View Full Version : Can someone model something for me?

10 October 2009, 03:02 AM
Hi, I've been trying to model a character of a loony toons fox but I'm going about it wrong and can't work out how to do it.

And I was wondering if someone could have a quick go and show me how they did it. I'm only having trouble with the face.

Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to look at a few box modeling tutorials.

I know how to model, it's just this particular character i can't work out, so unless there are cartoon fox tutorials it wont help me much :(

I've already done almost every worthwhile character modeling tutorial on the net.

What I'm saying is his face is irregular/uncommon, I've never done something like it and I just can't get it right, so would like to see how a more experienced modeler does it.

Well I had another go, it turned out a bit better although there are still obvious problems with it.

I'd say you're off to a good start.You're more than capable of modeling this.You have the head topology set out pretty good.All you need now is some tweaking/refinement around the snout area.Of course,if you intend to rig/animate this character then it would be helpful if you posted some non sub-D'd wires so we could comment more.

Keep at it,you're nearly there.

Think you should look some more at the fur on the side of his head, to me it looks more like u create it like a mustache while it should be more connected with the general shape of the head. It looks like you should connect it better with the chin/lower mouth and neck, i think it's to thin atm.

Try to locate some more ref's so u get a better understanding of the shapes.

Overall i think it looks good.
