This is a character for a realtime(UT2003) movie I'm workin on.
It's ~2400 tris. Sorry about the damn watermark but I'm using Maya Ple for this.

C & C are very appreciated.

maybe add a drawstring or some details to the leg wrap. right now it looks like he's just got poofy legs. add some folds or something

Use a printscreen of your viewport to avoid the ple watermark...

can't render, but at least you can post realtime...

Dargon, it is a printscreen of my viewport. The watermark appears in the viewport when shading is on. At least this is the case with version 4.5.

I've started working out the texture on the face and upperbody.
I'm using a 512x512 for face and a 1024x1024 for the body.

I want some C & C on this, thanks.

I've started rigging the character and tried out some poses. What do you think?

I have to admit, I wasn't really liking the early pics, but these latest posed ones are fantastic. The poses are really dynamic, and the facial expressions are great. Nice rigging job. :thumbsup:


Actually, the pose near the bottom of the second pic, where he's raising his sword straight up, the arms and pecs look a little fubar'd. That's all I can see, though, as far as problem areas.

Thanks for your comments LoTekK.

Yes, It get's a bit twisted in those extreme poses. Think I wisted the shoulders and arm little more than what's realy possible, just so I did'nt had to twist the hands to much. I should have added a extra joint in the forearm so it would twist better, but that's for next time. Always learning something new.... the hard way :)

Perhaps a bit more contrast in the texture map?
