    How did I do guys? I'm really enjoying 3D modelling, and you're an awesome teacher Mike!
    I tapered off the tip a little more, and added a few gnarly spikes 😛

    Wow, as a student, KeyShot is not only a fascinating piece of software, but also perhaps one of the most expensive pieces of software I've come to contact with. Any idea how to get it cheaper / for free / a good enough alternative? Thanks in advance!

    When I used ctrl+e to extrude the mesh plane It did not extend like yours did at 7:00. it brought up the extend menu but thats it. I selected the face and shift clicked on the curve. I have been tinkering with it for quite some time but I haven't been able to get the same result as you. Any ideas what it could be?

    Hi, great tutorial. Do you know how to use a track tool on Mac? I can't find the shortcut and I have to activate this tool from viev-camera tools-track tool. It's annoying. I can use rotate tool in easy way, but not the track tool Thank you in advance for your help.

    Mike, you are the greatest tutor on YouTube! You have taught us to pay attention to small detail. With that being said, it looks like you put that this was made with Maya 2016 in the description by accident.

    Do you recommend another rendering source? I am new to this (like, less then a week) and it would be pre-mature to buy KeyShot for 1,995, especially at the cost. The trial version is covered in a watermark and I don't know another rendering source I could use. Do you have any recommendations?

    Hi, thanks for an other great tutorial, just a question. Could you start making it a common practice to include the links to all the reference pictures in the description? It would simplify things for a lot of people i think. Although a part of the job is finding the perfect references and to do some research i think it feels like the sensical thing to do. Again, thanks for the amazing content you're putting out!
