RaymondSalter,

Thank you for starting your Anatomy Thread here. :) While you may have done so only due to my request on the 50 Portraits Thread, it would be great if you could tell us a bit about yourself, your art training and background.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work! :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Wow I always think it is very impressing how good you 3D guys can "copy" 2D heads with their direction and facials expression. Good work! Keep it up! Oh well and... WELCOME :D

Hi Rebeccak thank you for your interest in my efforts well I come from a small town in the Unitedkindom called Calne and worked all my life in the construction industry my main interests are playing bass for the local band and 3d modelling I started playing around with modelling back in the Amiga days before moving on to a PC and Cinema my best image up to day was published in 3DWorld about 18 mouths ago of a cricket but today I have a pretty big smile on my face having played a small part in the making of a short film called Pitching Lucas by Shane Felix and modelling a speeder and carbonate block for the film which last night won two of the top awards at the Comic Com Awards at http://www.starwars.com/community/event/con/f20060718/indexp3.html (http://www.starwars.com/community/event/con/f20060718/indexp3.html) well thatís my best points but my painting side is pretty poor hope to improve it one day cheer.

RaymondSalter,

Nice to see more of your work! Do you have ortho shots of this character without the clothes? Also, do you plan to work on this further? :)

Cheers,

Hi i am afraid i modelled this one with only the clothes and no underling body i modelled him in this pose mainly because its easer to add bones and helps with the deformations around the shoulders if anamated i also forgot say earlier that my main pasion for modelling is nateral history subjects i love birds cheers.

Ray,

How gorgeous! :) What sparks the natural history interest do you suppose? Have you ever modeled any skeletons or the like or birds / mammals / humans?

A really good reference data base is here:

ANATOMY MUSEUM LONDON + Searchable Anatomy Database - very good (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=355993)

Additionally a lot of great reference can be found here:

Ray,

It's great to see the variety of work that you've done! :) One suggestion I would have is to try some traditional / digital drawing / painting to really increase your understanding of the human figure ~ it's really a proven axiom that the best digital artists are the best traditional artists ~ I think both really feed one another, and I have a feeling if you did some traditional drawing in particular, you might find where the weak spots are and be able to better and more quickly address them than through modeling.

One person who is primarily a 3D artist but who is learning a lot by doing 2D Drawings and Paintings in order to enhance his 3D is kary:

Another person who is both 2D and 3D is Helen~Baq:

And razz has done some really great parallel 2D and 3D exploration and studies:

It would be great to see you try some of the Portraits in Traditional or 2D Digital Media. I also think that doing Master Copies in general, in 2D Traditional / Digital Media, will enormously increase your figurative vocabulary.

This thread contains a lot of free resources for Master Works which I encourage folks to copy:

Looking forward to seeing more of your work. :)

Hi....Ray....:)

REALLY NICE to see your 3D studies...:thumbsup:
Was wondering if you have ever thought of using them in a 2D manner....just for fun, and to experiment with....like on your bird,...would be great to see the feathers done using a digital oil brush maybe,...to get the shimmering jewel like effect that bird feathers have when the light shines on them...they tend to luminate, with an iradesent glow.
I think what Rebecca said, is true about 2D FEEDING INTO 3d, and the more you perfect your 2D skills, the GREATER your 3D will look....impossible to have greatness in one area, without having greatness in the other area...a catch 22 situation if ever there was one, but none the less ..it's true...:scream: :)
REALLY looking forward to seeing more of your work...:thumbsup:

TAKE CARE

RaymondSalter,

Sorry for the lack of response on my part lately, I've been really tied up with personal projects - are you still working on your last model? It looks like you have a great thing going there. If you like, I can post a paintover to recommend some small improvements. :)

Cheers,
