Another cool piece of work by the very talented paolo lamanna be sure to check out his youtube channel for a breakdown of modeling/texturing this work. You can also see all his other artwork at his site http://www.paololamanna-artworks.com/3d-works/
Also wheres the 1.8 update? I know people keep asking this and i keep answering very soon but really it is very very soon and i am working hard on it.:) (found a few more minor bugs that needed to be fixed first and as long as no other bugs comes to light in the final testing it will be approx. a week or two before release).
