Of Mice and Machine

Hey there guys! Been a while since I’ve posted a new WIP thread so I decided to give it a go. I have an idea for a short video and felt like posting a WIP might help me follow through with it.
A mouse is going through a rough patch in his life and befriends an exterminating robot. ( I do not want to reveal too much of story idea just in case I do end up actually finishing this. )
-Mouse - [WIP]
-Blender Internal Renderer
I am currently working on the Mouse right now. I have his basic shape roughed out I worked a little on the face and ears, but still much to do.

Obviously not everything is quite roughed out yet, but I hope I’ll be able to finish this thing in a few weeks/months.
Thanks a lot in advance for C+C.
EDIT: also… I am not sure if I want the mouse to be a more “realistic” looking mouse or cartoonish (As in mouse head/human body)

You should go for photo-realism as it is the current trend these days.
