Hey there,
really nice entries so far - i'm looking forward to see the final submissions!

So, i'm going to make a "Vintage-Future-Carmaggedon-Race Driver" - something like that..
His name is Cipus and he's a humanoid reptile (Biped).

I've already collected some references, drawn some rough sketches and built up a BaseMesh in Maya:

Hey, another reptile humanoid!
like your idea and the basemesh looks promising.

keep gong!

I also like the mesh. And some of that reference...
Lets see more.

thanks for the comments guys!

I've been working on the upper body and I have decided to make the armor of leather instead of metal. In terms of color i think i would love to go with warm earth colours - maybe a brownish color for the leather-armor and a mixture of green-brown for the reptile-skin..
I also would like to present him in an environment, in the best case in front of his vehicle.
But now, "leg work" first! :)

nice update!

Looks cool except the three-finger-hand. Could be cool if he has a 4th underdeveloped finger, or something.

thx for your comment fantasymaster - i was a little busy with the rest of the sculpt, but the underdeveloped finger is a good point, i'll try to address that later.

I've made a little progress with the lower body and i've also laid out the UV's for all the pieces.
There's still some work to do on the details.. painting bump/normal maps as scratchmasks for Wear etc.

different views:

i think you started to add surface details too early. the basic shapes and volumes could be much more defined and sculpted out.
maybe try to invest a bit more time on the base before doing makrodetails

Nice progress. Looks a little flat in case of the silhouette, if you know what i mean. I would try to push some of the details more out.

I've made some Progress in Texturing and Shading. more to come..

I'm glad to see this come the right way.
Almost looks like that SW bounty hunter, Boshs (?)
