Stu slouching alternate pose

Monday, April 4, 2011
I took some of the feedback and altered Stu's pose slightly. His right hand is now closer to his side and is in a relaxed fist (which I noticed is how I do that when sitting). His legs have changed with the left leg more outstretched and the right at more of angle. Finally I lengthened his neck slightly.

Thanks for all the suggestions and feedback. Let me know how this one works.

PS I changed the color of the couch so I can quickly keep track of which version is which. So you can call this the blue version and the other the red version.

I dig this a LOT more, West. That left arm reads way better to me now. No more confusion about what's supporting the weight now, it's clearly his upper back.

West said...

Thanks, that is what I think too.

Great improvement West! Like Jeff said, you can really feel that the upper back is support the weight. Really liking this one! :)

It's nice seeing your work

Wow! West, this pose is amazing. I really like the revisions you've made to it. It is truly impressive you have the assignment completed so soon. I just finished watching this week's lecture. See you in class tomorrow.

Hey West, nice pose you have. I like it very much...
The only thing I think you should change is.. You should turn on the shadows - because now the head looks floating and a bit broken.

I love this pose, i have an idea to try to put right heel Up by using FootRoll with RightFoot. ;) Now I'm trying to Pose in Maya T_T. :D

I like it! Feels pretty natural to me. I would tend to agree with Tung in that maybe you could play with the feet (if I understood correctly) Maybe one of his ankles is rolled a little to the side or something to show he's been sitting there for a while and has relaxed his feet since he first sat down. Nice work!

Im going to be controversial here West, i hadnt noticed the previous comments about whether the hand/arm was supporting the weight or not but im going to stand by my guns and go with what i feel would look better.

To me it feels like nothing is holding him to the chair i cant feel the weight to me it looks like he would just slip off, i personally preferred it with the arm supporting the character.

Heres a visual on what i mean, the angle of the shoulders bieng the main element to show the weight.

This is completely personal preference and i dont mean to offend or undermine anyone elses comments - Adam

Thanks for the pic - that helps a lot. I am going to step away from looking at my pose today so that I can have a fresh eye tomorrow and I will look for what you are seeing. I appreciate your comments.
