Red face The most handsome warrior of Planet norahs...

Hi all! Been busy at work recently on low poly character stuffs.... getting bit of bored of blocky characters...

So after quite some time of resting, decided to get back to work on a high res character model during my free time for my own leisure & portfolio. This creature will have a body physique quite similar to a human man, but will try something different later to make it look more alienated. Didn't do any initial sketch on this cos it's own work & I wanted to let my imagination run free while modeling it. Will eventually rig it & animate. But that might be few months later cos I usually do this during weekends... & also bcos I'm enjoying every single stage of the creation so kind of slow... Hope posting my WIP here can get me up to work faster on this.

Feel free to voice your views. Still at its very initial stage.
Here's my progress(modeling) so far:
=> head = 95%
=> front body = 50%

the rest are still very much undone.










Thanks in advance.

Another tiny update on the front torso.. can't seem to be satisfied with the muscles, so further tweaking on it. Almost done for the front, back next.. So far, comments anyone?

i think it's a real improvement comparing to your man model. the body is defined better but you could make it more organic. the head seems to me in it's early stage, think it sould be more defined, and for presentation i prefer the gray material.

keep it up

Thanx smaddl! Agreed with what u've mentioned here, your comments are invaluable to me The head is almost done though... leaving the ear & some finetuning on the eye lids. Maybe I'll work more on the head later. Moving at a slow rate.., but will try to work this model out faster.

Would love to hear more from those experts out there, better if u have suggestions about this creature's physique, cause I'm no great concept guy..

RealCapri,

Compared with some of the pros here, I'm nowhere near an expert. If I may make a suggestion, though...

You may have to alter the torso a bit, possibly curve the upper spine a bit more(?).

(I look at him and get the impression that he's craning his neck severely to see something.)

To me, visually, the head seems to be too small & too far ahead of the body for a resting pose, and the two as of now, don't read to me as one being.

Possibly also altering the torso's body proportions in relation to the head to make him look both more alien and all of one piece.

The torso is wonderfully done, though.

Can we please see wires?

(I think I learn more from studying wires than anything else on this board...! )

Hope these comments help in some way...

my only comment on the torso is the pectoral muscle that hes got might be a pit pointy towards the nipple. also his eyeball would fall out of the socket if thats the size of eye cavity he has, he needs alot more cranium a common mistake among many art pieces.

Thanx The Laughing Vulcan, yumtom, Mik2121, OptimusDinkus.

The Laughing Vulcan - I purposely create the small head in contrast with his huge body just for the sake of fun & impact probably I really strain his head too far out.. haha... will show the wires later when i got home.. cos now in office.

yumtom - too much anabolicum? Not by his own will though... I forced him to.. LOL

Mik2121 - I intended to make him the good guy, so dun be deceived by his looks, he's nice.

OptimusDinkus - Thanx man! Ur works are fantastic. The eyeball were actually much bigger than the "opening", probably that's bcos the buldging iris made it look smaller than it is.. will further work on the eye lid though, really needs more work on the head.

i still think you could add more definition to the head, it is'nt clear yet, and forming more structure to it . wire looks very nice. keep updating

Smile what software are you using?

Can i know what software are u using?
and can you show me the wire frame before you make it smooth?
I like the body of this creature, but the head looks wierd to me, as in the head and the body doesn't match.
Thanks a lot~~
