tariqrf, ereitz

I just relised what might be cousing the confustion about the legs. let me explain hear and see if they don't make more sence to you all after that.. if not please let me know..

the part in blue on the legs.. I know this is a front view but the legs are angled so that even though they are thin and ovalish from both the front and the side they look fat and squar. the part in blue on the legs is ware acualy the normals of thoughs faces are going to be facing more inwards than frontwards..

this help ?

still looking at the muscle layout though..

Wicket !! whats up mate.. thanks.. and thanks VAMPIRe yeah can't wait to get it to 3d eather.. being on the other computer to get on the net really blows..!!

Wicket so its true that SD pc133 don't work in DDR motherboards.. having to replace mother board and finding one for a P4 but with SDRam is hard.. really don't want to have to get the motherboard and the DDR at the same time.. sucks..

am thinking about bilding a dual Xeon 2.5 type monster though later in a month or so..

I perfer to work on paper though. comp is good for edits to get things right though when working through a pic or consept your not totaly sure about the direction though.

Very Inventive man, a thought on the claws: If you were still tweaking, check out a raptor claw, or maybe a retractible one like a cat or lion.

By, the way Keep up the sketching man!

Looks very good so far and I'm excited to see the modelling. The only thing at all that throws off the drawing for me is the little decomposed portion of the tail. I think it'd be cool to expand that and have other portions decomposed as well. Like maybe some of the muscles in one of the legs, which makes him walk with a limp, or maybe some serious wing damage. Its hard to crit something so well done. Can't wait to see more.
