View Full Version : Model Sheet Making. What Posture?

03 March 2003, 05:59 AM

hey all, could any of the seasoned pros or art school kiddies take a look at the model sheets i've done and give me a few pointers? i'm not a student of anything game related, so i really don't have a clue what i'm doing.

i'm mainly concerned about the posture, should the arms and legs be more spreadeagled? is a side-view of the arm necessary? i'm sure there's a lot i'm missing, and tips would be much appreciated.

they're just pencil sketches on graphing paper, tweaked in photoshop (you can see breaks in the grid on some areas.)

tips? :/

You might want to do a close up detailed view of the head, front/side.

Those look good for modeling....I would say that for concepting that the more drawings you have the better. Even if you're going to model them yourself, it will still shed a lot of light on what you're thinking of as far as the finished product.

Just puts thoughts in a visual form...looks good though dude.

My only crit is that on the humanoids, youll probably want a drawing of the arm from the front too...

About your poses, usuallyI put my characters in the default pose. Arms outreached to the side with the thumbs pointing upward. Other than tha tnice model sheets.

The 'Jesus' pose puts too much stress on the shoulders in terms of stretching..having them more relaxed is beneficial

They work for me, I could certainly model from them.
