edited March 2011 in Work in Progress #1
i started this in Sketchup but the goemetry just turned into an unworkable mess so i decided to give it a go in MODO 401 instead.. bare with me as i have no idea if this is even going to work or if i have the neccesary skill to pull it off but i figured id give it a go and share the progress with you guys.

also any input/critique along the way is more then welcome as i believe im going to need all the help i can get during this build as this is basicly my first real character mesh.

    Keep it up!

    I found the helmet to be the most difficult, but it looks like you've got it well under way. :thumb:

    Thank you i will ;)

    and yeah i agree the helmet surly has some weird geom and prominent features that are hard to get right, however colbmista was kind enough to share this wonderfull tutorial on the helmet (thanks again btw)

    http://www.bracercom.com/tutorial/content/Ironman_Helmet_Modeling/ironman_helmet_modeling.html

    and it has helped alot even tho i have to fill in some of the blanks myself

    Looking good so far! I've tried my hand at this same model, so I am familiar with what challenges must be overcome. If you ever have any specific questions or need advice, feel free to ask.

    So far, the only pointers I have for you are the following. I am guessing you have yet to get to this point, and since you have visited bracer's site, you know of it, but edge-tightening will make a huge difference once you implement it. Also, you may want to check you're references, as the helmet is made up of several different segments; it can be difficult getting them all modeled and fitted together to be in line with the canon model.

    I look forward to seeing your progress!

    Thank you! and indeed i have a feeling i will be asking questions soon enough so thanks!

    indeed i am saving the edge tightening untill i have the hole helmet modeled in a single plane as i dont need to much geom this early on (it'll just overcomplicate what i need to do for now) and yeah tell me about it, the helmet sure has some mental detail and geom and i wil be fiddling with it for quite a while to get it right!

    and thanks stay tuned i'll try to update frequently ;)

    beveled some edges worked on the Jaw



    also i am aware of the errors it happened when i mirrored but i will sort that so no worries ;)

    I'm not really a fan of Ironman, but I can certainly respect the work that's going into this. I dig the smooth contours and the way that it all sort of flows together, giving it an almost organic feel, while still looking like a rigid material.

    update time..

    lol i wouldnt call myself an iron man fan either but i def like the CGI that has been top notch in both movies.
    also yeah that is my main goal with this build ie mainly tackle some advanced organic shapes and learning and gettin more familliar with Modo.

    im glad you like what you see! be sure to stay tuned for more progress ;)

    Couldn't really say much before, but now that you have more of the helmet completed, I can say that what you have s far looks pretty good. this is turning out to be a very promising model! Care to share the wireframes in your next update?

    UPDATE.

    finished the helmet started on the chest armor,
    i'd also like to introduce Mr Standing Bald :p made with the freeware software makehuman which as you can tell is a great program for fast characters.
    ill be using mine to help with the main suite.

    Looking exceptionally good, well done, it's tough to model that cleanly.
  • Lizzy777Lizzy777451 PNWPosts: 560Member
    Holy crap, you're fast! :thumb:

    Nice work!

    While we're here, can anybody explain why with the new chest-piece, that's exactly the same size as the one before, he needs a new suit? With a triangle shaped headlight?

    well have you seen IM2? the triangular shape and new suite is shown quite well in it.

    anyway...

    Update again..

    main chest armor allmost complete just some minor trinkits missing now
    next ill probably start on the arms or the legs...

    loving MODO btw.

    The armor is looking great, and you are indeed moving fast with this!

  • omnipotentomnipotent561 SwedenPosts: 436Member
    Ok so redid a few things.....

    comments?
  • kevinskikevinski0 Posts: 0Member
    WOW thats so impressive...

    IMHO the last design is the best one. ThereA’s just one thing, the neckarmor, I think it could hold im back from locking around??
  • omnipotentomnipotent561 SwedenPosts: 436Member
    thanks im shocked i made it myself :P

    well i personally think the look far outways the need to look backwards :P

    I like the look so much you just got a desktop out of me for a while! Keep it up I cant wait to see it finished.
  • FirelodeFirelode171 Posts: 0Member
    Looks awesome and really quickly produced too. I haven't seen Iron Man 2 yet is this a new suit from there or is this purely your own design? Either way nice work.
  • KhayKhay0 Posts: 0Member
    This armor looks quite smooth and organic, really beautiful.

    For more protection, dear Mr Stark, how about giving a try with a bevor and gorget? I don't know if it would look as cool as your last model, but it sure would be useful next time you get seriously kicked but some nasty with a power whip.
  • TzarroTzarro171 Posts: 0Member
    Amazing progress; loving it so far! The armor is coming together very nicely, and I can't wait to see how it progesses.
