REALLY nice models and textures, but i think that you need to cast some shadows on him, because the lightings isnt correct w/ the pic he's in.

If you showed a smaller picture I wouldnt notice that the fur looks like a stuffed animal's. Awesome though. Definitely need shadows over his face to make him more leopardy.

nice one,

the eyes however look like bitmaps...
arent they geometry?
they definately need some depth to them, like real eyes of a predator

WOW! Impressive! :buttrock:
But as already said the fur is somehow strange, too soft...

I agree with HenningK. When you look at the ground you can see shadows from the leaves and trees of the forest. But those shadows doesn't appear on your model.
Otherwise great work! (and post a smaller version. It is better
if you can see the whole image.)

I just made a quick overpaint. I think the shadows are very important.

:thumbsup: cool image, but it looks a little bit 2d

how did you make the fur?
could you also show us your wireframes?
nurbs or polygons ???

The shadows that you added to touch it up work pretty well, however, one technique for photoshop image composition I've found works well for me is adding grain to match your character up.

There are about a thousand ways to do it, but the simple fact of the matter is, your character is rendered nice and crisp-ly, and the photo just isn't as crisp.

IF you feel like making the composition working a little better, I suggest adding some extremely lightly opaque grain, which will help to blend it all together.

The model is great. Keep up the work.
