He's 1327 polygons and only the guitar was textured with photos

hehe, did you get around to animating those fingers in action? :D

He looks good, the texture's looking a bit flat though. You could prolly do with some extra highlights and shadows round the collar edge, seems, muscle tone etc.

You should knock up some props and get some classy renders hehe

Hehe, yeah I rigged up a nifty piece of software that distinguishes musical notes and chords and made morph targets for each one and max takes care of the rest. I wish. ;)

I imagine something like that would be theoretically possible, at least in a rough way with some simple chords and teach it how to strum, virtual virtuoso :)

Ill work with the texture a bit sometime. Im itching to do another high poly classic car, but I think I'd better do a few more characters first.

Here's another pose, working the high notes and feelin the music.

That is soo cool! How long did that take you? omg, you should do an entire band and animate them! :thumbsup:

:buttrock: :beer: :applause:

i agree with the band thing. i wanna see some rock n roll.:scream: very cool model!

Thanks guys :)

I thought about doing the rest of the band but I need to go on and do another type of character. Im thinking of that big mexican dude in Deperado that throws knives, or someone inspired by him, I also saw a cool painting of Cardinal Richelieu that I think would make a cool model.

By the way I redid my webpage, I havent quite decided on the design as final, but all the links work so check it out and let me know what you think?

The changes Im making to the site are as follows:

Less wide, thicker buttons for navigation so they dont seem so crammed in

Slimmer title image, not as tall but just as wide.
