Starcraft - Terran Marine

Hi Everyone,

I just can't find a good subject to my next Model. Then I tought of a short cinematic I could do someday. Always wanted to do a Starcraft scene. And always love the Terran Marine exosuit. So.. lol


So I will start soon. I gather all my refs and post some on a board (I have more then that of course)

I also photoshoot my action figure of Tychus Findlay for my Orthographic views. I know that , because of the joints of the action figure, I need the correct some piece but hey it's a big challenge.


I also collect some pictures on Pinterest for those who want more Starcraft stuff

Well. I try it. I try to match the photo not my orthographic references, because I was prefering the others models. It's a toy ref after all, the size et proportion are wrong.. Maybe I will restart it from the boots and go up.

I take 84 screenshots from the teaser cinematic real good ref. I share it with you.

I start blocking the thing. I didn't go crazy to the subdivision in Softimage for now. I would like to go really deep in the detail. In the topology and not in displacement.

Nice start.
I hope yours goes smoother than mine did. You are right, References from all angles is key.

Hey man,

I really like the concept for this, and it looks like your off to a good start!

Does the human inside match up to the joints on the suit? It seems there are lots of fan art pieces out there. Some look like the elbows and knees would match up, while others don't. Or maybe since this is fiction, it doesn't matter.

In the game the torso and legs match, but the arms do not. The hand is inside the gauntlet. The wrist and hand of the suit are robotic. That sort of makes the elbow an issue.
You can see the suit up process in the first trailer of StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty.

Yah I will redo some adjustment for the human proportions. The leg knee are the real joints in the cinematic version but the arms are a bit off.

Don't look at my render yet I will ajust it this weekend

I fix my proportions based on HOTS cinematic with Jim Raynor in armour suit.

Also add some details
