There's something very off about the proportions on the hippo. To me, it looks more like a pig than a hippo.

Try grabbing some more reference photos. Just from memory, I would think that the legs need to be more defined because hippos are very heavy and their legs need to support that weight. Also the belly is very... je ne sais quoi. I'd say that it needs to bulge more to make the hippo look heavier. But, since I haven't researched reference images, I could be way off.

Also, I think the metal shader on the screwdriver is way too bright for environment. The model is sooo good by itself. I think the shader is really distracting from the model.

Still, this is some nice modeling. Keep it up.

The screwdriver is very nicely done. I applaud you for trying something organic. The porportions are alittle off but you are the first I've seen try a hippo.

Its definetly a lot harder than something mechanical. Good job so far.

I love all your models except that of the hippo... still too blocky for an organic model... other than that great details man..
