love the boosters, the model looks great. Are the flames for show now or are they going to be in the final. If I remember correctly any ambient glow will be consider part of the tri count.

buzz - Yep they will be in final, all that is accounted for in the 2048 and the total tri count (which in those shots sits at 9959 (optimized some areas to add in those boosters)

I have some more little spaces in the texture I may make some vented areas or some extra little particles to help put some more atmosphere and coolness into him.

He looks like an old sci-fi robot. Anyway, he represents well the theme of this competition. Congrats on texturing.

I love it. I was thinking maybe you could add a X like spark to the muzzle flash. You know where they use a cone and map it the same way you got your muzzle flash. I believe they have that on Halo's Machine gun muzzle flash. Just and idea. Your texturing is awsome. Looks beautiful. Everything well done.

It's looking pretty good. An idea, why don't you put next to those barriers a busted car tire or something to show more clearly the scale I wish I was that close to finish, good job

Looks pretty sweet! I like the blur effect that you have done for the flames to really give the illusion of heat.

Hey, that turned out really nice. Love the textures, excellent work. Nice pedestal, all around looks good to me. Only thing I'm not liking is the outline on the renders, maybe if it were a blue it wouldn't stand out so much? Nice lighting.

Nice work, some really interesting lighting. Not a big fan of the pose though, it kinda looks like he's being thrown back by the force of his blaster cannon. I know he's just leaning back on the jetpack for support, but it's not quite reading.

Oh, and maybe soften the shadows in your render, they are a little crisp (thinking of the one on the shoulder). Great job though, everything looks great.

Thanks guys for the comments and feedback

Agent-X - Thanks, I knew I was missing something on the muzzleflash ha.

Puckducker - Thanks man, I'll look into softening the shadows a bit more. His pose is supposed to be exactly what you said, lots of recoil from the cannon, but I toned his leg back a bit to be less awkward looking for now.

So.. I tweaked the materials to mess around with, and the new ones are growing on me.. They show off the normals soo much better and are closer to the high poly w/ color breakup.

Dude this is looking filthy as hell! The new colors make reading it a lot easier, and the black makes those pieces pop more with the blue light. The Char reads completely different now, but in a good way:P
