    Video modeling of a full character: Nierd!

    While I was doing the modeling of Nierd, visible in the WIP section of the forum, I recorded the modeling session.

    Because it's a long modeling, I had to speed up the videos, to 3x the default speed... but at 24fps and 1024x768... Sorry about that. Their is no audio comments.
    If you play them at 1/2 speed, it should be ok (this function is available in Quicktime, Windows Media Player, etc..)

    Total time is 3h25, for 9 files. Please, read the description for each video I hope you will like them and help you in learning 3D

    All videos are in Divx 6 codec and the total file size is... 935Mb ;)



    ________________________________________

    Part 1 - The head - 195 Mb - 45 Min
    Download

    The modeling of the head. Everyting was done in edge modeling, using the symmetry with instance. Tools used a lot: edge extrusion, bridge, target weld, tweak, soft selection...



    ________________________________________

    Part 2 - Head accessories - 55 Mb - 12 Min
    Download

    Only the head accessories of the character. I used a lot the Dynamic Geometry, with the thickness and the bridge tool.



    ________________________________________

    Part 3 - The top of the torso and the arms - 148 Mb - 36 Min
    Download

    Still a lot of edge modeling/extrusion, and some tesselation. The difficulty here was the connection for the two arms together, and the muscle flow. I always model "female" bodies and it's hard for me to do muscle "male"...
    The topology was also cleaned with the dissolve and some reconstruction. Thanks to the advanced selection mode of Hex (non quads, etc..)



    ________________________________________

    Part 4 - The end of the torso - 123 Mb - 27 Min
    Download

    The end of the torso with the back. Still a lot of edge extrusions, target weld, bridge and tweak!



    ________________________________________

    Part 5 - The hands - 126 Mb - 24 Min
    Download

    For the hands, I began in Box modeling to have the proportions, but I finished in edge modeling.



    ________________________________________

    Part 6 - The legs - 142 Mb - 27 Min
    Download

    The legs were more difficults than I thought. The muscle flow was harder to create, I had less references for this part (Hey, bodybuilders, post more photos of your legs ;)
    Still edge modeling and the same tools.



    ________________________________________

    Part 7 - The feet - 60 Mb - 12 MinDownload

    For the feet, I changed the technic and did it in box modeling. After doing the connection between the leg and the foot, I felt that something was missing... another toe. It will be added in another video.



    ________________________________________

    Part 8 - The tails - 45 Mb - 9 Min
    Download

    At the beginning of the project, I thought about modeling two tails. But while modeling, I started to dislike the design of these two tails, then, I added two other small ones
    Only polygon extrusion, with variable radius, and at the end, for the master tail, I did a multiple extrusion for the kind of arrows/picks.
    Also, at the beginning of the video, some tweaks on all the body, to make the muscles less sharp-edged and visible.



    ________________________________________

    Part 9 - various accessories - 54 Mb - 11 Min
    Download


    This is the last video about the main modeling. I added some accessories, like the pants (hey, it's the same as Hulk! ) For these accessories, I used the offset tool, which is great when you want to create clothes in a couple of seconds!
    You will also notice that the last foot finger has been added in this video.



    And voila! I hope you will like it as I liked to model it!

    Enjoy!

    No, I don't think I'll do a video of a female character. I have some secrets I don't want to share ;)
