No worries. A 4-year-old girl would be too small for this bike.

Re: Ad break: Southern Comfort

Say what you want, I know that come Halloween I will see a lot of guys dressed as this.
I also think that the ad has been fairly successful. This is anecdotal, but a buddy of mine who bar tends, said SOCO sales at his bar went up noticeably around the airing of this ad.

Should designers work with shapes (shoe lasts) strictly? If you have a last shape this is ideal, but not necessary for just sketch work. As you move into a more finished design/rendering it can help a lot. If you are using a last, besure to allow for material thickness. Or can also submit proposals ...

Re: Adidas Next Step

Nice to see you experimenting with construction.
I hope you don't mind but I took a few minutes to play with the proportions on your latest rendering. It is not perfect, but you can see the idea

Check out this site for some pretty cool tutorials:

They are geared towards illustration but once you know how to use the tools you can use them for ID purposes.

What ID specifics purposes are you looking for? (techpacks, sketching, rendering...)

I also liked the proximity to the beach and the opportunity to play sports at the college level. Midway through my Soph. year I took advantage of my electives a...
