Sci-fi shock trooper. Almost all silo. I'm fiddling with him in poser now to get some different static poses. If things go well I predict that I won't have to switch applications to do that soon.

Nothing to be very proud of here but this is my first organic model ever (I did a lot of architectural work before but never ever I dared to touch the "I move vertices for hours black magic) and my first model in Silo. It's based on a tutorial by Tony Jung that can be found on Nevercenter's site (very nice tutorial btw, thanks a lot Tony Jung ). It's not something I would usually dare to show on CGTalk but I really wanted to say thank to Nevercenter's team for making Silo and making it cheap enough for me to be able to afford it (I'm not a professional as you can probably see ). And when I see it's possible for a beginner like me with about 3 hours work in a software I just discover to make something that indeed look like a head (a rude one, I agree but still a head ) and find it easy, there's no doubt you achieved a very nice piece of software (I played with the demos of some of the bigger ones first but never achieved something like that in such a small amount of time)
So thank you again, really, really thank you


(btw, nope, I'm not paid by Nevercenter to say that, it's true )

Abraham - I think you made a damn fine job for your first organic! One thing looks a little weird, the ears appear to be a seperate mesh at a different resolution!?

Thank you BazC (blush) and yes, you're right I'm at the part of the tutorial where you model the ear so I still need to work on the inside of it and then reattach it but hehe, I was sooooo happy I couldn't wait posting

My first Silo model. Never thought I'd find something I liked more than Lightwave's modeller, but Silo's nailed it!

Now for some ears!

Been working on this on and off for a week or two. I'm attempting to figure out good surfaces at the mo':

Downloaded the trial a few days back, I've gotta say I'm really impressed with Silo so far.

Here's my first attempt at a Silo model (about 3hrs worth), C&C welcome!

Lookin' great so far, but it seems you have some funky areas behind the eye and cheek other then that I like the overall shape of the character.

Heh, the funky areas happened when I caved in to the call of the pub! I normally avoid doing ears till the very last. Damn foldy bits.
