long time no see man, good to see you with us.
here is an update, sorry no concept because i dont have a scanner:( but dont look at this as what the character is gonna look like because this is just blocking out. High rez mesh will be made then whole will be brought into zbrush then back to max to be baked.

i love the modeling :) really clean and nice... but the model looks like a toy worrior :P
see ya around
thanks guys, yeah i noticed the toyish look but im hoping when i bring it into zbrush it will help shape him out. scars/wrinkles/etc.
another update* getting rid of torus* around the arms (made it look like toy), enlarged the head (looks more stylish), made the biceps smaller (were too long), added angler fish headlight from helmet (could be just temporary), made his battery packs smaller on back.
update uptop ^ ^ ^
old ones here :(

To be honest, I like the beefier one on the bottom. This is a war and like someone said earlier to Default, Stylized isn't going to win this war. You should try to break away form the toy idea since no one would be scared of a toy ;)
I would suggest you go back to your old version and embrace that beefy chest he has, I would also add 1 more finger so you have the classic Disney 3 finger + Thumb setup, it just looks right compared to the 2 finger + Thumb setup you have now.

looking nice, keep it up!
thatdon - thanks for the crits but i am not trying to make it look like a toy i am trying to make it look serious but also stylized. the beefier ones arms were not correct so i had to get rid of em. But i think a reason i am getting this toy look at the moment is because of how smooth he is, and his pauldrons. i am going to give him one new pauldron on his left, its a huge ball with ball bearing sticking out of them tell lme what you guys think? any ideas i would be happy to hear em.

Sounds awesome, I can't wait for the updates mate.
heres a small update, i started working on shoes (BTW, i had to lower the divisions in model started to run slow)
Update AT TOP
Please crit NOW! because the detailing is coming in right after the legs and pelvic armor is made.
*changed the left pauldron (didnt add ball bearings on it yet), Added Gauntlets (details will be deone in Zbrush),
I am going to also Add alot more to his boots because there kinda annoying me right now.
