Nice and clean - well done - although he`s a lot skinner than the concept, think it needs more mass.

You Uv`in in maya or zbrush ???

Only thing I would change is the angle of the arms now your done - because its low poly it`s some what better to cut them off and angle then down it might help rig/pose him and then rebuild were needed - but its up to you and your idea on a final pose.

Mate looking good, I have to agree a little more mass I think the chest needs to be a little more robust. The upper leg too I reckon mate...I wouldnt make him massive muscle wise...then again if you are going to Z you can do it in there probably with more precision....nice wires too mate

cheers bullet

Great Modeling. but I must agree with Chirone, Bullet1968 and Tweetytunes on the whole muscle mass thing. right now he looks more like your average starter level hero.

Actually i was also going the same way but i realised i wanted weapons that would compliment his physique and make look increadibly quick so just bear with me guys abit i'm thinking it will all come together

Right know i am uv done uv mapping and my god i think i just found my least favourite chore in the world they really should make this way easier to do in maya

Ill post up the updates later when i get home

Haha I ended up saying pretty much the same thing in the last challenge. It's just sooooo tedious.
