Lovely Work mate ,I like the character alot , my only crit is that the skin looks alittle pale maybe a more saturated tone will look better


thanks mate! You’re right, I’ll remember that on next renders :wink:


Eyelids and eyebrows deformation.

It’s almost ready to extract the blend shapes and attach to my Facial GUI.

Stunning work so far. I really like the idea of working with a proxy and then modeling highpoly after. Keep up the good work, I’ll definitely be following your progress!


thanks pollos. Glad you liked!


Hi guys, a quick update.
This time I’d like to show you the final version of the rigging and the wip of Facial Rigging. It’s a pretty simple rig:

  • Stretch/Squash spine.
  • Arms and Legs w/ IK.
  • Basic muscles deformation
  • Shoulders/Elbows bone correction

hi guys,
this is the final proxy animation and final mesh deformation



Great job! i like the eyelids, they move very natural. So if i see it correctly you model the face with his eyes closed and then attach joints or clusters to the eyelids?



yes jonathankrijgsman, the eyelids are skinned to the joints :wink:


So, I work on Locco Martinez only 30min/day and this is my 30min jaw skinning progress.
It’s very flexible, I must say…



Awesome work! I like the proxy modeling method that you use, I might have to adopt that. I’m really impressed with this character as a whole. Its cool to see a character going through all the different steps to get ready for animating. You are an amazing artist. God Bless.


Hi guys!

This is my 30min. Eyeslids/Jaw skin.
Only bones and skin weights, no blend shapes.

Almost there!
Final stage: Face Skinning!
