Yeah I spotted those lines on the hand too, not sure what happened there. I have some non-planar polys in the arm, so I'll be giving everything another look. I just wanted to post what I had so far.
The head has 24 segments and the hand only 12, should have probably done a few more, although the arm has 12 and will look ok once I fix a few polys.
I have a Lightwave job comming up soon and I havent even touched it since March 06, so I need some practice and this seemed like a good idea. I might make a MiniMe out of it.
I was also thinking about using my new found minifig lore to design a similar style minifig that doesn't break patents.
