    Hey all,
    I'm kinda new to the boards. I've been reading the site for about three years and decided to join up.

    I've been designing a character for my 3d portfolio, named Nomad, based on a 56 chevy nomad. All my WIP stuff is at CGTalk via this link. Included are animation and still shots to clue you in on my progress.

    -Thanks!

    Sweet. Keep up the great work. Whatever you do, don't drop an I-beam on it, lol. Few will probably understand that joke, but, I had to say it.

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for the great reactions. This guy's being built in Maya using a mixture of polys and nurbs. I'm getting my balls busted for not finishing Prime's speech, but I'm planning on doing the whole thing with the full body.

    Amazing! The animation is simply stunning. I absolutely LOVE the fact you are using an older style of car. Fifties and Sixties is my favorite generation when it comes to vehicles, so I'm really excited to see this piece and can't wait to see it completed!

    i don't see why, it's Prime's speech, not Nomad's... Just having enough to watch the mouth move is sweet enough. You're doing a great job!
