interesting to see where you go with this; it looks kind of like a cross between a samurai and darth vader (which, of course, is awesome)
one suggestion i would have is to have some more asymmetry.

Pockets - Thanks for the comment. I noticed some similarities with Vader myself. It was purely accidental. I used mostly Samurai references. I agree, Vader is an awesome character. I guess they might have used inspiration from the Samurai to create his look too. The helmet he wears definitely looks Samurai.

Update. The concept is a little different, but it's still a WIP. I also started on the base character.

I like the samurai style face mask in the concept, and the sculpting is coing along well.

I like the concept, looking forward to see what you come up with.

Quick proportion check though, the arms seem a bit on the long side by about 6 to 8 inches. It may be that the hands are too big.

Otherwise, looks solid

AlucardAssassin - Thanks.

SnappedStrings - Thanks for the observation. I resized the arms a bit, so it should look better.

Here i've started blocking in the base character.

I kind of got a bit sidetracked with some other business, but i'm back to work on this here character.

I plan to smooth out the armored area's to look more like the concept. The legs r a little out of porportion, so i'll be changing that too.

Tekneek - Thanks for the weapon idea. I might try and fit one in if I have the time.
