    The process is up to you. A lot of the members here probably don't care too much about your ground work and just want to see actual model progress. Once you have some of that up you will probably garner a few more comments.

    The votes for the concept to date are:

    Survivor - 13
    Girl next door - 19

    Thus suggesting that the community want to see the girl next door, however the total votes (including descriptions) were:

    Survivor - 24
    Girl next door - 23

    Making it very even, so due to a suggestion made by Omegaminus1 on the epic forum it has been decided to mix these two characters using the looks of the girl next door (from feedback the looks of Allison Stokke and Katie homes gained votes for this concept) and the survivor lost votes due to Michelle Rodriguez and the more "butch" look.

    Artax from the Epic forum also suggested the survivor due to it being more interesting and challenging, and i agree

    Stay tuned for modelling progress

    Creating the base mesh

    I spent a good deal yesterday roughing out the general form for the model seen below:

    [​IMG]

    Obviously this isnt complete, im looking to get a decent enough looking base mesh so i can get it into ZBrush and do the good stuff

    An update post of the completed base mesh will hopefully be posted in 15 or 24 hours :D

    So heres an update of the work done today, i was putting a lot of it together today as well as doing lots of tweaking that i think has imporved the shape but still some way to go, need to start adding detail to the mesh to where it is a consistent amount over the mesh, i.e. having the high poly done

    So i havent updated in a while, no worries ive been busy with other modules and the report writing for this project , the joy :D Lately i have taken all feedback into consideration and attempted to refine the model to look better, but ive had to press on to keep with my schedule. The low poly model has been unwrapped and ive created a normal map for the model seen below:

    Comments welcome and will be considered having enough time, but for now i am pushing ahead with this project to stay on track, next up is the diffuse map, i created a real basic base colours one, below:

    [​IMG]

    When viewing the model in the viewport the material is fine but when it comes to rendering all the colours bloom bright, anyone have any advice on this?
