--- A Little Angel ---

hello !!!

I started a little model this week end and think it could be fun to do normal map ( but i don't know how !!! )

anyway i finish my model and started zbrush ... with few hours screaming in my room because of this interface i don't understand, i found some tips, and i think now it's an amasing way to add details on my big angel but i have to learn a lot ( i think i lost so much time ...anyway for a first step ! )

1500 tris and a first pass in zbrush
much more t come...

i don't know for the moment how to smooth the little bug that make these model very slackness ( if anyone know to make clean shapes !

well i manage to do a normal map of my guy but it seems that it's not good ( just one color , don't understand even with hundred of tut )

anyway i'm back with a hand painted texture ( i'll try to learn ZB much more after that )

C&C are welcome

very sorry for my use of english... still try to communicate

Haha, Nice stuff! "Who's the cute little angel, Who's the cute little aangel!!"

hehe cool idea

I would make his stomache a bit fatter and his feet even shorter to push the design.
The face fits great.

The model is good allthough you are using quite a few faces for his penis. Also the loops around his knees need to be optimized.

His texture is coming along allright but it still doesnt look crisp enough. You also have alot of heavy dark parts (around the shoulders fa.) wich has a big visual impact on the image.

I personally think the Zbrush model is coming along niceley but I dont think Im qualified to give crit in that highpoly field because also I am still experimenting in that field

Keep us updated

PS: You might want to use a simple plane with opacity for the holyshine

i love the design,
and i agree with phil about using a plane with transparency, unless you could spare the polygons.

it looks really nice ( the Chars and the Textures ) but I think u should put more contrast ont the texture, it looks flat.

Keep on it

PS : Try to texture ur model in Grey scale with many contrast and put the color as final touch

ok thanks all of you for your crits it makes me work better

Prs-Phil i agree with all your suggestions

i planed to use a simple plan for the holyshine

also i think i'm going to redisign this char a little bit

Chris.F. good idea for the grayscale ( i think i'm gone to use this technik next time ) but it's just a wip

it's just the first step of texturing, i want to add veins and little details to make the skin more realistic and also contrast ....


work for an update....
Old 12 December 2004   #8
not finished yet but a good update for the time i have spend on it

i'm on the hand and the back

working also on seams not very easy with a model without clothes

i ve to add skin bump little veins, injuries ....

the legs doesn't work very well ( wip for the moment) because of deformations.

welcome everybody... for crits

Nice! It would have been cool to see the Zbrush version work out, but i think you've donw a great job witht the hand painted textures. i liked the red version a bit more though.

The contrast is interesting, but way too much in my opinion. It reminds me of something from early screenshots of Daikatana.

That is so nice, It would be even better to see a normal mapped version from your z-brush version. but still nice. keep it up.
I extend my hand out towards you, you grab it, then we shake and smile at each other, and from now on we are friends. :)

Nice work!!

Looking really nice man. You know how to pull out forms. The problem is that everything is at the same level of contrast. If you zoomed out to about 20 feet away, he would blend into a bunch of blobs. Try making a new layer in your texture set to soft light, and using only a black and a white brush, see if you can pull out his head and chest, and push back the legs and arms. Then collapse that layer down and do some painting to make those new values work better, but keep the overall contrast. That and you defantely should have a few smoother areas that are not so contrasty.

The quality is great, but on the muscles it looks like out of control GI. Try lighting the top part of the muscle and shading the bottom with only a little highlight in the middle.
