Hay everyone new junk. Sort of thinking about making a basketball player...... well at least my version of a Basketball player..maybe.

LATEST UPDATE:

Got sick of playing with this guy, never even went back to finish the sculpt. ohh well there is always the future........ didn't stop me from being a presentation wanker though



Now it is time for something new.

I'm really excited to see what you do with this.
The proportions are super interesting right now, but to be honest, they almost don't read as all being from the same body. Proportions are too variable, in my opinion. But then, from the side it looks amazing; so maybe if you were to just play with the ribcage from the front, and make it a bit wider, and make the arms longer, that could sort out all of the issues I'm having believing the anatomy. Long arms help them basketballers!

Dat. Neck.

Neat style you're going for, but personally I think the neck might be a little too thick :P

I agree on the neck. The tall lanky proportions sell well, but the neck's thickness breaks it for me.

interesting proportions , i also agree with everyone else, the neck is a bit odd...either that or the fact that the heads is proportioned well in conjuction with the height of the body and in general which isnt working well with the neck looks cool

i still think the neck could be made thinner (not longer) to better suit the character, right now it feels a little too top heavy maybe? :P

@ afisher: hahah no idea who he is man. I think I am just gonna turn him into a bit of texture practice.

@ Jackablade: hahaha..... you make a convincing argument.

Just got a bit more sculpt done. Re topo'd. Started with the texturing and once that is done I will finish off the sculpt make a better low, bake, and test in Marmo. Maybe give him some props too.

Wow the bot mentioned "neck". Are they getting smarter?

Seriously though, looking good. And I honestly think he would be more of a basketball player if you made the neck thinner.

HAHA! nice, really like the proportions and the texturing! I agree with a thinner neck, maybe thinner/longer arms and legs will make him more like a basketball player?
btw how did you texture him? zapplink ?

Perhaps he's a circus performer who balances objects on his head, hence his well developed neck and back muscles.

I'd like to request some kinda robot. I don't think I've seen you do a robot yet.
Also, this is pretty alright. As it's just ZB you should try playing with the sss and lighting stuff a bit, see if you can't get get some schmancy lighting going on. Also the third sentence was sarcastic.

-edit-
Ironman doesn't count. I mean like Creaturebox/Ratchet & Clank style or hyper-real District 9/Mechwarrior badassery.
