    Eew, py. Why so many segs for the Body?

    Also, I think those flat surfaces at the front of his front legs may look funky.

    Looks cool, though.

    EDIT: Okay, just need to unwrap the back legs now. I'll probably enlarge the body a bit.

    What do you mean finally, it should take no no longer than 30min.

    ...which reminds me, I should upload the unrwapping of the chimera video.

    It barely takes any time for me as well. Unwrapping in 3ds Max (I do pelt mapping) is quite easy

    What the hell is so confusing about pelt mapping? You just have to hit a damn button! Don't try to adjust any of those mumbo jumbo settings, they're so useless that in max 2009 or 2008 they removed them completely so it's just 1 button, like it should be.

    Yeah, unwrapping takes me longer than the whole mesh... I suck at it though :p Oh, and TDR, I think you should post in tutorials section once the whole series is done, it'd be kickass, and worth a sticky.

    Yea, you don't see enough "from the ground up" scratch model tutorials. Found one on Oinkerwinkles site, but other than that...

    Well if you're using max 5, maybe. But with max 9 and newer unwrapping is easier than farting.

    TDR, whenever I relax or do pelt mapping, it completely screws shit, and no, I didn't touch any mumbo jumbo options :/ Any way to fix it or something?
