HAWKGIRL by DouglasShuler HAWKGIRL by DouglasShuler
I started this piece over a year ago, but never took the time to see it through completion. I rebuilt Hawkgirl twice while building the piece, initially using Victoria 3 and then completely revamping her with the Victoria 4 model. I wasn't able to locate a Hawkgirl model online, so I ended up modelling the helmet and mace, and building the costume textures from scratch. The bracers are from the Golden Arrow set, and the belt is from Uzilite.

*EDIT* Based on feedback, I made a few small changes. Thanks Isikol for the keen eye.

Please?? It would be really great, there r really no Hawkgirl masks available online, and most of the people's modelling skills aren't good enough to make one, including me =( I will credit you in my art and everything, I promise!

Great job. The helmet and the mace came out great. Love the texturing. Did you do any post-render work too?
Reply
:icondouglasshuler:
DouglasShuler Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, I always do extensive postwork on my pieces. I like to add atmosphere effects, mess with the backdrops, and fix Poser's oddities (malformed knees, for example). I also tend to paint my own hair because digital hair just doesn't flow very well.

Makes sense. I just barely started doing 3D characters. So far I've been trying either just modeling from scratch or bring Poser figures into other modeling software to correct joint animation glitches. I still haven't had great success with either approach yet. I still haven't decided which is more labor intensive: painting hair or modeling it. Both seem to take a lot of effort. The next render I do I might try starting with modeled hair and just retouching it. I'm still learning to do characters though. This Hawkgirl came out great. I hope someday I can do stuff like that.

That I can understand, the digital one are always too stiff.
Did it take you a long time to be able to draw hair? Could you sudjest a point where to start to a newby? :)

It's been a lot of years since I started, so I can't remember the exact tutorials I took my techniques from. However, I know there are a number of good videos on Youtube about digital painting. I'd recommend starting there first, or possibly Renderosity (if they still have a tutorials section).
