Looks like it's coming along good. The legs look like they are at too much of an angle.

I think the legs are better now. Done more muscle definment. As im going it may seem like im exagerating them to much. But thats going to be the whole aim of it. To show muscle structure.

Yes, MJ poly tools are great. I think that they have been incorporated into Maya 7, which is great :attn:

only the edge loop split has been incorporated, and there is also a duplicate edges tool which simply duplicates and edge twice on both sides of the original so in effect you get 3 edges from 1
