I'm not familiar with the source material, but these aren't my favorites of your creations. They're brilliant, but the textures and shapes seem to lack the flow and cohesion that makes your other work so great. Still fantastic builds, though.
Mike - over and over, man: every time I think I've learned something, you come along and do one like this. =P On a side note I popped in (other than to DROOL profusely) to let you know my latest has a leg design I consider inspired by one of YOURS. I will of course Cred you, and hope you appreciate the spin on the concept I've done. Your work continually amazes, Sir. 5/5, and profound compliments. =)
