Hi dude.

When You do it?? You are sometimes tired?? Sleeping, eating, drinking, something like that?? I take one day breathing, and today I doing something.

Anyway, looks nice but, give some orthographic(something like that), becouse I think she have too small hands.

For now looking great. I hope You will rig her (maybe some face skinning??:P)

Keep going ...

Looking real good Hanzo the proportions are looking spot on! I sort of agree with Por@szek on the hands but maybe its not the hands and more so the size of the forearm going into the hand, cause hey after all girls do have small hands!
I like the in turned feet, always looks cool on females. Are you gonna texture this one?
keep it up!

11 November 2004, 10:09 PM hey guys thanks for the replies.

The reason things might look kinda funny, is because I don't leave max at the default lens angle in the views that I work in, normally it's 40, I have mine set to 85 so it's more then twice refracted angle. I do this to give me a better understanding of the models shape from a smaller view, plus it's more like the humane eye. sorry about that lil mix up..

keeganb_2000 I don't need to do the texture for that team I'm working with (that's not my responsibility), but hey what the hell, I'll make the textures to have really nice version just to slap on my site.. :twisted:

here's the orthographic views,

Hey, great work Hanzo! I like the mesh and the loops look like they are in the right place.

The only crit I would say would be some of the lack of tapering around the wrist, knee, and lower ankle. They need to come in more, like, the wrist needs to be thinner before the hand begins.
Here's a pic of what I mean:

I totally give you kudos, though. It's hard to model a female base mesh(male's are easier) because of all the soft and subtle detail. Even the slightest movement of one vert can totally change the character.

My approach was similar to yours, build a femal "base mesh", then model around it. I learned a lot from this experience.

Cool, man! Look forward to more :thumbsup:

the elbow seems alittle high. remember generally the elbow is on the same plane with the belly button on a human figure. Bring it down a bit. the neck looks alittle thick maybe.

yup elbow should lie at just about the position of belly button
