View Full Version : Final Frontier Eddie (From Iron Maiden)
08 August 2010, 03:42 PM
Ok I been hooked on Eddie since the first time I saw an Iron Maiden Concert way back in the 70's. I found a site that has every Eddie version ever done and they had the new Final Frontier Eddie and thought I would try.
(BTW in the video the space pilot fighting Eddie looks Just like the one they have on the box cover for Starcraft. And Eddie is a variant of the pretador without his mask. Wonder if they are both coincidences?
anyways anyone wanting any Eddie Ref or wallpapers this sites the bomb http://www.ironmaidenwallpaper.com/
anyways here is my ref images
the base skull was done in 3DS with the sculpting and poly painting to be dine in ZBrush. If the head comes out ok I want to do the body.
the first picture is of their initial idea which I am using for a base, and then the final results show his brains on the right side top of his head.
the main problem I am having right now is to get that cheek bone brought out properly.
for a base I started with a regular shaped skull and then lengthened the back of it , shortened the upper gum area, recessed the nose bones a little more, smooshed the eye sockets and widened them some.
Now I am working on the brow and cheek ridges.
The second photo series is where I was working on the base.

I been doing some work since this was posted. I have worked some more on the cheek bone and brow bone to give me a base. I also got the lower jaw and jaw horns in place. the first pic doesnt have them but the final render did so I am adding them.

Ok tonight worked on his Bubbly Brains. I will have to bring some of the bubbly into his right eye socket yet and add some veins on the side of his skull. I got the crack at the back of the skull in place but dont really like the look of it. I suck at making cracks lol

Just comparing your model to your source images, maybe you should make the cheek ridge flatter and sharper. I think from the top the cheek bones should have more pronounced corners, making them more squarish.

thanks yes I have a lot of work to do on the cheeks yet. also on the video you get a glimpse of the side of his head and where the cheekbone ends it looks like a hard surface inorganic object. I been busy this week so not much time to work on it but I need to work on the cheeks and the eye brow area and then start texturing. I hope to get back to him later in the week
