After having a tutorial and chatting to some of the guys who are much better and practised at modelling then me, I realised there were things I could do differently to make the model smoother and I actually find it easier to work on different parts in different sections. The previous screen shots of the model are where I have attempted to put a jacket on the character, but it isn't very clear and is very boxy. So i tried again in a different way, doing the jacket and chaps seperately and adding them on. this looks much better and much more smooth. definately not perfect or as good as it could be so I'll keep working on it, however a huge improvement to what I had before!
