Cheers Ransick.
I'm going to add more detail to the eyes perhaps blend them into the head section. With any luck I'll rig it and animate when done.

dude! your sick! It looks really impressive man! what kinda shader or material did you use ? fits verywell...

maybe you could give some minor things the same colours of the eyes so that it would fit together... (not the body but maybe some spines or linkbone between the arms or something like that)

real nice progress dude looking more forward

The shader is a basic black blinn with brownian as a bump map. Eccentricity is set to 2 and the spec colour is a meduim dark gray. I'm in the process of changing the eyes. I'll add some details once the legs are complete.

Thanks for the comments!
