I am making a model right now, and so far I got the wall to the leg, only problem thing that I need to know is do the models need to solid? or can they be hollow and still do animations? I was thinking they can be hollow because if they were solid the models number of polys would be high as hell.! please tell me If i Know this soon I will be able to make pretty damn good models.
