Final Product What You'll Be Creating
In this lesson you’ll learn how to create He-Man’s arms and hands. Due to the specific nature of an action figure’s limbs, careful attention must be payed when creating the overall shape and topology of the arms, wrists and hands, as well as the joints themselves. Representing one of the most challenging aspects of building this character.
You’ll start by blocking out the basic shape and proportions of the upper arm and forearm sections and then begin refining the mesh to create the Deltoids, Biceps, Triceps and forearm muscles before moving on to create the always challenging Hands and fingers.
This tutorial series covers the creation of an awesome He-Man Action Figure using Maya. This unique series will walk you through the entire process of modeling your very own action figure inspired by the iconic 80′s character.
Rather then relying on digital sculpting techniques, author Soni Kumari will show you how to create the character using traditional poly modeling techniques. The He-man figure poses a number of unique challenges not found in your typical character modeling tutorial, from inter-locking limb joints, to stylized anatomy and plastic hair. You’ll learn how to tackle each of these to achieve that classic ‘action figure’ look!
