    Needs more shading.

    And make those lines darker :D

    Make more shading there, where one layer of steel cowers the other.

    Dentothor, how did you success in understanding skinning and triggering?
    I cant understand modellin' or triggerin'(but I really want to)

    By the way, the skin really does need more shadow, but otherwise the skin is great.
    Burning robot! lol
    5/5, for not being a CnP.

    The concept is good, but the metal parts have a need of more highlights and contrasts.

    I've found most metallic elements of a skin need to have a lot of contrast, with areas moving from pure black to pure white. If you are using Photoshop their is a function called curves that can accomplish this in no time, other than that you will have to manually add shading and highlights. But seriously, make the metal go from black to white :)

    good but not enough.
    you need more shading and higlights, and, as DVO pointed, ya could take a look at metal tutorials x3

    also.. the skin is kinda bland, you could put some green bulbs or any light, like robots have.

    Rating: 3.46/5 cool
