    Default Diary of a VSWIP 2: Raguel (Nudity)

    Hey Guys!

    A new year's about to arrive and even though right now I don't have as much time as I used to, I thought I'd share a new character: Raguel

    As the first Diary I'll be posting updates and questions... oh yessss... tons of questions

    Hope you guys get a kick out of it

    Take care

    Looks like an awesome start, but a question: with those huge talons, how does he pick his nose?, or scratch his back?, or even play with himself?
    Looking good so far - I cant wait for the next installment.

    Super cool. I also like the color. Can I see a better shot of your cage primitive. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

    Hey muchachos!

    Prospect, Thanks! I have a lot in mind for this tall guy... the thing is to make it happen

    aminuts, hey buddy! Good to "see" you around... At least I know there will be encouragement

    jit_gohil, Pick his nose: sharp fingers / Scratch his back: very easy with long hands / play with himself: well... there's always a solution for that

    AVTPro, the primitve shape actually comes from zspheres but somewhere along the way I made a polymesh from it -bad habit-.
    The colors are just to give me a hint of the final colors
    Here's what you requested:

    Thanks for the replies my friends

    Thanks for your prompt posting. I really think this is important. I just started with Zpheres this week, and am quite astonished how well they work for cages.

    The edge looping is simple and very effective. Glen Southerns has an excellent tutorial for edge looping. What I want to do is use a Zphere workflow for animation models with flow lines.

    What I like most about them is edge loops it automatically creates quads. It's such a relief not to think about them. Only thing drawback that I come across in ZBrush is the selection tool for edge looping is limited. Other than that, it's helping me to understand using extrudes in Maya to maintain quads. I like roughing out a character then bring it into polymodeler to refine the flowlines.

    I have a character with slightly similiar anatomy I started a while back in Maya, but it was one of my first full body edge loops. I overworked it. thanks for the inspiration, maybe I can finish it as is.

    Default Very cool

    He reminds me of a D&D Boneclaw. Those claws are nasty! I like the realism of this model: the musculature looks good, and the claws really look heavy. Great job. About the "playing with himself", he doesn't really look like he has something to play with, so when you finish your model, I'd consider giving him some kind of loin cloth to spare him the shame.

    For some reason, he looks to me like he should be fighting spider man.

    Hey guy!

    AVTPro, yeah, zspheres are awesome -a bit tricky though- but with practice you'll get them right. Jason Belec started a very useful thread called A little challenge...
    I recently started to work with edge loops within ZB with my other character Sophia... very cool resource since you can't really add polygons to a polymesh... and yes, quads are the best
    I'm honored if somehow I helped you to finish your character -that guy looks like fun-

    Rhenderoceros, I've never seen Boneclaw before, pretty cool character The funny thing is that they share the retract and growing claws feature.
    I'm really glad you like the anatomy... and yes, he'll have a skirt -yeah! that should spare him the shame -

    Bill, don't worry, this "little angel" will have his share of fights

    Thanks guys and have a very happy new year!

    PS.
    Literally... he is an angel

    dmckim, thanks for your very kind comment I could bore you to death with what I think of originality -like I probably did in the first Diary- So I'll just stick with the complement
    Thanks again my friend
