wow you're pretty fast...
i like the way how the legs are done long - so animé-ish - or is it just me?
but all in all, great job!

I don't think you've taken the character too far from the original at all. In fact I love how you've taken all the aspects of the game and integrated them.

Sort of like how they gave Spider-man organic web spinners in the movies. It is an evolutionary improvement. And your character is full of them.

Brilliant.

The concept work is great (wish I could draw) and the model is coming along really nicely. I'll be keeping my eye on this thread for sure.

t1ck135: Well just because you said `high polugon` I decided to make one.
But I`m having quite bad time doing from the base mesh.

spekkio: Let say I`m kind a `otaku`, people who love anime and those kind of stuff, but only thing is I`m not 100% japanese, so my taste it is little diferent from them.

gelfie: Thanks for the comment, I feel more confident.

mtmckinley: I just hope not to disappoint your `welcome` making her too `disproportionate`, if you know what I wanna mean.

this is non-smooth version

I`m making this high poly just to use as a normal map.
But I have to be honest, I`m not sure how it`s gonna come up, this is my first time doing a model normal map, before I just had a try with sphere and other basics shapes.

this is probably going to sound like a really dumb question, but what is a normal map?.....Your model is kicking butt so far.

I changed little bit of her face.

Well I`m get the final fantasy looking character.
I got this DVD `Advent Children`and I decided to make it similar.
