Did this today , trying to get things real quick , its no where near perfect , but nice to have some good res photos to work from ..
the reference ...
I definately need to get better at hair ..
the model was finnshed in an hour , the texture took another 3-4 hours , then i spent a couple of hours fiddling with the hair ...
what to do tomorow ... /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Looks cool, but I'm not a big fan of photosourcing. I don't like it at all actualy /images/graemlins/smile.gif

I think for what you are trying to do (quick models), photos work perfectly. Especially if you are practicing modeling and not textures /images/graemlins/wink.gif
Anyway, looks pretty good to my low-skilled eye. The only thing I noticed is he has a scowl(sp?) in the photos, but you didn't model one on his face. I think it's making the skin look a little off because of that. There's also some stretching on the upper part of his ear. It may actually be a little too big also.
If I wanted to get nit picky, his nose is also a little longer near the bottom than your model's nose.

God your right about the nose ... i cant belive i didnt see that .. the scoul i did model in originaly , then flattened it out a little coz it looked odd ... i guess wot im trying to do is quick complete models , so im less attached to me work ... its somthing they teach u in drawing .. (especialy life drawing) so im trying to keep the same attitude to my digital work ...

dude why is your roomate so pissed?

i'm curious as to why his ears are so distorted on the uv map... and where you've hacked up the source images is fairly evident on the sides of the cheeks. still, not bad for a quick model /images/graemlins/smile.gif

He always looks like that /images/graemlins/smile.gif
yes there is many a place i could improve , this is my first attempt at doing a photo sourced model , and speed was the idea , i used a spherical map rather than cylindrical like most do, this helps spread the face out , but the ears are massive for some reason , and the nose tiny .. is there a better way? if i used cylindrical , the sides of the nose have virtually no uv space ... what do i do ? relax uvs ?

I like it! I've never used photo sourcing before myself quite neat, relax would work bud
