I'm modeling a Male human for a school assignment; I'm trying to get my muscle flow down. I modeled the muscles all in patches, hoping that my line flow would take the form of all my muscles. I'm kind of new to the CG world was wondering if anyone could tell me what I'm doing right and wrong with this model so far.

it is a sin to model the nipples. you must seek forgiveness.

hey man, nice job.
nice torso, looks good and topology makes sense. only set back probably are the elbows in the arm area. they look squeezed in, but i could tell your still working on it. Keep up the good work. ;)

Here's an update on the model, haven't been able to spend as much time as I would have like to on it.

looks really good. but I don't know...those missing parts mainly in the leg area look a bit confusing to me.

Maybe I'm wrong - I am not the best in anatomy :p

hmm, to me his Lats look waaay to chubby in reference to the rest of his body(his abdominals for example). and even a really huge bodybuilder don´t have lats looking like that. I often look at bodybuilders to see how the muscles are positioned and their relative size, then I just make em smaller and less defined to make it look normal.
Here´s a pic of Ronnie Coleman who´ve won mr Olympia over and over and over again.

here´s a good link (

here´s another good link:

edit: ooh, sorry, saw that you´ve improved the back (I only lookad at the first pic) but, I still think they´re a bit overgrown

Sorry guys I kind of gave up on that model, I'm still trying to figure out the human body, I started production on my demo real at school but I falling behind trying to put as much as I can in to my first model, I'll start posting in the wip section I guess thanks everyone for all the comments on this model it's really encouraging me to continue with this art form.
