Dylan - Anime character

Well, Im making this guy for a freelance work of a small project. Basically, the limitations are 5k tris max, and a couple of textures for diffuse i believe. Its gonna be kinda cartoon shaded to resemble anime :P

Anyways, im kinda hoping you guys can help me out with the topology, where i could work on it, and where i could add more polys.

Its 3864 tris atm.

This is a small test I made for proportions just painting a screeny of the model *later changed the proportions just a bit

C&C Welcome!

well seeing as you have quite some left...

I would suggest putting some more in the deformable areas (knees/ ankles/ shoulders/ elbows) what you have now seems quite minimal and I think the characters is going to be animated that'll make rigging/skinning a little easier

And second you would probably put a little more roundness in the trousers and maybe one or two major folds in the puffy parts of the clothing.

Right now I see no poly deficiencies and the above points will make the end result that much better I believe.

I hope this helped and confirmed your suspicions. Greetings!

THanks matsman! I decided to add more polys to some areas like the arms and legs, and removes some extra polys on the back of his head. Also added the bag,belt and some details. Ill see if I add an extra line of polys to the knee area and elbow area. Thanks for the crit!

New update 19/04/2009

Listened to you guys and decided to put more loops on his deformation areas, took some polys out, some in, etc. Also, moved the arms a bit higher since i noticed the neck looked weird. I think its uv time. c&c welcome!

Nice work.

My advice would be towards your pipeline. It's only a small thing, but work in larger areas on the texture. For example, you've put work into the face, and shoulders, but not even a base colour on the rest of the body.

You should lay down a primitive set of colours first all over the character, so you can see how the colour scheme works as one. This is important as a 2D concept image colour scheme may look right, however you may decide that you want the chest/neck area to actually be blue, which means more work changing colours later in the texture creation.

All the best with the model.

If at first quads don't succeed, tri tri again.

Well, heres a small update i havent been able yto work on it cuz of a lot of freelance stuff, but here's a bit ^^

Worked on the textures a bit, just mainly sketching out forms and color, and afterwards, im gonna get everything detailed down

Keep in mind, this is gonna be kind of celshaded, so i have to mantain a really simplistic texture. C&C welcome

Chillipunk: Thx for the crit. I agree with you on the color base of the whole model ^^ Thing is, for that texture update i made it in about 15 mins before going to sleep, so i dont think it was that bad of an idea, heh
