It seems heads are popular things to model here. I’ve tried a couple times, and have never gotten very good results. Tonight I decided to try a technique I’ve used with other modellers (Pixels3d, Infini-D) and modelled the head using Nurbs in blender.
I know it’s not a very good head but believe it or not, it’s the BEST head I’ve ever done, and it’s done with Nurbs, not mesh editing. Also, it was FAST!!! the whole thing took me about 1.5 hours (on the generous side. 50 minutes is the least time, but i didn’t really time it. just by how many CD’s i went through while modelling )
Also, I’ve never seen any blender tutorials for Head modeling with Nurbs. Has anyone else tried to do a head with Nurbs? what kind of results did you get?
and here’s a screenshot of the Nurb editor:
The only MAJOR disadvantage to using blender’s nurbs that I’ve found is that it’s not easy to close the ends off, you get “streaking” and “stretching” (I forget the technical term…) of the model near the attempted closing. I haven’t found a button that properly closes the nurbs. At either end. So I guess my head will have to wear a hat --> :Z
