Awesome render... looks as if viewed with 3d-glasses, if you know what I mean!

Excellent progress on this guy!

The work so far is top-notch, but I gotta agree with comments thus far that the right accessories and a good texture (make sure you put a lot of smoke around the cannon's opening!) will give 'im a little more 'zazz'. Particularly something for aiming - since I have the images stuck in my head from when he was a pirate with an eye patch (ahhhh, back in the day...from page 3), I keep imagining some sort of steam punk-ish monacle he uses to aim. That's just me though. I'm sure whatever you come up with will be interesting, well sculpted, and add tons of personality to "big ole fat bomb demon"

...

Hmmm, have you given any thought to a name for him

Thanks for the comments everyone, i will be adding some sort of accessories soon. After all the deadline is in 13 days.

Trying out the poly paint, don't know if i like it. Added lower teeth and alittle detail on the cannon.

Yep. I'm with them, that color right there is wicked. Make sure you paint the veins, and not just the ones that are reflected in the normal map, but the other ones that are close to the surface and can be seen as well, but don't actually effect the shape of the surface, the slightly sub-surface ones. They'd add nicely to the rather ghastly look of this fellow, as well as adding a complimentary[ish] color and breaking up what you've got now.

I'm not sure I'd go silver with the barrel, that seems like it would be distracting. I dark pewter might work tho if you wanted to try that. I'm,personally, liking the black, but as you have it now, its too black, bring the value up some and I think it would work.

Also, just your friendly reminder, you need either the 3DT colors, or the logo in there somewhere, I'm not seeing either at the moment [course I've been known to have not looked closely in the past]. I think you said way back when, something about the logos on the bombs but we've not seen those yet so... Embossing the 3DT logo on the barrel of the cannon wouldn't be a bad way to do it, they often were decorated.

Otherwise.......this is looking ace! Great stuff!

Hey everyone, Im hitting a roadblock...I want to add some accessories to him but i can't visualize anything that would help his character. I don't know if i should have rags or chains or armor.

What do you think?

an idea for some makeshift armor. The idea is that it is bolted into his skin. I want him to be more of a crazy mofo. So something nasty like getting bolts into your skin would be badass i thought.

This way he could have protection but still move, though his movements are limited.

Any other ideas?

I like your model very much. Though I'm not really sure about the armor. I guess this is just a test and the colour would be different?

You know, I'm kinda liking the bolted armor. Ggiven his shape, its just about the only way I can think to actually attach anything to him.

If you're looking for more crazy, you could always try some crazy piercings, either aboriginal bone-thru-nose type stuff or more tame rings/studs/bars. If you did pierce him all out, and wanted to have some fun with it, how about a mohawk? Be a nice way to get some color in there and liven things up some.

Nothing says crazy quite like a mohawked-pierced-ghastly looking dude running around bombing the be-jebus outta his enemies. Just a thought anyway.

I see veins in there now, nice work.
