Hello you two!
Fantastic looking work so far from both of you!
Katy: I love your model and that you've started rigging it too! It's going to look great when it starts moving! :D Keep at it and I look forward to seeing the next characters too! :P
Sean: Great concepts! They're exactly what we're after! If you're still stuck on how we texture them in Maya then just use different toned surface shaders on the models, but to add the toon shader outline load up the Rendering options, go to Toon>Toon Outline>Assign new outline (I think those are the right instructions anyway). Fiddle with the settings until you find something you like but if you get super stuck just make another post.
Keep it up guys! It's not long until I'm back to start building things again and hopefully it won't take long to do but just so you know, I'm happy to do the animation if you guys have other things to be getting on with. We'll talk more about that later though, for now: DON'T GIVE UP! :)
