BIg Toe: No worries. I'll be uploading a different page with the front and back together. They are so small squeezed in there together, though, so I separated them for the thread.

Great final entry. This one went under a lot of people's radar I think, but hopefully it'll get the deserved light now.

Congratulations on finishing everything up. The final product turned out great, and it definitely stands apart from the crowd.

Glad yous like it.. I'm happy I did this challenge. It was really fun. A lot of work, but I'm pretty used to that by now. Feels great to finish something outside of work, for sure.

Here's the final winning pose, beauty, and construction images I uploaded. Dedicated to all my former classmates and the staff at Gnomon. God I miss you guys!

Very cool. I think PuckDucker hit it when he said you've kinda of slid under the radar. I think your final textures turned out quite well. Definitely has a cool lookin' weapon as well.

Am I seeing faces/skulls in some of the glowing pods or am I just tired?

Anyway, well done, and best of luck in the next few days.

Yeah man, really excellent work!!
My only feedback is that a) his eyes look quite human and b) there doesn't seem to be much of a specular difference between his armor and his skin, and I'd expect to see one... other than that, this is utterly great, and I really enjoy/appreciate this. Extremely solid piece, very inspiring and a refreshing change from some of the others!

Hey Conejo...Thanks for the comments. Glad you like the project.

The humany eyes don't bother me, personally. I did them that way on purpose because I tried other eye types and the more human-like eyes were the only ones that really gave him the intelligence that I wanted. Maybe it didn't come off as well as I thought. I've been looking at this guy for so many hours, I don't know. Really need an art director at this point lol.

As for the spec, I do agree it's off. I really have been struggling with it, actually. In the beauty shots, metal ray and final gather washed out most of the spec all over. I just didn't have time to figure out how to fix it. Go me.

The winning pose shot is just a screencap of the Maya viewport, which doesn't display spec all that well, IMO. At first I had the spec down more on the flesh parts, but I thought it looked too flat and dry. So I cranked all the spec up, and extra on the skin. I think if I crank the spec up even more on the armor, I'll be in business. But a little late now.

Also, I'm presently learning how to get this guy into Unreal, so I don't know if I'm going to bother screwing around with the Maya viewport anymore anyway.

Sorry this is so long. I do appreciate the comments.

Your in with a real shot at a top position, craft wise its impeccable, I think itll come down to what is the current trend if you see what I mean.

Excellent work and goodluck.
