The Sideshow-character-Pokey Tomas

cool,
This looks like its gonna be a fun one! My character is going to be a knife throwing freak named Pokey Tomas. Basically hes one of the guys you see at the circus throwing knives, but unlike most folk, he was born with six arms and no feet, so his manipulation skills are way above normal, but do to the lack of feet, he has been permanently attached to a unicycle. The last catch is that he likes to store his knives in his own body(stabbing them into his arms, back, calves, etc) It makes him feel closer to the weapons that are his lively hood, but leaves his body covered in scars, that mysteriously close with little time or effort.

gonna start the sketching and modeling imediatly......

unrealated/related question...do any of you guys have trouble posting hosted pics? Every time i hit the little img button and point it towards the url i get nothin on the actual thread.

Good start. I like that expressive sort of action-modeling going on here.

Whoa! I think I love it already. That's some wild modeling, man... Glad you dropped the hat - I was going to make some remark about it, but it seems you beat me to it yourself.

Just remember, it's the model that's supposed to be freaky, not necessarily the modeler
