Hehe thewooleymammoth,

Nice job. Like the way his head and hair turned out. The head on my frankenstein is worse than horrible. I've seen plenty worse hands than those, it's all just practise.

The only thing I would point out, is that by the looks of it, you needed to turn on "Keep Faces Together" when doing the shoes. That's what I overlooked when doing it. The soles of my shoes ended up just the same. It's found in Polygons->ToolOptions, the second option. Just make sure it's checked.

Try the effect of having this on and off by extruding faces of a sphere or cylinder. You'll see what I mean.

For what it's worth, I screwed the hands up as well as the feet by missing this tool option. Bloody killed my trying to work out why the soles of my feet had tread around the edges, similar effect on the fingers...

But again, Nice Job! Look forward to seeing more..

Simon.

Looks to me like the Basic Human Form tute,
second from the top Here

Everyone that does this seems to have legs that turn out the same, its funny. Everything else seems to change subtly, but the legs I could pick from a mile off.
S.

From memory Kurt refers to him as Franky, hence the name..

frame rate is usually constant (people use 24, 15, and 30 the most commonly). are you talking about speed of motion?

practice is the best way to combat that. also, if you have the means, film yourself performing the action. you'll see how long it takes you to do it, and also you can slow it down or run it frame-by-frame to see how you actually move, and you can emulate that in your animation.
