So i started this little project which involves designing and creating a 3D digital character which i will animate.

I started with loads of drawings and ideas, and got loads of feedback from friends and peers. I came up with a story where the protagonist (main character) started out as a poor child, who grew up in a slum like part of town. He only has 1 good friend as a child which is a girl. She moved away without saying why, and he ends up getting a job as a dishwasher in a local and popular bounty hunters guild. He grows up around many well known warriors, and eventually becomes part of the guild when he becomes old enough. Some years later he finds out that an infamous organisation has abducted this girl he once knew and his mission is to save the broad and kill the person responsible.

This is a quick sketch and layout of the character that seemed to be the most popular of the bunch:


This is what i have done so far in 3D:


It still needs to be tweaked a bit. Once i think it is ready, i will put it through Zbrush and add loads of detail then texture it before i rig it and animate it.

So, give me some constructive critisizm and tell me what you think of it?

Why the fuck should he help some bitch that just left him without saying why and then never spoke to him for ages and now she expects him to save her fuck that, I fucking hate chicks like that

Maybe she wouldn't have got abducted if she wasn't a FUCKING WHORE




Cool character though
DuPz0r
lmao!


I wanted him to use a Blade for his main weapon, but i'm looking at him now, i think he may be good with a bow and arrow. I may give him both weapons. Any sugestions?

I was gonna bulk his muscles out a bit on zbrush, so he doesn't look so skinny.

Go for the guy on Last Samurai. Bow and Arrow then dual swords.
Indy
Yeah I agree with pie, sort of like Legolas.
Don't like the helmet, otherwise he's pretty sick.
Mekstizzle
If you're going down the Bow and Arrow route give him a compound Bow

How long have you been in that class for?

what class?

i've been doing Fine Art for three years at college. But i decided to go into digital animation at Uni this september, because it pays well, and it seems like my thing.

I made a quick clay figurine of my design. Tell me what you think?
Marney1
Very good it looks about 3 feet tall, is it?
DiO
Looks awesome man. I suck at clay stuff.
DuPz0r
I will leave it to dry out a bit, then add details too it. To be honest, while it is still wet, it is kind of floppy and the legs dont support the weight without support rods just yet. That is the main reason i want it to dry, because it strengthens it.
Boss Up
It would look better if you would widen his upper body and bulk him up abit, nice job.

I agree with that. The helmet makes him look a bit to much like magneto
Marney1
Can't help thinking I've seen this character somewhere before, where did the idea come from?

lol. I don't know really. I was trying to get a character that fit in with a fantasy role playing game. And that was the most popular one, in my art student buddies opinions. I think i just picked ideas out of my head that i may have seen before somewhere.

And other news, i fully textured my figure, and i'm in the proccess of creating weapons, then i will rig him (i hope lol).

Pic:
Marney1
Coming along nicely he looks like he's had botox injections in his his lips though lol.
DuPz0r
Yeah i know lol. Still finishing the face there, i forgot to mention. I need to figure out how to add eyelashes and brows using hair rendering.
Indy
Yeah just get the detail down, it's lookin quite good. Make his face more manly loll
DuPz0r
It has been a while, but here is what i have so far. It isnt complete yet, but i just need some renders for college. I will eventually find time for a short animation.

I made the scene, then imported my character afterwards. I spent ages rigging the character. I didn't expect it to eb so hard!





Marney1
^ Very impressed and I know you're not finished with it but his face makes me laugh wink.gif
DuPz0r
Yeah his face still looks pretty shitty. But it is much improved from the the way it looked before. that was just funny:

LOL Some great expressions he pulls, he either looks confused or he's inbred!! But seriously I think you're putting a lot of time and effort into it and it's starting to show. smile.gif
Indy
His face is too long, his nose in particular is quite jewish.
DuPz0r
This is my favourite one:


oh and indy, his face isnt quite that long, that was a lense effect i forgot to turn off.

I knew I should have brought my SatNav.

DiO
Dude must do 500 sit-ups every day.
Indy
Naa he's a spartan.
Looks better in that last screen, still something dodgy about the lips, particularly the upper one.
