[Narrative] 39: Male Character Modelling; Body Progress 01

So far I have completed the shirt and the bow tie, meanwhile the apron is in progress.

[Narrative] 38: Male Character Modelling; Head Progress 05 - COMPLETE

I am aware of several errors in the model, the most significant of these exist as part of the hair - these include: a triangle at the back of the head and the hair wrapping around the back of the head in an odd manner, and the likely unnecessary high level of geometry used to make up the hair, among other errors I may not be aware of. 

An error that does not require remedying is the width of the face, this is purely the fault of the character's symmetry at an orthographic level.

It is hoped that I will have the full character model complete by tomorrow at 2pm, at which point I plan to receive guidance from Alan concerning fixing my model's issues.

Since my last post I have given the nose nostrils, completed the throat, modelled the hair, modelled the eyebrows and added the eyes. The eyebrows had to be scaled up because in three dimensions they looked too small and feminine.

[Narrative] 37: Male Character Modelling; Head Progress 04

With the head nearly complete, I will soon be able to move on to modelling the hair and body - a process which will be much quicker and easier due to their relative simplicity.

While some things worked in 2D, they did not work in 3D; such as the lack of detail of the ears, the size of the nose, the lack of an iris and the angle of the ears. 

I have also incorporated a subtle love heart shape into the design of the nose. At the time of posting, the throat is currently in progress.
