    Just finished my portfolio site, I've still got about 100 or so portfolio entries to add. PHP/ mySQL with flash integration in some areas.

    Wow...all these sites make mine look crap!

    I REALLY like this, the frog is very smart! Nice clean site, easy to nav, good flash work....although I would prefer a close animation button, cause after a few loop's it gets on your nerves a tad!

    You are obviously an acomplished company, especially if you have a 100+ portfolio so I am sure you already know how good this site looks!

    I would be intrested how much skill/time/knowlegde/software is needed to produce the frog character, as I could use a cow on my site thats looks more 3D.

    Rgds,
    Ben.

    The frog is smart! :P

    But I don't need Flash MX to view your site, just the Flash 7 Plugin. You can get rid of the required screen res too (as it worked just fine above that resolution).

    I like the welcome intro part (but the site took a fairly long time to load on 512KB connection).

    I would repeat the navigation on the top of the move as well as on the bottom (as it took me a while to find the nav underneath the site ). I like the sound effects although there is a lot of them, good work. 4/5

    It didn't take long to load on 56k, and that's definitely a plus. I like the rollover effect on the portfolio page! Very cool! The sound effects are indeed excellent. Nice touch.

    Thanks for all the great words everyone! Just like any site there is always room for improvement, and over time i'll be fixing some of the little things.

    justlivyalife - your right, I was a little unclear, I should have put Minimum Requirements. And Change the Flash MX to Flash 6 Player.

    Mad Cow Web - I guess it all depends on your enthusiasm and drive. I'll admit 3D can be pretty tricky, and I don't expect you'll be pulling off modeling, rigging, lighting & animating after your first month of doing it. It does take time. I actually started out in 3D about 8 Years ago doing game design - building low polygon models. Much has changed since then, and although the tools are more robust so is the learning curve. Most of the time I use 3D Studio Max, however there were times in a production environment where i was required to use Maya. Max has a easier larning curve, where as Maya is more difficult, but the results can be a tad better.

    I think my best piece advice to give is: Make sure if Mad Cow is the way you want to go with a professioanl name. I think it's definately got i'ts cool side, but unfortunately in light of all the Mad Cow Disease scare through the US, Canada & Great Britain, it flashes somewhat a negative connotation. Just my two cents, as far as 3D, I would suggest going to school, or if you are really self disciplined, get a few books and buy the program!

    What version of max? Also try CGTalk - this is the web's largest resource on 3d, with a huge forum where anybody and everyone can give clues and hints. Tutorials, reviews and lots of other cool stuff.
