I think that this gladiator is great, very lifelike and very nice animations.
The dull color adds for some more realism and allows for the armor to be more of a feature than it was.

Thank you! and I love how you make the skin color! Yours is certainly a lot better
I will try to put it in soon :)

I don't understand the change from baggy hip pants in the sketch to super-muscular legs in the end result. I enjoy the animation with the hip pivot for the sword thrust a lot, but did this guy really need superthighs?

Glad you like it! 

I guess my sketch wasn't clear enough, so here is the story:
The idea was to do some "super hero" kinda guy with realistic gladiator equipments
and with some over-the-board action. So I looked at 300(movie) for reference
I even made a few varieties

Then I feel the costume wasn't too right, so I went on doing research for equipments
and types of gladiator, and some documentary suggest their leg muscles are highly developed.
I guess that is where the super thigh original came from :)

I am not very good with anatomy, especially when the muscles are moving. Exposing the
thigh is also partially because id like to practise animating muscles. Please C&C

BTW, your blog looks awesome

Here's my pallete.....
EDIT: and I would replace simaler looking tones, etc.

I added your palette, while it certainly look nice
i feel it clash too much with the gold color on the armor.
what do you think?

Looks nice, but some of the shortcuts you're using in the animation are hurting the overall effect. Like moving the upper legs up and down without changing the lower legs ( on the idle animation ).

Great point, I didn't even notice it.   It was awful around the knees  :'(

I think it's pretty cool. However, the animation should be sped up a little a lot, JUST when he is in the motion of stabbing. Also the colors on his skin could be changed, but that's just me.

I'd speed-up at the end, right now, Im kinda enjoy the 'slow-motion'.  I'm really interested at what skin palette everybody uses, let me know :)
