Hi Dae Sounds like a nice idea, was contemplating that before doing my lizard. I'm probably not good enough to create a decent human form.

Still waiting on this sketch! Hope it turns out well for you

Take a look at the mermaids done by Chris Achilleos. Here is one of them: http://meltingpot.fortunecity.com/co...fabmermaid.jpg

Good you're keeping her svelt. Anyone that swims a lot should look athletic. After seeing you other work, I have no doubt that this one will look outstanding.

Dude! looking good! Altho I agree about some very minor points needing tweeking. She is going to be pretty.
I REAAAAALLLLYY LIKE the animated gif! What a cool idea! You can sort of see it happening.
Are you working nurbs - polys - sub div order?
I am watching with interest brother!

Thumbs up update

thanks Surfer,
I am doing the poly's to sub D's then back to poly's and so forth, for the head,
started with nurbs for the body, anyway with quite abit of pushing and pulling, I am happy with the way she looks, I will carry on with the body then go back to the head and look at it with fresh eyes,
I reduced the ears bent them and rotated them this way and that way

Hmmm She looks cleaner now and the ears are great! They don't look as angular as before. I LIKE IT! texturing is going to be a mission tho huh?

HEY!!!! I like your new site too! It looks very slick actually and I hope you don't mind if I link to it from mine!
Keep up the good work brotha!

Looking good Dae.

I wonder where you got the idea to use an animated gif to show the wireframe as well as the shaded version. Ha Ha!
