Concept

Concept Update: I am in the process of making a norm warlord. He is a human wearing a futuristic armored suit. Hes magical artifact is the "eye" that is his belt buckle. The eye contains the power of the "Phoenix" which in turn used its magic on this human to give him the armor suit + wings + shield + bladed weapon that he has. I'm in the process of developing the weapon and will post soon. I'm going to have a lot of questions and I hope you guys are around to answer them. PLEASE GIVE ME MORE FEEDBACK! THANKS!

Talking Concept

Here is what I've been messes with...I'm not the best artist so bare with me EagleMan
I don't quite understand how to post directly in my thread yet, so I'm putting the pics in my portfolio. If anyone could teach me how to do it, that would be awesome. Thanks!

Lets try this again. That worked. Let me know what you guys think. I still debating on things like if I want his wings to be on his arm or if I want them on his back. Sketches of his weapon will probably be up sometime this weekend. Any and all input is welcome.

Try and ignore the above sketches. I will add some new ones this week. My original idea wasn't as interesting as a lot of the other post, so I'm going to revamp it a bit and see what I come out with.

Thanks for the kind words Ferx. I plan on having some sketches up tomorrow night. I think this idea is much better than my original, but I'll like to get your input again Later!

New Concept

This is what I have been playing around with for a couple of days. I would like some input because I'm still trying to finalize this.

Not bad, but is it your sculpting basemesh or do you try to have something clean already ?

Anyway try to clean your mesh: avoid triangles, try to get the shape you want with the minimum polygons.
Avoid also the kind of 'quad that looks like a triangle' like on the shoulder. You have some on the wings too.. For the wings, pick up some references of a bird's closed wing, for now your shape is too shematic and lacks a bit of elegance...
Another point, in front view the curve of the legs is way too exagerated.

To enhance the design, you should put a bird claw only on one hand, or one bigger than the other... You should make two different shoulder pads also.

It might make a lot of crits, but keep it up !

Thanks for the crits Abrvpt. I've been waiting for someone to come yell at me and tell me whats wrong lol. This is my sculpting base mesh, but I also try to keep it clean as possible. I'm going to go through and clean up those triangles as you suggested and I liked the idea of the eagle claw on one arm, but then I'm not sure what to do with the other. Changing the shoulder pads up sounds like a good idea, I'm going back to the drawing board to see what I come up with. The wings are still a WIP. I have plenty of reference, I just wanted to post so I don't feel like I'm falling behind. Again thank you and I hope your around for my updates.
