haha, geez...... Umm... fine, Am I allowed to call-off the end time and just finish them whenever I can? I think that would be more likely for me, haha
I need the practice, and thats what this is for.
so yeah, no timeline, I will just finish them ASAP..
cool?

Update later with start of texture

i'm not sure you are doing anything wrong but why is that last picture lacking in shading?

Because N64 style games (what these were inspired by) don't have shading.... So why should I?
The spittlebone didn't either.
I am trying to get better at modeling and texturing, and this seems to be a nice way to do it.
thanks,
-Andy

Your making a good start however with the eye it seems to be backwards?! the shading around the edge seems to be going the wrong way for what i would imagine an eye socket to be.

Its hard to explain with words will do a quick sketch see if i can show you what i mean.

Argh my artistic skills arnt good enough without a tablet... but to better describe there should probably be a highlight on the brow rather than a shaded part. look at some reference eyes (even use some for quick textures)
