Okay, quick overview: I've decided to work with Ray the elder, because to me age reflects wisdom and experience. When you look at a recent photo of Ray with some of his armatures he really looks the part: Seen it all, and doesn't regret a thing. Okay, enough with the talk.. onto some pictures.
Just doing a little topo study here, there aren't many good photos of Ray that I've found, so It'll be pretty much impossible to set up a typical modeling rig. I'll have to start with building a generic male base mesh and adjust the topology based on these plans:
I've already done quite a bit of work on the base mesh (started yesterday), so I should have some sort of progress shot later tonight.
