If you really love the holidays then the cartoon Santa is a great tutorial. We will start off this tutorial by creating image planes to create the correct shape and proportion of are Santa. Some of the modeling techniques used will be shaping in nurbs, converting to polygons to add details and then into sub'ds to define the final shapes.
Once the modeling of our new character is complete we will start preparing our model for texturing. The first step is laying out the Uv's for all the separate parts of the body to make them flat so we can get a nice clean UV snap shot for our painted textures. On completion of are UV snap shot we will import into the paint program Photoshop. You will learn how to use layers for different areas as well as how to stain up certain parts of the body like the head and shirt for a more natural look.
