Hi, all. I decided to participate in Blending Life contest in Category B. Ultraviolet is a movie character (info on IMDB) and I am using actress Milla Jovovich as my reference. This is what I did so far.
I plan to model and texture whole body (with clothes) and make a nice action pose. I have collected about 60 reference pics of Milla from the movie and pics from other movies and modelling, so I hope I will make it look good.
I’ve heard very bad things about this film The modeling looks like its off to a good start though, like Felix said the eyes look a bit large but I think you’ve done well on the front face proportions. Looking forward to more!
I was busy doing something else last few days, but here is an update. I had been tweaking the model mainly. I have also made some changes on the chest. I am not going to much in detail, because there will be clothing on it.
No textures, folds and other small details yet. 288 000 vertices at this time. I am going to model rest of the jacket, then hands. After that I will have whole base mesh modelled and I will make a pose and make all the small details. Texturing will be done in the end. I will also make some changes in scene lighting.
OK. I have a rigging nightmare during this weekend :). Finally, I was able to make a pose. I have added many secondary lights to make the final render look more interesting.
Final modelling phase will be folds on the jacket, boots ,etc. Texturing will be much faster - right now I am doing some tests with Blender procedural textures an I think it will suffice for some clothing parts (I have a slow PC, so I am not able to draw big resolution textures ). The skin texture for face and body will be done in GIMP.
Here are newest screens (no hair, no texturing yet)
