Man I don't think that the problem is with my internet connection because the video buffers completely but it stops playing after a couple of seconds!

I think it's from Howcast. I didn't comment on yesterday's post not because I don't like it but I really wanted to watch the video... awesome as usual!

Check it out man, I also tried tt watch the video from Howcast website but still is stoped playing after about 3-5 seconds while the video loaded completely!

Thanks and regards!

Now I know the internet is being poor here, but the tutorial seems to work fine.

wow. That arm is really nice.
Luca said…
Today it worked fine... don't know what's wrong sometimes-- that's internet!

Anyways, well done brother, there is no need to tell you but I'll say it again that your metal rendering is awesome!

Luca I have the same problem when I use Mosilla but with Internet Explorer is a little better!
Back to you Xia, very inspiring!I like both versions but the big armor IS more serious.V1 reminds me of Super Droid from Star Wars.
Anyway I see you recommend Adobe Photoshop CS4.Is it better from Cs2.I can buy it but I am not sure.So tell if it's good!

Peace!

Luca & Knuckle > Yeah, I notice that too. It's really weird. Really, that's why I host them videos on multiple platform from now on, just in case one went down, I still have another.

Pokepetter> it's been a while for Mecha, I try...it will get better. :)

dahaca> Yep, browsers also can contribute to speed and streaming depending on what host communicate with which browsers better. Thanks brother!
As for CS2 or CS4, it doesn't really make much different to me painting, concepting and illustration. Get the cheap student discount ones. :)
