This was suppose to be an easy and fun assignment. I bit off more than I could chew. My idea was to have my hippo hanging out of my train (both of which were made in Lightwave.I ended up learning a bunch. How to prepare the objects for 3D Coat and what not to import without them being properly made. I did get a cool looking train when imported though I couldn't paint most of it.
Even the hippo had some problems with the face and feet. That's why he's from Bizarro World.
Yes I know they have white skin, but my farmboy hippo has a "farmer's tan".
