I've been looking for an online game art community that will help me grow as a character artist and that I can contribute back to. From looking through the forums here and seeing the supportive and constructive comments it feels like I'm home.
This was a high-poly model I started a year ago and never finished, after seeing the Extreme Makeover Comp I was inspired to give it another go and to make suitable for a real-time game character. I've got the tris down to 9000 from 36,000 so far and will probably keep going till I hit 6-7K. Most of the wasted polys are in the hands. Still haven't figured out the feet, I might go with horse links instead of the humanoid legs.
Please let me know what you think. I really want to work in this industry and I am not afraid of criticism... it's the only way I can improve.
