Sonic custom model - would like feedback
#1
So in my opinion, my original model was utter crap and it was pretty unanimous that I should update it.

Finally getting around to it over a year later, here's work in progress on a new model I started a few weeks ago. My focus on modeling this time around was making everything as quad-friendly as I could. The modeling for the head, body, shoes, and all textures and materials were made from scratch. Socks and gloves were just moved from the generations model and edited to be 100% quad friendly. They'll probably be replaced by my own modeling in the end though. Body and skin materials are still untextured.

So for now, I'm looking mainly for feedback on the modeling aspect, but anything else can be said. Be as nice or brutal as you want, but any feedback or suggestions that'd help in the end will be most appreciated. 

Some questions if you don't know what to look for:
In general, does it look weird, and do you have any idea what exactly seems weird? 
Is his face too short, long, narrow, wide, etc? 
Would you prefer a side or a center mouth? 
Are the shoes and hands a good size? 
Is his body too lanky? 
Do you like or hate the seams on the gloves and socks?
Are his arms and legs too short/long? 
Are the colors a good choice? 

Fire away!

This looks pretty good! Not often does very high-poly stuff show up here!

Overall I think you did a great job!

As for some tips:
  • Something about the face looks a little off for some reason, I can't put my finger on it however
  • If you are going for a modern sonic design his spines droop down a little farther. I kinda like them the way they are though so it's up to preference. (I more prefer Classic Sonic so that's probably why I like the shorter spines, however you do what you think looks best!)
  • I always prefer a side mouth over a center mouth but it looks okay in this instance so it's all up to your preference.
  • I like the seams on the gloves & socks keep them!
  • The arms seem a tiny bit too short
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the response - was afraid the face may look off but also can't put my finger on it lol. I'll play with the arms and quills in the meantime though
