Thanks very much SR. The spec has since been fixed for the body thanks to some tutorage from the great Warlock but I will look into the cloth. I think I lowered it thinking its more like heavy denim, but it should still have some. As for the pedestal I am going to have a glowing ring shaped rune beneath it so thats where some of the light will be comming from. Thanks for the input!

Cheers~

Thanks for your suggestion polysmooth, and many congrats on your golden eye award! Well deserved! If anyone could help me figure out how to build an occlusion pass in max (as it will be my first time doing so) I would be greatly appreciative.

Cheers~

OK so I got the AO pass figured out, more on that in a bit. Here is the latest with the pedestal. C&C are most welcome:

For now I'm off to get some rigging done. See you all later.

I HATE skinning. I mean hate as in with the passion of a million burning suns. But luckily most of that god awful experience is over. I have set up my final pose and spent about an hour yesterday rendering this turn around:

Hope you guys enjoy it. C&C are welcome as I only have the weekend to make final tweaks.

Cheers~

Hahahaha - I feel you man! I hate everything except modeling at some time or another (Unwrapping and texturing can get to me unless I'm listening to some tunes), but skinning is something I super hate as well. And I still gotta start THAT, personally! Good to find a kindred spirit here

That pedestal of yours is very, very cool looking. It should fit with your character very nicely, so I can't wait to see 'em together. It looks a little blurry right now, but no one will likely notice when your character is on it. Not to mention that if it were too sharp, it would clash a bit with the painterly style established for your guy. MAYBE - maybe - you could hit that texture with an artistic filter in Photoshop and see if anything gels better. However, I don't think it's necessary - plus, it's really hard to call until you put your character in the scene.

Which btw, when finished is gonna look really good Can't wait!

Nice work there, Novian! He looks super badass in that first pose - I can almost hear maniacal laughter as he gets ready to rain down fireballs upon the viewer (the looking up angle really helps that one!). The other poses are more subdued definitely, but it's more of a quiet rage being shown off here - he can kill you, he's just gettin' ready to strike Overally, I like the poses - they definitely work well with the character, and the overall compositions are very, very clean. Once more, nice work man!
