That all worked, but now I am on the body, I cut it in half too. The boolean union is not working whatsoever now though. I went back and tried to put the other side of the head on but didn't succeed. Any suggestions? Can it not work when it is cut in half? I think I'll just take it slower and figure it out. Last edited by noanswer42 : 27-11-2004 at 02:43 PM.

If that dont help post the file up and I'll have a look. Kurt __________________ I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination, knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world.

I think I will have another go at it tonight and not cut the head in half this time. Good tutorial Kurt, hopefully I'll finish some time; I want to try the tree frog as well soon. Update: Okay I finished getting the head right and connecting it to the body. Last edited by noanswer42 : 28-11-2004 at 01:03 PM.
