Nice one, its a great tutorial to be following. Produces nice quick satisfying results

One thing I notice is on the back legs theres a ridge running along the top front. If thats there intentionally, ignore me. It does add a little more dimension legs. If its just an artifact of using the split poly tool just be wary of it. I've found my personal preference to be add a line running where i want to go then to smooth out that line before running into the next. Helps to keep my fustration levels down!

Good stuff. One of my favourite parts in this tutorial is attaching the eyes. It really gives u an understanding of creating smooth flowing quad geometry to form complex shapes and joins.

Just for you to know the texturing tutorial that goes with this is great too. Again a nice tutorial to follow along with results u never thought u cud achieve!
