View Full Version : Head-likeness

I wanted to see if I could do a celeb and have people tell who it is. I haven't started the texture yet but can anyone guess?

christopher walken?

Heres some texture work I did on him.

thats rather frightening... try toning down the contrast and brightness of the texture (or lights) and get more reference material...

can't believe I nailed that! it really was a stretch, but hey, what a guy. You really need to get some good refs. front and side views from one time period. don't proceed with textures until you're solid on the modelling. it still needs a lot of work on the modelling side. i only guessed it because:

a. I'm in love with CW
b. I answer every question with " Christopher Walken?" (even 'How are you?')
c. I'm the reigning wheel of fortune champ

damn. work on this. you have a worthy subject

no really it is a good start - once I knew who it was meant to be I could totally see where you are going. My first try at something similar (my Michael Jordan model, click the link below to see) looked more like Mike Tyson for the first couple of iterations, but if you keep at it and with good reference material, just keep at it and you will really bring him out.

lol what a coincidence, i started gathering pics to model a Walken head myself:scream: I also guessed who it was right away so i think you're on the right track.
