Outside the Box:
A Peek Inside My Brain
Next comes the spiky front part of the chest. I scale/weld some verts and turn some edges to come out with…
Prepping for the rest of the front spikes I divide some edges to give me some real-estate.
Now after turning a couple edges I see how I’m going to handle the chest/sternum area without adding too much geometry…
Of course why do both sides at once so I delete the right side this time since the left looks more appealing (don’t ask why…)
I need some more definition here at the side of the chest so I do a divide edge and pull the vertex out for more volume.
I turn this edge to give the neck opening a harder feel to it. More shell like.
Time to coppy and mirror the other side to see how we’re doing with the overall shape. I frequently do this to see how the pieces look togetehr rotating the view and looking at the shape from all angles. This is just a good thing to do to make sure you’re not favoring an up, down, left or right slant to your shape.
I like it. Think we’ll let him live. This time.
Let’s zoom in and slide the copied half as close to the first half as we can and attach it to that half.
Scale the verts along the x and hit ‘selected and our torso is now joined.
Well, that’s it for this installment. Another third, next week. Tune in. Same Bat time. Same Bat channel.
