Again starting with a male base mesh I use, Once again I gathered some reference on actors I thought would work, firstly I was thinking Sam Elliot and then I moved towards a shot of Tom Selleck as I like his eyes, before moving to a few select shots of Gary Oldman. This was just for ref, not for a likeness. Revolver Ocelot has changed alot in the series and so I wanted to take him back to his MGS1 days and explore the lone gun slinger aspect. Hes gonna be pretty old and super weathered in the end.
Im also trying out a new IMM brush I made for quickly laying out hair, its a really simple 3 staged brush. At the start is the root which actually goes into the mesh and then the middle is a thin but wide tube before hitting the end where it peaks. The great thing with this is the control you get, I can play with the curve, size it up and even play with the depth on the fly. I used it on the moustache first off which gave the nice break in the centre. I then started using it on the head for his hair. You do have to copy the head and delete all subdivisions before applying it but you can just split the head off at the end and delete the duplicate. The good thing with this workflow is it adds alot of volume to the hair and you dont have to fight bad topology and by using the topology masking option in the brush menu you can easily single out strands and play with it that way. Once its there you can pull it around and sculpt on top to get the forms looking nice. When Im happy I'll zremesh it all and sculpt into it properly.
Going back to the face I really wanted to play with the laughing lines and get that nice cut in the cheek bones. I also pulled out the top part of the neck to give him old man neck and smoothed the transition on the jawline. I thought it important to push a clint eastwood style stare aswell haha, hes also got the flickey out eyebrows that ocelot sports. Ive also tried to stay away from the typical over masculated chiseled features as he was never a physically enpowered character.
In the end he looks like jake the snake haha, but hes getting there
next video, more detailing and hopefully some clothing action :)
