Thanks VinsanityV, I would love to poke around more, but my time is very limited at the moment. Any way thanks for the crit, I have tried to change the chin a bit.
For now I have declared the euipment done, next I will start working on the final low poly and try making my first normal mapping from a highpoly mesh Will put up test shots later to day.

Good luck! The first time pulling Normal Maps from high poly and putting them on low poly can be a little confusing...least, it was when I first did it

Here is the first brief test with normals. I have just used the low poly mesh from zBrush. Seems to work alright however a bit to high poly so I will work on it.

Well, not sure if you're gonna finish, but good luck bro! At the very least, it's great that you learned something about normal mapping - the whole reason I entered this year's comp was for the learning experience (I too needed to normal map a character BADLY to really learn how to do it).

Good luck!

Smile I can see the light

Worked last night and the final images are beginning to show. The texture ended up being a bit rushed, but I felt like I had to finish the contest anyway.

Vinsanity: yep I have definitely learned from my mistakes and have enjoyed the contest a lot. Hopefully I will have a bit more time next year and more experience as well.

Here are the concept and construct images.

Looks great, but you need to have the 3D Total logo on all the images. Hopefully it's not too late. Grats on finishing man.
