close up

Close up

Still placing the eyes and teeth and mouth

Done with a side of Jack Kirby

Now I just need to add some details such as fixing the shoes and creating belt and gun and such as well as double checking edge loops for animation. He appears to be proportionally correct according to my divinci circle to check his reach arch. I might have to pull the arms in just a bit. He does get kind close to his knee caps. I am also going to smooth all of these except the head and shoes to get an even edge flow. either that or mental ray preview smooth to save some time

+There is a moral to this story ...

Never character Model while Skyping. His numerous forehead lines are removed and I may take out more

coming along

Jack Kirby Style animated short

So I decided to capture a little of the Jack Kirby look. I will post references for it. It will be a bit of an experiment to get that look to translate. At least the characters will but the environment might be tricky. Not sure I liked the original head I concepted for our company presentations  so I resculpted it and rebuilt it  in 3D coat from the ground up according to the new illustrations. I was going to use my head I modeled but it's just not hero like enough and it's a bit ego centric. My head will be a villain


I am really excited

Scifi Emmo Land?

A little hard surface is good for the soul!!!! Here is a project I am tackling for an animated short and crossing it for hard surface and organic modeling. Deus Ex is a good inspiration. I will tweak it further but this building is one of 40
