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?

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.
