Armed and Dangerous - drunk with crazy!

Hi guys!

I recently stumbled across Trololo viral stuff (seems to be quite the popular thing, but has missed my screen up until recently) and ended up watching this video of Eduard Khil ... which I thought was just funny until the video hit the spot where he made that crazy awesome facial expression. That one hit me hard!
And then it was clear to me that THIS is the perfect look for my challenge entry. Basically I want to use much of that face and pose, stick some firepower to it and watch it strike fear in the hearts of those unfortunately enough to meet his eyes... after all crazy people manage to hit the hardest... at times where you just don't suspect them.

First step: scene setup and base mesh in Maya.



Next step: Mudbox base level 4. Low budget - proportions and basics. Nothing more.

I did some quick photoshopping to get an idea for the handgun.

Attributes that I wanted to stress:
1. unnecessary roughness
2. uniqueness - but based on something people know
3. power meter on full - to suggest the party is just about to start!

1. I thought would be covered by the desert eagles .50 caliber (I mean - seriously? to shoot dinosaurs or what?)
2. long barrel mod with laser aim
3. energy display on laser aim

Nice Update Man,
I agree with Ernst. Nice Job. The folds on the suit look great.
The sharp ironing fold is nice, looks a bit odd on the thighs though. maybe one or two bigger folds from the hips and crotch could break it up.
The gun looks ace as well. Keep it up
