Got the deformer, try it tomorrow. Seems an amazing site. Jesus there's some amazing stuff on the web and around the world. geat stuff.

Jesus thats incredible, one thing, ) the chest hangs a bit like a breast, to one side; mine doesn't.., but I'm skinny? anyway, it seems out of rhythm with the rest.

I feel stupid critiquing a work like this but you might agree, if not.., walk on by..,

yea ill try and find some refs for that area. im pretty much eyeballing much of this model thats why its taking so long. ill fine tune in zbrus to get the proportions more correct once ive finalized the modeling.

thanx for the comments on the chest. i fixed that.

this is the finished mesh. i may tweak in ZB if i see fit. but im pretty happy with it right now.
ill probably mess with the legs a bit more, a few areas need work.

ill start on accessories soon.

Hey Vlad

Overall, its real neat. For me, as you've pointed out already the legs need more work. The calves look to high and the butt/thighs is like Arnold Schwarzeneggers 'in his day'. If the chest was built the same ie: bulky, then it would look right and in proportion, also the front of the quads looks a little too tapered into the knees but other than that all is good

Cheers
Jay

That's looking really good. One thing though is that I think the rib cage over the abs are way to pronounced. You should barely see that at all, unless he has like 4 % body fat and taking a very deep breath (and then he should be more ripped on the other parts of the body aswell)
