More work with tutorials, this time I had a go with the character-making tutorial. Amssing a total of 17 screenshots of the progression (admittedly I missed some of the first moments) I figured it was better to present the progression of the model creation as a slow-moving slideshow rather than 17 images uploaded to a single post. To save on upload volume I did have to comrpesse it from 1980x1080 to 800x450 but I can always upload a larger version. Once I got into it I did enjoy the time I spend modelling.
One thing I did learn that I should remember: When using the bevel tool, the "offset" parameter does not work fin Maya 2015. But I discovered that adjusting the "fractioning" parameter works just fine and does the same thing. It was especially interesting making the tongue.
