Legs stand out well! Are going to have lots of muscle definition?

I like the shapes of the legs they look great. One thing though, it looks like it has a giant penis attached to it's shoulders right now hehehe.

Cheers for the feedback guys. Upon reflection I decided to can the penis idea. I know this might dissapoint you all, but sometimes life just isn't fair.

Well, penis or no, I like the new head. The tenticle type things coming off it's neck are a cool touch. And I like the start on the definition of the skin.

really nice work on those chains. Could I ask how you made them? I'm having trouble making a chain that stays together properly :annoyed: and it looks like you have it down to a science.

hey zro-1,
Cheers for the comments, man do you ever go offline?



On the chains, (max 4.2) i make one link, (renderable spline) then copy that link and rotate it by about 90 degrees. Then attatch these 2 links together so that they are one object. Move the pivot point down to one end on the link. Now create a spline for the path that your chain is going to follow. Select your link and use the spacing tool to instance that link along the path, make as many instances as you need for the links to all connect. Now go through and do some tweaking of the rotations of the links so that they are not all the same.
I then link each ah... link together and make an ik chain from one end to the other so that you can tweak to position easily later if your model changes. Whack more ik chains in the middle till your heart is content.

Hope that helps,[
