okey, Dont have time for sketches so most of the credit for this will go to Mikes online sharkman tutrial here http://www.mtmckinley.net

I used the shark man refs for the main body, I am taking the legs from a ref I found on the net here: http://www.fineart.sk/man3_template.jpg

I found and the rest Im going to make up as I go!

It will be some form of half man / robot dude, havn`t got time to sketch pictures as this would be the best part of ta day to get how I want it.

So.... part 1:

right He is now officially "DinoBot"

Dont worry guys I will add lots of "metal areas" to make him more roboty

I am just roughing out the shape for now, soon as I have him closer I will add some cool detail

Here ya go:
