    KrakenMT,

    Great thread. The vids are a great resource. Thanks for collecting them all on the first page.

    The pose sketch is slick. I vote no shield, since, I believe, there's a no shields allowed rule in the UFC, and it just feels discourteous for a professional mixed martial artist to be toting around an indestructable metal disk that blocks punches and hurts his opponent's knuckles. His sensai would smack him in the head.

    Anyway, awesome work and tutorials so far.

    Keep making us look bad.

    Actually, that's a very good point! You're absolutely right. I doubt Shane Grissom trained with a shield, so he wouldn't know what to do with one anyway.... It would just get in the way of his main fighting styles as well. So, no shield it is.

    Here's the start of the pose with the Transpose tool. There's still some deformations to work out due to the warping from the transpose tool. And the pose needs refining after I add a proxy object for the staff to work out the mechanics of the pose.

    He's looking very good, love the pose.

    His legs look a bit spindly for such a huge upper body. Plus his hands... it just seems like the palms are a bit too small for those ultra-long fingers. The fingers shouldn't be any longer than the palm.

    Great job!

    Thanks everyone!

    markrulz,

    I noticed the thinning legs after I was done transposing, but I didn't notice the hands, so good call there. I'll fix the palms tonight and see what I can do about beefing up the legs as well.

    Once the pose is finalized, I'll start the re-sculpting of certain areas to better represent the action shown by relaxing and flexing the proper muscles in the pose.

    I did a few sketch-overs of my transposed figure during lunch hour today. This is the one that felt the most strongly about and probably the way I'll go with him. The front arm is extended a bit more and he's slightly twisting his body a little more. And his right foot is not so far away from his body.
