Atnas: I used to think that not eating oil paint would be an easy thing to do... sometimes the urge is hard to control.
I don't know if it's part of the design, but your creature is extremely bulbous. I think the rendering style could be put to good use though. ( not that it isn't there, but the bulbous quality is a bit distracting, simplify shapes a bit more ?)

I see exactly what you mean, thanks! I wasn't sure if he was too bulbous, but looking at it again with fresh eyes, the little fellow was bursting out of his skin.

little less bulbous

visual priority is really something I need to spend time learning, though.

There you go, now those shapes of color look a bit more like they are actually describing something. Also an improvement in describing the light source- much clearer now. That eye looks pretty bright, maybe use that to light up a bit of the face thats closest towards it?

Whoa.

I'd love to be able to see the individual emblems on the outside of the ring better, but as is it has this nice 'aged' look.

Interesting you should post that, Ben. I've just been fighting with the thing for the past couple of days. I absolutely loathe the interface, especially the 2.5D crap and the bloody stupid "hold alt, left click, let go of alt, move mouse" thing for doing ZBrush's equivalent of zooming--which is actually scaling the object you're working on. Maybe old-school modeling techniques are too ingrained in me but it put me off this new-age ultra-high poly sculpting stuff and I still like dealing with verts, edges and faces. Trying out Mudbox right now though and it's starting to convince me perhaps there's something to it, interface is a heckalot easier to use, that's for sure.
