This is a character design for a school project. It was suppossed to be a half machine, half creature type of deal, so I actually made the creature half animal/machine and the guy is actually linked to the creature as well, he has no lower extremeties, hes attached at the waist to the creature.
I was thinking this character would be a nomad wandering a desert scape. Maybe a former scout of some regime gone astray or lost in battle.
pretty cool idea - reminds me of a slightly less twisted version of some of those crazy Quake3/UT models - one of them was called Magdalena i think? Anyways, cool concept! IMO i think that the way you've posed your character it's very difficult to see A) that the creature is half-machine, and B) that the man is fused to it. A different pose or even just different camera angle could really help highlight those key bits of info. Great colors and shading though!
