    I have a problem, I’ve tried downloading the first, second, and third videos. The second one downloaded good. But the first has stopped three times because my PowerBook G4 has “Failed to Decompress” Same goes for the third video. Is there a possible way around this?

    This was a really great tutorial overall. I can’t wait to see what’s next with this model. I’d really like to see some UV mapping and a tutorial on the particle system.

    Are particle system and UV texturing systems stable or are we waiting on the developers to do some more fine tuning on those systems?

    Jonathan thanks for the tut it answers some questions left by “Kara.” Still have a few though.

    1) Did you ever do the hair. I could not fine a 9th video?
    2) Do you have any videos where you model the inside of the mouth? It’s the only piece missing.

      Hey Bastion,

      Did you not get the part on the hair for Kara? It should be there in the complete download. And no, I have not done a video that covers the inside of the mouth. I do hope to do this in the near future though.

        Thanks for the quick reply. I do have the hair for Kara. It looked like you were doing something different with the Mechanic and I was just interested to see a different technique. Thanks for all the great work.
