Should I add that link to my signature? I didn’t before because I thought it was easy to find from my home page. There are links to it on both my tutorials page and my links page.
Hmmm, I guess you should just start very basic and then progress to doing the barbarian. There are a couple of modeling tutorials on wiseman303’s links. If you have a fast connection there are video tutorials that deal with modeling on polycount. http://www.planetquake.com/polycount/resources/general/video_tutorials/video-tut-list.shtml It’s on wiseman303’s links.
Well the thing is you need to practice techniques that other people use that’ll suit you. One thing you should really look at are the texturing tutorials. That by far is the hardest thing to do. If I had all the free time I wanted I would go through all those tutorials and definitely practice doing texturing. Once you have the modeling techniques down you should be able to model a better barbarian.
