Great start for your first character..... Overall your pretty close to the image plane. Just play around pushing and pulling out some more of the form aound the belly and thigh areas.

Keep going...

Looks great man, especially the trenchcoat. Oh, and don't worry about the rigging. It gets easier as you do it more. I get excited when I finally get to rig and pose a character.

I would say you did a bang up job on your first organic character. I like the look of him (it?). Keep up the good work.
