I couldnt get a true render for some reason maya crashes when I put a light in the scene so heres what I was able to get. Let me know what you guys think.

Off to a good start m0nicle, but there's a couple of areas that could use some work. I would make the arms a lot wider than they are right now for starters. The other thing I'd work on is the color palette of the texture. There's not a whole lot of value and saturation difference. Right now it's all relatively low in both those areas, adding some more contrast both those areas if only in a few areas on the texture will help the visual appeal.
Keep up the good work!

good start, but way to skinny. if she is a sniper, that would mean she would be a bit more muscular [to carry and hold the gun still] and probable has a military background. i would add some meat to those bones [mainly the waist]. and looks like she has a pretty long neck, might want to shorten it.

I think the waist is far too thin and I'd widen out the shoulders just a tad, unless you're going for a stylised character (and I'm judging by the textures that you're not going for an over-the-top cartoon style).

The ideal female proportions is that the waist should be around 1 head height across and the shoulders around 2 head heights across. Where just now it looks about 2/3rds and 4/3rds, respectively.

Other than that, it looks a decent start, nice work :)

I really like the textures on the armor but i think that the latex / rubbery stuff could do with a little more work, maybe more detail like creases and seams. the brow of the helmet also looks a bit odd, it seems to be caving in slightly. Dont take this the wrong way tho theres some lovely detail especially on the shin guards n feet. it'll look great with a good spec map me thinks. I'm note sure about the high saturation blue either, wouldn't a sniper want to be camoflaged.

Hope this helps :) look forward 2 updates
