Yeh, 4 months is plenty of time, even for beginners! That means there's no excuse for not finishing!

It's always been about the quality of the work rather than finishing in a shorter deadline, so I'm hoping to see some really cool stuff.

Good to see u kicking in some concepts love the look of your designs keep it up. I like the first set alot but then again the all look awesome.

It looks like your planning on making 2 characters as a team if not correct?

hey CAD thats some top notch sculpting you have there. Im a mud box person myself, havent had time to learn Zbrush, and mudbox was closer to the traditional 3d programs that I know.

Anyway thats enough of a tangent. Love your stuff, can't wait to see this guy textured up. Looking forward to the money shot.

Thanx Kookie

yea i started in mudbox when i first started sculpting a while ago. tried Zbrush (failed the first time :) then came back to it and worked out the crappy shortcuts and stuff and sorta just got used to it, im planning on trying out the new mudbox 'pparently its supposed to be good so ill have to give it a look gotta try and make sure i can use both.

Update 9

ok so unwrapped and texturing and its taking me a while i originnally did one pass but my heart wasnt in it so it looked like shit, so i left it for a weekend played force unleashed and came back with a fresh head and this is where im at. still got a lot to do i know there are seams in areas but i will get to painting them out a little later. ive also got to model his weapon and texture it but i will get to that (and the calling card) after ive got the bulk of him done.

as usual C&C is always helpful
