Me and Aidan were tackling the modelling. After about 7 goes at it, Conann happened to show how to model using the poly cube and edge loops with completely changed how we went about modelling here is screen shots of our progress.
We played around with the texture on the critters body until we got this nice slick look.
Oh and yeah we were lucky enough to get our model up on BBC newsline, during a piece about the animation industry in NI.
Some useful and interesting tutorials->
