View Full Version : Low poly human model...

05 May 2002, 09:42 PM
..eeek. Sorta ****s. This guy DOES NOT HAVE TEXTURES YET. They will be on him in a month :). He's 3950, pretty frickin high, but I like him ok. This is my first human low poly model....its evolved quite a bit if any of you saw my old version. Rendered in lightwave, modelled with Wings3d

i think the first thing you should do is study anatomy. the proportions are off. go online and get some pics for reference. post wireframe so i can see wut u need to reduce

I'm sort of a rookie, porportions didn't matter to me in this model, and I'm just starting a new one.....I can't post a wire right now..... but actually ,you can see all my stuff here:

it has wireframe. Thanks for your help :)

porportions should matter at any level man. you'll appreciate it later. even if u are going for exaggeration.

Ok...i know my proportions are of...but any other comments..?

The most important thing is getting used to 3d and getting a feeling of how it works, its ok proportions took a back seat. Now that you have tested the water a little you can now tweek things keeping proportions in mind.

other than what we all have mentioned, its pretty cool for your first model. especially if you're teaching yourself.

As your first model I think your off to a good start. 3950 is way too high though. I say you could probly do him, without loseing any detail in about 1500 or less. I honestly think what would really help you has already been mention. Reference. Reference everything. Clothing, anatomy, sunglasses, hair, everything you can to make your job easier and faster. I rarely build models anymore that doesn't have some, if not all aspects of referenced material. I'm not saying copy it, just keep at your side as a helpful reminder. The problem with modeling any human figure is we all have an ideal picture in our head of how a person should look. Nine times out of ten, we're all wrong. So I say, don't get discouraged and keep modeling. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I totally agree with you guys. My hair is like, 660 polygons (I just make some cuts and extruded) my glasses are like, 200, belt is 200, hands are 250+, feet are 150+, shoulder pad and holder are like 200. Lousy man, lousy :)
