This is looking really cool man, i dig the style your going for! great concept art too. Is the face composed of separate pieces? (like the hair,mustache,eyebrows?)


(Gnaws) #7

The concept art was done by a very talented colleague of mine.

Yes, the face is composed of seperate elements. =]

Nice, always helps to have friends who are good 2d artists, im complete shit at 2d haha.

I look forward to the finished model man, I feel like creating a steampunk themed hot air balloon for the character!

Finished his neck, and now starting on his clothes…

I’m curious how you did the concept sketch. Was it all digital or did you scan something in?


(Gnaws) #12

@kastoria The concept art was done by a very talented colleague of mine who works by hand.

Thanks for looking!

lookin good man, cant wait for the finished version! How do you model clothes in blender? Ive tried duplicating faces but it scales weird


(Gnaws) #16

Thank you, Knives. I’m probably old skool, but I have the most control with poly modeling. Tho simple things like the bowtie, teeth and mustache were box modeled.

Cheers!
