    This design overtook my other projects, and I wish my results to be somewhere near this:

    I found myself working at an unprecedented speed the last few days: end of the first day, finished the head and main torso:

    End of yesterday, the arms, legs and horn are all done. But I made one big mistake by designing with polylines (that's truly "wireframe") so the rest of the day was spent rigging everything into polysurfaces.

    End of today, ported the model to Metasequoia and used the entire day to torturously fiddle with textures. End result:

    Well~ Looks like nobody is interested in such a modern subject... Never mind, I can go on talking to myself for days. Anyway--

    Final version released!! Still can't believe the testbuilding only lasted for one day :D

    This is nice design work. I am sure this would be a great model for kids that are into these things. Simple to build. Colorful. Nice. Maybe you should create a few more? This is something that can get youngsters into this hobby.

    Thanks fimdan, great idea about getting more interests. I'm sure more models of such subject will attract more people to this remote (well, kinda) hobby. :)

    Nez you have a knack for figure work.
    (I don't mean the maths kind :))
    There are a lot of topics you could cover.
