Hey everyone, once again I’ve done some more work and finally finished my model after about a month due to some lazyness by me and other things I’ve been doing. So far this is what I have for the main character and the colors are just materials being used as an example of what colors I want to use. Idk why but the color black appeals to me a lot and makes my character seem more male. Some friends and family thought my character looked too “feminine” because of its anime/chibi style. I did my best to make it less curvy from the reference I used and I added some light muscle to the model. The hair is basic because he will always use a hood. Everything in the model is all together except for the hair and hoodie. I’m not sure if I have to combine everything together and connect it or if I can keep them separate?
Please any feedback on what you might think is great, maybe I could fix some things before I go into texturing, rigging and animation. I did my best to portray exactly what I wanted the character to look like which I wish I can post a concept but I rather show the model itself.
Some more info:
-the model is male
-the hair and hood are separate objects compared to the rest
-the topology which I wish I could show is built so it can animate
-the character is a variation of chibi and an actual character, I tried to not make it a small chibi like maplestory as an example.
-There is no eye texture yet which I think will be better because you wont see the eyes much and it saves me from adding more poly’s.
-the model’s high poly(last pic, smooth one) consist of 105,000 tri’s while the low poly consist of 6154 tri’s.
-the model will be used in side scrolling perspective so you will see it from the side like 2d games.
Some things I’m not too sure about is should I model the sword with this model too or separate? the reason I ask is because I plan to make attack animations and what not. I’m using the unity engine btw so please any help or thoughts would be great on how it looks so far and what I can maybe improve. This is gonna be my first game and model and I hope that I can keep on building up to be able to land a job someday even though I know a lot of companies don’t use blender I still feel confident. I hope I didn’t do a bad job though I wish I was a pro but I have so much to learn.
