Hey, thanks for the pointers.... However, I don't think the lacking quality is because I'm using cinema4d over 3d studio max. Every 3d artist I have ever talked to claims "mama's milk" syndrome. To illustrate what I mean, I recently downloaded Blender to see what I could do with it and the answer was, "Not much," but when I looked at the gallery showcasing Blender... I was knocked off of my feet.
Pro-tips like making materials in photoshop are great though. I've yet to really master 'baking' materials. So yeah, I need modeling tips is what I'm looking for. Not, "Got get this program..."
