Hey guys I am a 52 yr old fart and gonna prove you can teach an old dog new tricks. For xmas I got 3d max and zbrush so am going to try and do what I have always wanted to do and that is a 3D model and work into animating etc after I learn sculpting.
I have in my head what I am wanting, But pls let me explain my concept so that if you guys post feedback you don’t give feedback on what you think I am trying to do compared to what I am wanting to do if that makes sense.
Ok I am a huge fan of the Resident Evil series and Milla Jovovich BUT I am not doing her just using for inspiration. I want to do a unique Females Character Based off the Resident Evil Extenction Alice. For the most part I love the outfit she has there the t-shirt with the old fashioned mens long johns type layer then the pair of shorts then the Duster. something about that outfit just looks cool and has some attitude.
For the female character itself I have always loved the look of the strong jawed wide chinned irish redhead as seen in pic
- The problem is finding good reference photos. I came across pic 2 from Deviant art with free use on it so I cropped and edited the pictures for reference. the front view was cocked so I rotated it and it was slightly angled so I cut one side and mirrored it over and think I got a pretty good view out of it. Now a couple things don’t line up on the 2 views but it is only reference so I can get by. its mainly the eyes the front view and side view don’t line up but most everything below them do.
2: I am not going for an exact face sculpt as I am too new to this and prob couldn’t even get close. Instead I am just trying to learn the software and tools at this point. I want to use the images to give me the overall shape of the face as it appears to be close to what I am wanting from picture 1 with the need to bring the cheekbones out a little more than my ref pic.
So in a nutshell I will be doing a unique female with the strong jawed high cheekbone look and dressing her out in an outfit similar to Picture 3.
After I get going if I seem to be getting comfortable with what I am doing I may add to it. so please on your comments don’t think it is supposed to look like any of the pictures just look at the pictures for facial structure and when I get that far the way the clothing looks.
I am very thick skinned so don’t worry about hurting my feelings tell me like it is because the only way I will improve is by getting truly honest comments.
thanks and ps for now I just found a generic model in T-Pose off the web to start with and will go from there. I tried using Zbrush remesher tool but it really totally fubars the face so for now not going to mess with that lol
