Stone Corpse WIP(updated 2004/08/22)

The latest project I’ve started:

it looks like… exactly what is sounds like. the ear looks kinda messed up. were you going for a crushed/shattered/splintered look?

yup! the ear’s supposed to be all mangled-looking.

Looks good so far, looks a bit abused.

Is that so you didn’t have to perfect a part of the face that most people find difficult? :smiley:

One day I’ve got to seriously try modelling a head.

Anyway, I like this from a modelling point of view but I’m a bit uncertain about the texturing you’ve used. The bump is OK, it’s the marble like veins in it that don’t really work (in my opinion of course).

I like the dents you’ve put in the skull as I think a stone corpse should probably not have perfect anatomy. Makes it more interesting.

Strange. I’m gonna agree with Caleb72 on the texture. I’d like to see it from a more interesting angle as well. Doesn’t come across as corpse like to me, though. More of a orcish vampire kind of thing. But it is well done and interesting. Are you going to make a complete corpse?

Kansas_15 - of course he’s abused. he’s a corpse;)

A little bit of both;)

I dunno, I think the texture made it look more stone-ish and would otherwise look too boring a plain without the veins.

NQE1 - I’ll see what I can do about another angle, though it does look a little odd from some angles since I haven’t finished working out the whole face. I don’t know if I’ll do a full body yet or not. I’ll see how it goes.

looks great man, are you using original ideas for these characters, or are they from another source, also nice job finishing the orc, i really thought that was such a huge project that you would never be able to finish, but you pulled it off nicely.
good work

thanks! these are just things i come up with off the top of my head, or when I’m experimenting and just messing around and something cool turns up, I start to expand on it.

here;s an update - hopefully looking more corpse-ey.

you should remove the eyeball. Old corpses like this dont have eyes

another update. Been playing with the texture and the lighting.
