human, 3d, high/low ploy, need c+c

Postby btoxin » Tue Dec 04, 2007 9:58 am

This is something I've worked hard on, but it's not going well. Everything is from reference. It's supposed to have a lot of detail because it's a high res version that will make a normal map for a game model, (which I will test in UT3 and Crystal Space).

I need c+c, I'm sure there are people here who know muscles and can tell me if they are wrong.

in case it's not clear, this is an unclothed human model: FRONT

Oh, also, I will make the files publically available, I will also do a big hulk-like man and a human skeleton.

The hi-res doesn't look that bad, just keep at it and dig around for the best reference shots you can find http://www.3d.sk/?id=3 usually has the goods.

The low poly one could use a bit of work, watch your edgeflow on areas around the joints, the more work you put into it now, the easier it will be when you come to rigging. Ben Mathis has some nice character modelling tutorials...http://www.poopinmymouth.com/tutorial/tutorial.htm

You could probably lose a few polys here and there too. Normal maps work better over simpler models. As long as you keep a nice sillouette, don't feel you have to use loads of polygons, just because you can :)

Thanks. YOu are right about the low poly issues. Also that tutorial link had descriptions on how to add detail to an existing normal map. Very usefull.

Any comments on fixing up the details? Another thing is I don't know where to place veins or other things.

Depends what effect you are after, bodybuilding sites or google searches for "Vascularity" should give you plenty of reference pics.
