Default Pyramid Head (silent hill)

Hi everybody,

In this project I want to make 'pyramid head' from silent hill.
It's one of my favourite characters. A few days ago I saw the silent hill movie and the pyramid head looked really cool that inspired me to model him

Here's the start on him:

from the front the model looks real good, only from the rear it looks like his right shoulder is dislocated

I think it looks a bit stupid because of the flat shading.

little update: (more updates will come tomorrow )

it looks cool - but why are you modelling him in a pose - at the moment it's looking kind of awkward and unnatural - i might model him in the T pose and then decide how I want him to stand.

Thanks for the comment
I wanted to bring him in this pose: picture
I found it on google and a lot of the pyramid heads are in this pose. I like it most

It's just a bump map. The whole skin texture is self-drawn. Then I took the color map, made it black/white and played around with the settings (in photoshop).
