Hello polycounters, this will be my second attempt at creating a halo spartan character, hopefully of my own design

here was my first practice model, spent about a month trying out hard surface in zbrush as well as substance painter for the first time (amazing program, a must try)

after a lot of mistakes and a brutal but sorely needed and appreciated critique from an old teacher, learned a lot, had my eyes opened, and i am ready to give it another go, but this time spending more than a month...

heres the anatomy sculpt i have so far, needs some more lovin...

    It looks pretty darn good at this stage! I would have to nit pick to give crits so here goes :) Everyone does the start pose differently and I am not a real fan of the floating doll look. atm the legs look weird and its the pose not the sculpt. I think if your figure looks grounded from the beginning that helps lots. The face is super correct but has very little personality. The suit is exceptional and the face doesn't match that. The suit should amplify the character and right now the obliques area looks female (not the anatomy just the suit). You have to be very careful where you put accents. The detail of the suit on the back doesnt support back muscles and is very noisy, no visual rest there.

    Really outstanding start man!
    Cheers

    ahh yea i see what you mean about the noisiness of the back of the suit as well as the obliques, i will def work on that and now that i look at the face again the doesnt seem to have too much personality @[email protected] def need to work on that. And how would u go about not having the floating doll look?
    thanks for the crits =D really appreciate them =D

    I just realized your username is "milk" in Korean.

    kkkkkk

    He seems a little too short in the torso, proportionally. This is assuming we want a ridiculously heroically proportioned Spartan. Is there still room to stretch him out a bit?

    nice start! work on the silhouette some more, right now every shape blends into the next

    also you got a lot of symmetrical shapes you should break up, for instance thighs and lower legs are kinda symmetrical same for the biceps and forearm

    Well I told you it was nit picking :)
    The face is way better than the first version at the top of the thread, I just think you could pick out a 'type' and push it even further.
    The stance might be grounded but I cant tell. I found with sculpting if I give the pose weight it helps with the sculpting because it is all air anyhow. It looks like the Da Vinci man pose. You should suit yourself but if you push the pelvis forward slightly, have the feet flat on the ground, head slightly forward and check that the side view is balanced it does wonders for the perception of weight.

    update, made the forms a bit softer to have it more realistic and able to move to make it feel more like a tech suit not armor
    will start working on the face now and will try to make it have more personality
    c&c welcome and appreciated =)

    nice progress and the shapes are much better now. If you can do a clean model pass, some of the parts feel rather sculpted than fabricated.

    Also take a closer look to the neck area, the whole head/neck transition feels clunky

    the feeld feel odd, i think the armor should follow the natural shape of the foot more.


    Aaaaand your crosspost is in the wrong thread ;)

    hahaha how embarrassing @[email protected] thanks though for pointing that out to me Neox

    yea good point ill take another look at the neck to make the transition from suit to body more... natural? and yea the feet were bugging me but wasnt quite sure of how to deal with it... but ill try some diff stuff

    thanks =D
