Dynamic Designs.....Sort of???
« on: August 15, 2009, 03:33:33 AM »
Hi everyone,

Back to skinning mainstream characters and focusing on skinning all of the characters from Project Superheros and its spin offs...Wow the universe is really growing...

First up....Captain Future...Who was this guy and who is he now??

I've always been a big fan of your work man...but I gotta tell ya somethings on this skin just kinda don't work. Maybe its the photoskinning here thats needs work especially the face but also the bottom of his "trunks" need to be defined and the colors need to be cranked up...a lot. And the lightning bolt on his jersey needs to be worked on and made larger as well. ;)

Ok everyone,

Re-tooled Captain Future a bit based on the feed back.  Also, changed the mesh.  Let me know your thoughts......

Hi everyone,

Another character leaps from the pages of Project Superpowers into Freedom Force....This time it is The Arrow...

Any feedback is appreciated.

I'm still not too crazy about Capt Future. To me he looks too flat.  Not that he's missing highlights... but rather lowlights and/or shading to help bring in the depth.  The Arrow, suffers less from the problem... but with Capt Future... it stands out because of the exposed skin areas.   The opposite would be to increase the highlights... but IMO that'll pull away from your style.

I'm not familiar with the character, but I like the skin. Suggestion though, maybe darken up the forehead, but otherwise looks really good.

Are the faces photoskinned? They have alot of character and add alot to the skin.

I agree with HQ though,  i think there should be some more shading just to enhance the sense of form.

The Arrow looks to be wearing a cowl? Some draping Highlights and shadows would enhance this IMO.

You liked PS, eh?

Did you ever read Tom Strong? It basically has the same characters, since theyre public domain. To be more accurate, the miniseries Terra Obscura has the same characters, but Tom Strong is where they started.

Any chance of us getting some Tom Strong love?

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for the feedback I appreciate it.

HQ/Artemis/Cyburn, I am not an artist so any suggestions or direction you might provide would be most appreciated.  If I were to play with low lights/shading and draping highlights how would I best approach this?  Any suggestions on tutorials?

Hi HQ,

I rotate between Strangefate, C6 and Googleplex. Also, I tweak the base with either photos or the face bits pack.

Hi everyone,

Back with Captain Future....I played a bit with shadows and highlights and believe this version is better.....

And also I have for your review, the Super American......

Nice work SSD :thumbup:
Very nice to see the Project Superpowers gettin' some spotlight ;)
I want to do some myself,but I'm kinda busy for a minute :cool:
Keep it up,the more PSP the better :D
Also,just thought of this,but maybe a hex of Ren's Superman would work better for Cap Future,just a suggestion.

Hey Sioux, I like how you're progressing with your stuff. The only question I have is: why don't you ever post the pic in your threads instead of the link?

It makes it a lot easier for lazy people like me that don't like to click extra links  :lol: But nicely done

Hi everyone,

Seems like I have been gone forever from the boards.....Pee Wee football is really taking the time but we are having fun.  In between practice and work I have been able to pull together another of the Project Superheros characters.  This time, the first of the adult women to return....Masquerade!



As always, any thoughts or suggestions are most appreciated!

Hmmm...seems like about time for a release as I have several skins/hexes complete and ready to go.

Hey SCD, I just started reading PS, and I am really enjoying it, so I am excited to see that you are skinning these characters.  I can't wait until you get to Black Terror.  He's my favorite so far. :D  These look great, man!  I think you could thicken the mask on Masquerade a bit, but that's the only nit I can see to pick.

Hi Benton,

Thanks for the kind words and suggestion. 

I have already done black terror.  He is at NPI.  I do plan to redo him at some point with cutlass.

Wow!  Look at all of these PS characters!  These are beautiful, SCD!  Black Terror and Samson are especially awesome.
