hey man thats pretty good. except IMHO when you rotate the head you do it at the base of his neck and it goes the opposite direction.. i think thats alittle counter intuitive. :D otherwise good job so far.:applause:

k. here's first pass; gonna take the last 2 days or whatever to tweak and refine where necc.
i know which areas need improvement, but don't let that stop you from crit-ing me, you may see something i missed.

Im sure this is in the rules somewhere, but to post the final version we do that in our own thread right? or is there gonna be a seperate thread to drop em in?

Hey thanks for checking out my wip. Even though yours is still a first pass, some comments from me here:

- Neck seems rubbery when you rotate it around.
- Blink/Brow controls affects mouth/nose areas as well
- "Fleshy" eyes will be nice.
- Mouth controls affect eyes/brow areas

So it's all blendshapes?

Thanks xenoid, yeah i was aware of these issues, but as always time constraints both on and off the field.. . . ill probably be able to knock out some fleshy eyes before contest end.
With the other facial parts moving - that was done on purpose but it was supposed to be a little more subtle(by a little, i of course mean a lot)

So it's all blendshapes?

Not totally but yeah i did about 25 different blendshapes.

heres a snap of it actually animated
