View Full Version : Character WIP: Tank Girl

09 September 2010, 01:30 PM
Ok, so I should have come here and registered and posted sooner, but I kept putting it off. Anyway, final project for my character modeling class is to model a character (big surprise, right?) and get it critiqued on multiple websites. So here I am. The character I'm doing is Tank Girl, if you don't know who that is, here's some of the references I used: ( (

Now then, on to the images of the model itself. But before that, there's a few things I already know need adjustment. The ears are too far forward, but I'll be sliding them back once I go back into Max. And the arms are a bit too skinny and need some adjustment to the form. Also, will probably widen her midsection a bit. And the lips are looking odd in zbrush, but I'll fix them in Max. Also, it's still very much a work in progress, so the hair and the boots haven't been touched much at all yet. Anything else, I might not be aware of, so throw words at me. Thanks.



Thanks for looking, now throw some words at me.

No replies yet... but here's an update:

More Zbrush detail, base color polypaint, will be taking it back to Max and fixing things and adding detail to the Diffuse and making a spec in Photoshop.


Throw words at me! Thanks.

Ok, so since it's due tomorrow morning, I'm calling it done enough. Diffuse wasn't required, but I did the basic one anyway (I would have put more work into it if it had been required, for instance, the one-tone skin wouldn't be one tone). Anyway, I think I fixed the anatomical errors, I hope. Ears are positioned right, I moved the eyes down, made the arm slightly more realistic and thickened her waist just a tad; I did still want to keep it true to the Tank Girl comic book style though.

Anyway, here's some pictures, tell me how much you hate it and why so that I can improve in the future (or continue to look at it and say nothing at all, that's cool too). Thanks.

Well, the thing that bothered me the most is the hair placement.
It looks as if it's coming out of her forehead. It's quite distracting.
