This isnt a flame or anything, but thats deiffinently the worst model..

Its like that 2d gohan someone made a while back. Its bad cause its 2d. You have to shape the vertices as you go along..

AND PLEASE, DOnt use extrude, it ends up looking really ****ty.

Not entirely true....remember bile's ssj2 gohan? (I don't think it was ever released.....) Well I'd have to say it was one of the most amazing renditions of ssj2 gohan, and he stated that it was entirely made from extrusion.....I think the only reason why extrusion usually blows is because someone is just sloppy with it. Hell, Smo's ssj3 hair is made entirely from extrusion, and it's the best version of ssj3 goku hair, yet! So....food for thought..

Dont connect the coat and the legs. Do both legs in 2D.But for the coat it would be better not to do it in 2D but do it when you got the rest 3D, because doing it in 2D would be senseless cause it is an "open" structure, not like the legs which you can extrude. And it looks like you spent kinda lot on vertexes/faces on the detail. Remember the limitations of the HL engige :\

I wouldn't try modeling like that. Try and shape it as you go along. In max that style could possibly work but not in ms3d. One of the hardest thing for early beginer modelers is keeping track of everything in 3d. So just work with everything in 3d peices. Also from that pic I cant really crit, if your really going to try to model that, it would help if you got a pic showing each vert. Then again I really suggest starting over.

About the extrusion thing it depends on the way you use it. In ms3d extrusion is tricky but in max its different, plus Bile dosn't really extrude faces as much as edges. (but he might have on the gohan he posted here) I don't have the time to make a short tut now but learn how to use extrusion corectly it can be very helpful.

Hey Nate, don't tell me you completely lost that Sephiroth model you were working on before! ;_;

Anywho, I think it's a good (Re)Start. ^^ Looks fairly accurate from what you've got.

I dont think RS will be coming back anytime soon. If you try and go to the forums ( forum.redsaiyan.net ) a message comes up about a suspended account or somthing. I reall want that Sephiroth model and i need alot of the original ESF sounds (dont feel like reinstalling 1.1).
*Ontoppic- I know were you based that pic of :D . But for one thing (like someone said) keep the body 2d and the extra clothing and stuff, 3d. Man, i'd like to get Milkshape. But I cant throw myself down to give someone $20 dollars for a very long account. Then have to pay another 20 when who knows when. (oops got offtopic twice :\ )

I'm sure someone would host it for you. RedSaiyan isn't the be-all and end-all of hosting, y'know...
