I beefed up that arm a tiny bit as I think, given the perspective, it did look too thin. Thanks for pointing that out.

It's a tiny update as far as new parts added, but it's starting to get a better overall feel I believe.

Also, I am done with classes for the summer! Woo!

Could you supply versions without background?
It is great to see full body portraits.
These fellows look really dark.

So basically I'm none-too-happy about how this one was going. I'm attempting to make some changes and smooth some parts out, but I'm considering scrapping it and starting anew with a fresh design. Here's the alterations I began to make so far. We'll see how they pan out, but if I must restart than so be it.

Right, so I did end up getting too annoyed with my previous technique. It was just too cartoony for what I was going for and I took it upon myself to learn a better way of doing things. As such, I started a new project in which to test out my new found techniques. I think it's look much, MUCH better than what I have been doing.

Mostly so I have a record of progress, here's an update. I think the face may still need to be sharpened up a bit, but otherwise everything is turning out really well I believe.

Certainly a big improvement over the last one!

I thought the last one started out really promising and creepy looking but somewhere between the earlier versions and when you added legs it lost a bit of that feeling for me. Still excellent work though, as always.

Can't wait to see how the new one turns out!

Another update. Still trying to decide if I like the armor design around the mid section. Thinking I may want to put more there.

So I didn't like how the metal was turning out on that last one, so I'm trying yet another new approach.

Edit: Back by popular demand, golden root pattern.

I personally preferred the first one. I really liked the golden root design on the right side of the chest, which you seem to have removed from the latest version

Think I've learned what I can from this one. Moving on.
