Default reference photos and explaination

hey el_newty - i threw this together in photoshop - no scanner needed! these are reference shots i'm using and i tried to explain what i meant a little better. basically the idea is to think of the body as a series of primitive shapes like spheres, cones etc. in order to help with basic shape and proportion.

let me know if this is helpful okay?

Hey el_newty - here are the sketches i made to illustrate how a body can be thought of as a series of angles and primitive shapes. Hope this is helpful

Thank you Ereitz for the exlanations, it helped me a lot.
Until now I modeled a human body direct with the skin, now you make me see that is a different way, an easyer way to make the human body from simple shapes...
Yes, I discovered (what you descovered from long time ago) that I can make those basic shapes and after to model the skin on it, or is a second method to make those basic shapes, combine them and unify them with new poly faces and then delete the unused ones.
Unfortunately, I can't show you omething becouse my computer crashed last night and I had to reinstal everything from Windows to... Maya, but I managed to make a short sketch of how I see now a human body (its for one human arm)
Once again thanks a lot Ereitz

i'm glad the c & c were of help - now get back on that pc & keep modeling! i'm looking forward to the next updates el_newty

many of you probably recognize the format but the reference photos are from http://www.fineart.sk - not trying to sneak any credit from them - great site.

In the few time that I had in week end I managed to make something...
Guys how about now???
It's better, isn't it?
And about Fineart, yes Ereitz it's a great site (silly me, I knew about it but I don't have this thought to inspire myself from there...)
More will come later when I will have more time to model, so stay tuned.
