Default Scraggle Character

Hi guys,
I got another cartoon character for my animated story.
It' s actually a low poly character at around 2000 polygons
(since my system cannot handle dense meshes). Moreover, these guys travel in packs of 100 so a low poly count is favourable.
Their role is to destroy one of the main characters and they'll stop at nothing until they do.
Kingdom Hearts' "Heartless" was a big inspiration for the character.

Let me know what you think.

nice job - i like him - looks like your texture is messed up on the base tho - you might want to planar map that.

Thanks guys. :attn:
I hope I don't get into too much trouble having a character that resembles a heartless. but a character like that would be perfect for the role.
@ arran - I know the texture on the base is not naturally correct but visually speaking, it does add interest.

I am also working on a poster where the Scraggle is chasing the main character. I'll post it when I am finished.
