For those interested in Lightwave tuts in french here's my first tutorial on creating a male head with subdivision method and using tools Drag, Dragnet, etc...

Sorry for the french, I'll translate if it's interesting people here.

Be indulgent, it's only 3 months i'm working on Lightwave7 :)

here it is :

can't say i've ever seen sphere modeling. interesting, yet it seems unneccesarily complex.

*cough*...*ahem*...

For really good responses and conversation this should have been posted in the appropriate forum. In this case: Lightwave I would surmise.

No worries, I'm sure a Mod will move it soon.

:thumbsup:

Iff you cant read it just go to www.download.com and do a search for web translator and download a free one and it will translat it for you.

or one could simply go to babelfish.altavista.com.

However, the reason not to do that is translation can be really sketchy... for a tutorial, where specific detail is sometimes needed, translation may not give what is needed.

The pictures usually just say what was written in the text.

I asked Strike if I could translate it and he said... Well I don't know if he wants to keep it a secret so I'll let him say if he wants to. :thumbsup:

But for me, it results in a base mesh that's too high poly.

I prefer the sub-d spinshift method (I believe there's a video tutorial on Newtek's site).

I get a nice, reasonably low res mesh which I can sculpt endos faster, then freeze, tweak, and go back into sub-d.

Its an interesting technique!
i know some french so i could understand
what was written.
however, the result is a very high poly mesh.
in some areas, like the back of the head there are
many polys i wouldn't use.IMO
i dunno if Strike optimize his great models
after getting the base mesh with this technique.

but I like very much Strike's final images!!!
