Hi, This goes out to all modelers.
when building a realistic model of a man/woman where do you get your body reference? I know some people flip through magazines for front, side and 3/4 pics of peoples faces but when it comes to the body what do you do? I would like to have a perfect side, back and front profile of the human form. I’m inspired by the work of Steven Stahlberg and I’m amazed by how accurate his models seem to be. Do most of you just push and pull vertices till its just right, photograph the nude form, go by photos or drawings in some art instruction book or what? Just curious.
Here’s what I have to go by for right now. I drew this template of a woman for proportion and accuracy then I can do costume designs on top in photoshop. How do you guys start when realism is a priority?
