your proportions are off- check it against some real huan images to correct
not bad for a first go- wireframe?

don't rig it till you've finalised the modelling and at least uv'd it
also the T pose is going to cause stretching unless the character stands in around that position most of the time
30'- 45' off the sides is good enough for most stuff

but sort the proportions first and everything else will be easier

looking a bit stiff there. Look at some naked people (plenty of porn out there :) and you'll notice the back has a lovely curve, it's very important to capture that in order to make your models look more dynamic. Shoulders are positioned too low. The toes/feed need work.
Nice job so far though...

yea i agree bout the shoulders... odd thing is when i modelled the naked body it looked perfectly fine, however when i put the armor on it looks somewhat strange... hm.... And yea the back deff has had the least work put into it... put it's of course not done yet :)... and bout the feet... could you give some input as to what is missing/wrong?

Aight so my school began again so haven't had too much time to work further with it, i readjusted the position of the arms, made them longer- I hope you people agree that it makes it look better

Also added more curve to the back

you really need to resize your pics- not to mention forum image size specifics but it's very hard to judge scale and proportion if you have to scroll the page to see the whole thing
plus crop them too- there's a huge amount of wasted space here
crop a picture, save a tree, help the planet by not making everyone burn up electricity, hug a panda, filtch a terrier
proportions look better though

Da Vinci reckoned a perfectly proportioned human had the same height as their armspan. Check that on your model 'cos the proportions still look way off.
The cheeks, below the eyes look very flat.
The thumbtip usually has a pronounced pad/fattening at the end.
Nobody has straight toes :)
Needs a chest to waist taper and the skirt needs a little shaping.
That said, you are doing well!

Here's a quick paintover of some proportion changes

Thanks alot for your feedback :D... bout the face.. yea im having real problems making it human-like :/... i dont know what im doing wrong i've seen some of the more experienced peoples projects and they achieve an awesome shape with almost similar polyogns so meh...

and yea i guess he's a bit tall'ish :P... hmm... i'll have to look into how to shorten him a bit then wont i and try to match it up with the arm length... and about the skirt, dont worry about that :), as i explained in my original post i will be simulating the cloth' movement with a cloth modifier so andit's ment to be stiff right now

edit: oh and the toes are somewhat my last priority atm since im not certain if he'll have barefeet at the end so im waiting with that

Aah.. OK. You will get a much better result for you cloth sim if you use the garment maker to create the cloth rather than a standard editable poly mesh.
