look good.i love your style. for a good cartoon dog material... you can use a blinn material and put reflection to 0 or turn off ray tracing. texture will make your dog look a lot better.keep up the good work.

i think there is too much polygone on your character.its not a big problem, it will only render slower.i am looking foward to see your final project.

for your wallace, i dont know him but he is looking good.maybe his face is too plate(i dont know if i can say plate in english lol)

Your picture of Gromit is very close to the original, but his nose is a bit too extended.
Wallace's mouth is a bit wider too; See picture below.
Other than that, you're doing really good

Cheers,
Leo
