Thought about that and I might just have them float for a cartoon effect.

Tried to model in the brow and it just didnt look right.

Cool, you have done very well but I have to say, the character himself is just kinda weird looking . I think the eyesockets shouldnt go out so much(squish em in) and also the shell is not looking ... natural.

Anyways, I like everything else, especially the boots!

cheers, bobalie

P.S. I also like your sig

THanks for the comments. Yea the shell I am going to redo for the fourth time. Each time I am getting better so maybe the next time will look better. Well since I started this character I have learned alot about edge loops and keeping everything quads. Again thanks for comments and I will work on the shell.:attn:
