Talking Jazz'em up

I stumbled across a recording of Glenn Miller and Louis Armstrong and felt inspired to do some Jazz characters.. Naturally i got carried away and have this huge scenarie in my head.

anyways.. i've started roughing out the head of the trumpet dude He is not supposed to look like anyone particular but the main inspiration is from the voice of Louis Armstrong..

and development you shall have

i have made the eyes now or the beginning of them. He still needs eyelids and such but that will come later..

Now would probably be a good time to start tweaking the nose. It has gotten rather huge hehe..



Kindly

Kim

Nice Kim.

Looks very nice.
I know youre not done with him, but I think you should pull the eyebrow-erea out a bit, to give him a stronger character.
Is he supposed to be blowing a horn ?
BTW, how did you start this model up... ? Nurbs sphere? Poly box? Create Poly Tool ? or something else ?

One other thing. Nice to see some more people from DK visiting this forum. I was beginning to think I was all alone ;-)

Yes he definitely needs more character! right now he looks kinda dull i think.. I havent really started detailing yet as im still not happy with the basic shape..

If all goes well, he is supposed to be playing a trumpet and sing. I need to do some work on the lips and open his mouth a bit.

I started this model with a basic polycube, and splitpolygon to get a good basic shape. When i was sadisfied with the rough basicshape i followed up with ConnectPolyShape. Im thinking about trying my hand at SubD for final detailing, but i dont know

We are at least 3 from DK that i'm aware of, so yeah.. we're taking over :yipee:

time for another update..

i have spend a lot of time rebuilding the face, because the curveflow wasnt suitable for animation. It still needs some work but now im getting somewhere

I have also opened his mouth a bit, and i've started building his body.. i think im going for white shirt and butterfly..

It seems as the facial rebuild gave him a bit of character too..
