Cheers Rich.
Kevin this piece had a strange process to it. What you see there is all pencil and pen ink straight onto paper, but in the plotting stage I used a texture map I had previously created on a 3D model and took several renders for referance of how the light would hit it

that a great meathod will, if u can man, id loved some tips. ive seen some of your 3d max movies and im very impressed, there very good, i'd love some serious tips, if you can man try get in touch with me, the 3d reference is great, at the mo im creating a lay out for 3d max 6 its tough, i have to create an old time village, medieval period, but im enjoying it, but id love to create some 3d comic book models!!

Cheers Kevin. I wont lie, 3D takes a lot of hard work to get into. (Not quite as much as comics but a lot none the less)
To start off man if you want to do 3d comic book characters I'd highly recommend doing this tutorial
