Default My cartoon self

Hi guys.. Im making a 3D version of myself, and Im going to make it in a cartoony style, since Im not good enough to try making anything realistic yet.

Here´s a render of the whole model, it doesn´t have any clothes yet (apart from a hat), since I want to get the body right first..



And a close-up of the head, without the hat


And finally, a quick pic of the mesh, since some people seem to like that


Comment, please

PS/ There are several areas that need work, but not going to mention anything since I want to hear what people think

That's really cool! Hehe, you've got a priceless facial expression too. Keep up the good work!

Nope, I´m not that short I´m 183 cm (about 6'1" or so)

Here's a pic of me


I guess I should call the project "caricature cartoon me" instead... Made some changes, mainly to the eye area and to the belly (the "teddy-bear" style wasn´t really working).

Close-up


Any ideas on how to get a good beard going? Paint FX is not available since I don´t have a license for that..
