Game Art Comp 6: Daniel Day Lewis/ Gang of New York

Since this is such a nice subject for a comp I decided to reserve my spot for the challenge. I will model Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York. Since he is so hard ofcourse.

Here's a little picture of the guy





Hopefully an update will come soon. Im starting the hunt for reference pics and Im gladly excepting hints on where to find good pics of the guy.

Great choice. Gangs of New York has a lot of characters you could make a game model out of.

I also love the Bill the Butcher character. I'd go for the outfit he wears for the streer battle at the start of the movie which looks really cool. Good choice though.

I kind of like the scull-cap. Reminds me of that dude on Monty Python who always yelled barely understandable and completely incomprehensible nonsense at the top of his lungs.

The hat will be detachable, so the scullcap will also be visible. I kinda like the psycho look the high hat gives him.

The monkey arms will be shortened

Is that handle-bar mustache gonna be geometry or image mapped to a flat face? I'm just wondering because I can't see the geometry in the face yet.

I'm a total newb to game modeling (well modeling in general really), so I might just be talking out of my nose here, but I think a feature -that- prominent probably is going to look a little flat as just an image map.

Lookin' really great, my favourite of this competition so far. But you should try to model his clothes like in the reference pictures meaning not making the neck that V-shaped but more round and giving him a collar like in the reference pics. Keep it coming!

Yep, the clothes are going to be fixed as well. What you see now is just temporary.
