Hey Jay, great work as always dude, I especially like the eye thingy

The teeth look a bit off to me though, I think the mesh should be a little more bulky below the lower lip to make them seem stronger. Best explanation I can come up with at the moment, hope you get my point. Oh, and sorry for the late crit

Dude, hey its not a prob, Id rather bad crit than no crit at all providing its constructive.

The teeth...hmmm, it was a tricky one to decide on. I had a look at some images of teeth on 'creatures', you know werewolves etc to get a feel for them and how they would look, I even pulled faces in the mirror. The problem is that none of the above mentioned is a relaxed state of the face. The teeth in a movie are false teeth on top of real teeth hence the bulk in the jaw, and as for me pulling faces in the mirror well thats just damn ugly. So I had a look at a dog, tigers and crocs, none of which have any bulk in the lower jaw for the teeth, all have a relaxed look so I did the same with this guy.

Its a tough one to try and do, to make this stuff believable at the end of the day, as long as the facial expressions on this guy work with those teeth I'll be happy enough.
Thanks Dude

Guess that proves it, I watch too many movies Yeah well it might just be the expression. Or the fact that I've more drunk for the past two days than I otherwise have in the last two months all together

I'm tellin' you, Jay. Really nice job on the textures. In particular the tool belt, pants and shoes just look fantastic. And I too like the frosty eye.

I don't think I trust this guy, but he looks like the type who may have information for a price.
