View Full Version : character: it's me in low poly

02 February 2004, 01:37 PM

here is me... no it really is. :)
this is a low poly excercise that i am currently doing for a low-poly brief set by codemasters. actually i'm just doing it for a bit of fun coz the brief is for 3rd year students and i'm only in the second year :(
well here i am....plz crit all you want.
the model is pretty much finished. (his legs don't look that short in the ortho views.)
the textures are about 80% complete.
just trying to figure out how to rig him now.
all crits welcome.

a close up of the face. ( sorry about the poor quality jgs)

i had to do a render view coz i can't for the life of me get alpha maps to work in the viewports. ( something to do with my graphics card i think) it doesn't work too well in the render either tho.

uhhhhhhhhh, we donīt need you in 3d ... *puke*


Nah m8, the model is keeped good and simpel

The face texture and the hair look really good but the rest ...well the creases in the knee area need alot more variation and work.
Just look at other textures ...

well whatever, keep us updated

and next time you go out to buy a henry donīt dress so ovious ;)

yeah i can see what you mean about the texture.
it's surprising how you don't notice it even tho you have been staring at it for hours. :)

will post another wip tomorrow probably. dunno i f i will have time to work on it tonight.
think i might need to change the model a little bit. no way is my face that fat. :)

Yeah it definetly has a swollen face look, of course if that's what you really look like then that's cool.

Might wanna consider posting a reference pic. Hard to crit you as a model if we don't know what you look like.

It's a good start. Keep on trucking

yeah te face does look swollen. i think i will have to take a lok into that. i don't have a swollen face in real life.

looking good. I think that they eyes could use some more detail though. They seem a little subpar to the rest of the texture. There is a good brief tutorial on painting eyes on poop's site ( . Hope that helps. Keep us posted.
