As I mentioned yesterday, I was planning to start working on my entry for Polycount comp: Guitar Hero, and now I’m just buzzing in to report some progress I made today. I chose to do Eddie Hazel, the guitarist of Funkadelic + Parliaments. However, I ended up with cartoony character, because I figured it would be fun to exaggerate the proportions and get even funkier look. I couldn’t really find many reference images of Mr. Hazel, but I did find a couple of videos and in most of them he wears a hat: that made me keep the hat and ditch the afro, and stay more true to the person I picked. And here is my Polycount thread.
I scribbled this little sketch:
And then I’ve put together this model in under 2 hours:
The model is sitting at 1208 tris at the moment, and the limit is 2000. However, I’ve yet to build a guitar, and also hair and some alpha planes, such as the one for glittering eagle on the belt.
