Tough choice. All three work very well actually. I would probablly go with the bottom one. It incorporates all of the colors, but isn't overly busy.

I like the rune, that should look pretty cool in the end. I'm also liking the clothing, the biits in between the trim, but the trim needs something more yet, black's not quite working on there. I'm thinking the spec may still be a bit too high on the skin yet.

I agree. Specularity might be setup too high.
I like the robes... the textile-texture looks pretty good!
The armor things on the arms look kind of strange to me. They seem to flow on his skin and I don't really like the intensity of the colour.
Altogether well done. I'm sure it'll look great in the end. Keep it up.

Feel like you're talking to yourself? Dude- you're blazin' here! I only check on other people during the weekend, and since last time I checked on you, you're practically done Whaddya expect?

Anyway, progress is looking great. I like the color choices, the de-saturated blues and oranges look great (and look great TOGETHER). Meanwhile, your texturing skill is very painterly - I like it. Though I DO think the trim needs more work; have you considered looking at reference for trim on armour?** Even just hitting it with ...uh, what're they called?...Burn and Dodge in photoshop! - Adding a highlight and shadow to it would help it pop a lot more. Heck, you may even wanna play with the design overall; it looks okay as is, but is very rigid.

The horns might be able to do with a little more texture as well; the look a little mushy from the front.

Also, you said you're working on accessories, so I'm not even sure I should mention this; the gauntlet-ish thing doesn't have a strap. So it's not connecting to the arm in anyway. Not a biggie - you'll probably paint it on the arm anyway. Just pointing it out.

Overall though, awesome design! It's looking really cool; keep it up!

EDIT: **Hmmmmm....finding reference for trim on cloth isn't as easy as I thought. My mind was almost blank, so that never helps. Still, what about patterns more along the lines of something like this?



I always look for video games for reference, and while I realize that tons of fantasy games must have good reference, I somehow only thought about N3: Ninety Nine Nights. Still, I say take a look at some reference and try tackling that trim again!

Thanks Vinsanity, I think thats what I needed. Thank you to all who have helped me so much with this (Vis, JUST, SR, Warlock) to name a few. I have uploaded a turntable of my latest progress to my website. It showcases the fire particles I have made for the pedestal along with some basic lighting and the beginnings of the pedsetal map. (although no where near finished). Feel free to check it out at:

Looking good man. I love the fire effect you have going. It also looks like the pedestal is above water with the lighting effect you have going on underneath. Not sure if that is what you had planned, but it looks pretty cool.

Like the others have said, I think the spec on the body is a bit high, especially in his ab region. Not sure if you've done a spec map or not, and are just using spec level of the material itself. I also think what's missing from the cloth is some type of spec. Right now it is very flat compared to everything else. So up the spec on that, and lower the spec on his body and it's aces
