Just noticed a minor clipping issue on the right elbow. Not sure if it's worth fixing, since it's hard to see and possible to avoid with animation.

I felt like he needed to be wielding a slightly under-scaled Prometheus.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
It's nice, but I think he needs an armor plate over his junk. Some sort of protection. Also, it feels like his forward wrist is overextended. If his elbow has such a shallow bend to it, he'll be carrying it with his fingers, and not his palm.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Sorry, no plating down there.. I don't want him looking like he is wearing his underwear on the outside...

Also, you're right about the wrist there. But regardless, this was a test pose to make sure everything is morphing properly. Good thing too since the test revealed some vertecies that weren't morphing right and they are now fixed.

and many miles be still to go,

With better textures, that thing will kick ass pretty badly!

That's a very important work you got there. What they will be used for? For your animations? Perhaps the people out here who are making 3D scenarios of the hangars could use them too, idk...

Come on, guys, the poll shows that people would donate $322 to the modelling fund, but only $180 has been donated so far.  Show some follow-through! :D

I think chief1983 still has him.  Or Hippo.  I'd have to find out.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Er.. that is awfully similar to this render by  :v:.

Note each  :v: render came with a wireframe version. A little bit of photoshop knowledge and you could make that nice looking image you posted.

I still find it awesome that the Shivans used knives.

Lazor knives!
