good start! keep it up. good choice too. you gonna do him with his top off showing all is tattoos? if so make sure people know what your doing when they see you making them!

Ah dont we all remember the sound of jaws breaking on the curbstone. Good character choice. That was one mean bastard in the movie.

The head looks spot on, though the eyes will sell him.

Looks like Ed, alright. Hopefuly Ed's gonna be a villain in the game though :)

i'll do him as u see in the first pic, only with boxers, boots and you see him in the flashback in the movie...i hope i can save a bunch of poly's to make his gun too.

I'm happy u like my work till now, this is my fourth work in 3d but i've read tons of tutorial!

excellent start! It may just be the field-of-view in the viewport, but the nose and eyes look a tad too large. Give 'im the squinty-eyed hardass look! Definitely going to follow this one.

no offense to ed norton but his nose is pretty big. :P

Looking good so far, but some advice, don't put the reference picture on the model to look if the model looks like the reference picture. (Get that? ;) Because it always does. When they model looks alright without the photo then you know you've got it right.

Keep up the good work, mate. I'm looking forward to this character:)

small update, started the body

next i'll give him some ears i looks kinda "alien" with bald head and no ears...=P

Good anatomy, but Ed looks more like he did in Fight Club than he did in American History x with his current musculature.

03 March 2004, 05:22 PM
yeah you definetly need to beef up the shoulders and biceps. Just look at the pic in your first post!

The nose needs work; etch in creases, so it doesn't turn into a bulbous mass. Also, Norton was pretty buff in X. Try bulking up his trapezius (triangular muscle behind the neck.)
