Default Mike Climer: New Character

Hey guys, this is a new model I started about two days ago. It's for my school's demo reel, and would like some feedback. Dont hold back.

Thanks a lot
Mike

I think the biggest thing detracting from it to me is the lack of understandable formations on the head... I really am confused as to what exactly is that thing on his neck?! lol Other than that, interesting looking critter.

Yes, interesting indeed. What bothers me the most is the balance between the front and rear parts. He looks like he's run 100mph into a brick wall and got shortened a foot or two Nice detail though!

Very great modeling there. Details are sure there. I am with mike about the face, that could be just personal taste though. The one thing I do see though that seems out of line of the rest of the quality is where they arms attach to the body. It looks like there glued on and there is no supporting structure of muscles for them there.

over all a promising model.

Thanks guys. The face seems to be the real problem area. And now that i look at it more closely, i see where you're all comming from. I think I'm going to rework the head, and I'll definately work on the shoulder area.

Default "Cheek" sacks be gone!!

Here is a new concept design for the characters head. I see the testicular resemblance you speak of. It has a bit more of an ape look.
