character: Basketball Girl


#1

Here’s a project I did for work, I used max 5 and photoshop. The only compositing was putting a more lit girl over a darker background.

The quality of the picture is pretty low. But from what i can tell it just looks like you threw a picture on a lowpoly character. Around the face it it painfully obvious.
Of course maybe i’m wrong, and your just really really good at texturing. A higher res image would help.

I think she is well done, but her face looks like a picture (as in it was pasted on there). It looks kinda like a game model, I dunno if thats what you were going for or not.

i think u should work more on your body proportion, well that’s what i think. i like ure texture, good job:)


#5

here’s a closeup of her face, sorry jfor the low quality of the image but i think we’re still limited to under 20k:surprised


#6

don’t scare me like that!

that face, sorry to say is quite erie looking, looks like mina suvari from the full bod shot, but up close looks like a pyscho biotch

you should try to make her look a little cuter by, uh, reposing her face
she looks like she’s gonna eat somebody

otherwise, everything looks pretty good for the quality of the pics:applause: :wip:

haha… ye i got quite a fright too when that popped up…

I agree her face is a bit unnerving… (the eyes is what gets me especially)… that expression is quite hard though… i find broad smiles very hard to get pleasant looking without looking scary or weird… I think the trick to it may lie in the lighting (and eyes as well).

nice work though :applause:


#8

Wow, scary face. I dont think the red coloured eyes help either, and the grin on her face needs to be fixed.


#9

Freaky as hell! I was bit sleepy but that image woke me up good.

It reminds me of victims from the Batman movie(the one with Joker)


#10

I don’t see what are you all complaining about… but what I DO SEE is a quite strange THING on his hair … is that a tiara?

First though it was a trick to cover alpha-mapped hair, but then realised she doesn’t need such trick… so what it is?


#11

Mmm Strange clothes to make basketball. But anyway, the modelling seems good but she has a face of silly girl… Try to work on the texturing…:rolleyes:

Nice work, on modelling anyway.:beer:


#12

Hm - i dont think the face is scary - its good to see an unusual looking smile - its different to the majority of CG these days.
One thing i’d change is the lighting or the shader on her eyes - she looks like she’s ‘underwater’ or something - yknow, like a matt look to her eyes…
If she had brighter and shinier eyes it might eliminate the ‘scary’ problem and maker her look cute instead.
If people are saying it looks like a photo (with jpeg compression) then take it as a massive compliment!
Keep at it!

You can upload more than 20k at theforumisdown.com… Now 50k still isnt that much, but its better than posting highly compressed pics like this :slight_smile:

I actually think the face is preety good, The hair is the main problem. Just relax the smile a bit and it will be even better.


#15

Here she is again, this is actually a more of a close up on the far shot.
Thanks so much for the critz. I’m going off some references from a gril and ahe is actually smiling that way. I get the scary comment quite often on my work. If you guys could please help me nail down what i’m doing to make them look that way, i’d appreciate it.

#16

I like it but Maybe round the shoulders a bit more, and relax the smile a tad.:slight_smile:


#17

Just a thought about the crazed look that everyone keeps mentioning: Try closing the eyes a little. Usually when someone
smiles broadly, their eyes start to squint a little. In contrast, a smile with wide-open eyes tends to have that psycho look.

Thanks guys i’ll try it and post soon.

very true, and the improvement was nice, but it looks like she put too much powder on her cheeks, nose and chin
darken those areas or change the lights a little, just an opinion
the eyebrows also look a little smudgy, but that may be the resolution

much much better tho

I’d like to see her try to play basketball in those shoes.
