THe IUdea and the jet pack looks great but there seems like a few issues with the dude, the shoulders look a bit strange and as stated the hands look a bit off, and the face looks a tad strange.

honestly i could care less what the guy looks like at this point . he is my dummy mesh that has amazing topology. i will simply put him into zbrush and it will look fine. my real concern right now is getting the armor right.

Nice.

The jet pack looks good. It's just so huge. I'm not sure if he could physically stand up with it on without tipping over, or leaning stupidly froward, also it sticks so far out from his back. I'm not sure if those two braces could hold it.

That's all I can see when it comes to potential problems, look good otherwise.

yea sure I will post some wires and stuff later tonight. I should have everything modeled too. oh and dont worry i will make it look like it works. he is going to have full body armor cept for his arms. the arms will be fairly untouched because they are suppose to go into the two side controls on the jet pack.

also one more thing im going to eventully zbrush this entire model. so the finished model itself will probably be around 70k tris which is workable i think.

If you wan the armour right then wouldent it be a bit of a concern to get the anatomy of the character right so it all fits together?

And if you couldnt care less about how it looks then whay ask what people think of your character?
