maybe they don't like their favourite things being kirby-ised and are jealous?

or maybe its because the gun penetrates the hand weirdly

(Please note I made most of these purchases manily based on price (some were only a penny + about £2 postage ($3 at the moment(if that) (but used to be more like $4)))

I got Maya 6 killer tips
maya 4.5 savy
exploring 3d animation with maya 6
hyper realistic creature creation
and ideas for the animated short

I also got the matrix 10 disc set (i have only seen the first one) (it was about £14) and red dwarf VI


thanks, its now my wallpaper...

happy birthday! how old are you now?

i love that video, it's brilliant! smash brothers is probably the only reason why i'd get a wii :p

as for your startrek kirby maybe they dont like it because there is no head gear and so he looks bald, unlike the others.

i think the voyager costume is unsuccessful because you're trying an outfit that's too complex, and since kirby doesn't have shoulders or a neck it looks odd to just see half a body in black with a red stripe, a rank, and a communicator. you'd have been more successful with a vader model with a no-front helmet and black cape... your more successful models take advantage of the attributes kirby actually does have... a head for headwear, a waist for belts/pants, and arms/legs. technically it would look ok if kirby's arms were covered, but then the uniform would cover part of his face, which is why it doesn't work. it's almost like voyager PANTS.

Happy birthday.

Maya 6 killer tips is a great book and well worth it in anyones reference materials, anther great book is maya 6 (or 8 now) the complete reference, and if your so inclined to get every bit of use out of maya, Complete Maya programming - An externsive guide to MEL and the C++ API though it can be heavy going if your not programming savy with terms and the maths.
