Classic Pokeball by wanton-fox Classic Pokeball by wanton-fox
:pokeball: First try. Made in Maya 2012.

I saw some 3D pokeballs floating around here on dA, and I thought "looks simple enough" So I took a whack at it. ^^;

I'm not the best at 3D, so please feel free to give a critique or leave a comment ^^ The good old classic loyal pokeball. :dummy:

~Edit:
Thanks for all the feedback guys! I'll definitely use the advice I've gotten for future attempts! ^^

~Edit 2:
I know you guys are trying to help but, STOP SAYING IT'S NOT SMOOTH. I KNOW IT IS NOT SMOOTH. xD Trust me, the first 50 comments were enough thank you ^^;

I've never really written one of these before, so have mercy.
For starters, I'd like to point out that I really do enjoy these. Ever since they've been popping up on the front page, They seem to be the only thing I'm finding my eyes are attracted to. Probably because they aren't so flatly colored and actually seem to be realistic and shiny.
I absolutely love how realistic these turn out, I must say! It is truly wonderful. I'd never be able to accomplish something as this would be. So kudos on that. However, the edges are a bit to pointy, if you know what I mean. But since you're doing this for a first try, I'd say it's pretty well done. The technique you used is wonderful and works for you I think, all except for the edges not being rounded enough. I think what makes it pup most is the effect of the reflections.
First try though, not too shabby! Hope this helped a little bit for you if you try this again in the future (:

I liked the fact that this was your first try, not many people would get something like this on their first try. This was the first thing that attracted me on the Front page.

The style, shading, and texture is great. The only issue I have with it is the area under the little circle, that looks cracked and dented in. It attracted my eye after I wandered around the Poke-ball.

The attention to detail is great though, the shines and everything is amazing, and the fact that you wanted to try this out as a 3D model, you should be proud.

I used your pokeball in one of my photo edits... Sorry I didn't ask permission first. Was only going to post it on facebook but decided to post it here. [link]

I did link your photo but if you want it gone then I will get rid of it.
