Default "Bits" For a Character

Hey Guys,

Long time no post when it comes to WIP's. Been really busy.

I'm gonna start to post up some progress of a new character, its gonna take a long time as i'm only doing a couple of hours here and there, got the concept and the refs need to get on with it now!

Gonna be unveiling him in bits as they progress, as I think it sort of best fits the idea.

Heres the first part of it, his spine, it wont all be on display but some of it will so I modeled most of it anyway. Need a tweek here and there to add soem variation but thats not going to be a problem.

Oh christ that brings back some severe memories of my last job at the studio.

I had to do a full human, inside an out....the worst part was actually the spine with vertebrae and cushions between them...

good luck on this Steve I'll be watching with keen interest!

Its a series on discovery channel (Im led to believe) I cant give the title until I know the release date. I was pretty much the only modeller on the show. The other guys started doing small insignificant stuff toward the end but I did the bulk of it.

Talk about pressure, but no diamonds

You're actually modeling the spinal cord. If this is going where I think its going, this will really really cool , good luck with this.

Cool Steve

If I may make one comment toward the brain, which does look good, and thats just to make the brain lumps smaller and more regular for added realism...

just my usual 10p...
