Jove, hey mate nice to hear from you.
Environment: Yeah the environment was a bit lame – was a speed job, I matted it for atmosphere but not contrast or saturation (whoops). I will be doing another environment soon, ill see if I can concentrate on contrast.
Skull: Good advice. When I do another one ill try a smoother brush.
Poses: Yeah, I like doing these. Shadows? Now that sounds fun why didn’t I think to do that.
Radar: Yeah I agree. I’ve redrawn it (posted below). I added some bulk and a gripping system. For size I was thinking bigger than handheld, more in between tennis racket/cricket bat size. I added a bar code along the top right side for scale. I will add a few more details/changes later before attemping a full render.
