Modeling is "done," but crits on composition and especially lighting would be appreciated.

My WIP thread ended up being my thread about "What is the best way to get a sculpt into max for rendering?."

I would make the surroundings a bit more dirty (cones mostly, they look brand new), and what about making the letters painted on the road, like traffic signs/messages etc. are painted on the road sometimes if you know what I mean.
Would be cool me thinks.
I have no clue what the round theme is though so maybe i'm saying something that's against it. Gonna read it now if I can find it.

To be honest I dont think it represents mole that much, the face is more like a beaver or something. just sayin...

It's supposed to be a naked mole rat, if that helps.

No comments on the lighting?

Looks like low poly game art, not a movie poster.

Too much specular on the traffic cones.
Man hole too low poly - can see angles.
Ground weird - is that supposed to be a tarmac road ?
Like the type & manhole cover as an 0. Really neat idea.
Mole needs work. Claws need detail. Fur needs depth.
Manhole & manhole cover texture needs work & bump/specular maps.

Maybe add rain, streetlights, puddles with reflections to add detail / interest to the scene.
Perhaps a sidewalk, shop front, parked car, etc.

Good start. (and no, I couldn't do better or even get close)

Very nice..

Two things that stand out to me however are the faceting on the man hole and the light (should be dark) coming from within the hole.

Like the composition but it would look better in portrait with a dark area of road at the bottom to contrast the small-print.

Very cool though, especially the moles face. :)

What about some red light coming up from inside the manhole? I think that would give some more definition to his forms as well. And get a proper alpha for those letters; those are looking really bad right now.
