So talking with other people has shown me that the polys for the Crow's model (26,000 polys) was far FAR too much.Yet I am so far into the process and schedule I thought I couldn't change it. However, I kept finding myself staring at the Crow and feeling more and more unsatisfied at just leaving it........so I changed it. Hehe my bad
Now it's 20,000 or so polys less and I was able to semi-fix her whole harsh cheekline problem (almost). So......yes I'm going to be behind schedule. Tsk tsk. *-* BUT she looks awesome in terms of silhouette and there really isn't a big change, plus huge amount of polys/tris saved. Whee!
