Hello and welcome to creating a male character turnaround modeling sheet
In this Friday Citizen Exclusive Tutorial, we take a look at creating a male character turnaround modeling sheet that can then be used for modeling purposes using the software, GIMP, using solely a hard edge circle brush.
What is covered?
In this tutorial, Tim Von Rueden takes you though first creating a blank canvas and how laying down some guidelines will set the pace for the rest of the piece in setting up proportions and an easy to follow character lineart. This will be down by sketching a rough outline of a character, cleaning up that lineart, and then using mirror techniques to quicken the process.
↓ Here are some of the progress screens from the tutorial ↓
Create straight lines in Gimp by clicking on the screen, hold shift and control, then click where you would like the line to end.
I lay down a sketchy version first to get a good shape of the character, and then I go over it on a new layer with cleaner line work.
Add basic guidelines to help create the side view based on the front views proportions
Creating the back view from copying and flipping the front view. Erase the inner lifework and replace it with back lineart.
Thanks again for the many requests for this type of tutorial and I hope it proves useful!
