Good day everyone,
I modeled the IMP to have a bit more edge in battle, I figured after so many years of players whipping up on them in FF games,
the IMP race has had some time to evolve, more tribal like, call it "Revenge of the Imps" if you will :)
I cleaned up the model and now it is seating at 3390 tris. The only thing left to model is the dagger/weapon. Does anyone have comments before I begin UV editing and texturing???

Update wire frame with tri count

You should really consider cleaning up your poly topology. It seems like you have a lot of wasted polys that you could use on different things.

Try laying out the poly's in an orderly fashion. This also helps you when rigging and uvw-ing the model.

Check out this thread about poly layout

Thanks Supervlieg-I cleaned up the ploy's and continued adding more details, started on the tunic, belt, and shoulder armor, the current tri count is at 3284. Of course I still plan on cleaning some more, after every detail add on. How does it look now???

Here is an update shot

Here is a wire shot

2 more REF pics and I had to throw in the FF1 classic Cover :) huh remember the days...........

I guess there is a refurbish version for wonderswan color.

The mesh certainly looks a lot cleaner now. The large hands and feet are quite okay but need more definition. Same goes for the legs and arms, but to a lesser extent.

You can get the poly's for this by optimizing the head. The nose and tail areas have way to much poly's for the shape they have.

Try to get an even poly distribution across your model, and add poly's where more detail is needed.

The front of the lower arms also need a bit of optimizing.

Just wanted to show what I planned for the feet area so you can understand whats going on with the feet/legs. They will have a wrap like these, but the toes/claws will be bare, showing out of end....

Im started cleaning up the body again, then I will continue on details, for hands, feet, and face....

Will have an update soon.

Alright I had a good chunk of time to work on it today, I finished cleaning the poly's, then I finished the tunic, hood, shoulder pads, feet, fingers, belt....then cleaned again :) The only thing left to model is the dagger. I like how this turned out so far; I cant wait to texture it. I took alot of shots to show this update. :)
Tell me what you think.

Wire Update

The mesh definitaly looks cleaner. And the poly topology looks much better.

I'm not really familiar with the character, but I think the best you can do now is tweak the model until the shape is better defined. Perhaps try to find more reference pictures. Perhaps you should try sketching the character to figure out the shape he should turn out to be. I usually helps me to get my ideas clearer in my head.
