Indeed I did. Sore ass, sore fingers, tired eyes from hours in front of my 15" laptop :-P . I'm thinking it will pay off though. Seriously, thank you for the encouragement.

Edit: HornOxx You must be referring to my Slug 3D buddy Forrest Gimp. He is awesome. It just took me all day to get that. :mrgreen:

Expanding my approach to greater detail. Partial body only. Next post will have eyes, feet, facial topology, and a slug at the tongue tip :)

The wire mesh looks decent but I can see that before it is ready for rendering, a lot of fine tuning would be needed.

Just an exercise with Vertex Tools. Six sided polygon. Playing with soft selection radius.

More Training exercises..

Needed improvements are

1 A number of loops remain open around the eyes and mouth
2 There are poles that have more than 4 sides. This is cause distortion in the final SUbD
3 Loops are not all parallel. Again this will cause distortion

Overall I'm happy with the natural looking form

Very good head! Is there some way the mirror boudary is controlled to not have a visible change in the surfaces' angle? The ear proxy doesn't show much what you did. That must have been a harder part.

Thank you. I find that that boundary edge between the two mirrored halves to be a problem. I try to manipulate that edge with the 2 halves in place to see if its either raised or depressed on the plane. Once I'm happy then the 2 components can be exploded and joined

I had done the ear a while back as another exercise. I just stuck it on to complete the profile. My goal here was not to produce a finished product, but to gain experience with quad modelling and all its intricacies.

I made a genuine purchase, why didn't I provide the code?

Postby Dong su » Fri Mar 26, 2021 8:16 am

Even though you sold the vertex tool and received payment,
You didn't give me a code email.
Homepage inquiries and Facebook inquiries are also unanswered. When are you going to give me the code?

Haven't used SubD in a while.... knocking off the rust. Mid century modern style sculpture. Bird was SubD and Vertex Tools. Posting the proxy for the bird and a quickie render of the finished model. Another piece for the parts file. Call me the king of simple stuff :lol: .

Wondered who’d noticed the sideways tail ;) . Worked from a photo of a piece from the 1960’s and that’s how the tail was done go figure ? Might change it might not.... haven’t made up my mind yet. Would be a pretty quick change :fro: .

Nice. What a good reminder to keep it simple. SUbD does most of the work if we just keep it proportional. A good presentation that took a simple model to another level. Thanks for posting
