This is a character for an upcoming short. You can see more of him on my website (link in the signature). Please comment! First post for critique here.

Oh yeah, this is done in Animation Master, 9.51e

He's the guy watching the dance floor, making sure the kids play nice. There's another guy outside, making sure bad kids don't come in.

You can read it if you squint really hard...

I don't think he's wearing enough flair :)

You might want to add some sort of influence object on the biceps and shoulders to help out with deformations. The pic with his arms up make the muscles to defined and non flexible.

Looks cool!

sorry about breaking the rules. I just read those, my bad.

In any case, the other images can be found on the website,

Yeah, there's a lot of deformations going on in that area, but I'm still not happy with the final result... maybe I'll come back to it, but at this point I think he's fit for an animation in NTSC resolution...

His rig is bloody mess, though. Never quite got the shoulders to deform right, too many things going on... :(

Nice going commie, id say my crit would be to try some different type of lighting. the lighting is taking away from the picture

How do you mean?

In the final movie, there'll be dancing colorful lights on the walls, from a 'disco ball' of sorts. But I wasn't planning on changing the lighting other than that. Can you explain what you mean? :)
