    it's cool, what happened to the head? 0__o
    Is it going to be stylized sculpting or realism? I would love to give better feedback but my anatomy isn't that strong but overall its a good start and you should keep it going.

    thanks, ya its going to be kinda stylized, like bigger boots, mitts than normal, also i just havent donne the low poly head yet :) gonna do that next i think. im also going to add a bit more topo to the suit itself and fix it once i figure out the hidden faces and what not.

    looking pretty good so far, cool idea and concept and off to a really solid start on the modeling, keep it up!

    The only beef I have is with the untied laces, engineering types are typically pretty disciplined people and even if they can be a bit messy they normally wouldn't do something or leave something in a dangerous state.

    Shoe laces? Dangerous really? Yea I know, its not just the trip factor, but it can be like wearing a neck tie to work on a running car, fan belt + your neck != a good time. Or as Edna Mode in the incredible put it "no capes..."

    Plus lose stringy things can be a technical nightmare, they would probably be culled from the design within min in a studio. I like the look of the boots flared out at the top, but maybe straps instead strings? It's why old tank commanders started using straps instead of laces.

    really good point mark thanks for the tip.
    I was in construction for 4 years so i know exactly what you mean. ill have to check out some of the boots with straps, and deffinatly take another look into the boots.
    the character lives in a somewhat future sci fi world so i might try to implement a little bit of that into it.

    engineer update!
    i changed the boots so as to have more realistic approach to hoe he would wear them, i still wanted to have the top to have that silhouette so i broke a strap to have that.

    Ive added some tools,radio,more straps and some small accessories, made the head, welding mask, and basically just worked on some topology

    next thing im doing is to make the little welding unit, im debating on having a tank strapped to the side of the pack or maybe on top kinda same way as the big wrench, or built into the pack with maybe a pressure gauge on top.

    any crits are especially welcome

    This is looking pretty damn nice! Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I may have overlooked this, but will he have a welder of some sort? I think he should have a welder! :)

    @JPeppa - thanks!, i cant wait to see how it turns out either!

    as for the welder, he allready has one :) it located on the left hand side of backpack, which has the lines connecting it to the steel tank in the back pack.

    hopefully soon i can post an update on the first pass on his body!

    im aware of the inverted normals on the rag in his back pocket :) didnt have time to fix yet as im heading to class now.

    I'd love to see this guy posed, I think that's probably the biggest problem with your presentation. Also, the camera and light angle of your beauty shot feel really odd. It's pretty halfsies, which you should never go halfway on things, and the blue light is really blowing out the detail on the character's face.

    With a few minor tweaks your model should look really kick-ass!

    thanks for the thoughts der hollander!
    presentation is deffinatly my biggest weakness, but i guess thats why im posting in the wip forums hahaha. im really trying to focus on improving myself in that area.
    ya posing him is next on my list of things to do also ill tweak the blue back light on my beauty shot. and get a better angle for the shot as well.
  • walklikethis
    the main image, the single biggest one, is a little over saturated and the blue light needs be taken back a bit. like der hollander said, the wires really sell it. Also, check the head size, it seems really long. The forehead seem massive
