Just a fictional beetle I made up, while I was bored at work. Apparently, the body needs work. Any one have any tips as to what should be changed to fit it's head?

(awaits the inevitable Jalonso comment)

Whats the thing at the top of the head?

That is awesome! Your details and shading are wonderful! It reminds me of the bugs you have to fight in World of Warcraft. Keke.

Ooh, shiney!

I agree with setzer, at this angle, the two legs behind should be seen.

Faving the bronze beetle, heh.

Fool, I believe it can pull the head inside like a turtle :)

I don't know what exactly isn't right with him. It looks like a lot of effort but something makes him unfinished. I can't say exactly what is that but that's what I feel.

Edit: Sorry for useless comment :)

Man, that awesome=)
Body seeams a bit  weak in design - it's leaves his head unprotected sort of. Unless he has no enemies in his world (yeah, right..=)
Great work!=)

Looks unnatural, unorganic at a horrible color. I like that.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/26/2007 04:47
Awesome color choices and just the right size. Other than the head has a rhino look, it looks like a real beetle. My only crit is the green areas, especially where the head meets the body. Seems disconnected there. Could be my kick-ass perfectly calibrated monitor tho :p

@Setz, bugs = 6 legs - spiders = 8 legs

LOLZ! I thought I was the only one that makes his pixels in 'spare time' at work. :D
The image is great. Only the green patches on the back and in the dark areas kinda seem to jump forward, they don't really add to the 'there-ness' of the piece.

god the yellow is so brilliant and i love the varying textures.  Now put it in a mockup ;D

Sorry jal, this could SO kick your ass.

The main thing that really bothers me about this is the single color ramp paired with how busy this is, makes some parts hard to read. Each section on its own is really nice to look at, but together it all either blends together or just doesn't click for me, a little variance on colors for certain body parts could help that. Also his head seems like its floating there.

Oh, and he's missing 2 legs.
