Never heard of the real statue. It has my name in it :)
Well it starts to look like the statue itself, so keep modelling.
Are you going to use the same enviroment?

I'm looking forward to it

Greetz,
Peter

shaping up very well!

Face topology looks ok , but you might want to consider leaving a gap between the corner of the mouth and the strip that goes around the nose and under the chin.

Looking forward to more from this.

Maybe not, but it's still a great model :p
But try maybe to make a mor pointy nose and bring the hear more to the front.
I dont know if on the statue he has a mustash?

But really, I'm impressed.

Maybe his forehead is a little bit too bulged ?

The railing is now at 90cm and the red figure is a 180cm tall man.

The main ship is slowly taking form.. Still very rough.

Friggin´ amazing dude! I see that my level of polish is going to have to be
of a high magnitude in order to win this competition.

Worked a bit on the breastplate, greaves, sabatons and the sword belt.

I don't remember ever seeing this statue in my google searches for big statues.
I can't wait to see your work in Zbrush.... Or Mudbox..

Must be cold as *&$&A@ in Finland right about now right?

Flegeton

danbedoy: I dont have Zbrush or mudbox nor a computer that could run them decently :P

Thanks to global warming it's about +5°C here..

you might want to play a little with the perspective, it doesn't look as gigantic as it should be...
great modelling so far! keep it up!

I agree with Readme2. Nice modeling overall. Good work, but yes experiment with angles.
