The model is pretty much done. I just want to add draw strings to the hoodie. I kinda like the flat colors for the texture too so I might just keep that as is.

Next up is material and rigging world.

My normals are rendering backwards. Does anyone know how to reverse normals without having to edit the maps (maya/vray)?

I decided I'm going to texture her too. The flat colors are a little boring. I have a ton of more work to do with the rig. I've been making big changes to my rigs in the past month so there is a fair amount of instability lol...

New character in my free time! This is my first fan art. I have been a big fan of Ragnarok Online for some time so I decided to make a character loosely based off the assassin cross. If it goes well I'll do champ or lord knight next.

Just some poly modeling.

You can reference Disney character for the cartoony look. I used to do that alot. Make some design sketches, helps a lot.

Anyway, I think the neck of the cartoony girl is too thick. Thin neck is one of the figure of Disney style cartoon (like Frozen). I think the bone structure below her eyes are a bit too harsh also, for a cartoon character.

Also, hands seems too small. For cartoon character, the hands & feet tends to be larger than normal. Its to balance the normally slightly larger proportion head.

Hope these comments helps. Also, maybe a good idea is to have a cartoon reference for the character, for proportion.

Yeah :P I just kind of started from my base mesh and exaggerated certain areas. I think for my next stylized character I'll do a bit more research and gather some inspiration. My main worry is the shape of the eyes, which I feel is one of the most important aspects of a stylized female.

More poly modeling. Don't mind the messy quads on the clothing. I'll do all the creases in zBrush. I was just messing around.

Here are some character rigs if anyone is interested:

Also, maybe somebody will recognize this lady. I got bored from the assassin character so I did some head sculpting practice I just projected the texture on the front real quick to help me visualize the likeliness.

Got assassin guy in zBrush and sculpted a head. I'll add a few more accessories and give him hair. Then it's time to sculpt the rest

UVs are a little messed up, that's why the texture looks messy. It's nice working with poly paint because I can fix UV stuff on the fly and just export a new map.

17k tri. A little high but not bad. I might add hair geo too.

Oh no! More pirates. I'm trying to get better at cloth. Arms and pants need a lot more detail.

Old 03 March 2014   #70
One more for today. I would like to do some more painting on the boots. After that I'll do a final detail pass.

Old 03 March 2014   #71
I think the pants leg sits a little awkwardly above the boot.

I'm far from an expert of fabric sculpting, but I would imagine that it would bunch up, rather than flatten out.

You're totally right. I took a stab at using MarvelousDDesigner, however my lack of experience with the program shows I'll touch it up when I get back from skiing.

Thanks for the comments, it really helps!

Sculpting a male base mesh to help speed up character creation. I started with the hands because that's the part I struggle with the most!

You and me both. I'd say that's a good base.

Check the creases at the base of the fingers on the inside, I think they are too deep. The thumb looks too bent for a rest position.

Might be good to post a side view. The shapes look good from the top.

Some more angles:

I changed the thumb up a little. You were right, it was too bent. Smoothed some things out too. Thanks for the comments!

Moving on to the arm for now.
