This competition will certainly be fun to work on and learn from. Just reserving my spot for now. I'm working on some concepts at the moment, so I'll post them later. :)

Well I've been working on the concept and here's what I've got so far...

The armor around his body will be made of organic materials from the sea... like Brain coral in particular for his upper body. And there will be urchins, star fish, shells, etc. in the armor.

I'm still trying to figure out a weapon, but when I do, I'll be sure to upload it. And it will be full of destruction :)

Got the head pretty much done to my liking... I've still gotta tweak some of the edge flow but i think it's coming along decent so far.

Please feel free to leave comments and critiques. THanks.

Lookin good so far :) nice concept. I realy like the idea of fishy/reptile skin. maybe you may make a little bit longer face.

Yeah, actually that's something I may very well do... I'm working on blocking out the proportions now, and a longer face might look better so I'll def. be trying it out. Thanks for the comment :)

Kopa... Koopa... turtles... coincidence? I think not! ;) Looking pretty badass! Maybe add some manta rays floating around him? Perhaps a swordfish-head rapier? :)

Frostics: Thanks man, and yeah... turtles are pretty sweet.

blacker: lol.. yeah man, Koopa is one of my nicknames too and I certainly don't mind :) Funny that you bring that up though, cause that didn't even come to mind. And oooh... manta rays! They are pretty cool. Maybe I can figure a way to tie them into the armor or something... and i do like the swordfish head rapier idea. Hmmm... I have some work to do! :)

Thanks a lot for the suggestions.

So I've got the low-res model 90% done. I may have to cut back on some other areas to add to others. If anyone has any suggestions, please chime in as this is my first character model in a while.

Hey dudes and dudettes... sorry I haven't updated in a while, but here goes.

Finally got to work in Zbrush a bit (first time working with it, and I'm enjoying it :) )

Here is the low res character with some base normal maps finished. I've still got plenty of work to do though, so hopefully I'll be able to get a lot more done this weekend.

Any crits would be great. Thanks.
