Hmm, not a bad idea bullet...

I'm going to stick with the unaware victim thing I think, have been playing about with the expression on his face, doing a few variations, here's my favourite so far.

It's the "Hmm, did I just hear something?...." look.

its not often that you see an expression on a models face around here. its usually a neutral face and a t-pose and the work never gets finished

it's an awesome expression

Cheers Chirone, Dave and Bullet,
glad you're all liking the expression, I had a few others I tried but they didn't have the same frameable quality to them as this one, every angle I looked at it just made me laugh! A little bit like one of the Sims if anyone knows what I mean. Whoja Booja?.... lol (slightly geeky EA game joke, sorry....)

Also glad the black humour came across Bullet, can't really have humour in horror without it being that way can you?! lol

Will have more soon, work taking over for a few days as always....

I'm thinking I may not actually get to finish this challenge using what I've built so far, as all the texturing, rigging and posing would take quite a bit of time, and I have hardly any for the next couple of months! So I am debating whether to just do a bust in zbrush, and see how that goes, the idea for this would be not a killer, or a victim, but someone with a look of shock on their face from witnessing a murder, maybe with blood spatter on them. Will upload something in a while.

Looks awesome! I'm not sure about the blood splatter though, it doesn't look very splattery, more speckled or sprinkled... http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl...=&oq=&gs_rfai= (I googled paint splatter so as to get similar shapes without the gore )
