If you are thinking about getting the DVD, do it!!! I've learned so much from watching the lessons, and I have so many ideas for different character models for this. For now though I'm going to try and keep with the original concept and then do my own thing afterwards.
Had some time today to try and get the hands and boots modelled a little. The hands were really hard for me to get a grasp on, I still don't like the way they look but I'm gonna leave them for now, so I can get started on detailing the head!!
Here's some pics of the hands and boots in progress.
