I've started my new book. It has half the pages compared to my first book and there's much less information per page, yet it costs just the same. While it took me two months to go through the first book, after one week I'm almost done with the second. Anyway, it's another beginners book. While the first one had a variety of projects covering different topics, this book for the most part has just one project that will span the breadth of Maya. It's all focused on the pudgy guy above.
First up is the making the guy. I started with with a rough shape and refined it from there. I'm only doing one half of him so once I'm done, I can just reflect over the other side. Below I have the general shape that I want.
