Building a spartan (FINISHED)
« on: June 28, 2010, 07:36:35 pm »

Alright well I've been looking for a project for awhile, and a few days ago I found an old pic of a spartan wireframe from Halo CE, and that sparked the idea for this project.

It's got some proportion issues at the moment but I'm hoping to get those worked out and the model finished by the end of the week at latest.

EDIT: Thought i'd move some of the more recent project pics to the first post.

EDIT 2: I'm finally finished. You can watch it here >
.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to the whole anim8or community and to steve. Even though this project wasn't finished in anim8or, without it, it never would have been started at all! Thanks to everyone that gave me tips along the way and had interest in the project, you guys kept me motivated!

looks great so far. i have tried to make a spartan at least 3 times. but the helmet is just too frustrating. additionaly, the armor is very complicated. i figured i might try sculpting it . good luck, he definitely is one of the harder characters to make that i know.

Made some considerable progress. Just the helmet left, then I think I'll rework the legs a bit and add some more detail.

Looking good. Do you plan on subdividing the model?

Just finished the model, and remade the lower legs. Now its on to texturing. As for subdividing, I'm not to sure whether I will or not, depends on how the textures look.

That looks superb, Navek. :)

Halo, right?

Can't wait to see some BIGGER renders. ;) And some textures.
Keep up. :)

Simply because of all the triangles and the particular topology you have I would not recommend subdividing.  This seems to be more of a low-poly game model at the moment.
It does look pretty good!  My only worry is that the proportions are a bit off.  I could see him being a bit more built and less skinny.  Perhaps meaning either shorter or a bigger chest, etc.

I read the title and thought this:
This is madness!
Madness?
This! Is! SPARTA!!!

EDIT: Link is broken. Here's a new link:

Thanks for the tips and support guys (and that "this is sparta" movie too that was epic).
I've decided to hold off on the texturing, I was looking at some Halo 3 screenshots and noticed the proportion issues and the details I was missing.
So I'm into a "ReDetailing" phase, to fix up any little problems I can find.

Haha, I don't think you're the only one, made a little edit to help avoid confusion in the future (and ya never know I might try a 300 spartan for my next project).

yah Kreator that looks almost exactly like the halo CE wireframe I started working off.
Anyway progress wise I've finished redetailing the body and legs, and I've started rebuilding the helmet and arms.
