Default July/Aug - Norm - BillyZ

I know I'm almost a month into this contest but I figured I could use what I've been working on for myself in the scene. My scene is derived on the huge amount of homeless people here in Vancouver, BC.. I was totally inspired to design a character standing under the bloom of a street lamp.. beggin for change.

Any C&C..

I like the textures, but there is something horribly wrong with his arms around where they connect to the shoulders. oh... and he's headless

Hey Mhcannon, yah I heard that there's something wrong with the arms.. I know that the right has too long of a forearm I reduced that personally I don't see whats wrong with the arm sockets.. can anyone draw showing me what I need to do? Headless yes.. I did start with a head, but didn't like it.. so I'm leaving that till the end.

Default Arm

Hi Billy
I think under the shoulder,above or on the bicep,
theres an indent of what could be an armband imprint.
Nice boots.
