3D Character Development

From concept to finished model. That’s the goal.
I have worked on this model intermittently. Its at a stage where I can say I am satisfied with the way this character turned out. I thought of coming back and making some more changes, but I don’t think that is happening soon. So ,here is a set of snapshots and video links that demonstrate the development of this character.
