I am doing a basic muscle simulation with the bones. :slight_smile:

Step 1 of retopo, bringing in the mesh:

This was the 1st step in rebuilding Uben in blender.

Retopologized head:

I start with the head because it takes the longest, and it’s the most enjoyable part for me.

I am doing a basic muscle simulation with the bones. :slight_smile:

This is a really great character, nice work. Is this your own design?

Very nice sculpting there! The rig on that thing is insane! I would like to move all those bones to make an animation :D. Looks great though, nice work!

hehe, I agree with the above me: Nice work!

But whats with all the bones? Are you trying to simulate Breathing or something? :slight_smile:

Excellent character. IMO, he’s trying to simulate muscles deformations.

Ahhh!! He’s naked!
Lol, just kidding.
Looking very realistic… for an alien that is! :wink:

Wow, awesome sculpting, and an impressive rig to boot.

Wow, this was in blender, I completely missed that part over at CG talk. Great character, how does that right look in motion?

really clean mesh, clean topology, nice materials, nice sculpting, and from what I can tell, nice and good anatomy.
Nice looking rig too. (no controls setup yet?) looks very cool in all.

I have one big crit though, and a smaller one. It may be an alien, but it’s proportions are human based.
The legs… the legs are the largest muscles in the human body. Whereas your alien has a very large and muscular torso, he has very thin legs, like one of those bodybuilders that only works his chest. arms and shoulders.
My smaller crit would be that the bottom of his chest, where the diaphragm is, seems a little underdefined, near the solar plexus.
