Obama


#1

OK not to get political here, I just wanted to celebrate
an important event in history, which is the first black president of the United States.
with a little humor and respect of course.

Well. since I'm not that good with pencil & paper :D 
  I asked Greg Halbert if I could use his Obama's Caricature as reference for my 3d model
  and after a few minutes I got his authorization. 
  You can check out his great work at [www.greghalbert.com](http://www.greghalbert.com) 
  
                           



                                     **************** Last update ****************

Testing some camera angles in order to decide which way to go…

Suggestions are more than welcome mates.

more

now I’m working some details in Mudbox


#4

Brilliant, wonder how long it would take to do Obama, but a caricature is a great idea and a great start, love the grin


#5

Everything looks great! But the fingernails look to be too deep! It looks like it hurts!


#6

Thanks for your comments but not to worry, nails are not there yet! :smiley:


#7

i think you placed the mole a little too high. other than that, I cannot wait to see the result.


#8

really hope you’re going to put him in that little cart, with his knees up round his ears.

great looking model so far


#9

hehehe that’s the idea so far, still that kart needs a lot of work, 'cause I want it to fit better
with the Obama Style, you know I’ll make it look more cartoonist and stuff, I’m not sure
yet about the pose I’ll make though. :stuck_out_tongue:

anyway thanks for your comments.

Cheers! :beer:

Sculpting Gum & Teeth in Mudbox


#11

This is turning out really good!


#12

Man this is awesome. I love it. Great stuff is happening here, man. I also appreciate the screens of the teeth. Teeth are one of those areas I have issues modeling, but seeing them done like this might make it easier.


#13

WTF ? dude you’re very imaginative :smiley: keep up the good work, I want to see the full render already !!


#14

OK I know these are basic modeling techniques but I also know there are lots of folks out there that may find it useful. that’s why I took the time. Cheers! :beer:


#15

Just testing materials here, still a lot of work to be done with the kart.


#16

I really like this project, and I really like the material on the body of the kart. Have you put a material on that side panel yet? It just looks a bit off.


#17

Nice one, keep it going.


#18

Thanks for your comments folks.

NFarland: you’re right, at first it looked like a reflection thing, but I’m guessing
it’s an Edge turn issue, I’ll chek it out tomorrow, too late for me now, bed time! :smiley:

Cheers!


#19

Thanks for pointing that out, I’ll take a look.


#20

Back on track now, at this point I’m Adding all the details to the cloth.
