First post:

Previous night i've decided to give it a try to model Mr. Willis. (no i don't give up my leonidas model)
 I  usually don't prefer box modeling. This time, without worrying about topology i choose it for basemesh.  Except that low poly basemesh, i've used Zbrush to sculpt the model. It's hard to maintain the proportions in zbrush but i've tried my best =) 
 I'll continue the model after retopologize it.
 
 
 Here is the current progress:

Yes, its a good likeness already, judging by your portfolio work I’m sure this will turn out great :slight_smile:


#4

thanks for the comments guys =)

i’ve retopologized the mesh and worked on the likeness.
he became a bit old because of the refs i’ve used =)
i’ll make him younger on next update.

here is the current progress:

Hello ,i like a lot your old guy character in your portofolio so i think this Bruce will be a special one pice like that…for the moment i think you could work a little more to the looklike …look good but with all references you can get for a simple normal Bruce Willis expression, you can do better…Good luck!


#6

hmm…somewhere in between the last 2 updates you lost bruce…hope you can find him…lol…keep at it this one should be good


#7

tigertiger, thanks so much for nice words. I’ll try to do my best.

The proportions became a bit off (because of some wrong reference choise) but the main problem of the model is eyes which i couldn’t work much. i’ll work on the likeness some more, before i go with the upper body for the bust.

robo, thanks so much. You are right about losing the likeness. I hope i can make the model look like better when it’s finished.

Here is a small update about proportions, and the wire of the model:

Is looking good for now but you can work more on the eyes (the part that is covering the upper eyelids ) and face shape ( i think the jaw is the first part you can improve).
I’ll keep an eye on your thread to see more updates :slight_smile:

hey dude, very good model! i bet your entry will be one of the best ones. keep going :wink:


#11

misu: Thanks Mihai! Love your works! As i look at your old bruce willis model, i see that mine is far away to be bruce yet. I get the points that you wrote, i’ll work more on those areas.

Binder: Thanks mate! I know it’s far away to be Bruce now, but i promise it’ll be at least stunt lookalike of bruce at the end =)

AlperGONEN: Thanks Alper! There are lots of great artists with great entries. I’ll try my best.

Here is the update:

turx, great model! I think you can give a more full, or round quality to some details, to make it more organic, and more young too

I’ll keep an eye on this thread :slight_smile:

Cheers!

great model ! i think that there is a problem with the eyes. i am not sure but they go out of the face.

:applause:


#15

Now he’s really coming together!


#16

hey he’s starting to come back now…lol…good work…

and thanks again WhileYouWereArt for that Bruce pic…lol


#17

I think it looks good… it still looks like bruce but the lips I think are a bit off… not sure what it is(maybe it’s the smirk you put in there) it just doesn’t fit him… I thought the lips were good the way they were before… but that’s just me.


#18

Hi all.
Thanks for replies and critiques!

It’s going slowly but i’ll work on it to make the likeness better with the help of the points you’ve mentioned.

Here is an update; not a big one, just made him younger, modelled the rest of the bust and started the hair. Likeness still needs more work (especially the eyelids).

I didn’t work on the topology of body, because his undershirt will cover most of it.

Here is a ~2MB, 360° turnaround quicktime of current stage. (Mpeg4 codec)
