Default Second Model

This is my second model ever created. Unlike my last(Human Form) which took 4 days, I was able to finish this in 3-4 hours. Really only had to listen to the tutorial 90 percent of time and was able to follow along that way, would've been done quicker, but I completely screwed up the back feet, and my wires got way to sloppy way to fast, so most of the time was actually reworking the mesh. Could use a little work, but Im going to leave it like this and start another, now that I have the basics. Crits welcome ofcourse

Well I'm sure you can see where it looks strange or differs from the image in the tutorial so I don't think I need to say that. I will say this though, keep doing it til you really get it and end up slapping yourself in the head and saying "Duh!" Keep at it.

some people stop doing this at the stage where they have to combine the leg to the body and get stuck, though youved done it and it looks good for a second model

Hehe, I still remember myself doing this one:

It's my favorite tut...
I might redo it now that I know much more about Maya then I did then...

Yours is looking a bit misshaped in some places, mainly the legs. see what you can do about it...
When in doubt, delete history and freeze transformations.
