Default Tweetytunes - "Trapjaw" Horror Challenge

Going for a re-make of Trapjaw from He-Man.

Been planing to make this guy for years now and I think this challenge is perfect for it. He is one scary dude if you look at him closely (no jaw - no right arm missing legs ??? yet still fighting the masters of the universe) - although the cartoons always made him goofy.

Here is some ref but I have the toy in hand which is a great point of call and as I said going to redesign him a little just to leave my stamp on it. Really have a strong leaning to making him a women - don`t ask why I just think it would be cool.

I really love this version of him - just fantastic.

Been trying to get the shape of the head just right but struggling with how the jaw would really work. - One tuff little bugger.

Lots more work to do

Hey Tweety,

He kinda reminds me of Mean Machine from Judge Dread in a way, the mech and human bits.

I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!

I just brought a new Graphics Card, ATI FirePro v4800, specifically for 3D modeling, and now Maya is unusable! The viewport wont update at all, so you can't edit your objects!

I'm getting a refund and never EVER going with ATI again!

Anyway, sorry...

Model looks good so far, fast of the blocks as usual. I haven't even had a chance to put pen to paper for my concept, though I have some ideas floating around.

Anyway, nice modeling so far. Some of his features seem a bit sharp, but it's still early days.
