HMC #35: SPORTS IN MOTION!: Olympic Boxing


#1

Boxing has been one of my favorite sports since I was a little kid. Although, after watching the Olympics this year it was really hard to decide which sport to chose. I think something really good could come from any one of them.

Here is a look at my reference sheet. I’ll probably try and find some more photos and watch a few rounds, that way I get a good feel for what I want to end up with.

My plan going into this challenge is to do a diorama. I wont be trying to capture anyone’s likeness, I’m going to try and capture a particular moment.


#2

Just spent a little bit of time watching recordings of this year’s Olympic boxing replays. These are some quick sketches I took from the videos. Hopefully these will help me find the right moment to pick for my diorama.


#3

Hey splinter, just wanted to give you a heads up, I’m going to be doing the exact same thing, olympic style boxing. When I saw the theme for this months HCM, boxing was the first thing that came to mind.
Good luck, cant wait to see what pose you pick.


#4

Awesome! I can’t wait to see your work as well. I think there are so many great routes to go with Olympic boxing. I’ve been a little side tracked with other things at the moment, but hopefully I’ll have some thing to show here soon.

Good luck, and thank you :slight_smile:


#5

Started working on the base for my boxers


#6

You have very long arm… is it normal?


#7

No, your absolutely right. I didn’t pay as much attention to proportions as I should have. The next pass is definitely going to have to be proportion adjustments. Each time I look at it I feel like the legs are a little short too.

Thank you for the heads up.


#8

Use references plans. it’s easy and you get your proportion quick


#9

I’m not going to lie I can be a little stubborn (“lazy” lol) when it comes to using references. After working with proportions a little here’s what I have.


#10

Slow moving, but I am glad there is finally some progress to show today. Here is one of the boxing shoes.


#11

Here is my progress so far. I’m getting ready to pose with zrigging. After the initial posing I’ll add details such as wrinkles in the clothes and so on.


#12

Starting on the pose for the first boxer.


#13

My boxers finally come together.

Working on the boxing ring. Hopefully I’ll have more time for everything all together this weekend.


#16

The weekend is finally here. Hopefully now I can put in some work on this Diorama. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I’m still pretty confident even though I only have a couple more days.

Here is a look at everything so far.

Cool scene. Going to look great with some real lighting. Keep up!


#18

So it doesn’t look like I’m going to meet the deadline. Part of me is upset about that, but I think it’s ok. I still learned a lot, and I’m going to try out some new approaches. Hopefully I can speed up my production.

Here is a model of the Bell.

A few additions to the arena.

Here is an attempt at lighting.

I’m not going to meet the deadline, but I do still want to finish this up and see what it looks like completed :slight_smile:

Good luck to everyone else who has taken the challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with.
