  3. Awesome tutorial. I watched it last night with the earth one. Keep them coming mate, I’ll buy them all. I’m learning a lot of stuff with those.

    1. Thanks Tom, glad you liked it. I have one more in production (character modeling) and a few in planning, so watch this space!

  4. Hi, Dave –
    Just watched the tutorial and liked it a lot. I am confused about one thing, though. When you made the hands you used Cover to “extrude” them out. But then when you were making the ridges on the body, you used Extrude. I am confused by when you would which command and why. I have never seen “Cover” in another 3d program. Thanks.

    1. This is one that quite a few people ask about and to be honest the difference is quite small. Cover is a little bit more flexible as it can extrude edges and it works nicely with the transform tool, so essentially if I know that I’m going to be transforming the extrusion (with scale for example) then I’m more likely to use cover. If its simply a pure extrusion along the normals then I may opt for extrude. To be honest, it’s a case of whichever gets the job done. For a long time I never used extrude when modelling, always using cover instead.

      1. Thanks, that’s about what I thought. Keep up the great work on your tutorials!
