Default mr. ugly guy.

its about time i do a wip. i havent touch maya for a while now and i think its time i do something. i bought the centaur and zombie bundle several months ago but didnt do it both of them. (dont ask why). i did post my finished centaur in the "finished work"section, here but didnt do a wip. which i regret cuz i should have.. well anyway. iam gonna do the zombie one. its looks cool. but i might end up finishing it rather quickly.

good to see some of your stuff, the shape of the body seems to come along well, but the arms looka bit more like the odd tentacle growing out of the shoulder area. They don't really look like they belong to the rest.

whoa man its been a month since the last post of this wip. this is an old thread.
sorry that i chouldnt send any updates. my computer suffered some sort of hardware problem. and i chouldnt work any more on it. this happed a while ago. i should have told you guys. iam currently using my other rather crappy computer to do my stuff. but i dont want to start the tutorial all over again so iam just gonna stop. if i ever would work on it again i dont think i'd be doing a wip. i'd just post it up on the finished work section when iam done.
