is it ornamental or is supposed to be used as a weapon...if its a weapon ive always been a fan of spikes(just a few of them...make em nice and stylized: ) ) and curvy blades...something that he could stop an attack with, then counter with an attack of his own : )

humm.. looks weird, seems like the bottom of the "skirt" is stuck on the knees. Look weird.

And the shoulder pads are stuck in mid air, looks weird and unatural too.

See if you can replace the color of the leather with something lighter or darker. Right now, it looks too much like the fur of the mino.

Or maybe, its just because I am a bit drunk :-S

indeed something is not natural. maybe the color of the skirt, or maybe be the lenght. it looks like my grandmother not like a wild animal
you should let the muscles to see.

i don`t be so sure of that chicken) my gm is not a good one

the idea is : if that skirt was a ring armour, it will be ok to be like this, but is a softer material, is not made to protect so is no use to be that long, cause is not practical(i`m a girl, i know what i`m telling )
and the color of the skirt should mark out the legs not other wise. it must look like isignifiant comparing with the strenght of the legs

I agree with Sufiyaz. I think the kilt should either go all the way around, or be a loin cloth that hangs between the legs and not over the knees like it is currently.

Good work! :tup:

Thanks for all the comments guys - I can see what you are getting at - can I just show you this pic below - from the cgtalk machineflesh challenge - it has the 'skir' effect I was going for - i guess not too successfully

It will look different when the mino is in it's final pose as the legs will be slightly wider apart therefore the cloth will hang down between - I guess it is too wide tho.

Have a look at this tho and please comment (frickin awesome challenge by this airworks guy!!!!!!!!)

Thanks again for your comments - I do try and listen and take onboard

MOD EDIT: Image removed to avoid confusion.

tha`s the skirt i like. muscles are great, yumi
and about the position. is a little forced. try to stend in that position 1 minute. it will kill you, i know, i tried. i not the space between legs, is the ungle at the knee, must be larger.

is better, before you make a picture with an body, try to stend before in front of a mirror and try some position.

but the worrior looks really great!good job!

just to avoid further confusion, post links to art that is not yours rather than posting the art itself.
