As a goal to learn 3DS Max fully and expand on my artistic skills, I entered a Mixamo 3D modeling contest. Here are some screenshots from that process.
Please note that I don't claim to be a modeler, nor is that my primary job focus. I write code primarily, but I can get around in 3DS Max and Photoshop/Illustrator very well, and that helps me to help you. In some cases, I have saved my clients time and money by not having to get a 3rd person artist involved for small changes or when needing new UI textures.
