• My female medic model

[b]IMPORTANT SENTENCE: YES, THERE WILL BE A VOICE.[/b] I've been working on a female Medic for some time now. It's related to my master's project, for which I'll be creating a female Medic and Heavy, from concept to something playable. I picked these two because they represent a pretty good contrast in personality and body type. My tools are 3ds Max, Photoshop and Mudbox. Here's the concept sketches I drew in order to decide which characters would work best for my project, and what kinds of features they might have.

Sort of like Magda Goebbels in Der Untergang.

Right now I'm texturing, and I'm getting there with the diffuse and normal maps, but I have a lot of detail to go.

It was good modeling practice and I learned a lot from it, but after giving a lot of thought to these designs, that's probably one of the last classes I would want to make. The feedback on her is the most varied and contradicted, and that raises a lot of issues about her personality, fitting with the TF2 visual style and time period, and practicality in terms of modeling/rigging. :C The only thing I have left to add is: lol genderbend Hope you like it. I'd love to hear your thoughts. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [b]Edit: Based on some of the feedback I've gotten so far, I've made some changes to the model. I'll leave the originals up for comparison right now, but I made her eyes a tiny bit bigger and decreased the slant. I also made her chin a bit smaller, and her neck also less wide. Increased the height of her lips to make them appear a little bigger. Her hands are still the same height, but I decreased the width a little more. I'll see if I can get away with more eventually. And I modeled her legs more thoroughly to give them more definition.

[img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/art2/head_changes.jpg[/img] Added more butt definition: [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/art2/butt_changes2.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/art2/butt_changes.jpg[/img] [b] Adjusted base colors [/b] [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/art2/new_colors.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/art2/new_colors2.jpg[/img] Comparison with the male Medic: [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/art2/male_female_comparison.jpg[/img] Nearly finished: [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/tf2/medic_renders.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/tf2/full_body_render.jpg[/img] High poly model in Zbrush. I ditched Mudbox for it, since it actually lets you tesselate your objects and doesn't make my computer crash when I subdivide D: [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/tf2/highpoly.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/tf2/message.jpg[/img] ---------------------------------------------------------------------- I went back and crazied her face up a little more, to make her features more distinctive.

Still needs more detailed and neater normal maps. [img]http://www.koopatorivm.com/misc/art/tf2/model_preview.jpg[/img]
Fugly piece of shit. Needs to more boner-inducing. [editline]10:16PM[/editline] Pleeeaaaase
Holy shit. First off, fucking awesome sketches! Secondly, you have serious modelling skills. Goddamn.
[QUOTE=smurfy;16863722]Fugly piece of shit. Needs to more boner-inducing. [editline]10:16PM[/editline] Pleeeaaaase[/QUOTE] No.
Great work, are you going to add a soundpack too?
That's some pretty impressive sketches, and the model looks really good. Great work there. I can't really think of anything to add, it fits perfectly into the TF2 style.
she looks...slightly wide... but great model!
It looks great. It fits into TF2's style. I look forward to it. Just one question, you are going to try and get a soundpack yes?
Looks great, and isn't one of those anime models.
Voicepack? NINJA >>
Spot on for the style. Also looks like a good symmetry of the male medic.
That's amazing.
[QUOTE=karimatrix;16863759]she looks...slightly wide... but great model![/QUOTE] Unfortunately, she has to fit the general proportions of the original character so that I don't run into problems with the animations. I'm sure I'll be able to make some adjustments once I see how it goes, though. :> And yeah, I'll be releasing sounds. I guess there's a sound booth here at the school. I speak German and all, but hopefully I'll be able to get a volunteer for the voice.
[QUOTE=smurfy;16863722]Fugly piece of shit. Needs to more boner-inducing. [editline]10:16PM[/editline] Pleeeaaaase[/QUOTE] Ignore this man. This is an excellent model, and fits perfectly into the art style. I look forward to the finished product.
Holy fucking shit that's amazing, I wouldn't mind getting ubercharged by her. :q:
Wow, the first attempt at female TF2 characters I actually like! :biggrin:
Facepunch, you surprise me. I thought we'd get a lot of posts like the first one, or like you'd see in Ayes' thread. Alia, nice job, but... I feel it's lacking something. I don't know what, so I can't say what, but it just feels like it's lacking something. Maybe you'll get it with texturing and all as this progresses. All I guess I can say is it feels like it's missing that "Valve touch". Wish I could be more constructive, but, alas, I can't. :frown:
Bigger tits or no deal, they are way too small.
Those are some manly hands. I guess they get the job done eh? :smug:
Everything but the gloves look great.

Something's not right with it.
Well fuck, it's a non anime, actually good genderbend!
Shit is perfect. Fix up the hands a little
[QUOTE=The Inzuki;16863949]Those are some manly hands. I guess they get the job done eh? :smug:[/QUOTE] Haha, yes. The sad thing is, they're QUITE A DEAL smaller than the original character's hands D: It's not hard to make them smaller, I just need to be sure that they will work before I make any more changes.

[/QUOTE] No problem, I appreciate it. All I can think is that it's still very flat with the coloring still, and normal maps do help a lot with detail as well since it's fairly low-poly. I think that will help make a difference.
Looks good!

I think the textures kinda lack definition. All the TF2 characters have very sharply defined angles and outlines, but this looks a bit.. I dunno, just seems off. But as you said, it still needs work. I can't wait to see what it looks like in game :)
I'm liking it so far. Not entirely sure why a good deal of female Medic designs opt for that hairstyle, though. Yeah, it fits the time of TF2, but it's also unusually tidy for someone who's average workday alternates between hiding behind a fat russian guy and running from loonies with flamethrowers. I also can't help but imagine anyone with that haircut calling me "Dearie" and sending me a pair of hand-knitted mittens every christmas, but that may just be a personal problem.
Looks great.
Well Helllooo~ [i]Nurse![/i]
