I've seen this tutorial on the DT web site... very cool!

Your model looks great! He has character.

Very nice!

Hi,

like to look of this a lot, seen this training kit on their site - I believe there's a cartoon-cop car to go along with him?

Be interesting to see a wire frame and hear a little about how he was made.

cheers

Default Face uv map

Most of the body and decorations where built from basic polygon primitives..The belly and shoe laces and a few other elements where created with nurbs and then converted to polys. IO thought the instructor was very elaborate on the lesson explaining keyboard shortcuts and definitely a good uv texture technique.

I really like this character.

Your modeling looks great, and the UVs look very clean thus far.

Nice work!

it's a good subtle texture so far, but you need to really turn down that specularity... unless you want him to look like he's made out of plastic.

i was going to say... are the eyes curved in or is that refraction? but now i see they are curved in...

there are a lot of polys in that mesh, is that what the instructor was doing?

sorry that i only have two hard crits...
