HCR MINI-Challenge #37: Femme Fatale!- Airflow: Catwoman/Hepburn


#1

O’k, against better judgment I decided to enter. I will be doing a Catwoman ala Audrey Hepburn mash-up. I will post the basemesh later.
Not sure if I will do a new image or one based on artwork from Adam Hughes.

Reference.

Ah you’ll find the time. Aught to be fun with such a cool subject.


#3

interesting image to make, have fun.


#4

interesting…


#5

Thanks guys. I decided to block out all of the images, but will start with three images in 3dsmax.
These three.



Will post Blocks shortly.


#6

Blok 01

Gotta do some light tweaks and a few fixes on the arms, then onto the next one.


#7

nice choice, you got some good reference images. Are you gonna move onto zbrush/mudbox after you finishing blocking out or are you modeling it all in the 3dsmax?


#8

Will model base meshes in 3dsmax and possibly rig and do cloth dyn there. Then sculpt in zbrush, and back into 3dsmax.


#9

The blocking out will not be the base meshes. It just to get a feel for the piece. More like a lighting exercise, with stand in objects. I will be modelling up a t-pose (basemesh) character to animate into position, then doing cloth simulation to try to get wrinkles where I need them when she moves.
Finally I will do a sculpt pass to add small details and control wrinkles and what not, which will go into a displacement map. Last I will add snow and enviroment effects.

Found a Catwoman statue which may end up as a middle ground for all the images. I could have her scaling a slate rooftop with the bat signal behind her, with snow falling.Combining all the images together. Would be a nice mashup. If I have time I may do a Batman Sillouette object like in the image with the ruby.

Any thoughts on what you would like to see?


#10

Small update. Will try to do the others tomorrow, and get the mashup image out tomorrow too. Then a head and neck sculpt of Audrey. Hope to start that tomorrow night.


#11

Latest update, very rushed due to impatient gf who takes up all the spare time my job does not. Loved but frustrating. :slight_smile:
I would say 10 percent done.
Anyway, will try to have more to show tomorrow.


#12

Had a bit more time to get it looking better proportioned.
Once I am back from france - (gf’s romantic weekend), I will finalise the head and
get started on the body.


#13

Don’t rub it in too much. :smiley:

Her cheeks look too wide and her nose should be a bit narrower (I think). A little tough to see from this angle.


#14

Thanks. Will tweak those points you mentioned thanks.


#15

Just got back from France . Was good, walked up the Eiffel Tower , and visited nearly every building in Paris . V tired. Hopefully there will be updates on Monday night. Cheers guys.


#16

nice idea. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

I see a resemblance coming! at the moment the eyes are a tad big compared to the ref. Good luck :slight_smile:


#17

Cheers, Eyes to be smaller. Will get some time to work on it tonight, been in a rush all last week so never really had more than about 3-4 hours on the head.


#18

Managed to get an hour and decided to block out the body in parts, starting with the bust from a cube.


#19

Small Update.


#20

Bit more done. Still blocking stuff out.
