Yes I think it is definately "Cute". Body and hands might need some work to make the model even better. Right now they don't match up real well meaning one is very realistic and the other is cartoony.

True, true indeed. Cartoony hands are faster to model.

The body modeling looks excellent although some fur would really look better than a texture, also shouldn't he have claws unless your going for a cartoon style (if these are just temporary stand ins then disregard the above) in that case the body is too realistic. :thumbsup: the tail should be longer with tiny hairs on it.

:hmm: Ok, ok, the hands look funny but to be honest, the purpose for the rat was to solve a plot problem. The protagonist needed a certain moral dilemma to deal with.

My focus was animation and telling a story in a small amount of time. Perhaps this will explain.

I agree, fur would look nice.

I am wanting to start learning to model, etc., and I am wondering, is that rat (and most other figures, etc.) one rectangle that you modified down into a figure, like, you started with a rectangle and then "carve", if you will, it down into a rat

Modeling's awsome, you simply must try it. I'd start with just a box and go from there.

Here's a good example.

Hopefully this helps. Have fun.:cool:
