Starting on the sculpting for the clothing now. I think I'm fairly happy with the left leg, not too tight or loose. I'm going to have the legs symmetrically textured to save texture space so only really need to sculpt one of the legs. But if I find that the pattern on the legs looks way too symmetrical I may still leave the normal map symmetrical but make the colour not symetrical. But that will wait for next week during the texturing stage.

The much finer details such as cloth texture and such I will be doing in photoshop with the nvidia normal map plugin rather than sculpting, as my system and Blender can't handle very complex sculpting.

Anywho, hope to have the high poly model ready by the weekend.

More cloth sculpting in Blender. Going fairly course for this sculpting as cloth generally doesn't really have much of a specuar highlight to make the details stand out.

Time is fleeting ...

Have to keep control ...

Starting on the low poly. I prefer to triangulate my mesh from the beginning since I feel it gives me more control.
1500 tris, with 900 taken up by the hands.

Just under 5,000 tris. Looks to be well on target for polycount, probably will have enough polys left over at the end to add more roundness to the legs.

Big-Toe: I set the low poly mesh to x-ray in Blender, so it shows over all the other meshes. Easier to see the forms by toggling that option, but I turn it off when building the low poly so I can see the surface of the high poly mesh that i'm building over.

xxxcubanxxx: Thank you. Most of it is done by extruding verts/edges and poly pushing. But the arms started from a cylinder.

Working on the weapon low poly meshes now.

Great work man. I love how clean your mesh is. Can't wait to see the final product!

Got sidetracked recently with the release of Blender 2.5 beta0. Decided to model the low poly weapons in it to test it.
Hope they add the mouse gesture system back into 2.5 that blender 2.4x has. so you only need to right click a line to start moving objects. I find this much faster than looking for th 'g' key.

Anywho, about 2,700 tris for both weapons. CAn probably cut this down a little more, but will wait until the wole low poly mesh is done before doing any further optimisations.

Blender 2.5 had some issues with the multires mesh for the sculpted areas (Not surprising since it's the first beta release), reverted back to using blender 2.49b.

Got the low poly weapon models done.

Now onto the final bits like the belt and such than onto uv unwrapping and texture baking.

Got the low poly mesh just about done.
Have another 1200 tris left to play with, will use them to smooth some areas off and flatten the shading on the mechanical bits.

Now to the uv's.
