Here’s the last personal project I am working on; a viking.
The idea was originally to put an old folkloric viking on rock above a fjord but since I used references images from Ragnar Lothbrok from the TV Show “Vikings”, if I manage to do it realistic enough, I maybe tempted to stay with Ragnar and integrate him on a battle fight. Maybe behind a shield as they do the turtle technic or alone in a middle of a battle with particle of sands exploding somwhere around him. I don’t know yet, it’s another challenge that continue the target I seem to follow; photorealistic character.
For the moment I have the impression that I am perfectioning my thechnic but there is still an issue I can’t get rid of; it’s when I connect the ears to the head, I always get more vertices on the ear and it’s difficult to connect them without merging sometimes more than three points at once or creating new ones with the knife tool and then of course I encounter myself with tris or n gons. Well, since the ear doesn’t move I never had problems during animations but for the sake to model correctly, I’d really like some advices if you encouter the same problems.
For the moment those are the 8 first hours of work. I’m satisfied for the moment.
