haha no, unfortunately not, although i did get a phone call once offering me a job regarding short term character work at Aardman studios, but it was too far away and i didn't know Maya

yeah, Maya is going all the way these days, so I hear...

I don't know Maya at all, I know a bit Blender, a bit more of some DAZ apps, and getting to know more C4D which is enough for my hobby

you sure make a hell of a big entry with your skill so I'm not surprised that THEY call YOU

keep it up m8

    Coming along nicely!  Couple things I noticed that might help:

    1) There is something about his upper arm that doesn't feel right.  First of all it's the size of a body builder's bicep, but lacks definition.  But more importantly if this is supposed to be a very young man, that sort of breaks the illusion.

    2)  His left eyebrow looks too high based on the mesh.  I think you either need to push the mesh up higher or bring the brow hair lower (or both).

    His left brow is the original height , the right one along with the eyelid has been lowered slightly , just to give slight expression  as I'm not sure on the final one yet, arms I didn't want to add any sort of definition there as I don't want to go too detailed with the anatomy, and also didn't want to portray him as overly muscular but I wanted them to be over sized to contrast the size of the legs and give him more of a strong warrior type image, i don't think they're so big to the point they don't fit with the character, if you compare the the upper arm to the size of the hands and forearms, they're not really proportionally much bigger than a normal arm, although i chose to give him a longer forearm and shorter upper arm, so maybe thats whats sticking out for you visually (larger upper arm, spread over a smaller amount of space)  the whole arm is just generally larger than you'd expect, but that's mainly due to the style of the character and the proportions i chose to go with.

    Looking at the eyebrows again, I think I see what you mean.  It's hard to tell just from a still.  Obviously it's super subjective at this point!  :D  You're putting a lot of thought into this and it's paying off.  

    On a side note, I liked the mo-hawk if you're considering bringing it back.  Might be cool to do shaved designs on the sides of his head too.
