Hi everyone!

I´m taking a class with Adam Skutt at Game Art Institute, and I was not posting any wips here yet.

But I thought better and I think it is good to show wips and the progress in the character we are doing.

So, I will post everything I have done so far.

First, the concept that is by Richard Lyons.

For week one, I started blocking the body, using Nickz_humanMaleAverage tool as base mesh.

Week two, I focused more in the head, changing secondary forms, and trying to find the likeness.

Week tree I made some clothing in marvelous.

So, for week four, I started doing some secondary forms on clothes, blocked some hair and beard, and added some guns (just a really rough base mesh)

And here is week five. Made a first pass of terciary details in the head, and some details on clothing.

Week six.

Here I focused more in the head, making some detailing in the hair and bear ( I will post a breakdown that I made in the next post ), some tweaks on the secondary forms also.

Week seven was a more technical week, topology and uvs, done all in maya.

And here is a little breakdown that I made, following an advice from Ryan Kingslein, showing my process to make hair and beard of the model.

I hope it is usefull for someone.

Are you base yourself only on Ed Harris. Do you want likeness? Because I find that you did a great job so far but after looking at one side view of him I think you could improve the silhouette of the skull and forehead

That side reference is from Run All Night with Liam Nelson

Hi Scote!

My main reference is Ed Harris, but my focus is a good character, once the course is not a likeness one.

But thank you for your feedback, I will see what I can improve on my model.

And thanks for your time searching for references!! The side one is a rare in the internet!

#14

I usually look at movie now with a mind of search for ref at the same time :slight_smile: like: Oh oh! thats the perfect side ref. writing down the timecode. eheh

But you already have a solid character so keep it up for the rest

#15

ahahaha! You must have a library with a lot of notes… But that is a good idea!!! Will do this with the next movies! hahaha a notebook and a popcorn side by side!

Thanks Scote!

Hi everyone!

After tweaking here and there, I would like to share what I´m calling done.

Learned a lot with Adam´s course, and I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed the course.

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

How are you?

Inspired by my friend Marcel Nilo, I decided to do a very quick model too.

I chose a concept by Dylan Ekren (again), who I am a big fan of!

I am ASTOUNDED!! That Helgesson Sailor Pinup turned out STUNNING! She’s gorgeous! I love her. Awesome work. I’m glad I didn’t try to create her now because you did a WAY more perfect job than I ever could have done. SO neat!
