I might have time for this one, so I chose funk star Eddie Hazel, Funkadelic + Parliament guitarist.
My guitar hero will be based on Eddie Hazel, and since I had trouble finding good references of him, especially anything larger than image above, I'll probably end up with something more like this:
Sketch is coming.

omg funkadelic are my all time most hated band in the ominiverse (maybe because my homosexual flatmate played thier records every day, day in day out)
I hope you do an awesome job!

Ow poor Hawken, how could somebody do that to you?
Funkadelic isn't my favorite funk band, but I had in mind the afrofuturism and outer space themed jazz and funk mainly, and was thinking of Sun Ra and all the crazy outfits he had, but Sun Ra is all but guitarist.
Anyways, here's the doodle I ended up with:

1208 tris thus far; still need to add hair and guitar and a few other small things.

eddie hazel is one of my favorite guitarists, just for maggot brain. im really looking forward to the final, but i think you need to add his cape and make the hat bigger.

You're right, Mishra, I think he looks better with the cape. I also enlarged his hat a bit. Here's the update:
Right now he's at 1887 tris, and almost unwrapped, just need to fit all the pieces together.
Nice. I like the rings. Looking awesome!

07-13-2006, 03:05 PM
wow. Did u use photos when painting face?
07-14-2006, 01:52 AM
Wow This is such a great character. I cant wait to see it finished!
07-14-2006, 02:16 PM
Wow, thanks for all the kind replies, everyone!
I'll need to wrap this up by tonight, cause I got no more time to spare. I'm pretty much done with texture, just need to figure out a good pose.
Here's the unfiltered texture render with alphas in place:
Ashat: Yep, I had dozen photo references opened around while painting.
<edit> My host has some power problems so I've uploaded the latest pic elsewhere. Hopefully the rest of images will be up again soon. </edit>

This is awsome fogman I just love the texture and the guitar turned out really nice, and the rings wow /images/graemlins/smile.gif Good job!

i dont think its possible to squeeze anymore detail out a single 512 sheet! Awesome work!
07-15-2006, 06:49 PM
Very nice, but I don't think Eddie is reading the best he could be. He's blending into his cape alittle too much. Maybe a slight drop in value in his cape (the blue part) will help pop him out and emphasize his silhouette better?
07-15-2006, 08:39 PM
Thank you all for kind words!
Spacey, you're right, I was thinking of changing cape color to break up the silhouette, but didn't find a good combination, so I just did a quick adjustment, I hope it reads a little better now:
And texture sheet:
Well, I guess that's it from me, I need to submit now, because I'll be away tomorrow. I greatly enjoyed working on this little dude, and I hope to do some more soon.
