Hi there!
It is done... my first 3d Character :bounce:
I used 3ds max 4.2 and the "box modeling" technique.
I know it isn't perfect but i am very proud of myself:D
So have a look at my work :p

Nice job. My one critic would be his stomach. His belly doesn't look round enough around the waist. It looks a little to much like a square rounded off (if that makes sense?). Other than that, he looks very cartoony. :thumbsup:

I agree with the post above, where it looks a little 'square' - look at the nose, for example.
This is a common side effect of using the box-modeling technique (my favorite technique, by the way - i start every model with a cube). It's easily fixed just by pushing and pulling a few verts here and there. The cheeks are pretty round and smooth - I'd recommend tweaking the problem areas of the model a bit to get rid of the boxing artifacts, and keep an eye open for this problem as you progress through your future models.
Congrats on your first model - Good job!
