Default Character: Desert Wanderer

Hey guys. Just thought I might post my new WIP i started this afternoon. This should improve my skills hopefully. Im trying to get better at modeling with alot of details..Plus i hate uv and texture shit so im probably gonna be just modeling and more modeling..Anyway, here are some screenshots:
[




Dont mind the loops and wires on the face, ill fix that later, im just trying to get basic shapes. I need to make ears, ahhh..Cant really make ears that good as you saw on my previous character the Commando Rodent. Couldve done more work on it but i fell asleep cuz i ate soo much for lunch..So ughh, no sleep for me tonight.

C&Cs please so i can get better. Thanks!

oh and btw: hes not really supposed to look human, more a screwed up mutant alien that looks like a human..eh

Very nice indeed. I thought the area around the eyes looked odd but I think you modelled that deliberately, looking at the wire. Looking good, lets see more!

Hey Orgeeizm, great work.
You really are coming along in leaps and bounds.

One thing I want to say is that your concept has wild looking eyes, not just because of the pupil position but because of thier shape, this gives him character. It may not be a bad idea to try to bear those kinds of characteristics in mind while modelling (as you don't seem to be going to animate him). This would increase the level of personality and evocativness of the final image.

Looking forward to seeing more, keep up the good work

Chris

Hey everyone, thanks for the comments and crits! I have applied some of those crits and some are in queue. As for the animated, maybe in the future as Im not that good with animation. I will attempt to do some simple rigging just so i can pose him.

Chris_H: Yes i've noticed that about the eyes as well, i was planning on changing it later on when everything else is done as part of touch up. I like your use of "evocativeness" hehehe, ever since I read that article on cgtalk, it has turned On my creativity, i have alot of scene plans on paper that I will do as I get time..Right now Im doing the 2 month LOTR challenge here as well but Ill be working on this.

Ill post an update for the day later on tonight as well as for the LOTR.
