I mentioned I had messed up a little. I don't want to be too technical here because I want this to be fun. I don't really know much about real 3D modeling programs, but there are some things it helps to know. This image is a zoom in with the W button pushed. W stands for wireframe. That is really what your image is made up of. Like I said I don't understand it either, but those little triangles are part of the wireframe. The smaller they are the more detail. I started out with too big of triangles, so there is some rough looking areas on the nose and the teeth. I'll fix that in the mix.
Hope you can see the detail a little better in this image. See how larger triangles make the nose look wrong.
More smoothing and grabbing and adding a little more detail and I'm done. Not the greatest tiki, but it is our first try …... I lied, we are not done. Time to switch software because we have to get our model ready to send somewhere and have it printed in 3D.
