Though it is still a WIP its great fun with the old maya to zbrush to maya with photoshop along the way cant wait to get it finished, trying to push myself with the modeling, texturing as well as the rendering when it comes to it.

he came second, it says so in his sig

out of the eight projects that actually made it out to computer (3 of which are incomplete, two of which will be rebuilt at some point)
this is probably the best
http://forums.simplymaya.com/showthr...threadid=30345

made in 5 days from scratch and my reward was being mega sick, probably my only original model


i still have projects that shoudl have been completed by now but haven't been started due to unforseen obligations....

I don't have a favorite since all mine ended up being unfinished projects that I wasn't happy with. Hopefully this year will be much better and hopefully I'll actually finish something this year.
