3d reference - face loops by Athey 3d reference - face loops by Athey
So this is a sample of my next project. People are welcome to use my loops as reference, if you so choose. Whatever.

I love this girls face. I'd post other views, but I got this off the pay section of 3d.sk and I don't think they'd appreciate me giving them away for free.

Her eyes are awesome though. Can you believe that's her real eye color? Crazy.

Anyway - this is me being OCD and anal, and planning out my edgeloops before I even open my 3d app... cuz I'm crazy and weird like that.

For animation purposes, would include an eye mask (section that would contain both eyes) , laugh line (over top of the nose and slightly below chin (commonly the wrinkles seen when smiling)), and avoid losing loops around the lips (top of the lip should not have that divide in the maxilla), otherwise topology looks to follow how facial structure supports.

lol - well, that's one way to use it. It's a stock image, so I hardly care if some site is using it in an article about DNA and face recognition.

It said in the description - it's from www.3d.sk
It's a pay site, but it's absolutely fantastic for human reference. Even animal and costume reference. They've got LOADS of things on there - really fantastic resource.

This is an awesome reference image, I was wondering if you had a side view of the same face? With or without the topolgy is fine :)

AHHH! I so need the other reference pictures! The topology on this helps out so much! And its probably a good thing that you map out your edge flow before modeling. I haven't noticed a tri or an n-gon yet. This is perfect for animation!

LOL, I thought, that girl is like the perfect model, being all absolutely symmetrical! Then I look again and the face just has been mirrored, except for her hair.

The edgeloops look like they are where they're supposed to be (with all my expertise)

Are those pics off 3d.sk expensive? Seems like a great resource for textures

It is SO worth every penny. I LOVE that site.
It's only really worth it if you at least get the 3 month recurring membership (it's 59 Euros... I really don't remember what that translated to in dollars, you can do the math). You can always cancel right before it renews if you want.

But if you only get the 1 month, you don't have access to the zip file download option, and can only grab 250 pics a day (and believe me, you will burn through that in NO time)

With the 3 mo recurring membership you can download up to 8GB a day. The zip file set that this girl (Etela) came in was 2.5GB on its own, and has 314 photos in it.

In any case, I love this site. It's the absolute best collection of reference I've ever come across for human modeling.

They've got packs of clothing, period costumes, weapons, and even animals on there too.

My work used to have a subscription to the place and I got hooked, so after we dropped it at work, I went and got my own subscription. :)

It's Etela. She's got her main set, the poses set, and a movie set. The main set's zip file is 2.5gb all on its own - lol. Huge. Loads of pictures.

did you do a little cleanup too? seems REALLY symmetrical...
Reply

Athey Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
You mean on the photo? Of course. I always go through several tests to make sure the face still looks right when mirrored, in photoshop, since I'm going to be using symmetry in max.

You'd be amazed how often you take a photo that looks straight on - front, and mirror it and it's actually quite asymmetrical, and if you tried to model just half that face with symmetry, it would look weird. So I go through several photo editing steps to get it so that it still looks 'right' when mirrored in photoshop, before I move forward.
