Default My Very First Model!

Hey Guys here is my very first model. I did it along with the maya basic tutorial from this site, which i have to say was fantastic as I had never even used maya before starting this tutorial.

Special thanks to Kurt the tutorial guide.

Anyways here is my dog (I know its not perfect)

you can cut all the black out and reupload.

the hard corners between the legs and body could be east down.

Around the eyes create some eye lids

the legs look a bit like triangle shaped.

The tail also has a hard edge.

You can use the smooth tool to smooth it out.

I bet it will look much better.

keep up the work, your going into the right direction.
