Yet to be decided.

Good luck mate "
Thanks man. Hopefully I'll get at least 1 or two models done a week between work and personal projects. This model took about 8 hours to complete, only because I was taking snapshots every few clicks and logging what I was doing for the tutorial series.

Although I am a Hexagon user, but I've never actually got along with its UV Mapping and Texturing tools, generally because they seem to be buggy on this laptop (and it was when I used it on my old laptop)
Unless of course you blew all your money on UVMapping and Texturing tools, something like Bodypaint 3D or ZBrush then I don't wanna hear from you. "
Lol! I actually use Wings3D for UVmapping. All you have to do is cut and hit unwrap and your pretty much done. I like the toolset and everything can be done with the mouse, which I prefer over the key shortcut method. As for texturing I use a 8 year old copy of PsP.
I've currently taken up Gimp, which is a heck of a lot better in terms of extensions. I'll be making the switch soon.
Unfortunately I'll be dropping Truespace 7 soon. The fact that it's not supported by Microsoft anymore...after they bought it and promised to develop it more...I've started learning Blender. I'll be making the switch there soon as well.
