I like this alot. Imaginative creatures like this are always interesting. His head and torso are especially good. More consistancy in the texturing could dramatically improve the image, the head texture change is a bit drastic. Also maybe the upper legs could be a bit thinner to go with the layout of the arms. Great stuff.

great model - just needs a little polishing in the texture department. The textures are a little bit low res and seem to stretch in parts, these type of models can be a pain to texture seamlessly. I really like the exageration of limbs. If you animate it, post it up, i'd like to see it!! :D

The texture head is better than the texture of the body, I think you should improve it. I'm sure you can.
Its cloth hasn't got texture and it needs it.
There is something wrong in the feet. Maybe their shape. The texture doesn't fix very well, maybe if you use a procedural.
Anyway... It's a cool character (I like very much its chest) and I would like see the animation if it's possible.

P.S.= I like more in the viewport than in the render.... that's because the illumination. The illumination have to improve your scene... not make it... mmm.,.... bad (worse? how do you say in english :confused: )...

I'm sorry for this hard critic,... but I think that you will improve yourself a lot if someone say the "bad" things, because the good ones are easier too see.

Clean modelling.

thanks for the crit pabbloz.....I appreciate it when people tell me what to do with my models....I will see what I can do about what you said.

the animation is short...I was just testing blend shapes and the rigging....
