This is the first step for the head of my model. My workflow is a mix of polygon and nurbs techniques.

This is a more detail sketch of my idea. I forgot to declare that this work is a individual video. This is the right section?

Nice sketch. Shark teeth and lips makes your character really creepy.

My Vampire have a mask that partial occlude the mechanical face. In a scene of my animation my vampire remove the mask to show her face.

Good start bro! Does your vampire feed on blood? Or are you going to twist the myth a bit? Like, maybe it feeds on motor oil so people have to keep their cars away from him? :D

No, it's a assasin. It steal the blood from the victim because it must treat your inventor with healt problem. Vampire is fed on motor but i must define all the detail yet.

Fun concept. I was thinking that it would be cool if the canine teeth were hollow and sucked blood (or motor oil, heh) through tubes into that glass thing on the side of his head.

Looks good man, the only thing that weakens it is the texture as you have noticed yourself. Could you throw up a shot of the wireframe or just the mesh?

Very cool design! I agree about the textures; almost looks toonish. If that's what you are going for cool, but, I think it would be really cool photorealistic. Good luck with progess. Can't wait for more.

Great work.

nice idea to start testing the rigging at an early phase. Makes you see faults earlier. I do hope you are going to fix the knee problems.

curious to see what's next

Well, a test of a location for testing the atmosphere of my video. I'm not satisfied but it's only a first test. However i'd like the fog effect
