cool character model and enviroment.

03 March 2006, 12:36 AM
your modeling is very good.the character is not original and reminds me one ofthe bugs in "A bugs life".but he's got appeal.from your sketches I can say the most important thing is

composition.the best works can look bad if they don't have a good composition.
good luck

03 March 2006, 12:16 AM
wa ho ho Talent, nice concepts and modeling, I just looked at images, Great!

Let me guess a bug portal! For a bug on a Journey... Great concept, I look forward to more!

04 April 2006, 01:17 AM (
