Character Creation for Games @ Gnomon

I just started classes again and am in Rich Diamant (Lead Character Artist Naughty Dog)'s Character Creation for Games class. We started a class blog- everyone posts stuff. Look for mine there! (Click on the subject link)

Enjoy :)

WIP - Marion Cotillard model head model
(our first assignment) so far:

Update: 2-7-10
I didn't want to post this above the latest post so here it is, my fixtures to Marion Cotillard model. I don't think I have the likeness anymore... and I think I missed a few things Rich said and sorry Rich, for not adding a clavicle or upper shoulders..

Thanks for viewing :)

Some current WIP

WIP (work-in-progress): A pregnant woman modeled after the sculpture (see previous entries). I had-- maybe still have an obsession with modeling pregnant women.
This is a personal project I started. A 3D rendition of Bougereau's painting Springtime (1873). I ideally, I'd like to do all the cupids around her, but for now, I'm focusing on the anatomy of the pose. The face is not even there yet, I know. Here is the original painting:

Here is another but only a head study, this is actress Justine Waddell, She's pretty beautiful. I believe she is in some British movies and I love her costumes especially in [David Fincher & Spike Jonze present director] Tarsem Singh's The Fall (2006). Gorgeous movie.

I love doing faces and heads. I need to work on those ears. I'm going to add some hair to her when I get the chance and retopologize.. and UV and texture and light AND render. But for now, I'm just modeling. I got some more stuff on my external harddrive that I don't have at the moment. I can upload them sometime next week. I need to produce some clean models though. People like clean models.
