    Joining the fun, here's a quick idea.
    I think i'm gonna keep the outfit very minimal, since he's supposed to be stealth the last thing he needs is the loud sound of metal against metal alerting the enemy.

    Next Update. Yes, in the final he will have arms.

    The tabi boots were an idea that I'd been playing with for another concept I was thinking of a while ago. I see this character having to scramble up pipes and through ducts,and this kind of footwear is particularly useful for that kind of work ( ask any Japanese construction worker). Also, I'm thinking that he'll have specially-designed keypads strapped to his thighs, so that he doesn't have to lug around a keyboard. Between that, a portable CPU and the optic display on his headset, he can quickly set up an interface at any network connection on the fly.

    Obilex - Looking good, but I feel like you might not have fully read the brief. Anyways don't forget that he needs to be doing this directly inside the enemy's base, fully wired.

    Also, I have seen a couple people do this, but your headset looks like it has a wireless antenna. Gotta watch that.

    ChrisProof Looking good, maybe add more some lighter tones?

    Allstar87 Thanks, and yep, it's his stomach. Here's my sketch if you can see it more clearly: http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...7&d=1280187750

    Pixelturner Thanks, I hope it's a bit more readable now.

    Aeronic Shame you can't finish it. Looks great!

    Here's an update, not big but something still. Mainly just refining and tweaking. Changed the other "eye" also. I'll add smoke on the lower part of the image.

    nyje Pretty nice! But I think you should maybe push the hacker part of it a bit more..

    Hay guys, super stuff coming along
    Kamikazuh Your's looks dead sexy man, i think the shaved head works better than the spikes. I really like the colours theme aswell.
    ChrisProof Nice rendering in places, I'd say try working some of the background blues into the shadows. Work on the background a bit more, I didnt even notice the flaming building behind it for ages!

    Agh, dont really know what to do with mine at this stage, Ive been editing this like crazy. What do you think? Take some stuff out? More cleaning up? Stop for the love of god you're butchering it? :/

    Another take on the subject. Had an idea about a bit more of an iconic and illustrative/graphic piece and composition. Don't know which I'll finish, maybe even both.
    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    Thanks a lot Nonobot!!
    In yours, what if you took out the figures in the bg and showing their presence only with the red dots you have there?

    Yet another update....

    I think this will be my final WIP before final version. I can work this only tomorrow and then I'll be gone for a week. So I can't vote on but early congrats to whoever wins!!

    ---I have two questions as this is my first chow I'm gonna finish (and second one overall..) and don't really know what happens after this... Is this where I'm at acceptable quality for the "final burning"-thread? There reads I have to submit full sized picture in finals. Does this mean the huge file with 300 dpi and stuff? Or does it mean just these sizes we're all submitting here? I'd appreciate answers!

    I looked it in greyscale and aren't really happy for the lack of light light tones.. Need to thinks that still.

    And some fun facts: He's listening Bach on his mp3(x) (blue screen) and has a little pikatchu toy hanging from his tight armor.

    Kamikazuh: Looks cool! Concerning your resolution issue: The size of your image there is already fine for the final. If you look at other final posts, you can see what size images people submit. I like that he has a little pikatchu and digs old German music, but don't over-do it. Nobody can read his screen and the toy is too small to notice. Don't be afraid to make the toy four times as big and spend your time putting detail where it matters.
    - His hands and wrist areas could use some attention and maybe his gas mask cylinder.

    But I bet you were going to get to that anyway. Good piece!

    Thanks for info. And the little stuff I add is mostly to me, just to get to know and feel my character. But yeah, thanks! I might make the pikatchu a bit bigger then.

    started to slap some colour on my guy.
    Hes the strong silent type.
    He has a tentacle that is help in his suit that allows him to merge with most types of electronics. when he uses it the red sections glow faintly.

    Some great entries in here.
    Thanks for the crit good points.

    Kamikazuh
    Great. I like the idea with the door but it takes some attention from the figure. Can't you just have the left side of the door in the first picture, or have the door around his break in.
    InFlame
    Very nice. Perhaps you could make him darker than the background. I think that would bring forward the strong silhouette.
    Pixeltuner
    Interesting take. Looking forward to see more.
    Creedy
    Good start. old-fashioned pencils definitely has its potency.
    Fallenangel
    I like it. The holographic screen is a good focal point. Looking forward to see you render it out. Perhaps you can have something cool turning up there.
    Nonobot
    Nice take on the subject. Perhaps you can add some harder shadows on some spots for example under the left arm.
    ChrisProof
    Good Perhaps have some colour reflections from the environment. I would put the briefcase shadow in the lowest quarter of his knee-pad.
    nyje
    Nice perhaps have some highlights in his upper body.
    Obliviongrin
    Looking good. Nice perspective. Like to see it in colours.
    McGhoul
    Nice Perhaps turn the head a bit especial related to the backpack.
    Obnoxious
    Nice I would have the light on his backside in another colour.
    gtgauvin
    Turning out great. You nailing a military hacker
    Feil Magnus
    Interesting take
    LukusMaximus
    Powerful guy
    vertebra
    Good perhaps add a little more hacker approach
    Aeronik
    I love it. strong character.
    Howie
    Good start don't forget the hacker stuff.
    MasterTroglodyte
    Nice Perhaps add a computer beside the guy on the floor and some connections to her device.
    Senira
    I like the character. Looks pretty finished in design except from the feet.
    Allstar87
    Nice perhaps his left lower arm looks a bit long.
    RichLyons
    Cool Looks like his prepared for most situations.
    Sorry for not criting all.

    Thanks for the crit JanJager. I put some more detail into her shoes, but the shape of her foot is simple on purpose; I've been drawing a lot of inspiration from Stephen Silver in the past few months, and I've gotten into the habit of exaggerating the legs/paring down the feet.

    Prob wont get to finish but wanted to get some crits and get the practice in.

    RichLyons: Looks great, really digging the details on him.

    dragon4lunch:When I look at this all I can think about is darth vader.

    Kamikazuh: Wow, just wow. Lovin this.

    InFlame: Like this pose better, the arm anatomy seems a little off to me. Maybe its the bicep? Keep at 'er.

    JanJager - Sorry not sure what you mean about turning the head, I'm a little slow this morning. hehe
