This is a Dwarf charachter I finshed recently.
Any crits/compliments are welcome.

He looks pretty good, no real crits other then id like to see orthos, cause his beard looks a tad confusing... is it on seperate planes or just modelled as an extrusion off his chest?

Yer here's the orthos you asked for.

His Beard is more or less a seperate elemetnt to his chest. Its a part of his head with a few plane's overlaying slightly over his cheek's with alpha's, it took a while to get the desired result but im happy with it.

Nice .. I like it . Only crit i have, it would have been nice to see some sort of mucles definition for his arms and legs .. at the moment their looking a bit blocky. Good job on the texturing :)

yeah the alphas look a bit odd, kinda got three prongs to his beard. Get some photo refs and perhaps change it to be a bit more rounded. Thats what stands out the most to me

Kratos - when i get some more time ill looking ot that ATM with work and not much free time i wont be able to do it anytime soon but yer good point.

MoonUnit - His Beard has 3 "prongs" becuase thats the way i drew it from the concept, also I didnt give the beard enough texture res in retrospect to make it how i wanted it.

But I am only using a 512x512 for him and a 256x256 for his Axe.

ah then perhaps some more definition to the different sections of the beards.. what im trying to say here is perhaps put some lines between the "prongs" in the texture so it actually looks like three more seperae ellements at the bottom. if that makes sense

Yer thanks MoonUnit that makes sense [:)] good point.

Cool model, a nice tweak would be to push the metal's highlights so they pop a bit more.
