Hi everyone! When I saw this challenge I decided to hop in, this is my very first post in here at CGTalk. I've been hanging around here at the forums for a while now. There's so much talented artists here, so I felt a bit scared to post anything earlier.

My choise is: Blade - Wesley Snipes

I will be using blender for modelling him.

Nice to meet you all!

ok, here's an update

http://h1.ripway.com/DaddyO/wip2.JPG

The eyes was a bit hard to model, because Blade wears sunglasses in most of the reference pictures I used. I'll find some pictures of Snipes as himself, so I can get the eyes look right. The neck is still a total mess I'll fix it as well. C&C are welcome

a little update. I changed the hairstyle to match the hairstyle Blade had in the first movie, and did some other little changes.

a little update. I started to model the upper body. I'll propably just make a bust, so I modelled the arm that way. The upper body and the neck still needs tons of fixing to make it look right. I also need to clean the mesh a little, but I don't really like cleaning...so I do it later

Thank you all for the kind words :)

I made a little test to see how does he look when the both sides are together.

There's still lots to do. I'm not sure yet if I should model his eyebrows and facial hair, but I just might do that to see how he'd look then

Here's the update

http://h1.ripway.com/DaddyO/wip6.JPG

There's no subsurf on, and I'm sorry for the colors they look a bit funny.
Started to do the jacket and did the undershirt. I'll start modelling on the vest he wears in the movie when I got time.

small update again.
After I have modified the textures of the jacket and the shirt, I should find some good reference pictures of the tattoo he has in the back of his head.

I haven't had time to work on this model much because of school, but I'll post orthos with textures and props now, because now I got some time to spare. Here:

I'll post orthos without textures and props later.

Hey it looks very nice ;) but i think that his lips are much too big.

Thanks for the replies :)
I think the texture makes the lips look bigger than they actually are, but he does have big lips:)

Here's the non textured orthos of him, I'll post the other renders later. I hope you like it

Looks great, but has something happened to the ears. A poly is sticking out the back.

Kingfu
05-01-2007, 09:54 PM
Didn't see that, thanks :), but it's just a flipped face. Just like in the whole ear, the faces have flipped for some reason.

Here's the textured orthos with props.
