    Broken Shadows Portrait, Grunge theme (.blend included)


    Reduced in size, check attachment for bigger version.


    Hey guys

    Finally I have one of my portrait themes done. I'm planning to do a few themes, and hopefully improving with each.

    Any C&C welcome guys. I wonder if this is good enough for the gallery thread ... hint-hint

    Thanks
    Len

    For other themes and updates please visit my WIP thread:
    http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=97805

    ************

    EDIT 6 May'08:
    I made a 360 degrees rotation movie clip of this for my website. If anyone wants to have a look you can check it at Youtube here.

    or download the better quality movie (just under 5mb) here.
    *************



    ___________________

    Here's the .blend for ya. Any suggestions and improvements, especially on the particle hair welcome guys. You'll notice the skin texture is quite rough (especially the top, back of the head, and ears), I was able to get away with it because of the dark theme. I intend to still improve on it.

    I reduced it to 2000px. Original was 8000px. Also please note that it's incomplete and quite rough. But the entire face area is there. I did some work on the right eye, and cloned in the rest of the skin and cloned out the hair for the Grunge theme. But unfortunately I flatenned those layers as I went. Hope this helps guys.

    Very nice! The only improvement I can think of, is to make the eyes more glossy, it was the first thing to give it away when I looked at it

    Nice work
    Signature pending..

    Excellent job! If I had to find a flaw, i'd say the mouth looks a bit too asymmetrical, but honestly its great as is. I've gotta find the rest of your work now!

    *edit*
    hahah, i just checked ur WIP thread and saw that someone told you to make the lips more asymmetrical! hahah, well i guess your good either way. The other guy is probably more qualified anyways

    That is the best head render I have ever seen in Blender, period. Awesome work.

    Textures are fantastic, except for the tattoo. Looks a bit low res in the large render.

    I will take a look at that Blend file later. Thanks for sharing.

    Although I'm not a fan of this kind of thing, I still appreciate the detail you put in. Nice textures.

    spacestrudel: Thanks dude! I hope it makes the gallery

    Claws: Thanks hey I'd like to get the eyelashes to reflect in the eyes, I think that might also improve the glossy look, if anyone knows how to make the particle lashes reflect please let me know!

    Pash: Thanks man

    free_ality: 5 stars! Yay! thanks man.

    venar303: Hehe yes, I tried to give him a slight smile/grin. I think next time I must model in some dimples/cheek movement at the one corner of the mouth then it might look more realistic. Thanks for your comments hey

    Hippie: Thanks man, it's a pleasure!

    BgDM: WOW! Thanks hey, that's best compliment I got in a long time You're right about the resolution of the tattoo, I was meant to still redraw and clean it up, but got lazy It's very low res. I think I might fix that up and then just update the renders here.

    Jeepster & Oboenerd: Thanks hey guys

    Just for interest sake here's a render of the same with the make-up and tattoos removed. Now I also noticed a few more things, like the eyelashes that's too short, and the bump on the lips I think is too high. I hope to improve on all these things on my next portrait

    It really is a very successful piece you've made here. The face looks great and the facial hair (including eyebrows) has been very well executed. the nose and ear though seems to be just a bit behind the rest of the face... maybe too simple in form or just needing a couple verts pushed or pulled. again though, overall the the face is great.
    The one thing that distracts me about the portrait is the earring color or shade really. They stand out as the darkest part of the entire picture. more so than the pupils, top corner, dark city bg, or even eyeshadow. It pulls my eyes to the left of the head instead of giving focus to the face.

    great work, 4*

    What i really like is the expression on the face. Textures look good too. Maybe the eyelashes could need some refinement. But overall great work.

    And thanks for sharing your files.

    dmancrosse: Thanks hey, I think I understand what you mean but not quite entirely, do you mean there shoulda been more light on the ear and earrings? I think it might be because of the slight AO I used, without it the entire left side is very dark if I remember correctly. The angle of the head render also makes the nose look a bit odd methinks. I must agree with you on that. Thanks for your comments hey.

    Dr.Colossus: Thanks man, I tried to give him a slight mischievous expression. it's a pleasure (re sharing).

    Heads up guys, I fixed the low res tattoo (as pointed out by BgDM) and reworked it just a tad. Added links for the updated diffuse map to download on the first post. Updated the renders as well.

    Cheers

    Hey Juggler! Thanks man! I want to do a normal portrait that looks more like the real me, a "AI" (Steven Spielberg) theme with the back half of the head being robot/droid, and a Lord Of The Rings Elf. Maybe also a "Fight Club" theme.

    But to be honest at the moment I'm so sick of looking at this face You know when you stare at something for too long then you almost don't see it anymore ... to trick my mind I've mirrored it, flipped it upside down and sideways, made it black and white you name it I think I'll put it on ice for the moment and work on something else, I'd like to do a nice looking girl.
