    Nice work you have here. Looks way better than Dreadlord xD and color selection fits very well to this picture.

    You realize that means 2.5\5, right...?
    Oh well.

    The usage of UI textures here is awesome. The skull is great. As DonDustin pointed out, your wrap is not perfect in some places. I also believe you should use a different portion of the wrap for the chest, since it gets kinda repetitive with the shoulders using the same area of the texture. You should also include a real portrait, and since it doesn't seem to have a lower jaw you don't even need to make actual talking animations; Just stick in the skull mesh on, say, the skeleton portrait, then modify the wrap of the Skeleton's chest to resemble your model's and finally add some details(wings, glow in eyes) to finish it up and voila! You have a perfectly working, good looking portrait.
    You also have a ridiculously huge amount of geosets that can be merged into one. You just need to add the appropriate vertex groups and then assign them manually in Vertex Modifier. The less geosets you have, the smaller the filesize of the model will be.
    And finally, you need to reverse the vertex order on those wing details, since the normals there are fucked up; The faces are shaded in the wrong way.
    You could also, perhaps, use a few different textures in order to give this model a little bit of a color variation. Some teamcolor wouldn't hurt, especially on the chest or on the shoulderpads.
    That's all I have to say. Good work, otherwise.

    Whats the purpose of those weird looking 'wingie-things'? They look kinda odd, hanging there all by themselves.

    The model is pretty neat but I think the head should be a little bigger to be proportional to the rest of the model. I give it a 4/5

    Dude, if you like it soooo much, call it awesome and you even give the author rep, then why the hell did you give it 4/5? Oo
