Modelling Landon – Part 14

Yes I skipped 13 again. I always do this for my own work, although I realise I couldn’t do it in a pipeline. I guess I could take comfort in knowing that I won’t be the one getting bad luck if  it’s not my pipeline…


Finally got back to that thumb (it still looks odd to me)… all the hand needs now is the last bit of trim and it’ll be ready.


Extruding and closing the end off to create thickness…

this gif should be slowed down immensely for accuracy.

I can hear the sound as I watch this and it makes me want to scream.


my god yes


Power Berry (Harvest Moon cocktail)

1.5 oz. Spiced rum
.5 oz Coconut rum
Fill with Cranberry juice
Sprig of mint

Directions: Pour spiced rum and coconut rum in a lowball glass over ice. Add cranberry juice to fill and stir. Add a sprig of mint as a garnish. Drink up and gain more stamina! (Note: the mint is purely for decoration. I would not advise mixing the mint with the drink.)

Going ahead and UV’ing the eyeballs now, so I don’t have to later…


I’m actually surprised that the lattice didn’t affect the UVs, that saves me lots of time.

LandonModel_Week11g Creating a shader for the eyeball…


Testing the size and shape of the iris on the eyeball (to see how it holds up against the lattice)


Surprisingly, it wasn’t as horrible as I thought it’d be when I first loaded the texture. Let’s just…

Added the other eye because it was bugging me



Mating up the hair in the side & front views is always tricky (especially for me).


Reworking the hair (and look! eyebrows!). I tried bevelling pieces before but that really didn’t do much for me. Here I’ve gone and bevelled a couple of strands and layered them. Strangely, this method feels like a step in the right direction. I’m going to try doing…

Modelling Landon – Part 10

Hands are pretty complex, but I’m lucky this time as the hand doesn’t need to be connected with the wrist! Anyways I’ll break from tradition and do two posts in one day (sacrilege!) just because I feel like I’m on a personal roll with this and it’s coming together far faster than my Red model two semesters ago.



The thumb has more of a shape now…

Fitting the glove to the fingers…


Collapsing some of the edges in the hand to create less density near the wrist area…


Top & Bottom views thus far, knuckle proportions have also been adjusted so that the joints nearer to the tip of each finger are slightly smaller.


I’ll probably have to touch up the knuckles again, far too much pinching going on for my liking… in the meantime I’ve extruded…

Continuing with the hand, I’ve given the finger knuckles and adjusted the proportions…


Detached the finger and made sure the glove fit around it, now all I need to do it duplicate and tweak the other 3 fingers before dealing with the thumb.


Fingers duped, resized to (roughly) fit the proportions of each finger and ready to be “attached”

The face is proving tricky to shape the way I want it. There’s some weird pinching going on in the corner of the mouth that I really wish I could be rid of.

When comparing my rig to one like this, the mesh density appears greater than mine around the mouth. I’m hesitant to try this as I’d either have to scale the entire model (and image planes) or risk having vertices too close together for…

Bit of definition on the pants where they’re stuffed into the boots. These folds are kinda basic but they look ok so far…
