HMC #35: SPORTS IN MOTION!: Javelin (Andreas Thorkildsen)


A was thinking about modeling the great Norwegian athlete Andreas Thorkildsen at the moment he is about to throws the javelin. I think, if I get it right, it can be a powerful and interesting pose.

Really looking forward to this one.

Here is a photo of the guy.

I was lucky to find some decent pictures of his profile and front yesterday.

Started on the basemesh for the head today.

Started working a bit on the body and done some small tweeks to the head.
The fine details I will work on in Mudbox.

Very small update. Done some new topology in the groin area.

Done some modelling again. Also fixed a couple of bad topology solutions.
I will soon take him into Mudbox for some sculpting.

Started on the sculpting. Still need alot of work on the legs arms and hands.
Crits are appreciated.

Looking good so far. I think the forearms look too short and the hands are a little small, but other then that I think it's looking good.

The facial features and torso look really good!

Good luck on the deadline

You are right! I will try to sort those problems out today. Thanks Splinter!

I made the hands a bit larger, and the forearms are a bit longer.
I would have liked to be able to make the shoes a bit more detailed, but when I posed the shoes with the rest of the guy, the detail level was quite similar.

I would have liked to maybe do the shorts a bit more detailed too, but due to some laptop limitations, I couldn't really add any more supdivitions.
