Something about his pic has made me uneasy. I just realized it was the head, far too small. His pecs could use some mass ass well, its odd to have such large shoulders and arms with a disproportionate chest.

Your coloring and shading are quite good, reminds me of noir style.

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback, and for the criticism! For me, knowing what isn't working is more important than knowing what is working (although it's best to hear both). So...keep the comments coming!

And if for any reason you don't want to post here, you can always send me a PM. I want to create designs that resonate with all Marathon fans. So your opinion does count! And to prove it, here's an edited version of the main man with a bigger helmet (I tried resizing the entire head, but it just didn't look right). The visor itself has also undergone a slight adjustment.

It would have been nice to incorporate some of the other suggestions, but don't worry; chances are they'll wind up in a later piece.

I thought of this too. This might happen eventually, but I want to do a bit more designing before I start playing around with the designs.

Edit 1: Some more minor adjustments. (7/31/2010)
Edit 2: Pfhorums format fix. (3/16/2013)

For some reason I can't help but think of this guy being used as a player skin for God of War III. :)

And to think with images like this some people still question if your totally human in-game.

You could put a caption under those pictures: "Yeah, I'm totally NOT a cyborg."

Nice work. This is inspirational for modeling in 3d.
