rafael - if you go to a car dealership, and buy a nice new car that looks the same as a million other cars out there, it doesn't make you an expert mechanic. but if you try to build your own car, you'll end up with something quite unique and you'll be a few steps closer to being an expert mechanic....and maybe even in getting a job as a formula1 mechanic
ok, that might be a bad/dodgy example
but the point is, building your own characters from scratch is all about creating something unique and improving your skills. this is something that many people take seriously, especially when you're working, or want to work, as a 3d artist. and games/films that use 3d would be kinda boring if all the characters were made from poser models....true?
basically it's all about practise, improving your skills, and even trying to push a few boundaries.
excellent model btw filo
5 stars from me
