[b] WIP Thread[/b]: [WIP Thread Link](http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=208&t=687933&page=1&pp=15) [b]Description[/b]: My original concept was to do a straight forward Scout. I had all my references together and explained to Ben Fleuter what I needed. After starting the model, Aaron "MysticDread" Sturgeon pointed out how dog like the helmet was. Thanks to him, I chose to pursue that aspect and made my character a Bothan Scout. I'd say that I've spent from 80-100 hours on this. I used Maya 2008/2009. I learned a lot and my modeling is getting a bit faster. Thanks to Aaron and Colin for pushing me to do better And everyone who commented on my thread and my family. Thanks for the support and critiques. :D
This has been an awesome experience. Seeing other people’s work has taught me so much and really driven me.
