Hey mtmckinley,

I really like your model. Great design. Everything looks pretty cool except for the pelvic bone isn't prominent enough. It makes the hip section look a little manly, which if you look at .... well you know, your reference material, you'll see that the female pelvic bone actually sticks out. I'm not sure if the love handles on the figure is what you were trying to use as the pelvic bone, but something just doesn't look right.

Of course, I'm not one to judge really, so do what you need to do. I really like the design.

Thanks for the comment, wchamlet!

I haven't really delved into the pelvis area fully yet (wha!? :p) mainly because it's going to be covered up in the final image.

Thanks!

this is really nice work - i'm inspired - can't wait to see how it finishes - great composition with the snakes - i bet just a little movement will be super effective in animation!

very nice breasts - i commend your use of quality reference material

now i know you said in the final version the pelvis will be hidden but the model is such a beautiful example of the female anatomy i for one would like to see the rest of her naked! and i share wchamlet's opinion of the pelvic roundness - also i think the subtle lines around the belly and hips look a little unatural (too paralel to one another...) - this is only apparant because of the very natural organic curves you have achieved elsewhere - notably on the lovely pair i already complimented above and the bum which shows great promise!

looking forward to more!

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Here's some wire images. I've elongated the torso, as compared to a few reference images I have, her torso seemed too short. I've also tweaked little things here and there. The arms are still very much new.




I'm pretty sure that I'll eventually model the entire thing, but for this challenge, as there's a time limit, I'm only going to do what's needed for the image. Actually, I've already done quite a bit more than I really need, as most everything under the breastline will be hidden. :p

Wow! Deadly. She looks as if she could "un-brain" you with a few deft strokes of her nimble little hands.
