Well we just finished our animation! It was a fun class and the students all produced nice work. After long hours of work and multiple computer crashes, my model is finally done.... well for now. I didn't have much time to really look into coloring the model using UV maps (where the model is broken up into pieces, and exported to photoshop for coloring), so I'd like to come back to it using this method after some research. Overall, I am happy with the piece. It is my second 3D rendering and I plan on making plenty more!
