yeah it looks cool, i think the hips look really wide tho, and the area between the neck and the clavicle looks odd. Perhaps because the occlusion has shaded them so differently, but that may just be the angle of the render.

do you have a non-smoothed wireframe?

Well, like he said, the pieces aren't joined yet. That's probably it.

With the Eurogamer round the corner been working on some new "Game Art" to take to the job fair there, but the one thing I`m doing is an animated door that I`m going to use for the background/setting for this character.

Its 5000 Tri`s and two sided and animated - uv`s done and about to start texturing now.

Small Video of it going.

Quicktime (Only format for now)

Been trying many different styles for the cloths for the character but just not hitting the right notes yet but will post some sketches 2mo.

Hope you all still at this

Here is my first pass at texturing it

http://www.ravage3d.com/images/hero/hero_5_2.jpg

Also does anyone know how to command line batch render in Maya 2010 - everytime I try it opens 8.5 then says it cant open due to newer of maya and when I remove maya 8.5 the render option is gone.

The only thing that get's to my mind is that it's too clear and shiny maybe some scratches will fit good ... Otherwise good work mate

Ok done a simple T-shirt for the character based on a logo from a friend of mine (copyright of "great white productions")

Added a cut with some dried up blood to give it a "uncharted" look to it - will carry on the blood to the jeans (which is next by the way.

Just notice the seam line on the back - it stands out alittle too much. I layed out the uv so they would cut were the seams would be (based on real t shirts) but I did not want them to stand out that much.

These are just screen grabs from maya - I have got a bump map on this aswell but that render will have to wait for now
