Thanks for the tips Kerosene and GPMaya84! I will "fat her up" a bit then, hoping she will look more natural. Am modeling a head too, and I can assure you she isn't pretty at this very moment :p But I hope she will be after some tweaking.

Really? Hmmm....I never knew it was a female thing to point out things like that...I guess it benefits to being a girl then. :p Lol, no I am just kidding guys! Maybe it is since girls technically know their own bodies more and are able to point out the correct proportions due to personal experience...and maybe it is easier for men to model males than it is for them to model females since they tend to know the male body proportions more based on their own. So...for female modelers, the reverse could also be true! It may be easier for women to model females but harder to model males. However, I could be wrong, but it is just a thought.

Anyway, DJbLAZER, I am looking forward to seeing your progress on the model! I had problems with the face on my model at first, but it just took a lot of tweeking. Good luck, and I hope to see updates soon!

That could of course be true, CGPMaya84... But maybe women are just jealous of the models that guys create

Well I ain't jealous of any of the male modelers that were in my class. I actually exceeded most of the men in my class in skill in 3D Modeling-and actually a lot of the men in my class were jealous of me. :p

I think the reference was to jealousy over the actual models. Those fine curves, toned backside, tender... God its going to be great when my lady comes over to Vancouver to visit me and I can get a life outside of Maya

Hey DJ

I've been pondering your stuff and was trying to think of a great example of body modelling, and voila its sitting in my bookmarks for ages and has now been added to my links on my site. This is a great model, stylized to a point of what I'd call satisfaction!!
Its real cool and I hope it helps you on your way and anyone else whos modelling humans, its an inspiration for me certainly. Anyway less of my rambling, check the link: http://www.ethereality.info/ethereal...ype_female.htm

Best wishes from Eula Space!!

Jango, thanks buddy, thats great!

Been looking for good reference images, but have only found pictures of models, no good pics in profile, feets hands etc. Still need some good head references though, know of any? Thanks again!

Looked at fineart, and I'm sure there are som good images there to use, but since there is no search function that could take days... (time I could spend on modeling :p )

Yes, I'll see what my girl says about that

Here's the head, that nose still look like crap, otherwise I think you could at least tell its a female human..hehe. Threw in the eyes and teeth so it's easier to see if I'm on the right track.
