Kinda stuck on the legs here. I also need to expand my metallic palette before I do anything more.
Thanks to AdamAtomic for some early critique.

i think this looks ace. good start on colour selection and volumes!

my one nit pick at this stage would be the robotic nature of the legs. not the concept of robot legs but the functionality. i think its important that they are believable and look like they would/could move.

i've made 2 edits simplifying the technology in a way that illustrates my point (i hope).

i'm not saying use simple axels and joints. its doesn't need to be a technology that actually exists as long as it looks plausible (but this usually means basing it in some way on something that does exist). i hope that makes sense  :crazy:



of particular concern is the fact that the front leg appears bolted to his torso without a moveable joint - it would then only bend at the knee which unless its an unusual leg doesn't make for good movement.

This is an appropriate situation to double post, yeh? :)

Back leg is WIP.
Hehe... I'm kinda deviating a lot from the line art. !yus!

legs look mad, now, but he's kind of off balance, and anyway would lose balance really easily, so maybe could do with some big chunky feet, or something?

These mechanical bits are annoying the crap out of me. SO MUCH MORE DIFFICULT THEN ORGANICS!

I'm loving this so far, especially what you did with the nearest leg. I think the furthest one is foreshortened too much, I'm sure it was intentional, but it seems somewhat excessive. Also, it doesn't seem as if it would connect with the same area as the nearest leg does. Moving it a few pixels to the left might work.

Danny needs his arm needs work on.
hope this helps.
I understand you're following the line art but a little change here and there would hurt. Of course you don't even need to follow any references because there is no TRUE image of a T-rex only educated guesses as to what they'd look like.

My advice is that you don't really need dithering in the mouth.  There's no real texture there, nor is there a smooth transition between two like colors, so it's not required.  Also, don't forget to AA the organic part!

Oh man. We found out what was causing the internet here to break for fifteen minutes after about a minute of working!  :crazy:

Done before reading the last two posts, so no changes based on those incorporated there. Also, hehe, the arms in mine are actually a lot different from the linearts :P. Personally, I'll like 'em, but I'll try making more real ones, to see how it looks :).
For now: I'm really unsure about the end of the tail, how's it look to you guys?
