A larger overall shot. I'll show the boot in another image. I'm essentially done with the undergarments...just adding accessories and details. I also need to do a pass and close up all the open holes where the non-manifold geometry shows through (e.g. neck).
Here's a rear view
This is the flashlight that goes on the soldier's left waist armor webbing. It's called a Tomahawk flashlight. I definitely geeked out on the production of this...there's 6,875 polys just in these two pieces..and that's before the 3 iterations of smooth goes on for the render. So, each polygon gets quadded and then quadded two more times...that's 440,000 polygons just in the flashlight at render time! I'm going to have to start hiding things to keep it from crashing.

Week 0: June 8-12.
I had an email exchance with Ann and sent her the .obj of the Soldier. The summer term starts in one week. I don't have anything scheduled this week (read as: still unemployed) so if she comes back at me with some suggestions, I'll get into it ASAP.
Issues: I think those forearms look a bit too long
Next Week: Create a to-do list for this soldier based on Ann's feedback. Either start all over again with new method or proceed with this NURMS-to-zbrush technique.
