The rough sketches aren't indicative of the way he is meant to look though.
His beta model looks like ass. Final is better by a long shot.

Their struggle for existence is over for the time being. But a sin violating sanctuary isn't forgiven. This is not just an end. This is the end of a beginning.
They made good choices on what they changed for the final model. The only thing I've never really liked are his shoes though, but that's just personal preference. They just look weird to me. But I like his brown shoes in his alternate outfit with the jeans.
To make a proper comparison you have to take a snapshot from a PSX emulator, RE2 Leon is taken from Maya
This seems to be the general change made to these comparison models between 1.5 and 2:
-make slightly skinnier
-up contrast and darkness on textures by a lot
i personally don't give much about bleed amount of fat zombie as long as I could kill him anyway.... i would not even kill him just put a infinite life to myself and watch him trying to eat me... and i would watch int like 5 hours before doing anything.... -Marvin
Well, The image of the beta is from an image, on the other thread, with Leon final from RE2, and you can see all the shadows. But the beta model has no shadows. So, since he didn't have shadows, you can make a good comparison. The only thing is his face is distorted. But you can see everything else clearly.
No light applied=light system locked off entirely. I'm not sure if the same applies for OpenGL as well, but on DirectX you'd want no lights active when working on a simple test application, so it's perfectly normal for a program that definitively looks like a WIP.
As for the differences among the two models, they appear the same to me. There are minor vertex tweaks here and there, like the slightly different geometry for Leon's face and hairstyle, and the texture is a lot more refined and detailed. Still, I bet they didn't redo RE2 Leon's model but only improved upon the original design.
The model on the BH2 trial disc does not have the mini pack.

Nice comparisons. Ada's model is weird! :/ Isn't she much shorter in the Trial Edition?
The boots as well are different from 1.5's anyway.
I swear 1.5 is the devil, it's formed itself into a ISO of a game.
