Mermaid Character

(Zaxel) #1

I am working on a submarine themed game with some friends and thought a mermaid would make a great side project. Since I cant draw I started with the concept/ base model straight in 3D. My goal is a slightly stylized look but with correct anatomy, so I am always happy about critiques. I have no particular design in mind, just want to see where this is going.

This is my first post here so I hope the formatting is fine. If there is a preview button, i havent found it yet

Concept for clothes which will probably change in the future

I already started refining the head

Work on the torso. Currently aiming for a slim and athletic body type.

Thank you guys!
Though I probably postpone the horror path for a later version haha :smile: @shaderbytes

Started work on the fishtail. Due to the elongated torso and the low entry at the transition I decided to raise the crotch area a bit

Also I experimented with darker color and contrast compared to the concept

In addition I made small revisions to the the head due to some lines I disliked in front view. Mainly worked on the cheeks to change the volume

this is all very hi-poly stuff, it looks great but im mostly looking forward to the game ready version , with details and textures baked down so i can view it it in 3d :wink:

chat soon

Update on the torso. Tried to improve on the things advised to me, mostly ribcage shape and position.

For clothing I decided to change the concept somewhat.The golden accessoirs were quite cool so I put more focus on that now. The belt thingy now sits around the fishtail rather than the belly and is quite large
