Great big piles of awsome-ness, cheers arran!

I loved that and it went straight in my youtube favourite box. It's pretty apt really as I've been working on this for the past couple of days for my facial animation module.....

I've been trying to model just the snail's shell for ages. I can never get it right :/

I notice the animator there has tried hiding one side of the shell. you can see it keeps switching from dextral to sinistral coiling :p

yeap, basically a snail's shell either coils right hand or left hand, so if you see the shell from one side, it looks different to the other.

Just a minor nitpick from me, I like insects, arachnids and invertebrates and I study them alot :p
