    I decided to do one more MEOW. I've finally gotten some good practice and I think I'm up to the challenge of making my ultimate MEOW. I'm going to make the fur more mangled later. I've never done fur before, so I wanted to see if I could accomplish something with it before destroying the edges of the armour.

    Edit: In the unwrap screenshot I have one of the geosets hidden, so excuse me for the unreasonable ugliness.

    That's a really early WIP of the helmet, there will be more plate covering the face later, so it will blend better.

    Edit: I've done some colour overlay, as suggested by Archian, and played around with the helmet a bit.

    hum you should remake the nose... cause the way you represent it.. there's no hole to let him breath.... so maybe remove a little part to show us the skin .. or make 2 holes .. i don't know...

    oh and i recomande you to hide abit more his skin on the arms.. cause it looks like hes wearing a T-shirt.. if not..

    I know about the T-Shirt thing, I'm going to deal with that later. And if I add holes to the nose it will look ridiculous.

    You should make a MEOW-Undead series, where they are like cyborg zombies where their mechanical parts are rusty and damaged. That would look sick.

    I can easily remove it, but I want other people's opinions too.

    It's goggle. Not google. And your skins are always very clean, and I like this whole little MEOW series.

    I'll just make his jaw/mouth organic.

    *UPDATE* - I was having troubles with the wrap so I put the UV on a separate layer over top my texture. I've worked on the face and arms a bit too, I hope you like it.

    Although I think the fur could do with some more highlights, and is still a bit messy, the armour and face are very smooth and nice.

    LAYERS!

    anyway, i seriously seriously dislike the playful plastic cartoony feel. It is the same thing camel hump did and his biggest downfall as a skinner.
    It does not look good(IMO).

    One should always strive to make materials look as they would in the real world or replicate the lighting atleast.

    right now im guessing(hoping) you have only created the outline and shape before going in and defining light and texture.

    Also i do not like the color choice... bright orange i hope my not reading the thread made me miss something about that not being the final color.
