wow, that is kind of nice.

just not so sure of your story line, but dun get me wrong, i just think the design doesn't show much characteristic of the character. if is evil or wise or ... u name it.

or even give give the feeling of the animation of urs. like sometime ppl can tell wether if the story is going to be fun or serious by just looking at the character it self. like all the pixar film and final fantasy...

but overall i like the details. would you mind posting the wire frame shot of this?:)

keep it up man:)

Thanks for the comments, as for the character he is suppost to be a camp (gay) robot. I think this will be more displayed when he is textured and animated. I think at the moment the only thing he has going is the big hair :P

The concept was actually created by the author of the short, the script of which can be found on page 2 of the thread i mentioned in the first post.

But i'm glad you like him, and i hope he does look more his characters persona when he is animated.

Feel free to give any more crits, There are probably lots of wee things going wrong but i just can't see them any more becausei have been looking at him for too long.

Thanks in advance

my first thought was "man that's ghey". i guess you must be doing a good job then.

nice modeling.

the final rendered looks real g*y. :) nice one buddy.

maybe is your style, but if this is a fun short i will deform it even more. like have a very small waist and longer lime or something. just me. i like to exegerate things and deform them when i want to make it more fun.

i like the costume(or parts?) design? or maybe make it even more shakespear??

hahahaa am I talking too much?

over all, is good. con't wait to see the texture one

Looks great to me. All he is missing is a lil' curley cue like elvis in the front. Nice tiny details from here.

Keep up the great work.

Hey guys,

thanks again for the comments, and if he is looking gay then i guess that is half the battle. I think i am pretty happy with him and from what i can see form most people they are happy too.

So i am going to begin texturing him, not sure what way to go with this and my texturing skills leave a lot to be desired. I was thinking of a red leather type of thing for the boots, then shiny colourful plastic for the main parts of the body. He is suppost to be very colourful, that is about as much as i am given. So if you have any ideas then feel free to post em :) also if you know where i can get a tut on a leather texture i would also be happy.

Cheers folks
