HMC 8: Blade


#1

Hi everyone! When I saw this challenge I decided to hop in, this is my very first post in here at CGTalk. I’ve been hanging around here at the forums for a while now. There’s so much talented artists here, so I felt a bit scared to post anything earlier.

My choise is: Blade - Wesley Snipes

I will be using blender for modelling him.

Nice to meet you all!

ok, here’s an update

The eyes was a bit hard to model, because Blade wears sunglasses in most of the reference pictures I used. I’ll find some pictures of Snipes as himself, so I can get the eyes look right. The neck is still a total mess I’ll fix it as well. C&C are welcome

a little update. I changed the hairstyle to match the hairstyle Blade had in the first movie, and did some other little changes.


#7

a little update. I started to model the upper body. I’ll propably just make a bust, so I modelled the arm that way. The upper body and the neck still needs tons of fixing to make it look right. I also need to clean the mesh a little, but I don’t really like cleaning…so I do it later


#8

Wow, that is looking really great. I will be following this thread as well.

#12

nice start and meshflow


#13

Thank you all for the kind words :slight_smile:

I made a little test to see how does he look when the both sides are together.

There’s still lots to do. I’m not sure yet if I should model his eyebrows and facial hair, but I just might do that to see how he’d look then


#14

This is looking great even without textures. What program are you useing?


#15

Thanks, I’m using Blender. I’ll post an update soon as soon as I got some time to do some modelling.


#16

Here’s the update

There’s no subsurf on, and I’m sorry for the colors they look a bit funny.
Started to do the jacket and did the undershirt. I’ll start modelling on the vest he wears in the movie when I got time.


#17

Now I started to work on the skin texture


#18

Wow, this is looking really good. AND it’s really cool you are using blender.


#19

Update on the skin. I still have some problems with the eyebrowns
