I forgot to save it before i smoothed it so you cant see a low poly pre smoothed version
what do you mean by 'thorns under its hide'

I think what he means is that it appears to be quite lumpy, particularly on the lower jaw.

Oh yeh
i did mean to do that but i just couldnt get the 'lumps' to stand out so i really raised then and added more edges and i probably overdid it in the end
i forgot to save the pre smoothed version so there isnt really anything i can do about it now
ah well
cheers for the crits

Not for your second model mate!

If I was you I would give it another go but just keep it nice and clean, lean to model with the edges and where to place them for a lighter model that still keeps detials and form.
