Great design. Love this a lot.
just out of curiosity, you gonna rig and do a test animation on the big fella when you are done ?
Likely not for this one, it's pretty much a display build and something I used to learn and deal with mistakes (which I made aplenty). I'll likely be doing a few of these kind of builds and as I gain an even stronger command of the program I'll move into stuff like rigging. It's not that it's terribly vexing as I simply want to utterly command sculpting and producing works in my own signature style... so far so good.
haha i agree, just like what my old director said, 2D art improves 3D art and vice versa. They work in tandem and are a great way to learn and improve on ones work. I do that alot with Maya and occasioanl sketchup (lately only for this one) to get some of my technical designs fix.
