The First Face Texture… So Difficult, But So Satisfying!

I’ve done pretty much all the environmental textures for the first section, so I couldn’t delay redoing the face textures any longer. It took over 10 hours start to finish, but I think I learned a lot that will help speed up future face textures. The results aren’t perfect, but I think and hope I’ll continue improving in the future…

Also, one quick note – the final image in the gallery is the in-game model. Slightly lower polygon count than the cut-scene model, but the same texture applies.

    Very nice, looks great. But I do think it would look even better if they are more dirty/dark in the face? What do you think? Keep up the good work!!

    Awesome job

    Fantastic as always… and remember to keep true to the game…
    It looks like the HD eyes didn’t work on the cutscenes (only on the gameplay).

    What do you need to help you along with this project? I can donate more money if it will help.

    I realised you’ve made the neck and arm parts on Leons jacket leather – when they should be fur.

    Amazing job, anyway!

      I have? Could you point that out in one of the pictures?

      • Gabriel says:

        @crisdecuba I think your re-skin of Leon’s jacket looks fine. What he’s wearing is a bomber jacket, so it is suppose to be leather on the torso with the fur in the upper neck and cuff area.

        @Lukas try googling a bomber jacket.

      • Lukas says:

        Looks like that to me, but I could be completely wrong. If I am wrong, I think the fur could be improved though.

        Another liiiiittle thing, you shouldn’t make the cigarette pack into a real brand, but try to recreate the one in the game, in my opinion. 🙂

    I’m not sure who made this re-skin texture of the jacket, but it resembles the original design a bit more. Don’t get me wrong, your re-skin of the jacket is nice too.

    His hair appears too long on the back and his magnificent beard is too white, but other than that, I think it’s really good. It has this right balance between the game’s style and hyper-realism.

    • Cris says:

      Ahh, this feels like so long ago now. I remember making the hair longer in the back to fix a seam issue between the head and the neck. 🙂 Since then we’ve gained the ability to edit the 3D models directly, so it should be able to be improved. Thanks!
