Cobra Predator - Custom P2 Closed Mouth - 10/06/2012 Final Decent Camera, Decent Pictures

I'm really liking this custom job. The crest looks amazing! One thing though. Maybe it's me or how the armature is, but it looks like your pred is tilting his head up quite a bit. If this is going to be cast as a mask, it might be a problem when you wear it. Might be me, though...

Thanks man. Nah, the sculpt is not tilting its just the camera angle (I thought that myself once after taking the pictures but check the sculpt and everything was A-OK lol Thanks for your heads up and feedback man.

Thanks Tom, its slowly getting there.
 
Thanks for the great feedback guys.

It's time for an update :)

I got a couple of hours on this today and cracked on with building up on the other side (right side of the sculpt) to even it up. Also re-sculpted the center line of the crest as it seemed to go up and the off center. The details around the mandibles where also added. To finish off, I also finished off the top row of dread hole and then added in ALL the other dread holes around the head. Anyway, here's some pictures....

Not a prob man! Just lookin out for ya. :) I'd hate for you to overlook it. Glad to see your on top of it bud! (y) No prob on the diagram. It was a quick 3 minute setup.
 
Update time!!!! yay!

Ok, so took Quakevirus' advice and diagram (thanks again) and evened up the rear dread lock holes so they are now even. I have now added in the skin texture to the crest area of the forehead and started giving the sculpt it own 'pop' so to speak, taking it away from the 'P2' look and towards the custom feel I am going for lol Still needs a lil more smoothing over in places and as always the detailing work is still yet to come. Anyway, I 'll shut up now and get to the pics....

Ah, almost forgot, the pictures below have been posted as development pics (got more done than what I thought I would between updates lol) and sorry for the big size and vast amount lol OK i think I'm done .....

Finally, this was more accident as we had a power cut while I was taking pictures, which then made me think about taking pictures in different lights and light angles...... (sorry for the bad pic quality done on camera with out flash.

Thanks, the cobra eyes are great to work with. They give the extra added feel of evil, in my opinion. I was thinking of using the same design as contacts for my predator. Great minds.


Nice,
very interesting :D

greetings Michael

Thanks man really appreciate it.

Nah, never really trying to sculpt anything but when I was in school, if there was a ball of bluetak on the desk you can just about guarantee that I would start moulding it into something like a face, hand etc what ever I fancied at the time lol I took Art at GCSE and got high grades from it but sculpting never really played a BIG part in it lol

Thanks again for the great feedback bud
 
Pretty freakin gnarly dude. I was waiting patiently for those textures to star making there way in and you didn't disappoint. Can't wait to see more.
