even though you aren't asking for opinions, I'm going to give mine anyway! as I predict everyone else who posts here will do also.
It's good quality wise, but it doesn't really feel like a morty, when I think of a morty it's more of a small kbot with one long gun for an arm, this is sort of the opposite, with a large body(in scale anyway, you know long legs, buffed etc.) and a moderate size barrel.
macio, it is not like I cannot extend the barrel later.. also fail for thinking that I would change what I am doing . The morty is not a small kbot, he is kinda a fat little kbot with one arm and a useless second arm. I removed the second arm because It was only there for aesthetics.
My concern is that it doesn't feel as stupidly unbalanced anymore.
The morty was extremely assymetrical, and that's what I loved about it. Your unit looks a lot more realistic, but has lost some of the character of the original design, I think.
Also, (and no unrelated to my earlier point) I think the barrel needs to be a bit longer, and there needs to be some geometry given over to acommodating the massive kickback of cannon at the back of the shoulder.
Also, he legs seem a bit tall, and look a bit gundamish, and less kbot-ish
Still, it's not a bad model, my criticisms lie mostly with the 'feel' of the design.
The longer barrel and the bulky asymmetrical torso are what make the morty what it is. When I initially looked at the model untextured it looked more like an arm unit, and reminded me more of a maverick with an odd arm.
Havign said that the texture is the only thing shifting it from arm to core, and I've never been fond of the yellow camo on the morty, something I wish would have the redux treatment (Oh god theres a big giant morty coming at me, oh wait its just a small lob of yellow camo its nothing to worry about GRAAAAAH BOOOM BANG eeek why didn't I recognize that giant metalic monstrosity.)
lol, I don't care what people do to the proportions after I get done but I like it as it is now.
(click for larger image) Here are a few different angles in orthographic mode. Enjoy. As I said, these proportions are staying the same. Odds are I may tweak them when I am done but at the moment They are staying this way.
