I guess I snuck back up on the 3D modelling horse this weekend and I don't think it went too badly. Here's Francello in Maya.
Next up I start adding texture. We'll see how far I get with my computer though. I have run into a LOT of issues with processing power/basic functionality, so a full Mental Ray render might be out of the question for the time being. You can at least enjoy the basic wireframe though.
