    WailingMonkey: cheers for the extended crits! Thanks! I agreed with you on just about everything you mentioned and fixed most of it. Still working on the eye area as that is one of his most important features. I do really like where the changes are taking him even though they are not major changes.... Hope you like the direction now.
    Oh and no worries on the paint over. In fact much appreciated! Thanks for the insight.

    AR-MAN: Thanks! I hope to get back to him soon....had a motherboard issue that halted my progress and just haven't got back to him yet. soon...

    if we're going by classical proportions, his ears are still way too high.

    don't really know what you're going for though, could always throw the trusty old 'stylized' label out there and not have to worry about it :P

    testure: lol! I don't wanna rely too heavily on calling him stylized but yeah, he's definitely not going to be photoreal... I agree about the ears somewhat and I will experiment next session. However, for some reason, I kind of always envisioned Roland with a long face and larger than average ears (I think possibly because of my cowboy uncle who happens to have larger ears).
    Thx for the comments!

    Hey Ryan. I like this. There is a lot of character in the face so far. I think the brow and eyes are capturing what we can imagine Roland is like, but I don't know about the mouth. I know its just wip, but something about those teeth and the slightly open mouth is throwing off what could/should be a more taciturn, 'serious' expression that you could work into there. Can't wait to see where you go with it.

    Hey Dante, thankee Sai. I totally agree about the mouth. I should have mentioned to disregard the teeth and open mouth for now. I started sculpting this from a speed sculpt I did last week that already had teeth sculped in. It does look a little silly right now though and I will fix it for the next update.
    It's awesome seeing other DT stuff being done in 3D... I really am surprised to not have seen more. Good luck in creating your visions of Midworld! I will be watching!

    Hey All! So I started on Roland's body. The head is still not attached to the body and the whole thing needs a retopo as is very WIP still but just wanted to show the direction I am heading. I am staying true to the books (or at least my interpretation) and presenting an older, weary Roland circa DT I or II.

    Ok so, I did a little more work on the body. Think this is about as far as I'll take him in this direction...time for clothes!
    He is also badly in need of a retopo and I still have to join the head to the body so I guess that should actually be my next step.
    Thanks for looking and comments always make me happy...good or bad.

    Ok, not a huge update but I have retopo'ed the model and joined the head to the body.Something about the last head up was not quite right...too cartoony so I've tried to make it a bit more realistic while infusing a bit of Clint Eastwood in there. I promise, last major change to the head, I am satisfied...now to keep cutting in details and time for accessories!
    Thanks!

    Ok, just for fun! Roland meets The Outlaw Josey Wales.
    Thinking of doing Roland's hair similar to this...

    I like the changes you've made, Ryan. And I like the mock-up.
    (looks like you've gone more Clint and less Lee Marvin)

    Once again, I've done another paintover on some of the changes you
    might consider...I think your 'new' nose is a missed opportunity to add
    a bit more character (seems like it got chopped down and a little generic
    from the camera angles above).

    Also, the body shots reminded me of TF2 stylized character (think
    it's the Spy?) but perhaps it's the 'draw' stance...

    Anyhow, looking forward to the next steps!

    WailingMonkey: Thanks! Your comments are always helpful and appreciated. I took your suggestions to heart and also added in some more wrinkles...maybe the ear is still a bit funky but I'll get around to it.
    Overall I think I am very happy with how the face is coming along. Next up some hair to try an get a true feel for Roland.
    Thanks for looking!

    wow,
    i really like that you didn't use that Marvel Design of Roland of Gilead for your Idea,
    It looks really cool,
    i thought about making Susannah (Odetta) Walker a few month ago,
    maybe i'll give it a try.

    btw:
    the gun looks amazing





    Long days and pleasant nights.
