Default Mike Wazowski - Monsters, Inc.

Gonna have a crack at modeling Mike Wizowski from Monsters Inc. He has to be one of my favorite characters from Pixar. Right now I just have the overall shape/outline of him. Still need to add in the detail around his eye, and make his feet, arms, and hands, and refine his legs. Its a start, atleast.

Looking good so far I-Iybrid!

I watched Mosters Inc just two days ago, great film! Comes a close second to the Incredibles for me but that's just a personal choice, I think the reference is ok, I guess it could be the angle that may make it look a bit off, but we'll be able to tell better once a bit more has progressed.

Look forward to it!

Quick update. Spent some time making out his feet. Just have the basic shape, but they still need tweaking. Mainly where the "joints" are just before his toe nails. Dont have alot of time, so this is going to be a slow process.

Im going to be putting this project on hold for awhile. Somewhat lost interest in it. Currently working on a different project, which should be posted up here in the WIP forums shortly.
