My little Elfin guy has been put to one side. My little bro has finally given me an image to work with. I've been nagging him for quite some time now. The only thing that got him going is kurt's character challenge!

Oh well, here it is.

Lookin gd bro

... but if ur modeling it to the proportions on my image , then the only thing i would say is that the torso is a bit stretched ... i drew it to about '6heads' tall , ur proportions look as if they are about "7heads"

Well now its got a head to start counting head heights by... If u want it exactly the way u draw it then at least give me some front and side sketches...

C&C please. built the whole model on a low poly count. 1600 at present with hands left to go. So I haven't quite got as many lines as i'd like to. mite post the unsmoothed version soon.

Looking good, I really like the concept. One minor crit, the fingers should not be the same leanghs.

Right then, had a real play around with the model. Rigged it, found lots of modelling flaws. in particular an elusive 5 side that wudn't behave. found some more proportion problems.

So it was back to modelling again. hopefully i got it close enough now. any C&C?
