    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    I didn't notice until earlier this week, but I actually started making these changes to the model version that doesn't have the lower lip. Oops. I guess I'll have to do that one again. I made a minor tweak to remove the depression between the eyes, so that the wrinkle between the eyebrows...

    Sketches, drawings, and eventually 3D-models; feedback/critique always appreciated

    Re: Sketches, drawings, and eventually 3D-models; feedback/critique always appreciate Blender can actually import .3ds files! So, you won't even have to start over on it, just import it and save it as the local file type. It's funny, actually, somehow .3ds became something of a...

    Sketches, drawings, and eventually 3D-models; feedback/critique always appreciated

    Re: Sketches, drawings, and eventually 3D-models; feedback/critique always appreciate I agree with X_Joshi_X, that is a great low poly mesh! Although I have little experience working in Blender directly, and none with Cinema4D, I do know that Blender is quite good and feature rich. However...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    More face work! Further refinement of the topology around the connection between the flews and cheeks to make the edge flows curve up rather than continue straight. It's something I tried before, but I'm happier with it this time, largely because of improvements in the overall wire-deformer...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    Thanks for the kind words and encouragement! :mrgreen: Over the time I spent this week, I came to realize I actually like both of them, but under different circumstances. In portrait view, I prefer Choice B. In profile view, I like Choice C (or at least it's intent.) I think I've found a...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    And the poll results are... a 2-2 tie between Choice B and Choice C! Hmm, didn't see that one coming. Personally, I was rootin' for choice A. Would've saved me a lot of work :razz: A big "Thank You!" to everybody who participated, and a special thanks to biozz and Maugryph for their comments...

    Which Face Do You Prefer?

    Please do ignore the coloring, it was chosen to better highlight contours and clarify facial features. Sorry for the generally ugly colors/layout. Click images for full-size. Choice A: Choice B: Choice C:

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    :neutral: Well... it's a start. Change Log: Forehead more sloped Nose-bridge raised up a tad Pulled up and out eye corners Raised and shrank the protruding bit where the eyebrow are Changed topology where the cheeks meet the eyesockets to make them stick out less Made the cheeks a tad less...

    Strange Dreams

    Sometimes, I dream of architecture. Usually quite beautiful, sometimes with oddly vivid colors and especially textures (as in I can look at a wall across the room and feel the fine ripples in the stucco.) It's generally densely detailed with objects, with a combination of vast spaces and cozy...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    Details, details, details! I am all about the details! Maybe to the point of sometimes keeping me from making more progress on other things. Perhaps that is why output was so anemic this time. I have problems with distractions, which generally leads to half-finished work. As this project has...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    As expected, I managed to eke out improvements in deformation of the crotch. This was accomplished, also as expected, through a combination of topology, shape, and skin weight painting through an iterative process encompassing about 30 or so trials. Fairly standard at this point. Kinda boring...

    Am I doing something wrong? Including sketchbook

    I don't really see anything wrong with your alien designs, in fact I rather like them. I don't feel the need to suggest incorporating more animal components if your comfortable with the design as they are, but if getting noticed is your goal then I might not be the right person to ask. I'm not...

    Attempting to draw anthro for the first time

    I would add emphasis that you should copy, not trace, the anatomy practice images. Tracing would eliminate all benefit beyond pencil control. One useful practicing technique it to try to break down the target drawing into the minimum number of strokes you need to make to accomplish the shape...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    This never was going to be a major modelling-improvement post for Blythe. The longer cycle for the anniversary cut into it and then I found I simply couldn't let the Beach Turntable stand as it was. I did solve the exploding pants problem, though! The improved, physically simulated swimsuit -...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    4 years! June 20th 2015 is the 4 year anniversary of my work on this project! And what a year this last one has been! As before I did a couple retrospectives as well tried some challenging experiments. Nothing as radical as practically restarting the model, but it was a lot of fun. My hands are...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    Now that I've given myself some time to get a bit more used to it, I think you're really on to something here Taralack! I think it feels a lot better for me when I put it all together, and it rather helps keep the more prominent nose-bridge from feeling out of place. I still have a bit of...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    Thanks for the comment! Yeah, the forehead has really crept forward over time to the point of being pretty much parallel with the eyebrows while I was trying to make the head bigger. For whatever reason it never really felt *right* to me. Even now, with a little test in ZBrush... (also, I...

    Requesting a Proportion check on a 3D Model

    The first few steps down the long road impress upon me a pleasant path for a casual jaunt among gently rolling hills. No stone walls to breakthrough by repeatedly slam my face into them just yet, but we may very well still be in the shire! That is to say, I'm pleased with the ease at which...
