Oh, some guy. He even posted the images here on CG Talk :annoyed: I'd rather not talk about it though, as the matter has since kinda been cleared up and I don't want to haul the skeletons out of the closet again...

But I sure learned a lesson.

My WIP, maybe to much of specular and the SSS isn't very obvious. There some color and contrast manipulation in Photoshop. 2 lights in the scene: area and point light.

Oh man, Labuzz, that is COOL
What a great character! And your textures so far are great The lips and the cheek closest to the camera look particularly good

Well, Viggo is coming along quite well... Been making some modelling adjustments. Been so absorbed in this WIP that I haven't had time to get any more renders of the other one...

I seriously need to get some hair on him soon... this bald head is starting to bug me



The antialiasing here is quite low, and I rendered it on a dark backfround, hence the dark outline on the one side of the face...

I like the overal feeling of the skin, knowing of course it is still a wip and that you're going to make it evolve.
I find the mesh a bit sharp, but could be the style.
Other than that, IMHO, it is time to work on some lighting and find a less virtual background.
Why Viggo, what does he have that I don't ?

Zarathustra--

Jake, I think you're putting the wagon before the horse. There are some issues with your model that you should address before texturing. Your texturing is off to a good start, though.


Thanks for the reply. Can you elaborate on these issues?
I haven't done the inside of the mouth yet, the eyebrows are not done, and I still need to do the eyelashes. Was there something else that struck you?

I got a little bored with modeling, so I started working on some textures. Unless I'm working under a deadline or something I generally don't worry about any wagon/horse issue. Sometimes, I'll go back and change my geometry based on how things look textured.

Leigh--

I'll tinker with the lights. If I'm reading you correctly--you think the colors are undersaturated? I mean apart from the light quality. Thanks for starting the thread.

you think the colors are undersaturated?


Yeah, overall the face looks undersaturated, in my opinion. However, within the colour map itself, there seems to be some perculiarity with the saturation - some parts seem a little too saturated, while others are less

I understand you, oh yeah. But the only problem is that if you start working with UV, it becomes a mess each time you'll add/delete geometry....

Posm posted a link to this tutorial in the texturing forum, and even though it's for Maya, it's a really interesting read

I recommend checking it out!

Thanks for the comments
Yep, the model is kinda sharp in places - but believe it or not, this guys face has some really sharp angles
I don't want to concern myself toooo much with a background just yet - I'm rather going to concentrate on the model for now. When it's done, I'll make a nice LOTR style environment for him

Another update on my Viggo Mortensen model...

I've started adding some spec to it
Also added some Sas fur for the beard.



And...



Will add some more details to the textures - veins, etc once I have had some sleep

[EDIT]

Added some more tonal detail to the colour map.

I also used the BRDF shader in this render, with the spec colour set to blue. It softens the skin really nicely, but the only problem is that it then cancels out the spec map I painted. Once I have had some sleep, I am going to experiment with rendering out seperate passes, and colouring the spec like that...

Hi everybody,

I can't figure out how Strike make his skins... any idea?


an example:







see ya,


i could be talking out of my ass here but this looks like its baked.. meaning he applied the base textures then added the procederials and shading, radiosity, all that stuff to achieve this final result but then that is only a guess.

Worked on this tonight :

There are some stretching aroud the cheeks, and bumpmap+refmap are the same as colormap.
3 Areas ,Tiny G2, HDR texture environment, no radiosity.
Around 1mn15s on dual xeon 2.6Ghz
