Hey thanks all for the kind feedback! Go check out Dave Rapoza's livestreams
@LRoy: Thanks! Glad you like the concepts too : )
@itismario: I've already started!! I'll post some progress soon...
@C86G: Haha, thanks man. Textures will be rad, I cant wait to start!
@coots7: Thanks! I'm happy you dig it. I love how Dave made Leo so battle hardened and raw. I definitely want to stay true to his vision : )
@kevlar jens: Ha thanks! Cant wait to detail the body.
@BeatKitano: What's wrong with my post title?! : D Haha, thanks for the compliments!
@duncan: I really tried to do Dave's work justice. (His is still cooler I think : )
@SnakeDoctor: I was thinking about posting some detail screens if there's more interest. Basically I used displacement for the fine detail and separate tubes for the frayed strings.
@Chimp: Cool, thanks : )
@Thegodzero: Totally agree. A lot of it looks too shiny for my taste. But then again, it was a quick BPR. Textures will help resolve those issues down the road. Thanks for the feedback!
@spectre1130: Thanks a lot.
@Miche: Cool man! Glad you like.
@jramauri: I'm on it! Promise.
@Torch: Bahaha! Love the tears of joy : )
@Callesw: Schmoly! haha
@Ravenslayer: Thanks dude
@konstruct: My plan is working! The pooping of the masses has begun...
@drunksgt: Thanks. I did not get Dave's permission so-to-speak, but I did contact him before posting anywhere basically out of respect. I think it is important to notify the original artist, especially if the artist owns the creative property you want to model. They may be cool with it, they may not be.
