I did this alongside the tutorial, pausing so I could take my own notes and follow the steps. Tweaked things a bit here and there and I'm so happy with the result! I realise my monkey head isn't as smooth as everyone else but that is probably because I didn't remember to edit the parameters when I first made the mesh and I didn't want to go back and redo it so I left it as it is. That's a note I've made for next time.
Oliver, your tutorial was fantastic and easy for me to get my head around things. It was so easy to start picking up the shortcuts and some parts I was just listening to the audio while on the program itself.
I hope this has turned out okay and I'll be looking forward to more of the lessons.
