B-BAWK!

Nice! I like how the whole environment works together like that. It's got a great feel!

Out of curiosity, what does the Subdivision Surface modifier do?

Thanks, Chicken! :D

Uh... how to explain... Basically, you could say it smooths objects by increasing the resolution (I.E. the number of vertices, edges, and faces) and recalculating how the geometry should "flow", if that makes sense. Here's a couple examples:
Cube:
I start with a standard cube, made of six identical square faces joined at right angles

The Subdivision Surface modifier (hereafter referred to by the more common name of "Subsurf"), at one level, subdivides each face into two faces both ways, so there are now four faces for each of the previous faces. This new geometry is then recalculated to flow better, being smoothed and thus becoming a little more spherical.

At two levels of Subsurf, each of the original faces is subdivided into three faces both ways, for a total of nine faces for each original face, recalculated and smoothed as previously.

And so on.

Gear: Like so with this object.
No Subsurf:

One level:

Two levels:

Et cetera.


Make sense?
