Well did the arms first - they were not hard at all and means the legs might be the same - here`s hoping.



The hip were by far the hardest part so far, but not as hard as I thought. Need to go in and fix some tri`s II have in there but that can wait.



But thats me done for the night I think - pooped out - Might just get the legs done to finish it off as I am not doing the hands and feet because I know they will be covered up.

hehe, those hips look like they were fun to model.

If you carry on at this rate, you'll be done by tomorrow evening

nice work.

Ok made a start with the shield - and I could not help it but to have a dig at Mayaniac (HE HE)



After looking though them I thought I would go for the one with the Minotaur on it, but I liked the shield that told a story so looked for a better image for the main graphic. Striped it down to a black and white image and placed it in a centre and added some symbols around it to make the texture

I have also made the holders for the string and arm on the other side with out the string yet (do that once I know what the final pose will be.

Simple but effective - Basic looking helmet but as I said wanted a normal solider helmet - will add more detail in the bump map.

Gave in and made a hand. Was going to give this guy some gloves but looking at some different armers the gloves would not match. This has to be the hardest part so far - Its taken hours and still not 100% happy with it. Also tweaked the arm alittle aswell.

Oh well, getting there....

Nice work on the hand.

I've pretty much just got home... didn't have chance to work much on my minotaur today, so I won't be updating today

But it's just got me itching to get something done tomorrow.

Nice to see we have another contender.

Moving on to the shoes - Think I`m going to need to make some feet - dam it - oh well at least the skeleton will be whole after that.

Here is some ref - but I think I`m going for the black sandle type thing in the upper middle
