Default New Alien Character

Allright guys, here is the result of being bored in 7th period study hall(skool) today. I know he looks abit funny, mainly cause i cant draw for beans. Its name is Jimbo Feeble. Gonna be animating him after I model him. Thinking about using Sub-Divs, then convert to polys when I texture. Whatcha guys think? Oh, and I know I spelled Feeble wrong on the pic, and that thing between his legs is his tail.

I think he will have a lot of character with his tail, and his hillarious wide eyes!

Hey this is looking good . Keep it up and make sure you do the same for the neck as you did for the arms (kinda blend the neck into the head). Should be very cool .

EDIT - Nice green added, gives a feel of the overall model . I dont personally like the default grey on black . GJ

definitively an alien.... take a look at the arms... most lifeforms have arms which have the same length...

and what M said is correct: the different body parts should blend into each other... it gives a more creature look

The arms are supposed to be different sizes. I made it like that on purpose.

WWWWWWOW, thats bright . Heh, what i think you should do is either dont do a GI joe render, or instead, make the green on the character SUPER dark.. so that it becomes bright. BTW, the legs are cool, but i feel they are a bit too far apart, even for your model . Coming along nice though.

Ya, the GI Joe render was just a test, to see if it worked or not. About the legs, now that I look at it, they do look abit wide. Ill have to fix that.

Just adjust the brightness down on your GI_Joe settings and it should look fine.
