However, if you would like to see wire frame of any of the sample I have up, I can do that...  and attach it here...

If you are looking for any specific criteria for your assessment, please let me know...  I'll try my very best to help you assess my knowledge.

Hi serma,

Your stuff looks good.
We'd like to ask you to model and texture the following object to test speed and skills.

http://www.zenn.com.sg/Philips_tube_radio.JPG

It's a fairly simple model, so the execution in specular and normal maps will be important.
We suggest a combination of a high-poly mesh and programs like CrazyBump to create the normal maps.

A small, barely visible layer of white plaster dust needs to be applied to all the faces facing upwards. (mind that for the specular!)

Preferably a 512x512 texture and about 800 tris.

Good luck!

Good info.  I would like to clarify a few things.

1. 512map with as many material slot as I would like?
2. 800 tris = 400 poly (roughly)  I put this up to make sure that we understand each other.  I read
somewhere on this forum that some people didn't truely understand those things.

Let me know If I misunderstood you in any way...

Thank you for this opportunity to be with the team.

For a max user, yes 400 polys (800 tris)

512x512 max texture resolution

Diffuse Map, Specular Color Map, Gloss Map and Normals Map to be put in the appropriate nodes of the material.

If you need further clarification just ask  ;)

If you keep your modeling in quads, your tri count will always be double your quad count. For lighting purposes in most real time applications keeping things in quads generally yields better looking results. The same holds true for animated objects where parts of the mesh are required to deform. There are exceptions but keeping things in quads is a good rule to follow.

I'm done.  Who will I send the max+map files to?

I can't attach a file here?  I'm not very good with code.
