So I was waiting for my video file to render while I was at my course the other day so I pulled out my tablet and sketched up a guy I'd like to call 'Sad swordsman.' It might be because his sword is overly large or maybe someone made fun of his tiny, tiny legs but he is definitely sad. Here is the first sketch of him.



I decided that I'd model him in 3d and do a hand drawn textures deal somewhat similar to what Gearbox did with the Borderlands textures, and then maybe animate a run cycle or pose him in a cool way. Anyway this topic can just chronicle Sad swordsman's journey from concept image while waiting for a render into final 3d form.

Also hopefully it'll attract some people who like to model in 3d or animate and such like that. I know we have a few members that do this kind of thing, be nice to see more of it.

Ears.

 Modelling so far. It's not an especially fancy or detailed model, obviously, but it follows the style of the drawing itself. Once textured and such it should look much better. I have some simple material colours on there at the moment but it's not vital to show that. I'll make another update when I've textured him.

Just a quick render to see how he's looking with edges and a couple of completed textures.

Having some terribly annoying problems with Lightwave on my home PC. Apparently it won't accept my photoshop texture files. :(

Going to have to sort this out.

Looks great from the front, but are you going to thicken him up at all?  Would look like a gingerbread man from the side.
keep posting...
