I like the second pose best. Good work so far! I like what you did with version 2.

Just one thing... it's really a dark pic.. maybe your monitor displays it much brighter than mine, but I can hardly see the chain (which looks cool btw.) Is the picture supposed to be thaaat dark?

Nice work over all, but i think there are some dangers to adding that blue line separation in as texture only. it sorta looks like it's just a line painted on top or the body. I can tell you're trying to separate two types of "skin" material because they're painted diferently, but they both have the same specularity. If you make the specularity difeerent on the two surface types, It'll sell the effect better.

Also I think i liked the line looked better when it was more toned down in that first post when you first added it.

Thanks H2olt. I am working on getting everything just right and the blue line is a glow file so I can adjust as needed. For today I am trying to get to the finish line but not finish yet

Anyways here is the pedestal. It is simple nothing to write home about but all the same I think it is effective in the sense it gives three levels to stand on and with three legs and being a giant you can pretty much show off your tripod skill by standing on all three levels at the same time.

Yeah, and maybe something other than blue in the base too, maybe something more neutral and complementary to the blue and purple in the model, like a dulled down orangy brown. but keep it subtle.

And I also like how the pedestal is oddly shaped, but as is, it's going way past your model. i would thing you'd want it to be as minimal as possible, right now it's taking up as much or more of the screen as your model. try parring it down. and Ryvick is right it needs a little something besides just a flat ground. here's what i mean about making the pedestal smaller and color changed.

I know you guys want a little more on that pedestal but I would love to keep it simple. I will however change to color on it. Brown does look good and I have a purple glow for the cracks so that brings the colors all together nicely. As for scale it is the same with adding things on to it. I am not going to get carried away with this pedestal the model will stay the same but some may be cut off in places.

The pedestal is only for the presentation shot the beauty shot I will do something different. I want to have him standing in a battle field with the enemies flags tattered and such. Just a little slap in the face for the other teams

Grats on finishing

Make sure all of your images have all the correct information on them. It seems most of the sheets are missing the race of your character. Put that on all the sheets and you should be good to go.
