I'd truly have loved to do the baking here in 3d coat but Topogun handles Much Higher res meshes whilst remaining 'usable'.

Thanks guys, @ Chingchong (Funny name BTW) apart from my current workload, my current battle is more personal, My health problems. I have something called Cushings (which was mis diagnosed as Hypo thyroid, and we only caught it cos I saw a random image on google if some strange Stria (which looked like stretch marks diagonal across abdomen) and remembered the same pattern on myself a few years ago). Without going into detaills the disease affects Hormone/steroid production from the perpetuity glad and messes my body up alot, which usually presents with minor/moderate depression and 'st Vitus dance' (some of you may remember I mentioned Restless leg syndrome) so finding the motivation apart from the time, is difficult. I will produce something however. So please check back.

yeah, name is derived from KingKong :D, but you can call me Peter :)

I'm sad to hear about your disease, but happy for you that you got now the right diagnose.

Since i'm a biologist at profession (but artist at heart ;)), i understand that you are not having a good time.

So bad, it seems that alot geniuses have physical handicaps, dont know why.

But take your time, and sorry for putting pressure on the tutorial issue. Since i know the background now, i will wait patiently and admire your work in the meantime :)

btw i think you mean the pituitary gland.

Nice soldier. The folds on the clothes, the expression, the pose, the watch...

Just wondering why you twisted it's wrists like that. Is it to fit with a particular

skelton system?

Very inspiring work as always.

Standard T pose 30-45 degree forearm twist. Here is a quick try at hair using ZBrush Exported UVed fibre mesh.

Oh, I see. This is rather classical T-pose then.

Thanks I learned something. Is it the best to avoid

deformation when moving arms and hands?

The boots are so cool and detailed.

Can't wait to see the final result!
