I’ve started my brand new character project. I don’t know how I’m ever going to be able to do this, but I’ve decided to make Indiana Jones for a short film. I’m actually surprised at the start that I got off too.
This will be my first attempt at creating a 3D character that is a real person. I’ll just pretend I’m doing one of my sketches(which I haven’t done in over a year). Maybe that’ll make it easier. I’m almost afraid to texture him, though my mobster didn’t turn out all that bad. We’ll see. Anyway, feel free to crit what I have so far.
nico: Haha it does kinda look like Sean Penn. I miss that guy. Anyway, I’m working on the texture so I’ll have something to see, then I’ll go back and work on the model, then I’ll go back and work on the texture.
Robin: Yes, I know. I also have to make his cheeks more straight down. Well, I don’t know how to explain it, but you’ll see.
The part I think I need to work on the most is the eyes. That’s usually the first thing people look at anyway. Thanks everyone.
Here’s another update. It’s no spitting image, but at least it doesn’t look like Sean Penn anymorw(I hope). It’s definetely my best face to date, and I’m not even done yet. Well, here’s the update. I still didnt fix the cheeks yet.
Hey, this ImageShack thing is REALLY starting to annoy me, every time i want to see a pic, it takes me to their… , i don’t know what it is but it is not the image, it’s some start up page, to post your own image… is there a link i’m missing or what… Please someone help cause most of the people around post their images on this host, and i can’t see them in most of the cases…
Does anyone else has this problem, or i’m a jackass
Here is the link that it takes me to: http://imageshack.us/
For the record, i got the internet conection about a month ago, but i’ve used it before (the ineternet), so i’m definately not a noob to it…I’m using Firefox, is there a setting that can make it not to display images???..(but i don’t think this is the problem because i can see images on other sites…)
By the way, that Grand Moff Tarkin model was incredible. Do you know what software he used to do that? Not that it matters; I’m sure just as good results can be achieved in Blender. Ok, now I’m going to get down to some serious work on the eyes.
Ok I’ve worked on the eyes a lot. It’s still doesn’t look like Ford, but it looks more like him. That’s what I’m going for. If it looks more like him every time, then eventually it will be pretty close. I havent worked much on the jaw. That still needs a lot of work. I realized I had the upper portion of the head up too high, so I lowered it. I do this this with my eyes: I set the render next to the reference image and move my eyes back and forth across it, and it tricks my brain into seeing different parts moving(like if the eyes were too big, it would look like the eyes were getting bigger and smaller). I’m sure everyone can do it, but I still think it’s cool. So anyway, I’m posting now because I’m gonna go take a break and play guitar for a little while.
