This was done completely in nurbs (which aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be once you get to know them). My first ever nurbs experience though. I'm quite satisfied with the results, but it could use a few minor fixes (the straps and strap mounts).
Edit: I also didn't have a clue about tesselation when I rendered this, so there are some rough areas. This gas mask can be found in my WWII Tortue scene here: http://forum.simplymaya.com/showthre...threadid=20626
"We don't actually need to know that the main character has a past. All we need to know is that he has an objective and a lot of people are going to die and a lot of innocent inanimate objects are going to be destroyed and blown up before he can complete that objective."
