Hi guys, this is/will be my first challenge so fingers crossed I will be able to complete it in time for the deadline. I have chosen, for those who remember the lead character in Bionic Commando which was the first game I really got hooked on to aside from the Mario series. Here's a few images to jog your memories.

A quick update. Still very early on in the modelling process, I need to sew up the seams between the torso and the pants. Also the right arm will make way for a bionic one in due time. All crits welcomed.

Nice start.
His legs look a little short for the body though, are you using any reference? If not grab the proportions from some of the images on www.fineart.sk.
You might have to trawl through some of the pages but its definately worth it.

Cheers t1ck, I've been using reference for the top half though I pretty much freestyled the bottom half though I can see where you're coming from thanks for the link.
