Hi all,
I started a new personnal project : Origins.
This work is largely inspired by the mini-serie ORIGINS.


There're lots of work about wolverine, this is the most popular Marvel hero...
I don't think i can reach the quality of Pierre Bourgeot (=BLACKNULL=) 's wolverine but i'll try to do a very expressive character. Regards Pierre...


What i want is to catch the moment when the young Logan becomes wolverine, just a suffuring man with lot of pain and anger. The same anger that makes him become a beast and show his bones claws.
The scene takes place before WeaponX, so no metal claws and no yellow licra.



Hope you will like it and sorry for my poor english.


Here is his head model and textured with a fist attempt with fur.


Crits & comment are very welcome.

Nice going so far but I think his eyes are too wide apart. Keep it up

Thanks for advise Junerahe.

I'll try to move the eyes closer, but think i will lose the beasty look...
I think that kepping the eyes wide apart makes his scream more painfull. Don't you think so ?

Here is a little update.

I work on the fur parameters and think that it's now good (the left side of his head)

Tweak the head texture, this texture need more work...

Hi folks
Yesterday i change the method to render his Beard. Leave the texture and use Hair.

I think the effect is better when the surface is perpendicular to the point of view => darker.
Please let me know which is the best : Black point texture or HAIRS ?

I like your interpretation of wolverine, but Its hard to visualize this head as woleverine without the hair style. IMO the mouth is a bit wide, probably due to the eyes also being too far apart.

Thanks for advice OptimusDinkus, but I don't know what AFS is...

As everyone think they are too wide appart, I'll try this week end to put the eyes closer without losting the "animal" look.

This is awesome. I love it. You've got the creature look down perfectly and still you model looks more real and expressive than 90 percent of what I've seen on this site. Eyes and mouth are perfect as they are. They've obviously been modeled like that for a reason. An artist needs to know and master the "rules", but also know when and how to leave them behind.

Can't wait to see the body that goes with this. Keep it up!

has a good feel to it. His eyes need to be more dialated or something. More red eyes. How bout those features though. I do like the distortion of the face in that it looks like he's getting blasted with wind or something, but I think for a relaxed pose those distortion would have to be more subtle. But right on man. good stuff.

I like the expression. I know it's been said a few times before already, but it's still bugging me that the eyes are so far apart. I would bring the eyes together so it looks natural, and use his eyebrows and expression to make him look more beast-like if that is what you want. Otherwise, people will continue to ask 'why are his eyes so far apart?'

Good job so far.

Hi BicKet,

He looks really furious (maybe can he drool like a pitbull ). Think you should continue with the body before tuning Hairs and detais. The whole character will guide you to the right expression...

Anyway, keep on with that good job.
Wait for the body and the pose you will choose for him.
