a slow start to my pre project

I'm going to a pre cartoon to learn how to use the software and get the feel of stop motion. I don't want to many surprises. So far I'm off to a very slow start.. I have the armature started, but I think I'm going to redo the head. When I get it finished Ill use it as an avatar. I've given myself a year for this project, and the main project, but I think it may take longer. Your suggestions are always welcome.See More
