I saw this on cghub, looks fantastic so far - His face reminds me a lot of the actor who plays Oliver in the tv series Arrow.

Looking forward to the finished result!

It doesn't look very Mass Effect, thats the first thing that hit me. It looks very generic Sci Fi, which isn't an issue, but it was something the third game had an issue with. They seemed to move away from the nice designs they had there, and moved more into looking like everything else.

Now, that aside, this asset is rather lovely Theres a seam on his back that stuck out, but once I saw the face I was like "say wha...? Thats UDK?". The eyes are very well done, they looked real even, and the hair/stubble, I have to ask... HOW?

Great work.

The face looks amazingly real. I think that's the best face I've seen in UDK yet. I've not played mass effect 3 though. It almost makes the rest look CG, as if it's footage/CG composite. Awesome work man.

Very Impressive! I know you said mass effect but I'm kinda getting a Tron feel.

Fantastic Work regardless

you win! ....

when the contest is done can we get a break down? I love the work here but I'm more curious about the presentation Ex: shaders, post effect, fx, etc.

awesome stuff man!
only complaints i would have would be the missing knee-caps on his armor and he could have a couple more hairs on his face, but i suppose thats just my personal preference.

Holy crap that face is awesome. I agree about needing knee armor and there is something weird about the lower leg, they almost look like prosthetics. Very thin after the gastros. Maybe they are though, either way just nitpicking, awesome work.

The face looks amazing! But everything else really pales in comparison and brings the asset down. The armor is very obviously sculpted. It's blobby and there are no clean shapes.

^^^ Agree^^^

Could you post some pics without the armor on. It looks like his knees are missing-- Also, his arms look a little odd...I'm not sure if this is a reflection of the design (armor and suit)... or an anatomy problem.

Example: His biceps. The back of the suit looks very tight and I can see the triceps, but the front part looks strange-- is the suit baggy or does he have lumpy biceps?

Design wise, Tighten up the contours and shapes as stated above. The lights on the back are very wobbly as well-- sharpen these up a bit and give them a strong shape. Lastly, you might want to consider adding some type of knee guards similar to what's on the elbows.

This is really good and with a few more iterations will be amazing!
