Very cool. I would have him leaning a bit more forward. He seems to upright. Looks reall good from the front. You are very close.

By the way, did you ever finish the scene for your Bradely.

Not bad, the feet step a bit hard right now, and you need a lot more rotation in hips and spine... Keep it up=)

Thanks guys, for the crits. RickStefani: The M2 Bradley is all modeled out, just needs to be textured.

I have been tweaking the curves, hips, shoulders and made some small adjustments to the arms and legs. I'll have some updates tomorrow afternoon.

thnaks,
Kassun

Looks good. With the speed he is walking the bowed head also helps with the attitude. EDIT* that did not come out right. I meant it has more personality.

the reason he was jumpy is that there were key on my z azis on the root, i kep the beg and end and deleted all the middle keys. He is alot smoother now, I fixed his roll on the foot so it is smoother. It is getting there. The roll may still look odd, but he is wearing boots, and boots don't really crease all that much. I put an arc on the x axis for the foot so it moves inward slightly and back out on the stride. The arms are a bit exagerated, but i like the look of them. I have a few minor tweaks to do to curvers tomorrow, before I can call this done. Thanks all that replied for the great feed back, you guys always see something that i over looked.

here is a update
