    Default Getting the Gang Back Together (Star Wars)

    Ever since the announcement of the new Star Wars movie's I've wanted to start work on this project. I finally got around to it a few weeks ago and I'm now ready to show something.


    I'll be doing models of Luke, Han and Leia, but at their current ages. Not 100% sure on what I'll do once I have the heads done, but I'm sure I'll work something out.


    Main render is done in 3dsmax with vray, and there is a little bit of post work on it.





    Han Sculpt
    Han's about 90% done, still a few more little tweaks here and there are probably needed. He's actually a progression of an old Han model I did, which wasn't up to scratch for the project, so I improved it.



    Luke Sculpt
    Luke's about 65% done, he's a hard nut to crack, but I'm confident I'll get there. He's a little slimmer than Mark Hamill is currently, but it looks like Mark is losing weight for the role so I'm just jumping ahead in time...lol



    Obviously their ears need working on, and they need hair, eyebrows, clothes etc...and Leia is coming soon...

    Instantly recognisable, these are amazing. Knew it was Harrison Ford from the thumbnail, really nice surprise to see you've captured Mark Hamill so well also. Can't wait to see your progress with this.

    very recognizable! Funny when I think of it, seeing Luke (Hamill) bald like he look like anikin/vader when he finally got his helmet unveiled! Only without all the scaring and volcanic burn tissue.

    okay, so some updates came sooner....

    i didn't feel like doing much sculpting so instead I played around with the render setup and some hair for Harrison (since i don't envision changing the parts the hair will be on)

    here Luke and Han in the new setup.

    each head was rendered separately (about 2.5 minutes each @ 1920x818) then combined in PS...DOF was added in PS too....



    and here's Han's hair


    the hair was created in Zbrush using fibremesh. I then exported the geo and brought it into max.

    The hair was split as follows:-

    Main Hair: about 9 different chunks to allow ease of styling (might need 1 or 2 fuzzy edge chunks to soften where it meets the skin)
    Eyebrows: 3 different layers, to account for different lengths/thicknesses/colours of the hairs
    Eyelashes: just the one group cover top and bottom lashes for both eyes (top ones are barely visible)

    All the main hair has a simple whitish-brown standard max material applied, while the eyebrows have 3 separate colours each with varying levels of opacity to soften them up. Eyelashes are just a brown standard material. No spec on any of the hair at this stage.

    -------

    The render times were quite good just using the fibremesh->geo w/standard material method (not to mention it was a billion times easier to style, I did the whole hairdo in about 1/2 an hour), with the above render coming around 3-4 minutes.

    I should note that the hair is a bit jaggy at the moment, but 1 iteration of turbo smooth should fix it.

    -----------------

    I guess I should look at doing a diffuse map for the skin now, haven't bothered with one as of yet...

    made some progress on Luke today, I think I've almost cracked his face...just need to fix up his eyes, they got a bit blobby and messy when I was adjusting things...

    i think once I add hair/eyebrows it'll look better too...

    and another angle of Han

    I don't want you to stay in an illusion but the likeness of Luke is far from nailed, doesn't even Luke () like him, and Harrison is looking like a caricature. Hope you don't take this personally. Really depends on what you want to achieve - if it's realism than you're not there, if it's something else I couldn't say. Good luck!

    Personally I think they are looking fantastic robo. I have always gone back to look through your threads for inspiration. Keep up the great work.

    thanks everyone

    okay, so as cherub pointed out the luke one was a bit off, and there was something a bit off with han as well.....

    well I think I've worked out a few of the issues so get ready for some progress...

    all hair has disappeared for now, I'll have to tweak it...there's still something slightly off in the front on view but i think I've finally gotten the profile right...


    there's a few little normal/displacement niggles in the luke stuff....but i'll get those...


    and just a bit of render/shader fun

    man you really captured their faces

    how did you make such clear and bright eyes?
    I always have so much trouble with that (among a list of other things )

    Hey! Good improvements on Han! You're getting there. I'm eagerly watching your progress on these.
    Not sure about Luke though - yes it's definitely Hamill but i think you can push him even further.

    Btw. i think you captured the mouth regions really well.

    Also Hans eyes seem to be a bit to deep inside his head...

    Cheers
