    Default Popeye the Sailor Man

    Popeye-turn-8-frames.gif

    I’m Popeye the Sailor Man,
    I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.
    I’m strong to the finich
    Cause I eats me spinach.
    I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.


    I’m one tough Gazookus
    Which hates all Palookas
    Wot ain’t on the up and square.
    I biffs ‘em and buffs ‘em
    And always out roughs ‘em
    But none of ‘em gets nowhere.
    If anyone dares to risk my “Fisk”,
    It’s “Boff” an’ it’s “Wham” un’erstan’?
    So keep “Good Be-hav-or”
    That’s your one life saver
    With Popeye the Sailor Man.


    I’m Popeye the Sailor Man,
    I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.
    I’m strong to the finich
    Cause I eats me spinach.
    I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.

    Bluto and Olive Oyl to come of course. I want to pose a fight, badly.

    theres some sort of weird "growth" or tumour just under his ear... is that meant to be there?

    Thanks guys, it's such a great character I tried to be as faithful to the modelsheet as I could and this gave me the chance to appreciate the greatness of the design.
    There are nevertheless choices to be made to translate him into 3d, especially in the face, and the "growth" under his ear was indeed meant to be there, I think it's the corner of the jaw (see modelsheet). I think that this material makes it stick out a bit to much from some angle and I may have over-sharpened it with the clay brush, thanks for the feedback, I need to check that.

    Another good one Max. It would be good to see him in action against Bluto. My only crit would be that the chin could possibly be rounder.

    Thanks Captain, I'm indeed organising a fight. I took your critique on board, and also the other one about the jaw/bulge and adjusted his jaw and chin a bit further, but I like his older style best, the later Popeye with the round jaw lost the edge in my opinion.
    I also worked a bit more on the proportion between body and legs and and emphasized the long torso a bit more. Then I made a quick posing and gave him a better stand. Here it is as of tonight. I can see now an issue on the back of his right arm, a consequence of pose master, never mind, I fix that tomorrow.

    Etcher, Moni Poroni, Ryu Moto, thanks for your kind comments.

    Here's another update, Popeye is basically textured and posed, small adjustments to come for sure but now I should really make a start on Bluto and Olive Oyl.

    Thanks Kraken, much appreciated, glad to hear you enjoy this.

    Zenneth, not that I know, it's a tough one I guess, Altman's effort was spot on, Popeye's world is so completely crazy that only by making something absurd you can do it right.

    Thanks Etcher, I'm working on my texturing, not perfect yet but improving.

    Here's a render with some edit work in Photoshop.
