Styrofoam Helicopter by jeremyengleman Styrofoam Helicopter by jeremyengleman
2008. Maya, mental ray.

A little RC helicopter using misss_fast simple for the styrofoam and mia_physical sun and sky for the lighting. There is a tutorial on this and you can download the entire scene at Gnomonology. [link]

Oh man, I love the render in this image, it seems so realistic especially with the texturing and lighting. Gotta love the mental ray render option though, comes out better than the standard maya program render selection. Great work!

Lol, my little brother has one of those little helicopters. I use my remote-controlled dragon fly to battle him for supremacy.

Excellent work!

I'll have to agree with Pooyag, while I admire your work and am in awe of most of it, this does not meet up to the standard I have come to expect from you.
The final rendered image seems to be poor in quality and the material on the helicopter looks more like plastic than styrafoam.

Not to be picky though!
