    Wink 121 on realism / anatomics / texture issue

    Hi all,

    I've been away for a while, still trying to figure out a workflow that satisfies me.
    I'm getting some cool stuff, but seems i'll have to keep working for ages before i can get the look i'm trying to get in my pics.

    Anyway, i made a doodle today, and while doing Mr. Head n# 1356485zillion2, i figured out that the model I was doing in two ours was exactly the same I could have done a year ago when I started to get confident with ZB interface and tricks.

    So, i understand i'm going like in the wrong direction. And i understand too that what I mainly lack is a good knowledge of Anatomy (facial in this case, but body anatomy too in others), among other things, like understanding what makes a texture a GOOD texture.

    Sooooooo....

    Does anyone have good links about anatomy sources, lessons, advices, texture tips, general realism in CG considerations ?

    I bet you have ! C'mon !

    Here is my last crime :




    Criticize, explain, be tough.
    Thanks a lot.

    Talking

    I knew it !
    Stonecutter : that's an awsome source ! Thanks a lot.
    Blackthorne : those books look great, and having the choice, i would surely prefer to buy a few of them, but for now I have to rely on good ol' free network.
    (EDIT)
    The Burne Hogarth book is really a cool one, I think I'll try to buy this one asap. But seems this edition only has the facial stuff, while the book i saw talked about all and every aspect of the human body...)
    (//EDIT)

    BTW, isn't that the kind of 'information' I can expect to find freely on internet ? Just asking

    I'm sure people in this board have a lot of interesting links like those !

    Thanks for helping !

    "He who seek, this one will find"

    an interesting link, compares Da Vinci and Vesale drawings.
    planches ANATOMIQUES
    it's in french, but the pictures don't need any vocabulaire

    now i go give a shoot at yours, stonecutter.
    (EDIT)
    And there I found something both funny (or perhaps frightening, i'm not sure )
    Towards a Digital Computer with a Human Face
    A must see.The Eyes page is also a must see

    Cool

    A VERY interesting link indeed, Vincent!
    (And my last name is Lapierre, originally spelled by mon pere, LaPierre, I live in a bilingual country officially, (Canada), and had no problem with the language! )

    I'm going to bookmark this one for sure, just for those INCREDIBLE drawings by two Masters! Thank you for the link!

    I wanted to post it here...All of Andrew Loomis is gone as well, and one of the Andrew Loomis bookmarks I had, now leads to a Yugoslavian site...

    1:1 Anatomy details ? That's almost as good as having a true model home

    Remembers me of two human 1:1 sculptures I saw at Madrid's Reina Sofia. Just as realistic as truth but made of clay or sort of it. I can't remember the name of the artist though...




    I'm getting a little further in my search, this time with a torso. I have set the picture and tried to model a sphere to it, adding ZClay where I saw muscles... then I did the front side using the good old method (trying to figure out where the hell were the bones and stuff using my brain cells and memory.)
    (Not actually sure which one is the best side )
