this is the very beginging of a new pet project I'm starting.

by the end of the project hopefully the model well be so detailed that you can begin to start seeing some muscle defintion

but thats probably a ways off.

the plan for this model is to basicly build it up to film quality, make it look kickass like somthing from Heavy Metal and yet playful in that it'lll still look cartoony.

then render a small animated scene.

so thats Day1

maybe it'll be a lot cooler by day 7.

Its ment to look a bit like Layla El when i get the head/hair done.
but so far the the clothing seems close enoug to hers.

edit: need bigger boobs

Yeah was gonna say... it's not that the boobs are too small as such, nothing wrong with small boobs. :P They're just the wrong shape, I think, and maybe a bit close together.

How many new projects do you start a week!?

I need multiple projects to keep me from getting bored of one and quitting it all together. I usually eventually quit anyway.... but i tend to last longer when its more than just one thing.

the model is ment to be a little toonish in the end. I'm trying to mix. 3 things into this one model

general heavy Metalness
http://my.km.ru/bim/files/images/FAKK2/Arts/Arts-1.JPG

the general appeal of cartoons (exagerated shapes and such)

and a wrestling diva who doesnt seem to wrestle at all, but she's got charisma any way.

in all 3 cases...need bigger boobies

ok....

Image

was messing around on the boots ont his one. theyre almost done. then need somthing extra. but i dunno what.

she's actually flat chested now, but youre still seeing a filled in bra. I guess tomorrow will be a day for tits. I've kinda gotten used to the idea of small ones tho.
maybe i'll may two versions. or have a forum vote or somthing.

hair is...experimental
it wont make the final cut.
the head is actually ripped of an Aegypt model, but its not set yet, and I'll probably mod the shit out of it untill it looks like somthing else completly.

Image

same pic here except for you can see the socks.
kinda proud of those, you canr barely see it here but as you get closer on the socks you can actually make out toe forms. also theyre actually large enough to cover the leg yet small enoug to be covered by the boots.

still gotta work our hands. those things are just ugly.

oh yeah, no shorts becuase the leg/hip/crotch have been totally redone.
easy to remake again, but I thought a thong would be fun

boobs could be a little bigger, but i'd shy away from anything ridiculous, a'la DOA

nice work on the socks

I never seem to do whatever it is i intend to do the next day.
anyway, today I didnt do much real model work at all...if any (I honestly dont remember)

instead i spent most of the day trying to figuring up and testing theories for hair.

I'm trying to acheive a few things with the hair.
a) I dont want the typical contrained hair
B) I dont want the typical hair styles you often see.
c) I want somthing that animates well.

so far ive struck out on all accounts.

here's a crappy VIDEO

it was actually worse than that, I had to delete 3 parts cuzz they just warped all over the place. I thought I was on to somthing with the initial setup of everything, but after seeing it animate. no.

I would consider the some process over again with short parts.. but setup was such a fucking bitch. it was like 30 minutes for just that half a half of a top teir.

I might consider using the actual hair tool, which i really dont wanna do cuzz its such chore to use. and it looks a bit out of place on the model (could be shader issues tho)

I'll have to figure out somthing soon. completing the core model will probably go by quicker than i originally planned. and if it does, I'll have a hi-rez bald chick, and no ideas for the wig.

Surely someone has done dreads before, look to a predator model or something they are guarnteed dreads maybe you can reverse engineer something from that.

dreads would be way too easy.
I could do those now, without much thought to them.

that's what the video made it look kinda like, which is why I was thinking you could pick up some tricks from how that is done and apply them here.

Or I could not be getting what your aiming at all.

oh with the video if it had workd, theyd have been a stiffer yet bouncy and each cyclinder would have been textured like a candy cane,
the red stripe would have been hait the white would have been transparent, and in the end a fake curl.

I think it's coming along very well. Very nice job Johnny. My suggestion for hair would be like a princess leah look. But perhaps with curls bouncing from the balls on the head. Maybe I'm not explaining it right. More like pigtail balls of hair with curls is what I mean. And then you could do some crazy hair coloring. So then when you animate it...it's not exactly the type of hair style you would normally see because of the curls and all the different hair colors, but it would be bouncy and shiny if you like streaked the hair with two different colors or something.

I dunno what your looking for...but figured you might want an idea or two. XD

did you base the boobs on a source pic? They look a bit too fake at the moment. You should get a life model in, remember to post photo's though so we have something to compare to.
