I tried to do one myself when I was a real noob that looked awful, but yours is nice. Maybe make some more wrinkles on the clothes.

That’s a nice start.
Will you add a face or just some glowing red eyes ?

working on the face now and glowing eyes thanks might add some more in the torso area not enough there i dont think thanks

That looks wonderful! Nothing else I can really crit, may we see a wire? :slight_smile:

I think your head look to friendly, maybe yo try to do a friendly looking reaper, but I think it would be much cooler if it was evil. So here is a tut (for Max, pretty hard) on how to make an evil looking skull http://67.15.36.49/team/Tutorials/dead_twice/deadtwice_01.asp

ok thanks for that i dont want him to look friendly ill have a crack at this thanks

Good model! The only thing I don’t like is the arms. They look like icicles or stalactites (those mineral deposites in caves).

Also, I think he would look meaner if his skull wasn’t smiling as much.
Other than that it’s all good. :slight_smile:

ok heres an update made a few tweaks to the clothing and i made the face a little less happier tell me what you think

Scary. So that’s good for you.
I like the clothes.
Keep going.
(that was a constructive post)

He looks a bit short , look at your avatar he is huge, allso i think the cloth is a bit thick, whenever you see a grim reaper his chothes are very thin and ripped

all in all great model

yeh i suppose although my reference isn’t my avatar its a stylised one i drew roughly which im basing this on becuase when i make the final image he will not be and this pose have to see i might thnk out your clothes put in some holes here and their so u can see his ribs or whatever thanks for the comments though they are apprieciated added red eyes now but i will make another post when i do his hands tommorow becuase i dont see the point in making another image post jsut for two red spheres :wink: lol

thanks

reaper

edit think i might make him a little taller like you say does look a bit stumpy

last update for the night work on arms tommorow made him lesss stumpy added red eyes

I like it, what did you start your clothes with (cube sphear ext. ctrl LMB ext.) because I havent managed on making good clothes and I am planning on working on a charicter with a hood.

Arms and legs look too short, but it’s hard to be sure with how much the clothes are bunching. Still, looks quite good.

ok ive hit a minor fault / problem which is unfixable that if i try and remove the traingles the suit says sumin bout sub surf not being able to caculate it or sumin and it goes mad so im just guna leave it and not try to remove triangles it seems fine though so no worries added a free more crease now made him taller and made the bottom of the cloak better it flailed out to early in the last render so i have fixed that.

C4: i started with te hood made it and then i extruded it out into the shoulders and then down to the length of the whole body and then i manipulated it and things then because i extruded it evenly there were 4 vertices where the arms could come out then extruded them easily and so on a so fourth

Soldier: i think i might have to make them a bit longer have to see yet as then i make the hands they will be longer as the wrist will be shown which goes into the hands

going to start work on the hands i feel the main bulk of the cloak has been done at the end i shall add some holes and tears in there for good measure a few ribs etc. and some more creases of course as still to few on the torso area.

thanks

reaper

heres an update added some tears in the clothing will start work on arms soon :wink: lol can see the ribs now its coming along now

thanks

Reaper

ok i think im done with the cloak and stuff now the hands could be better may tweak them

what do you think?

Reaper

The tears on the arms don’t seem really realistic, they are not “falling” (you know what i mean) but there is a real good work on the body , the head and the eyes.
Keep going.

ok thanks i had a crack at fixing that here it is and added the infamous scythe although i am not sure about the shaders and materials yet on that
