Need tutorials or help in creating a puppet style character

Hi there,

I am interested to create a puppet style character or dummy such as a ventrologist's dummy from scratch.  I have searched for tutorials and have noticed how to make a bear at Youtube.  I have not watched the 8 videos in the series yet, but want to know if there are any other ways or tutorials to get started.  I wanted to try it in Sketchup but for that I need to buy the artisan organic toolset/plugin which is not possible at the moment.  I believe one can do organic modeling in Hexagon too (?) but don't know how.  

Any help and suggestions are much appreciated!

  • I know Danny (CG Dreams) did make a video tutorial on making a rabbit with Hexagon, it is on YouTube somewhere, but not sure where. I'll have a look and post a link if I find it.  Not exactly a dummy but the idea is the same :)

    No "Sketchup" ... nooooo .....

    Organic modeling is relatively easy in Hexagon. Most things start out as a box. Those extraction tools are wonderful.

    Thank you for your help and screen shots.  I am currently also watching a few Hexagon videos which are helpful especially if they talk you through the process and not playing music only as some videos does.

    ... and if they talk loud enough one can hear them. [there are a few that are too quiet]
