Ya, I'm a huge fan and this is all I have of the collection in picture form. I always tend to use a black background... I can't really do eyes or anything or the bodies because I'm not sure how to go about doing that. I've seen some really good models and it almost makes me feel inferior to the point I should just browse and stare in aw of the awesomeness... @_@ Here's my attempts at Sonic... of some kind... I'm still learning, so advice is gewd! =D

Okay, so I was advised QUITE some time ago about this program and I've been workin with it forever, but only now joined the forum because we got better internet so it would actually load. When I got the manual on how to use it, I got confused cause it didn't really explain everything I needed, and when I started diggin in deeper, I started to figure SOME stuff out, but not ALL of it that I needed. I can't figure out how to animate things. I can make an entire body, but I can never get the model to move... Just the ENTIRE figure strapped onto one bone. Plus, I have trouble making bodies because... well... yaaaa let's just say that I can't figure it out >_<

Lemme explain... I'm a SUPER HUGE Sonic the Hedgehog fan, and I have successfully made several heads... but no bodies to go with them that look like they should. I can handle shaping them and everything, but I don't know how to bend the arms or anything with one piece or nothin', that is, if that's possible. Also just to throw this in I'm not to positive with the eyes when I make em. I dunno how to make those look like the actual Sonic eyes where they don't stick off the face lol. I've been trying and I even discovered a way to fix the quills so they stick off the head correctly, and I can make the ears now attached to the head. The nose I add separate anyways, so that's no big deal :P.

Can anyone help me out here? I have several OLD models over at my page, if you can find them buried in my gallery, and I just put up a new one called Metal Sonic. I figured out the shiny factor lol! But yes, anyway, can someone help me?
