View Full Version : character: character body WIP

06 June 2004, 05:36 PM
this is a character im working on for my demo reel..i assume the anatomy is probly incorrect compared to real life..but i dont intend to model every detail in..hopefully i can fix some things with textures because i plan on having him armoured up

any comments or crits are welcome..thanx

I really like the style of the head.......and for the most part, the physique looks spot on. I'm still trying to get a grip on making the body for my current ptoject. About the only thing I'd say to change are the abs......either they are too high up (which I think is the case), or the space under them to the bottom of the groin is too large. Good work, though.

thanx for the's good to know other ppl are liking the look of it..i'll see what i can do about the groin area and see if i can fix that problem with the space being to long..but thanx

It's a good start, and it's a little of both: the abs are too high, and there's a little too much space below them. Doesn't help that the poor guy has no package either. He also seems a little swaybacked--like he's pushing his hips back and the lower end of his ribcage forward.
His eyes may be a little high on his head, too. Though it might be the angle.

Keep it up, and remember that having a good base makes adding to it that much easier.

ah..thanx again for more feedback..i tried lowering the abs a bit and making the space between the bottom of the abs and the bottom of the groin area not so for the eyes..i think its just the angle i believe..i'll post other renders..but i have them placed roughly in the middle of the head[from top to bottom]

i'll post some new updated renders soon..

thanx again

The upper portion looks great, I really like the style you have added to the head, it looks like it has more character than many models I have seen.

I think the biggest problem so far is how low the hips are. In this picture you have the oblique muscles (love handles) below the third layer of ab muscles, which I see as a problem. I might be wrong about this, but it looks off to me, like the torso is too elongated.

thanks for the new that i look at it..i think that your right..the love handles probly are a bit going to move them up and do a test render to see how they look

and im glad your feeling the look of the head..always good to know ppl are liking the look

i'll post an update soon..if i can get some more feedback on the new one..that'd be great

The pecs seem to droop too low before the armpits, I think they'd be stretched a bit higher in this pose. The clavicle should maybe be straighter from this pov, not so concave. Good start.

thanks for the feedback stahlberg, now that i look at it some more..your right about the collar bone is too concave...i'll try to bring it out and up a little..and i'll try to bring the pecs out a bit as well..and see how it looks..i'll post new pics soon..just gotta wait to get back to school..
