Diez' Wolverine


Today I want to introduce my very first project in zBrush.
It's my own interpretation of Carlos Diez' Wolverine character.

Here is my reference :

The work almost finished :

Thumbs up Overall...

Overall I think this is quite good though there are some issues for me, Firstly, the mouth (especially the bottom lip) looks unnatural, I realise this is modelled from an interpretation by an artist but seeing it in the 3D world looks strange.

Also the bottom set of teeth seems very long with too much gum showing, and the head piece covering the nose look strange, I've always seen/imagined this as a nose guard over the front almost like Batman's cowl...

Looks good!
My suggestions:

Like Micheal said the mask ends at his nose. I added an image that shows this.

His upper lip is too i think, it's pulled up to show the teeth so it should look shorter. In your ref image its also very short, just under his nose.

His lower lip should two muscular pads on either side, underneath creating more convex appearance at the sides than the concave centre area. The image that shows this too.

His eyes lack expression, I think they should be squinter, and the brows should come down over them on the inner sides. Try aiming for the triangular eye shape in both images.

His left arm looks strange, the bicep shouldn't jut out further than the shoulder. Maybe the shoulder should be bigger or the bicep smaller.

I hope some of that was helpful.

First of all: Very nice work, I really like it. It think I cannot really contribute a lot of new aspects, but like said before I think the mouth looks weird. In the reference picture you posted, Wolverine looks like he's angry (it even looks like he has some sort of "vampire-teeth" to me). In your version the teeth look a little too big and it looks more like he's trying to smile while in deep pain, especially because his eyes don't look evil, either. Try going for that triangular shape like OmarJason said.

Another thing I stumbled across was the cheekbone. I find that it sticks out a little too much, but maybe that's just me.

Other than that: awesome piece of work so far :-)
