Thanks Killerbee , how are you liking the fundamentals book? Any good? Anyways what I wanted to show people is the little bit of darkness around the eye that i added to give it a more evil look. I did this with UV mapping then took a snapshot and painted in PS . Nothing major, dont know if you could of done this another way, but it worked.

Talking

thanks a lot kurt! I have been playing around with the legs abit and i think its too, well i dont know.. i will work it out later. but it just doesnt seem right (the small bricks around the leg braces.) Well heres my newest image at the moment, its 8:30 pm here so i am going to take a bit of a break from this and come back and start on the arms . Once i have the arms i can put him into some cool poses (at the end). The brown is still temporary and the gold probably will change, seeings its not too realistic. It was a slight change from my original design, is this ok?

Ok, well I am running off of a router and that thing crashed last night so I couldnt keep you up to date. I also couldnt work on it too much more because I had questions that were stopping me. Here is a rough image of the golem with half of his arms . Hes going to have big hands .

Heheh, me either garry . I think he would swipe off my head, lol. Anyways, blocky hands for me are not easy to model, they dont cooperate and vertex's go alll over the place when you try to apply bend modifiers. I tried to clear it up and heres a shot of his hand, which has multiple colors on it at the moment after needing those to select faces. lol this is what has taken me almost all day. Now i will attatch it and add details on the golem until its finished for my level .

Wow, thanks a lot el_newty! Everyone on here is so nice, . Heh, I have been going all at this model seeing i have some "free time" and well... Basically i have A LOT of time on my hands, so i have tried to make my golem . Just, I have started to get pains in my neck so i have to tone down the work (from 16 hours a day to 10 ). Lol, well anyways.. thanks el_newty... also i heard romania is the place to be, friend moved from there to canada.. says its da_bomb! Hopefully i willl have a update tonight or tommorow morning of the arms attatched to the body .

Ok, heres my newest update. Both of the arms are positioned (one is attatched), and I know i still have to do tweaking to the palms of the hands, . Its time for me to hit the sack seeing its 2 here . Ok, tommorow i will be attatching the other arm, tweaking this ALOT, and possibly adding the textures.
