I like it. Nice job! I'm not sure if the skin matches the kind of shader details you have in the hat, though. But, modeling is quite nice.

H.

Thanx. The model started out as nurbs curves then patched together which too about a week to tweek then was converted to poly, its actually quite a dense mesh, It comes in around 40,000 polys. Its made this dense as we've found that Maya loves
bags of polys when it comes to Artisan, so there's more control.
At the moment it has 25 blend shapes for the face, 12 for the eyebrows, 3 for the tongue.

Sorry I dont have any WIP at hand at the moment cos they are stashed away. Will post when at hand.

It's not the # of polys, but the quality of work. I had a student make a car with 1 million polys before...

Can't honestly say that it was a "good" model... but it had a bunch of polys. lol

Sorry I didn't mean to sound like I was boasting about poly amount, I just gave the details of the model as requested.

And yes it is the quality of the work that counts and I hope you think my work is. Thanx

Nah, Jango, your model is great. My comment was more geared toward DrKnow.
