Hello. I have been working on a character (The AIRMAN) for a while now. He was born in a laptop at an undisclosed location during Operation Enduring Freedom. We are both currently enlisted in the United States Air Force. He is a "one striper" which places him very low on the food chain in terms of rank. I created him in the free, Open Source, 3D creation suite called Blender. I realize you are all busy...anyone's advice is greatly appreciated. Anyways here he is:
...and here is the initial sketch that I used as concept art during modeling:
...and here is an image of him in his chemical gear (just the mask for now):
....and here is the start of my expression studies. This is derived from an article I once read which discussed some of the tactics used by Ardman Animation Studios (creators of Chicken Run) in regards to thought expressed through eye behavior. Psychologists once studied the direct relation to eye movemnt and the thought process. The result was a basic breakdown in which I plan to use as a foundation of the AIRMAN's expressions. Anyways...here is ummm....my uh...thought sheet?
...and here is a closer shot of him:
...and here is a sneek peek at the AIRMAN's friend..."BROX". He is the reason why the AIRMAN throws all of his money away on gym supplements. His last name is "Broxon" (pronounced "brocks-in") but the AIRMAN just calls him "Brox".
...and here is some more facial expression shtuff I have been working on for the guys...
...and last but not least a closeup of Brox...
Well, that about wraps it up. Let me know what you all think. Take care, and thank you all for taking the time to view my work.
