Default Head

Hey guys, I started this new bust recently. The sculpting part is pretty much done, then I'll start focusing on some clothing and accesories. I will be texturing him eventually. I am taking my time on this one because everytime I look at it something doesn't fit quite right (the neck surprisingly turned out to be a lot different than I had been doing them in the past), so it may be a while before I post again with an update. This particular shot has a tiny DOF effect that I wanted to test out.

Jay, great to see you doing tutorials for this site and being so active here.

I think it looks really good. Only thing I can think of is that maybe the nose is a little bit big?

Looks very nice, and smooth. He also has some character, he doesn't look too generic.

Nice work!

neh, I like it a lot!
Can't wait to see it modeled.
Will you model the whole body?

it does looks a bit Roman.

but that's fine if that's what you want - I think it will work well.

looks a very cool head so far :attn:

Roman armour is fine by me, it will be a refreshing change.

The 'Gears' space marine style has just become too common and cliched on the forums and games with massive **** off weapons, its been done to death. yaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwn

Look forward to the rest....

Yeah I'm with jay. Everything nowadays looks like it was modeled for War Hammer. Looks great at first, but after awhile it gets to be boring.

But i like the roman look.

Nice work.
