Default Site tutorial

Hey All

Im just coming to the end of a new tute for the site, its a hard surface one, and Ive been asked by David to create a caricature like the ones I helped create for ITvs headcase.

So if you have any prefs as to who I could model then post your ideas here then we can go from there

cheers
Jay

Hehe... This is appealing because then you can do some mean stuff with then without feeling guilty. Just let your imagination flow and show the world what you think about them

Yeah Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan sounds cool. I was also think caricatures of super heroes, really make them extreme. Big bulky Batman or a wirey lookin spidey

No, not serial killers or dictators, it doesnt exactly give an enticing appeal to come to the site and join up for tutes..

Can you hear it....Hey lets go to SM and join up for their dictatorship and serial killer tutorial double whammy. They have 50% off body bag bundles too!!

Something fun and freakin cool to make and bring people in to the site.
