Wow, that was a great response... Big Toe, Monte and Mel and I think that's what my vague idea resembled in the beginning. I guess I'm feeling like ripping Pandora or ripping Froud is just not what I had in mind, and I hoped all along that it would inspire a new path but it hasn't yet. I really value all these opinions and I usually read each one twice after its posted to let even the smallest detail or suggestion sink in.

I love MGS, it's one of my favorite series (especiall 3 and now 4) and would love to approach it with this mindset. Thank you, I need to go back to the sketching board maybe not necessarily idea board :O

You're welcome. And this last sentence. Definitely follow that thought... The first pandora image made me think: "wow". So don't f*** with her too much, only refine.

Did you ever get my Skype invite btw?

Yup, for what its worth I think you have a great look, and idea there. Odd enough to blend with the crowd and normal enough to stand out amongst the elite, go with stylized birds, one for anyone that might come along, and keep the box tantalizing, just a glimmer of gold , you never know when you might need a miracle...

Man I know you've been a little bummed about ripping other people, but whatever.....the work you do is fantastic. The concepts have so much life and I love the style don't change it imo.

hehe, this concept is so different, and so freaky. I think you can pull it off in 3d aswell, since the birds are kind of small. It's gonna be fun to see the transition!

BACK AND FORTH WE GO!

I'm going with my guy because the pandora idea is better suited for 2d and I originally had prepared this guy for 3d. I'm moving on finally.

Clericon Angel it is, and yes I'll build the cherub too.

Well, guess it's better to have too much choice than too little! I think you need to flex them 3D muscles of yours. You're obviously staining at the leash!

Yeah, I think this is the better choice. He's got a bit more personality and character to him I think, which will make him a more dynamic character.

Very much looking forward to seeing the mesh.

Some people were wanting me to post something, so against my judgement here's some sloppy renders of my WIP meshes! (sorry I'm not taking the time to really make some detailed renders)

They're around 8500 or so, so lots of optimizing to go because I want to make tons and tons of feathers and hair strands to really sell those areas. The knives on his legs are actually modelled out so I could lose those polys as well. The wings, second pair of arms and heads aren't finished by any means, but I feel pretty good about the rest. I texture faster and better than I model (imo) so I'm spending a lot of time trying to get these up to par.
