I'm not sure if Mr. T has actually been in any movies, exept for the rocky 3 one. But it's a well know "actor/personality" (80'ies). Been thinking about other actors, but ended up with BA since all others have been done a trillion times or dont have any interesting characteristics to me, so that will be it. I'll be blocking him out today, and doing his head. Update soon.

Mr T Played in various movies, albiet few. He is a very charismatic stylized character who was a bit too much for most parts. Aside from a general lack of acting ability.

Filmography (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0001558/)

Good choice though. Should be easy. I don't think anyone in the world looks like him...

Mr. T passed away not too long ago.. He was hilarious. Did some really good skits on Conan 'O Brien and has written some hilarious children's books that I found at a yard sale. Looking forward to this one, don't forget to overdo the gold until it hurts your eyes. :)

Working on the torso right now. Mesh is not optimised, will de done after all is finished (alot of poly to be deleted). Polycount is around 1000 now I think.

looks great so far.
You're not going to use "photo textures" as so many other are you?
doesn't look like you're gonna need it anyway ;)

I'm not sure about the txturing, I prefer to get the most out of it trough moddeling. So texturing will be minimal. Personnaly I really dislike that photomaping. But we will see, maybe do a coop with a txture artist (dont know if thats ok with the rules).

He he it's Mr T as a 25 year old :) Looks amazing. I don't know what it just, but your model is so clean and low poly and still it looks better then most models. And you say you gonna optimize it even more. Amazinlgy good.

One little thing, perhaps you could put an extra devison in the hair. It looks a little blocky compaired to the rest of the model.

Cell shaded T. Awesome. You might wanna bling up the bling. Right now, they just look like yellow shapes. Maybe vary the colors a little, or if you have the real estate left, add geometry to suggest more texture? I'm not really sure how the cell shader effects the 2D textures, but that's another possible route.

Yeah, Mr.T isn't dead, I think he's fighting cancer.

If you look at his IMDb page it doesn't show a date of death, so you can assume he's still alive and while. I saw him on a Canadian Comedy show not to long ago - the Buzz.

We can guarentee that Mr T is not dead, at least he wasn't last time we spoke to his agent! He successfully pitied the fool that is cancer and is living safe and well in Los Angeles.

I'm sure it's the links on the bottom to blame. Those have been the reason for so many threads being brought back from the dead.
