Here's the fixup on the head, thanks for the suggestion Duncan. Seems to be some missing posts after the server went offline.
Will post more stuff soon.

Hay man that looks much better. SO much extra character. Great stuff.

The head certainly has some sort of illustrative quality to it, very impressive indeed!

Thanks for the comments CAD and Kit. I've been a bit busy lately but I'm gonna push myself to get more done. Just over 3 weeks left and the stuff being created in this comp are looking cool. Gonna be good to see the final products.


Here's a work in progress of the modeling and roughing out of his structure, haven't considered poly count yet..

hehe, he looks like he is herding chickens. Progress is looking good, the head has great character. Something look a bit off with the proportions of the hands, fingers might be a bit fat (although he is wearing gloves) or the hands might be a bit narrow across the knuckles? at any rate it is a small detail in the grand scheme.

Hahaha he does aye! Thought that pose would be better when it comes to rigging with the twisting of the wrist bones. Thanks John, I can see what you mean with the gloves being a bit narrow with the knuckles, I'll give that a fix before his rigged.


An update of the model with the normal maps applied, 7 958 tri's so far.. Again cnc's are welcome!

Very impressive =) your modelling looks fantastic

Thanks kit! Here's a render of the calling card. It's a beaker full of toxic waste, in the final shot it will be smaller and darker.
