an idea that might help is adding some accessroies that help the fighter pilot design. I looked at some images and they have what looks like suspenders hanging down in the back ( sorry I am sure there is a more technical term). Also having a mask hanging around his neck, but not on could be cool.

fatninja: A mask is a pretty good idea. I've been contemplating something around his neck...like a scarf. But the mask might work. We'll see if I have time to make one.

Here's the bake for the character. Still some props to be done.
I decided to be a little crazy and make this a water-tight mesh. I'm not sure why...maybe I'm a masochist or something. That face/hood area is a topological disaster zone.

I guess he's not very steampunk...oh well, maybe I can do something with props or textures to improve on that front.

Haha, water tight mesh, I'm sure that was a hassle. Looks like your bake is nice and clean.

As far as making it steampunk goes, I don't see an issue with giving him some props that suggest steam related elements, time period was left open, and not everyone in a steampunk world needs to be toting around their own steam tank.

Big ugly revolver. Loosely based on a Colt Anaconda.

I'm calling it quits. I'm going to be out of town for several days and I won't have access to my PC. So I have to submit my work now. Another day or two would have been great, but at least I finished.

Well, you might not have gotten it as finished as you'd have liked, but it looks pretty good none the less. Only thing that bugs me is the lack of pockets in his jacket, don't know why, but I really feel like there should be pockets there. Gun came out really nice.
