Default Some facial blends

Hi folks,

despite the issues I had getting the face rig on the go, I've sorted the issues for the time being and have started some blends.

Just a before and after shot - the after shot has some clusters closing the eyelids, and the face has two blends on it (smile and frown).

Still needs tweaking but I think the result so far is ok.

Crits and comments welcome,

cheers

I think he looks a bit goofy because the jaw is not rigged yet. Once it is I'll close his mouth and tweak the smile more, it looks a bit too v-shaped at the moment. I've tried to match the refs I have and have spent a good part of the day gurning into a mirror.

Need to fix that bottom lip, should rotate it back I think for the smile position.

Nice headmodel--selfportrait by any chance?---
Only the brow texture seems a bit odd, ah well.

Hi again,

thanks for the comments, it's not a self portriat but it does look a bit like me, only had front and side refs so used my own face to sort out a lot of the 3\4 shots, and smiles etc.

Yeah the eyebrows need some worl they are a bit odd. Think now that the mouth is odd because I haven't moved the front of the lips back against the teeth, as they do when you smile.

Sort it in the morning,

cheers

His smile looks scary, looks like the kinda smile you see in a movie after the lines "I'm a gonna have fun boy!!!!!"

but if thats what your after..... Works great.

Hi gster,

thanks I think... wasn't going for the deliverance vibe at all. Could be related to the fact that his eye clusters are half closed and his frown blend is on too.

cheers
