    I don’t know if you guys have considered this, but you might think about having a yearly Citizen membership at a discounted rate. Say around 100 or 110 bucks.

    Just an idea.

    Thanks for all your awesome hard work!

    I must say i am somewhat confused.

    First i am new to blender, but it seems to me I am missing some important information.

    All of a sudden the arms are disconnected half way up the arms.

    when I try to add the circle for the eyes it is attached to the head, but also facing the wrong direction and there is only one.

    Also a lot of the hot keys shown have now changed I know this tutorial is old but why not update it?

    not at all happy :(

      Hi Colin,

      I’m sorry to hear you’re having troubles. If you can provide some screenshots of the problem areas I’ll be happy to help you anyway that I can.

      Cheers,

      -Jonathan

    Just a thought, the mechanic tutorial is kind of weird in its numbering, #2 says 1.2 in the download. #9 says its #2 but when you download the video and sourcefiles it wants to save as #3
