Bad textures? that's all the more reason to see it through!

I probably textured 50 characters really badly before I finally grasped texturing lol, and I still need work. Practice makes perfect, so they say.

Don't worry, if you place concept art under your forum, the criticism fairy will pay you a visit :-P

I think a fly god could work... think of it as a boss in a game rather than a god...
I think you would need to figure out a more badass design since this looks like an average monster rather than a mean boss monster.

I would recommend trying to get away from a "humanoid" buggy creature though. if a creature looks too human, it can look unoriginal..

as for technical stuff, you are going into detailing before you have the basic shape/anatomy down. you need to get as much shape out of each level of subdividing as you can.... also use referance... learning human anatomy will contribute to any character you ever make... animals typicaly have very similar anatom to humans, so it really applies to every character/creature.

your details look pretty good, but it looks like you rushed into the detail phase without developing the overall shape and form of the character.

Fly guy looks kinda interesting. I'd say keep experimenting with zspheres though, looks like you were making good progress!
