or mabey you are trying to make a weird looking character, in that case good job :scream:

Its like a train wreck, I can't look away. I am appalled and mesmerized by it at the same time. A few things I noticed that might help.

1) He looks like an EX-Fat man who lost all the fat but the loose skin remains.
2) Fat people tend to "bloat" rather get saggy.

So if he is meant to be someone with a lot of extra skin, you hit it right on the money. If you where going for fat I think you missed the mark a bit and might need to look up some reference. I made this to show you a generalization/characterization of what the "fat" body type looks like.

yes i want that flapping skin! I earlier consider the big stable belly but
i think this character seams to have more history to tell about himself
and his greedy guts.
thanks for the reference picture (and excuse for my bad english)
