Default KindDoggOfWar - Winter Challenge

My sport for this challenge will be Bobsledding. I want to put some touches on the gear, maybe tweak the sport to make a cooler picture but I have started the helmet today. Heres a picture, lowpoly & smoothed.

thanks! rouph isnt the name, This is just a quick model, a small put together to find out what I want to make. This isnt the final model im working on, just a little pre-model. I couldnt get on my computer for more than 30min today so i just fixed some small areas and changed the shape a bit

Wow, looks good - very fast work. I'm also curious to see how this all is going to fit together.

Can you give some clues ?

thank you!I dont have any concept pics, im just concentrating on models right now, then I will think about the surroundings and environment. I dont even know what i want it too look like, im taking parts off random bobsleds and mixing them together! This is a combination of about 3-4 bobsleds so far...
What I want is the bobsled coming around a banked curve being followed (Fairly far away) by another bobsled. Then the fun! I want the bobsledder in back (its a two man bobsled) to turn around with a futuristic pistol (kinda like han solos) and firing at the bobsled behind. Combat Bobsledding. Sounds retarded and probably will be but i want to do it anyway!:p Id like to mess with some chrome shaders on the gun.
This is coming along slowly now because ive been extremely busy. Over this thanksgiving break I should be able to get alot done!

small update on the helmet!:p I tweaked the bobsled a bit, but i think beside texturing, the rough sled is done. I might put it in the background for the final, but definitely not the main focus.
