794 polies. Attempted to reach 918 polies by adding unnecessary detail, but failed to reach that high a number.

I tried to give him some constructive criticism to help him fix is his model, but he responded rudely that his hilt was "better in every way" so I'm hoping you guys can help him learn to take some constructive criticism. He changed his image at the source to hide his visible seam, but you can see some of my crits below. Some of them were based on the unreasonable poly count -- I figured if he was going to have 900 polies, a lot of them should have come from the extruded rings -- except there aren't any.

Yeah, the second one. The other one I could see going somewhere, he just needs to fix those things you listed.

Obviously a case of quality over quantity here.

Second one had a lot more quality work go into it than the first one, anyone can see that. What makes it worse is that the author of the first thinks he's better. :rolleyes:

The second one is obviously better, though you went through an awful lot of trouble to prove your point, unless that saber hilt you built just popped out of nowhere, which it probably did. I just hope the modeler who did that work of art will be willing to change.

obviously the second one, the first one looks just as mediocre as my first saber attempt! Which is the hilt u see down my Sig, and my saber only had about 800 something polies. well, he probably hid like 100 polies inside the hilt :P

Would be more objective if they were both taken against the same background and if the first didn't have writing all over it ;)

Still, from the pictures provided, the second one looks far better.
