Hi everybody
I've been working on this character for a while now, and i've started to put some of my work up on my home page.

Come have a look, and feel free to give me any feedback that you think may help.

Thats cool, im just down the road from oakville. I was going to go to sheridan, but decided to go to NSCAD in Halifax for my BFA, then went to International academy of design for 3d animation.

It's done with Conect Poly Shape.
I've tried subDs and Nurbs, but CPS is the easiest to work with, and you have very good control over how your surface looks.
