06-28-2007, 06:13 AM
Yea, this is going to be fun. :D

06-29-2007, 06:09 AM
hey, nice idea~ lol. i'll follow this thread. good luck! :)

07-01-2007, 09:40 PM (

This is just a quick sketch of my concept. It is a little basic right now, and does not represent the look that I am trying to go for yet.

07-01-2007, 09:41 PM
A new part of the idea: He is actually a killer for hire, but in his spare time, he likes to knit.

07-02-2007, 12:05 AM
LOL that's funny! Is he a cyborg or sth?

07-02-2007, 12:43 AM
No, I just kind lazy, haha. :eek: :D

07-02-2007, 06:51 AM (

Here is the start of the face. I still want to find some reference to base some of the facial features on.

07-02-2007, 07:05 AM
Funny one. The face fits very well.

07-02-2007, 07:37 AM
hmm the idea is ... ok and that "killer" looks flat :/ lol j/k ... damn you, cool idea.

07-02-2007, 09:09 AM
the face looks very nice and the concept is great... keep it up

07-02-2007, 05:46 PM
Thank you Lun3 :)

Thanks kdkaos :D

Thank you icedeyes :)

07-03-2007, 08:34 AM (

This is the start of the character. :)
I don't know how much more I am going to model before I need to pose him. (*sigh* and unwrapping...). Anyways, hope you like :D

07-03-2007, 08:45 AM
hey :)

that's nice :) this smooth version appear really great :)
could you share a wireframe shaded version please ?:)
thanks a lot :)


07-03-2007, 09:34 AM
the t-shirt looks a bit strange around the neck, apart from that good model
idea is nice too.

07-03-2007, 10:05 AM
the model looks just great except from the area ania mentioned... it might be the angle though... great work

07-03-2007, 01:23 PM
great modeling.

but the t-shirt really looks too strange cause no stretch is able to show that much shape of the muscles. Especially without any rinckles.

maybe you'll fix it during the posing.


07-03-2007, 06:01 PM
flaeticia , ania , icedeyes, nothingness : Thank you :).

For the neck area, yea weird :) I think I just winged it and probably made the shape wrong for the collar. Thanks for noticing :)

Yea, I will be going wrinkles and making it look more like a shirt once I have it posed and can take it into some kind sculpting program (but maybe I should model the largest wrinkles in).

The pants and shoes are just started, but I don't really know what kind of pants I should give him. Do you think some kind of dress pants or something less casual would work ok?


07-03-2007, 06:03 PM
good going mate.... althought i would like to pint out something.. first of all the figure seems a bit disproportionate, i donno if its the angle but the upper portion of the body seems bigger then the lower portion... another thing is the head... i think its a bit oo big for a body like that... i donno if u wud like to exagerate anything but if u do u might wanna make the head even smaller to give him that big-guy look.... another thing.. the already mentioned t-shirt issue.

other then that good job on the modeling.. nice work on the muscles... keep up the good works...


07-03-2007, 06:03 PM (

Here is the model with wireframe.

07-03-2007, 06:08 PM
hey overcontrast, thanks :) I see what you mean. I'll do some iterations. And I like the idea for making the head smaller too :).


07-03-2007, 06:46 PM
looks good man, :). his bisep is really big~ ;p, good luck!

07-03-2007, 10:12 PM (

I changed the proportions a little. The legs are longer, and the head is slightly smaller. :)

07-03-2007, 10:20 PM
I think those muscles are slightly too big, especially the chest and the Papaye forearms :scream:... personally I also liked the previous, wider t-shirt opening at the neck, now it looks weird, as if he's inside some suit.

good start though - make him a little dumber looking than he's now :twisted::thumbsup:

07-03-2007, 10:45 PM
Thanks Magdalena :) Haha, I don't know which collar I like more:eek: I'll have to see what works best once he is posed. Hrm, yea maybe he is muscled too much :( His forearms are almost like wings. haha..XD.. Anyways, I will tone everything down (I might keep his chest as it is until it's posed.. his chest should be more flexed once he is in his pose, so the size might work...) :) .


07-04-2007, 10:05 AM
i personally like the bloated muscles he has... i think the new colar is too tight right now..

have fun,

07-04-2007, 05:06 PM
Thanks for the comment :)

07-04-2007, 05:42 PM
Man, your concept rock... it looks so bizarre

07-04-2007, 06:47 PM
Haha, thanks man :D

07-06-2007, 02:42 AM (

Here is the beginning progress for the shoes.

07-06-2007, 06:16 AM (

Here is an update on the guy's face. Still modeling certain parts of his face. I also plan on eventually doing some sculpting (soon...hopefully...)

07-07-2007, 08:51 AM
I like the frowny face very much... the chin seems a little strange like its bending fat to its center... maybe its the angle... keep it up

07-07-2007, 09:23 AM
I also plan on eventually doing some sculpting (soon...hopefully...)
so this is just poly modelling till now? cool, I like that, can I see a wire please?

07-07-2007, 09:52 AM
Your concept and your model looks very good.I don't know if following proportion with muscolar bodies is so right since the most of the time these kinds of bodies are unproportioned.However I think making him more proportioned is visually better.
Keep on going.

07-07-2007, 06:09 PM (

No changes to the face yet. Just showing the wireframe. :) It's still a little sloppy....

07-07-2007, 06:15 PM
icedeyes : Thanks. Yea, the chin thing is weird, and I will fix it :)

ania: yea, just poly right now. :scream:

Zethriel: Thanks :) I will keep it in mind.

I think it's time for me to unwrap some parts... :(

07-07-2007, 10:31 PM
Wow! Very nice modelling! And very cool concept very good idea!


07-09-2007, 06:28 AM
Thank you :):)

07-09-2007, 06:48 AM
Beautiful modeling - and the concept really rocks! :thumbsup:

07-09-2007, 10:18 AM
Great concept!

An idea would be to make the T-Shirt a little more like a vest. So you see this big man knitting. Although, not too much like a vest or else you will have Bruce on you ^ ^

07-09-2007, 08:56 PM
Greg-Jackson : Thanks for the comments :) So maybe a tank top or something. hrm.. :D

07-10-2007, 07:11 AM
the wire looks clean... keep it up

07-11-2007, 04:50 AM
Thanks icedeyes :D

08-03-2007, 02:42 AM (

Here is some progress on the arms for the model. Sorry for the quite long delay in posts. With work/vacation and lack of time, its been difficult to spend some time on it (unfortunatly). Anyways, hope you like.

08-03-2007, 03:08 AM

08-03-2007, 01:56 PM
