This is my first time at character building. Fingers crossed.
I found a cool Lightwave tutorial a long time ago with these turn around reference images, and I would provide a link if I could find it again. You can see on the backgrounds they are by a guy named Rich Suchy.
I’m doing the basic build up with extrudes, adding polys where some extra smoothing is needed, and later I will sub-surf divide the entire thing.
Here are some WIP pics.
Once the subsurf is done, I use the original vertices as handles to pull the new mesh into shape. Otherwise it looks like an alien autopsy.
I may have questions as I go along. And yes, before anyone asks, I will add toes. I’m focused on basic shapes first.
P.S. - No spelling nazis!
