Hey Doc Rob

Looks good so far, but perhaps a little too early for any big crit.
Best regards

I like the torso and legs, but I think the elbows need to be done in similar way for visual consistancy and easier articulation.

Great work so far!

I actually like how the arms are compared to the legs. You might want to change his armor though, im not so sure about that weird hump by his chest at the moment. Depends what you do with it i think. Anyways, keep it up!

I see the point with the legs and arms, personaly I like it but i do see where you are coming from.
That lump in the torso will have a control port set in for an external device. Working on the gloves, a backpack and an industrial welding tool at the moment. Only the backpack is going well lol. I'll update soon.

Cheers Guys

honestly i dont really like the legs. they look like to me mega man legs, unless thats what your trying to go for. i think if you are trying to go for that you should exaggerate other features, a bigger head etc. but if you are going for realistic i think make those legs and feet a little smaller.
other than that it looks really good, much better than anything i could do cant wait to the finished.

Haha megaman is what came to mind when i saw the legs too .. but i'd have to disagree about them being too much.. its just the general style i think, the legs would have to be poofed out around 3 times to get that megaman style. I'd say proportions are good . On the other hand though, i don't get how the knee joints work... looks like one solid piece
