View Full Version : What makes a "heroic" face?

01 January 2005, 09:03 PM
As I'm building a model for a main character in the film I'm working on, who is supposed to be a very stereotypical hero, I'm trying to think of what defines a strong, manly, heroic face. What are some suggestions that people have?

This is an easy one. Just look at my avatar and try mimic those characteristics of face I made from pictures of myself. :D

Funny, to me that "idealistic" version was something that is been used in cartoons and movies.

Thanks for the replies guys. I didn't realize I had gotten any beyond the first one and had forgotten about the thread! :) Thanks for the size chart, I had done some research on that for one I've started building the body. I decided to go with "idealistic" proportions instead of heroic. I'm using the Vitrovian man in addition to some size charts for reference. Here's what I ended up with for the face, which I'm pretty happy with, though any suggestions I'd be glad to entertain and consider!
