Hey kurt, this is looking amazing! One thing though that just doesnt work for me is that overhead painting you have on the wood. Like, the red that you have looks like it was edited in paint.. i realise thats kinda the effect you want.. but you want more of a bloodish, spraypainted look right? Anyways, i would just play around with the red, maybe add a dark and a bit lighter red and play with them together. Anyways, its looking great.. and I cant wait to see this animation!
