Man, it still looks damn fine...makes me embarrased to post any of my stuff (which I rarely do anyway [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]). But I do get what you mean about the resolution/size thing. I dunno if you want any crits, but here they are anyway [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
-the bumpmap on the kilt-thing is great, but it looks as if you used kinda the same one on the legs...which I think doesn't really work. I don't know what metaerial you where going for, but it just doesn't look like any material which would be used for pants [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Maybe go for a leather look?
-The blade of the knife/shortsword he's holding needs some work...looks very generic and fake, and makes it stand out from the rest of the exelent work.
-I really dig the fore-arm guards...beautifully done. Same for the shoulder-armour.
-It only shows up in the large render, but the boundary between the hair and the background is screaming for some extra detail...maybe a shell of polygons tightly packed over the whole hair-geometry and alpha'd with strands of hair, just to make that boundary a bit fuzy, if you know what I'm getting at?
Anyway, it's a stunning model. Must have been fun watching the final renders popping up after you finished it [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
