I tried re-designing the crossbow to look a little like something futuristic, i have seen a bit of this sort of design in manga stuff. My character will probably be a bit thinner and lankier than he is here. The world he lives in has poluted air and a lot of waste on the ground. The clothin ghe wears means that he wont : breath it, touch it or steping it. A few golden rules for th enew world.

look's like it need some more stuff, like a back bag or some gaunlets, something more, it is a bit simple...fill it with more things, but it's a good start to design

hey, thanks for the comments, i think i will add a bag on his back for arrows and take your advice and do something with a gauntlet or orer done glove. Here is the start to his face. Still work needed, but a beginning to show i'm serious about this.

I have started his top and am also fleshing out his pants pants but am having trouble with those .Its the first time i've build detailed pants, it seems that the rest of my characters have been basically naked. All comments welcome.

Heres where im up to. I hanem't had much time recently and when i have, i have been struggling with his clothes. Still not completely happy with them, but thats where you come in. I haven't added his weapon in yet, heres the start though, its a a shotgun modified to be a crossbow, havent added the string bit yet though . Also going to add belt and perhaps a water cantien. Any ideas on clothing or things to add he may need? The last pic was crap so i changed it. Here are some newer ones.

Wow, haven't posted anything for a while, but thats because its been so hard to work on it at home. but thats all cham=nged now. I just upgraded my I740 ( a sub standard video card 3 yars ago) to a radeon 8500 and thigs are now flying. can you imagine how jocw much faster things are going? My model is actually moving in the view port.

Also came to the relavation (which i you probably do) that before i start a character i should write a story that encompases all of your characters traits and details , before you start designing. For example, what they do, why they do it, do they run/cotroll sometnig, etc. Basically whats there motivation. Aslo, i try to write in there description as part of the story. As far as my remodel goes, idecided that he is a AP scavenger who searches for valuable scrap and sells it off to further to the highest bidder, a scrap mercenary if you will, i have also decided to include "After apocylipse" armour, but i can't decide what it should be. It should be scrap that is lying around that he could make armour out of, an something he could carry things in. I was thinking of an old car seat cover for carrying things, but may change this. I would appreciate everyones suggestions of what thigs could be. It would really help me furtherr my model. Thanks.

Also, my character has under gone some revision, his proportions have had some work and he is actually more humaniod looking. Shorter legs andtorso are done. Any comments would be appreciated though.
