You are a sweetie.
I can use her to try to figure out how to make long hair. Hair that looks decent enough to go on her.
And very nice modeling Ron, very nice
If I might ask a question.
Generally speaking ( I realize volumes could be written about this)what are the major differences you see in modelling a male vs female.
I have run your original tutorial of the male many many times. I can see how you can change the age,ethic backgroung by small changes.
Obviously I haven't run this one that much.
But from what I have noticed the masking and smoothing are done in different areas,lips much fuller,
Are there things you specifically do in setting up the basic shape of one versus another.
A general answer would be great.
If you want to get rid of me fast, just type intuitive,I believe that is now used as a catch phrase for "Beat it".
The fate of the western hemisphere does not cling to this answer.
Whenever you get a chance.
You have been so helpful so far, I feel like I am imposing.
My apologies and thanks.
Age notwithstanding: do you apply smoothing to more areas of the female.?Same areas all the time.?
If you work from photographs,sketches,are these the criteria for the smooth etc.
I believe I can get mood into the model by rearranging such things as eye, mouth.
Age seems to be controlled by fullness or lack thereof in the face. Also obviously the wrinkles you produced with the tutorials on alpha brushes.(Made one with crows feet for eyes.}
In photography there is a balancing act in a portrait between getting it all and selectively hiding what you wish to.
Would your approachto modelling a head from "life " be the same.Put everything in than chip.
If you notice the questions have moved away from doing,to the approach taken and thought process.
My thanks again for your time and effort.
well for aging I will take and thicken the jowels and sag the face abit...but smoothing...I do that mostly around the eyes, nostril area and the mouth...I tend to paint my wrinkles on....and color plays a big part in the pigmentation of older people.
This is part of a conversation I am presenting having that answers other questions about my head models....the friend will remain anonymous...
my friend says:
you know how you always put that drool and snot on yer heads?
its just gross and I like gross
snot is my signature
my friend says:
well...it doesn't look like snot and drool....it looks like a different body fluid which will go unnammed...
I figure a zombie doesnt breathe...so the crap flows freely..and he or it is no longer a civilized being so he isnt going to try to wipe it off and if it did wipe the snot or oooze off then maybe it would lose a chunk of flesh in the process which maybe painful if it still feels pain
Do you get many requests to be an after dinner speaker?
You may have accidentally stumbled onto a new diet trick.
