Completed 3D Monster Character

So the character design I decided to go with is the ‘Mary Shelley’ Frankenstein’s Monster. Looking at the description, I had to try and draw what the words said.

I decided to go for a Sherlock style design, as the description does say that frankienstien tries to act like a human by interegrating into human social life.

I then developed that idea into a a more stylised concept, giving this character a more Gothic feel to it.

I decided to further the Sherlock style concept and make him look a bit more like the real Frankenstein. I mainly focused on the head of this character.

I decided to further my design by making it look more like frankienstien. I got inspiration from the TV show ‘The Walking Dead’ and other zombie medias, as I wanted to show exposed flesh. My Sherlock style Frankenstein didn’t really show exposed flesh, so I decided to show it in this design.

My fourth rough concept (Zombie-Skeleton style)

 

I furthered my design even more, as it says in the brief that Frankenstein stands at 8-feet. So I made him slightly taller, as well as making his head smaller.

My sixth rough concept (Zombie-Skeleton style)

I decided to give this character some cloths, as he is meant to integrate into human social life. As well as this,  I also gave him long black hair, as the breif staes that he has long flowing black hair and black lips.

I decided to not go for the style were my character’s body is half human and half skeleton. So I decided to go for a more human  character. This because my two coloured designs shown above would have been a bit challenging and complicated to model. So, I decided to make him a bit more human, by completing the torso and shoes. The rib cage will still be there, as it says on the brief that his flesh is exposed.

Here is a new side view of my sixth rough concept (Zombie-Skeleton style)

 

 

I started modeling the ribcage and spin first, as they were the most complicated part of the character. Using stll photos of sketons as reference, I boxed modelled the skeleton by extruding out.

I then started modelling the torso.Using the image plane of my character in the fron and side view, I was able to model the torso.

I then duplicated special the body and started modeling the head.

The head was quite tricky to model, as my character design didn’t have enough information. So I decided to look at the origianal film ‘Frakenstien to see how to model it. Using head modelling tutorials to help with the eye socket, I was able to complete the head.

The hair was another tricky part, as it needed to look long and look like it is flowing. I decided to look at Maya tutorials and see how to basically model hair using planes..

Using an image plan of sneakers, I was able to model the shoes with just simple cylinder extrusions

After modelling everything, I went on to texture. I had difficulties texturing the blood on the skin, as my UV’s got really messed up. So, I decided to use simple shaders. I used blinn for the hair and skin and pong for the eyeballs and skeleton.

Here is my completed model in four different views and turntable.
