Updated throughout the day. Forgot to take screenshots for rest of day 9. Will post screenshots to day 10.
When I was actually able to get some work in today I spent some time on the front of the torso, namely around the stomach and ribs.
^Close up of the torso so far. ^
While I’m done with the torso(front) for now this is only the first detail pass I intend to make on it before adding accessories and doing a retopo.
Note: Tonight and tomorrow will be spent on the back and shoulders, so if tomorrow’s post is lean now you know why. I also apologize in advance if that’s the case. If I’m lucky I can have him textured, rigged, and animated before the fourth of July. 🙂
I love helpful forums. Especially ones like Blenderartists.
After posting yesterday’s latest photo up on blenderartists a few helpful blenderheads pointed out to me a good portion of what was wrong with my model. So now yesterday’s photo now makes me cringe slightly instead of filling me up with pride like it did before. *sigh* That’s progress I guess. : /
Here’s the update so far today.
Note: To anyone interested in doing sculpting I highly recommend using a tablet. For the entirety of this model I have used a mouse and let me tell you IT IS A PAIN. Little details will make you cry crocodile tears if you use a mouse.
Lean post again. Here are the screen shots I’ve taken over the past day or so.
I’ve been really trying to work the face into something a tad more intimidating without losing the gentle giant look he was rocking before. So far I’m pretty happy with it. Oh, and I also did a bit more with the mouth(tongue mostly).
At the moment I’m working on the abs and such but I won’t post photos of that until it’s done.
Note: Okay so I lied(kind of). Couldn’t wait til tomorrow to upload this photo.
Needless to say I’m quite happy with it so far. 🙂 Of course I still have quite a bit left to do with sculpting alone but yeah, this renewed my excitement with the project. Good night.
Here’s the update for today. I got so caught up with the face and body I forgot to finish the inside of the mouth. Because of this, today is dedicated to modeling that and to start sculpting the base.
Note: I apologize in advance if the posts for today and tomorrow end up being rather lean compared to the rest. I will make up for it though on Sunday and/or Monday’s post.
^Added the base for the teeth.
Note #2: On the advice of some helpful folk I will be doing a full retopo of the model after the sculpt is finished.
