Anubus is the lesser known egyptian god of heavy napping.

Yes, my spelling is atrocious... but not as bad as my modeling. Sheild your eyes!

Anyway, I've yet to add fingers, toes, or facial features... And I'm not really happy with any of it. I may start over. Man... I really should have started sooner. Anyway, this is my second character model, so any suggestions as far as where to start and how many sides the limbs should be composed of? (Hexagons? Octagons? I guess it depends on what kind of final poly count you're going for.)

Ah well. I finished my other thing so I'll probably put some good time into this over the next few days (especially since the end is approaching)

I usually go for Pentagons, or hexagons. Five sides is just barely enough to make it look round. Start with that, and split the polys to add definition from there. It's always better to be in a position to add, rather than have to take away.

Don't get discouraged. We've all been there. Are you using a reference image(s)? Try putting your reference on a plane behind the model, and cutting the mesh where you find folds and creases. Everyone has a different opinion, or a way they like to work, but I've always found it's easier for me to model low, then add polies in to raise the count, instead of starting high and optimizing way down. But, you just have to keep working at it, until you find your groove.
