Palace Athene

I’m working on the gundam “Palace Athene” from Seed: destiny, so far all I have is the foot, but I hope to have the entire leg done by the end of the week.

I have finished the bottom half of the leg now http://img425.imageshack.us/img425/8821/legsidems9.th.jpg
I am working from a plastic model, so i don’t have reference pics to post, but there is a website that has a picture of it: http://www.aaaanime.com/modelkits.asp?view=item&code=10064090

almost finished the legs, I have a shot of them posed and a side/front view.
As I’m orking on it, I’m trying to keep the number of triangles down, but every now and then it seems like it is impossible not to use a triangle. Does anyone have tips on how to avoid creating triangles?

Peace Out

I have now finished the torso of the model, I’m not sure if the scale is correct with the legs.
