hello Ron! Head was good, though very high polycount!

I would guess you subdivided the spheres from the edit menu, subdivide faces?

Its better to do a subdivision from the build menu then work from that. Do not then convert to mesh from that subdivision, if you need to work on it. Its better to double click the sphere to get its properties and revert the 2 and 3 working/Final divisions back to 0 and 1 and then convert to mesh.

Hope that is of use.

Are you readyforStumps#007?

Hello Kreator,

Thanks for your advice. Actually, I subdivided the eyes and head in the build menu (3 divisions, I think), then converted to mesh. I'm afraid I tend to get carried away with the smoothing. Is it generally better not to convert subdivisions to mesh at all with this sort of thing? That way, if the poly count is too high, you could optimize it before rendering.

I will take legs and feet for Stumps #007 and will try not to overdo subdivision for this one.

Ron

 Thanks kreator, and welcome ronaldefarmer.
 I've finished the head. How are you guys going. If you don't mind, i could put this one together. Will attach it to rig #2 and add some eye-bones.  Might put a small animation together with a few of the previous stump-creatures.
 I (still) don't have a drop box, but, when you're ready, you could email me your bits.  johnar46@hotmail.com

(or is it easier to add them to your dropbox, (kreator), and i can just get them from there?.
 Whatever's easier for you fellas.

 Here he is.   :)

 Attached him to a modified version of rig#2. Did a pretty bad job on the skinning. Everytime while`adding weights my laptops' fan blew so hard i thort it might take off, (or blow up). lol.
 High polycount on the legs Ron. Might pay to work at getting that down a bit.

All in All, not a bad lookin dude tho

Hello Johnar,

Sorry, I will work on that polycount thing. It turned out to be the straps on the flip-flops...73195 faces on just the flip-flops; 1221 on the rest of the model. I'll do better next time. Anyway, thanks for letting me participate, the animation made my four-year-old daughter laugh out loud. Great job, guys.

Ron

 Hi again Ron.

Not at all. Thank YOU for participating. :)

LOL. Yip, that'll be the culprit. Otherwise, the rest is probly not too bad at all. (polycount)

 Cool.
 If anyone wants to get involved in 008, just 'bags', (choose), a part, and have a go.
 I'm going to have a go at putting a short flick together, using some of the previous stump-creatures. Will start rigging some more tonight.

 Most people probly busy doing other things. We've only got this far thanks to 'CaptainDrewi, kreator, yourself, KyleSan and cooldude. (and the pos feedback from those that have commented) :)
 Guess we'll see what happens....
 Anyways, will post again b4 long... Cheers.

 Edit: Regards sizing.  I'll make up some more starting stumps that are more relative to the v2 rig size, and post them in a day or 2. Stll think there will always be some issues when joining tho, but perhaps we wont get quite such large size` differences.
 krerator. Will send you a copy of stumps007 as well.
 cool
