Default Great!

Lovely character Kurt!

Have just finished your Basic Human and Cartoon Dog, really enjoy your modeling style.

Do you produce a skeleton for all your models? I would love to do a skeleton and bind fom my Franky and dog...You don't have any skeleton tuts on here do you? Maybe do a short walk cycle for both, throw ball and fetch!

Cheers!

i would think you could just take a cylinder and cut it in half

but i'm also guessing he just used a NURBS plane

I saw in 3Dsmax there are deformers where you can easily shape your polygonal plane in this shape without pulling vertex.... ? I always pull vertex and that consume a lot of my time and it's not very accurate...

it's a new option for your standard transformation tools

either toggle it in the tool's attributes, or hit 'b', hold b and middle mouse drag to change the radius of influence
