Ok .. I'm going to ask this out of pure ignornace...

What's the difference between using a cube that's been subpatched and metaformed and simply using a subpatched sphere?

If you create a sphere by subpatching a cube the object will be a sphere made up of quads. A sphere created with the sphere tool will have triangles at the poles which doesnt look great with subpatches.

Ahh! Understood. I guess I could used a little common sense on that one before I asked. I guess I'm lazy that way. Thank you sir.

There is a tennis ball tutorial by Proton around here somewhere that might be a starting point for you.

I saw that tutorial and I creat my tennis ball, but itīs not the best way to change that ball into my character, to many poligons to animate later, especially if you try to make it speak, or morph the mouth.
