I have read what John put on the previous post and when i got home from work i decided to have ago at re-shaping my character. I think i know what you mean John in the previous post but i think it would be a good idea to meet up with you tomorrow and discuss it abit more? Anyway i decided to compare my character with the UT3 character that i downloaded and i noticed that my proportions where way off the mark. So as a simple experiment i decided to re-shape all the body parts to more like the UT3 character model and here is the results:
As you can see from the pictures there is a big improvement from the old and new models it isn't perfect i know but at least i can see it now. Am i on the right track here John? What do you think?
