In response to Almighty Gir's thread, I figured I would post this thing i wrote like 2 mnths ago for my Freshman Compisition class...it might help, it probably won't, and still no one will know who i am :laff: soooooooo without further ado, here is my lightwave 3d low poly HEAD modeling tutorial.

Lightwave Tut

On a side note this model was going to be fore ESF but I only got about 65% done with it before I quit the team :).

ill do something with it after i think of a way to organize the current sticky situation here,

the BIG tut sticky is messy and contains alot of dead links, else i wouldve addd girs and your tut to it, yet we cant very well have a sticky for each individual tut, we already have an ample supply of stickys >_>, and id hate to stack more on top of it right now,


we need to reorganize things a bit, ill see what i can do with the place

if anyone wants to skin i don't see the harm

incase anyone cares, this is where I stopped on the model and for those of you who don't know, which sad to say is about 85% of the forums, This is NOT GG's work and I am NOT GG.



Oh and seriously, don't worry about me being on the team anyway, most people didn't even know I was on the team, let alone that I did any work for it. :S

maybe I will continue making a few tutorials since i seems at least a few people are finding them useful, suggestions on what you want to know? I can do just about everything but get a good render out of lightwave (thats not to say it doesn't make good renders, because it can and does, i just never spent time getting into all that and making it look nice :p).

thats a hefty order....and would take a while to get indepth with =\......I was thinking more along the lines of:

Intermediates modeling guide (maybe a full bofy of a simpler character so it's not toooooo long or toooooo much work)

Poly reduction, the do's and do not's

UV Mapping for Beginners

any of those (besides the intermediate tut) sound good? Also any idea's, non dbz preferably, for the full body tut?
