	Here's a great tutorial on making human models. Mind you, there is minimal
nudity, so the easily-offended need not follow the link. But, Paul Steed
(from id Software and Q3A) shows you how to create a model from a pic of a
human in 3DSMax. He uses a Kelly Monaco pic (rowr, rowr!) but any human pic
can be used to make very convincing models, and I suppose the principle
could be extended to other modelers. At least, it makes a good, free
starting point.


	While you are there, check out the Thinking Outside The Box series. There
are other good modeling tutorials.

	It'd be neat to have a similar column for our site, done with a freely
accessible linux modeler. Oh, the dreams... :) :)
