Cute fox..

Looks like a good start Legolas_hv.. I often set up guide curves like that too.

ok I made most of the model thought i think ill open its mouth because i want to model it inside.
this is a hard low res model smoothed using poly-smooth tool.
Maybe I'll convert to subdiv later.

Good start. But personally, I like the bat better. It's a scary animal, not a cutie one.

nah, that would be cool but too difficult to model, because most of the photographs are too dark and can't find too much for a single kind of bat.
It will be interesting to try to make the fur in the fox (i say try because i still don't know how to make it)

thx for the coments.
I still have to improve the inner of the mouth (it hasn't got tongue) and the ears.

looking good, nice fast progress

the nose seems to look a bit longer than the reference shot posted.

Yeah, looks good. Definately agree with Mr Tickle. The nose looks a little long.

maybe thats because you havent seen the side view of its head.
Any way it seems to be longer in some of them

thx for the comments.

About the fur: of course!!! I'll have to find out how should i do it, but anyway I will!! : P

I think my progress is going to slow down after today because I restart with my classes tomorrow and at least 3 days a week I'm busy for the whole day. And besides I'm having a lot of tests in february : (
