Yeah, but unless you work for a studio or don't mind commiting grand theft, you can't
afford those packages. (Maya, Softimage) Truspace 4 is at least as good as max and LW,
Mabey better out of the box. The support for doing game stuff is better for max though.

Nah, it's pretty much a hobby. I'm actually working on a technique for creating Black and
white comic line art using Cel shaded 3d objects. I've had some success with it,
unfortunately I have very little time to do that kinda stuff since I'm a stay at home
dad, with a 1 year old. (plus modelling characters is so tedious.)

I'm not the guy who posted the pictures, I was just chimeing in that I recognised were he
got the mesh from. ^_^ I hate modelling other peoples designs it just gets boring, It's
much more fun to create your own stuff... mabey someday I'll finish that scopedog.
