I will now show you the over-time creation of my character. In the near future, I will eventually have tutorials explaining how to low-poly model each part of the body on my web-site since there is too much information for one tutorial.
Notice where the loops are placed in the characters chest, face, and shoulders. The key is maintaining a nice mesh flow in parts that will be moving a lot when the character is moving around.
Modelling Overview - Modeling Pipeline :
More steps of my work as I continue modeling my character.
Once again, notice the edges I put in where I want the fingers to be able to bend. Also, I only used 3 fingers to keep the look and feel of an imaginary character. A lot of cartoons only use 3 fingers and a thumb.
Now we have finished the modelling it's now time to tackle the unwrapping and texturing stage of the character.
