Default The Hydrolock

I'm just getting started on this fella, and I thought it might be fun for me to post it as I go... Be forwarned that by the time this thread is done, it'll probably have a ton of large images...

If you want to see my initial concept art on this character, it can be found at my website in the 2D Art section. Last two images at the bottom of the page. Address in sig.

This is about an hour and a half or so... started from a cube

EDIT: Named him.

Unfortunately, I recently lost my contracting job, so I currently have a bit more time than I'd like.

So, I'm trying to add what I hope will be my flagship portfolio piece... this guy will hopefully become a high-res model suitable for cinematics ( ala Blizzard, although realisticly, I don't expect to be that high in quality... but to get as close as I can. ).

Probably won't end up animating him, as it would require some pretty complicated cloth simulation, and I haven't really figured cloth out to that extent... we'll see what happens, though.
