cool. im interested to see how he comes along, both in colour and sculpting, how u go between maya and z, and how that hair turns out. i never added hair to the couple of characters i made. if it looks good, i might have to ask you for pointers! have u built the base human from scratch?

yup, base mesh was created from scratch, doing it in maya means i wont have to waste time adjusting things in zbrush, i can just import it and sculpt away,

wi'll post more updates later today,

another thing which strikes me about this jali, is that you havnt given him many accessories. the first kind of game character i made was quite sparse and i found it left a hell of alot of ground to be covered with folds and creases. for the second character i made sure to add more in maya before going to z. but i wasnt really working with any poly limit in mind. have you set yourself a limit?
