    If you were looking for more PA characters to do, I would be honored to see me in 3d form. I whipped up this diagram to help quicken the process. Hope it helps :D

    EDIT: Now that I look at it, the front view should probably have a much thinner waist. And I realized that's just not my face! If you do decide to make me, please use this face for reference instead of the one above:

    Haha, yay, I'm in it now. Why is Creambun's hand on my head? It works with the expression though. Er, or could be construed the wrong way.

    its all 3dsmax9. This excersize is fun because its like speed building the models. Im using the same Bones system and the skin modifier to drive everyones animation so its not actually like recreating each whole character from scratch.

    Here are some pointers for 3d workflow.
    You can see in this first view your images photoshoped together, putting the head onto the body, also you can see the blue lines going from side to front, you did a good job of lining most of the character up. i only had to fix the lower jaw, nose, and eyes in the front view(Pulling them down), so they would match in the left.

    The setup of the actual character is fine for modeling, but as you can see once he was modeled i then had to do some funny editing on the arms to get them to be horizontal. This is how my particular bones setup is done, so i kinda have to fit/ adjust the model to the skeleton. Now this isnt always the case, other people model thier skelital rig with the arms at a 45degree angle. another way is to model first and build the entire skeletal rig to fit the chracater, but thats about 3-5 times the setup time.

    the only other issue was the legs/feet, similar to the arms, but i just had to move them forward a bit.

    So basicly the guys body is an object with a skin modifier, the skin literaly follows the bones as you animate the bones, so everything has to line up. and that all starts with a good reference drawing to start it off.

    So much FUN!!^^

    This isn’t exactly the right place (probably doodle would be best?), but it’s sorta close. Several months ago there was a “draw another former” thread, and I found these doodles from that. Probably won’t be able to recognize them, as my suck is strong; but figured I’d mention that just in case so no one finds them too creepy.

    honestly, I have no idea. I didn't write down names or handles for them. It was in my work doodle book (the one I hide in my desk for when I get burnt out, and no one's looking).

    er... the glasses, yes. yes I do. Ok, not really; I think just about everyone wore them actually. I did as well, till I got lasik.

    I meant to check this thread when it was made but never did. Raneados, what is your opinion of the notion that your character is easy to draw?

    for being so easy to draw he is not drawn nearly enough
