Anatomy Study WIP 2

Some more progress on this sculpt
I've never tried to model male genitalia before so that was a new challenge
Lots of detailing still to do. Fingers and toes especially.
Some muscles are incorrect, the forearms are weird.

Anatomy Study WIP

An anatomy study
I'm trying to practice eyeballing proportions and creating a face without reference
About 4-5 hours spent on this so far

Omar WIP3

Some more sculpting. I did a quick pose and expression because i was getting sick of him staring blankly. Finding the likeness to be very difficult to acheive, maybe because in all my reference material he has a beard, although I wouldn't want to have to rely on facial hair to sell the likeness. The neck is not quite right. At this point I'm just happy that he looks like a human being.

Omar WIP2

I've made some progress on Omar. He now looks a bit more like the man himself.
The actor's name is Michael K Williams
I sculpted in a beard but I will probably use a hair plugin for proper hair for the final render.
He has no eyebrows yet so he still looks funny. His cranium still is not quite the right shape.

Omar WIP

I've been watching The Wire for the last few weeks and I'm thoroughly addicted.
It truly is the greatest television show ever put to screen.
I've decided to have a go at sculpting one of the best charatcers in the show, Omar,
I'm not very good at doing likenesses from photos, but this one is going ok so far.
I'm trying to get the basic likeness correct before I put in any details, it's not there yet,
especially around the mouth, but if it comes out well it would be good on the showreel.
Also he looks stoned around the eyes, that will need to be fixed
