Of all the things you could have chosen to make a thread about, you chose Corrugated Metal.

Alright.

I have to confess. I just spent 20 minutes googling rusted tin fence, and I can not in good conscience remain silent that I'm coming around to see how the fence could be metal! There is a slight discolouration going on, which might be indicative of rust (although from afar, the colour is still very regular and wooden-looking). IF it is metal, I think a plausible explanation for the downward grooves might be that those are actually the small waves you get on a normal tin fence, and then the fence is bent on itself as well. Like this:

Now, good night ladies and gentlemen. I believe I'll never look at this thread again. Because I'll be busy shooting myself in the head.

we have had problems with cartoony and different styled community sourced 3d models before, so kind of no.

There are also vertical, dark lines on the surface, which could be gaps between different pieces of wood, or just the natural grain the wood has. In either case, that's not a charasteristic that would appear on a tin fence. It doesn't look like rust or dirt to me at all; there are some rusted metal things in the bottom-left corner of the same screenshot, and those look totally different.

Nevermind, the fact it's wavy like that is bothersome anyway. I tried googling for similar applications of wood, but I couldn't find anything really alike. Very mysterial...
see i'm not totally crazy. it is a bit "off"

if it drives you that crazy you may never want any thing to do with the developing of videos games either. especially quality control and art/graphics department. :lol:

Cartoony is way too subjective as a description.

I don't see Wiley Coyote when looking at that disproportionately sized corrugated sheet.

read that post i explain in detail why i used that word and put meaning behind it that every one can understand with pictures and words and the works. but, seriously though i do explain some stuff about portions and how things should look and why.

Which post? The one you linked to? It doesn't explain cartoony at all? Unless you mean the entire 5 page thread, which I am not going to read through at the moment.... :mrgreen:

Using a word that is wide, open and subjective to put meaning behind something doesn't actually do what you want it to do.

In the "corrugated sheet" example, what makes it "cartoony". Is it just the disproportionate size? Or is there more to it.
(I agree with you by the way, just not the use of the term "cartoony")
