    Wow man - those textures are looking really great so far... keep it up! My vote is for Pose B... altho E would be cool too if you could figure out a way to make it practical for the 3D print...

    Hey SolidSnakexxx, I am not very exited about that pose. It seems like it would hide so much of the cool detail you put into his torso. I think a lot of different poses could be really cool with this guy, but it would be a bummer to not see all your hard work in the render.

    I dunno man - i didnt think B was necessarily a defeated pose... per say...
    When i first saw it - i thought of a kinda lurking pose... like maybe if it was dramatically lit - of him coming out of the shadows - it's like he's stalking his prey... u know?

    But still - either way - this model is comin out awesome! I hope i still have a chance.... haha

    Default Poly Painting on Flat Shade

    chindian:
    Good thinking..I didn't think of that aspect before...Thank you for your constructive comment

    snoopalu:
    Thank you man. Glad you like my little bug man.

    Small Daily Update:
    There was a request for me to show the poly paint at no material applied stage. So here it is. I'm certain this will change quite lot when it's completed...As you can see for now his colorization's very rough ...mainly to block out main colors.

    Comparison View Flat/Shaded:

    You know, when I was a kid, every summer I would go to the sea side and spend almost all my vacations observing Mantis Religiosa bugs. Amazing creature. Can you please tell me how much time did you spent on polypainting? Also, about retopology. I think I saw some text about 3DCoat at your blog. Is that the tool you have used to fix the mesh? Thanks.

    SolidSnakexxx,

    He belongs in a wax museum.

    And, with any luck, this project will find it's way to DVD or book form eventually. Without a doubt, one of the most epic and entertaining entries I've seen.

    You're pro.
