Base Male Critique Request
I've given myself a rather large project to model out all (or at least most) of the characters/creatures from a book series I'm writing. To speed up the process a tiny bit, I figured it would be a good idea to create some base models. Naturally I want the anatomy to be correct/believable. Since I'm no expert on anatomy, I was hoping to get some feedback before I start adding armor, clothing, etc. I know that for the majority of my characters that will be using this base model, most of the body will be covered; however, I'd still like to be prepared for the future just in case. Anyway, just an abstract background for this particular model is a warrior or someone who does hard physical work for a living. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

TLDR: The anatomy good?

Callouts for the head and hands, as well as the model itself in 3d, are viewable on my ArtStation page as well:…

Claptrap is a little robot from the Borderlands franchise often referred to as annoying or a mistake.
I had the Claptrap song from the Presequel stuck in my head the entire time I was working on this.

Yggdrassal's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
On top of drawing, I also enjoy writing and playing video games. I graduated SNHU with a BA in game design and minors in art history and graphic design.

I currently have rough drafts for a 5 book series completed. I need to get them edited and reworked to be the proper length. Unfortuanately, each book looks like its going to cost $1-3k to get edited. With a garbage job and no one buying anything, that might not happen for a long time. I have concept art for many characters/creatures/things/etc... from the books, but I probably won't share much of it until I can get the books published (if I get them published).

Although I am not a premium member and cannot officially ask for a critique on my work, feel free to offer advice and insight on anything.
Hey, I need moredropbox space. Anyone want to help me out by signing up?
No, but seriously. This would be a great help. I'm a worthless nobody that barely makes any money and am unwilling to spend $100 a year for pro.
