Hey Arran, thx for the comments, I am glad you liked the hands, I am actually quite proud of how they turned out

here is a picture with multiple angles. The back looks almost too bent, but that is how one of the references i am using is (the muscular one). The other reference is much more straighter (the normal, whimpier one)...As it is right now it almost doesnt look natural so I will probably fine tune the back and its arch. Anyways, C&C welcome.

Smile sorry a bit rude of me

should have done a catch up read of the thread, i just opened to the last page, oops ... yeh the belly button thing looks right, but still wrong ... i stared for a bit , Im not sure ... maybe its just a bit short in the torso in general, but if as you say your working from ref' then it might just be a part of natural variation (it was always hard in life drawing when you get a model with some anomalous body form to get the drawing to look right):bow:

Thx Jay, well, i took my pants off and the legs seem to go pretty high up there hehe, jk...please post that reference and lets see whats up.

Bruce, I will adjust that back a little bit to take away some of the hump. Make it straighter. these bodybuilders have proportions that makes them look like aliens in some cases. I have placed two separate references one on top of the other (one of a body builder and the other one of a regular guy) and the differences are amazing...

thx all for the comments.

hey minstrel - any chance you can post the references that you are working from? It almost sounds like the body builders in your references might be flexing rather than in a relaxed state. Just a thought...

And Jay, you were absolutely right...Those thighs connecting to the hip area did look odd.

In this new version i tweaked the legs significantly, the torso, made the forearm shorter and the hands just a bit smaller. The back is still pending.

What do you think?

I decided to go in a new direction. My guys was looking a bit too thin, ripped, but too thin. So I looked up some othe reference material from Arnold and this is what I got. I pretty much changed everything except for the hands, head and feet.

I dont have zbrush, so maya will have to do. I will eventually apply some bump maps or displacement maps to these guys, but not from zbrush.
