Looking very cool. For the horns, you might want to texture them as being darker toward the skull and blending to a lighter color toward the tip, as well as ridges and the like.

The tatoo idea is good but how can you tatoo something coverred with fur? I think you should change the texture of the tatoo to make them burn mark. It would also help him to look meaner.

Good luck!

cheers guys...

mayaguy - see above post to yours the horn texturing ain't really started yet - it will def be darker - cheers

blomkaal - yeah these comps are fun and they definitely spur you on to finish (not that I always finish tho )

Mike - I get where you are coming from will have a go at the texturing tonight - see what I come up with.

Mantat - yeah I was trying to acheive that sort of effect - there is asmall amount of bump which should create an indentation effect - like a branding/burn but not sure about the actual colouring of a burn/brand - will investigate further

once again ta for all comments

I think it should get lighter toward the tip, although, now that I've looked for some pics, I've found some that look both ways.

You might also want to experiment with the ridge direction.... some of these pics seem to have the ridges running along the horn's length rather than around the width.

cheers mike - I tried the ridges going down the length of the horns I prefer the radial ones - but here is a pic with both dark at beginning and end - which do you think looks best (given that the textures aren't the best just yet....... I haven't made my mind up yet

The recess (sp?) in the horns seem a little too deep. As for color, I dont like the black much. It kinda remove the texture from the horn but I have no idea how to fix this...

Now about the new wristband: its great! Are you going to make a breastplate in the same material or go for leather armor?

Keep going, its going to look great!

Rubberkidney - yeah I will go with dark at the base - cheers

rubberchicken - did you mean dark closest to the head?

Dragonhawk - the texture on the horns is basically done in photoshop - a gradient from dark brown to light brown, then a couple of filters added to get the ridged look - one being the texturizer (canvas) - my texturing skills if I have any it's thanks to this place - download the texturing tutorials - you will learn lots from them!!

Mantat - do you mean the dark little dark depressions? it's just a bump so I can change that easily enough - the dark texture - yeah I darkened it too much - it's easy enough to change as well so I will. Will be making a breastplate - probably a similar material - with leather around hopefully - cheers for you comments
