You're doing well.  You can't get good without trying - and we all have to have the courage to suck until we're good.  You have talent.  Keep at it.

I'm interpreting that I have potential, but I suck right now.   :-\
Should be expected for my first time.

You don't suck.  You just have room to grow as an artist, and are growing.

I still have room for growth, and am growing.  Lot of that going around.

I meant more for the leaderhead alone, not the skill of Art Modding in general.
A good way to get better would be to hold a contest to see who can make the best ____ out of ___'s face - Then we could compare eachother's.
Before I retire for today, I decided I would treat you with this.

As some practice, I decided to remove Ivana's implants.
Well, I should work on the forehead a little more, might not be the best color for the lighting.

She's squished.  I like her face, especially, of the set -the light eyes give her a perfect space/alien touch- but she's narrow...

You mean for the portait box?
Yeah. I found an actual drawing/painting of her, but that is narrow as well.

I think she'd be better widened maybe 10%.  She looks squished.

The picture above is the one from the game. Can't do anything about it.
Looking at the set though, she does look too skinny.
You like this better? I can get rid of the repeating background easily enough.

You might enjoy this:

Dostya leaderhead moving/talking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d6czSnJMJI

Her personality fits the Red Unit - That faction is basically a spoof of the Cybran from SupCom.
Although the real leader is Brackman. He did get a spot as a scientist in the text file though.

Leaderhead Contest
« Reply #491 on: November 16, 2014, 11:56:29 PM »
Flux tells me he's really serious about let's have a making a leaderhead contest - so what the heck.  I happen to have saved the following shot yesterday from an Ebola news story:



That there's Ebola survivor Ashoka Mukpo - the strange name on a white American guy is because he was raised by a guru and is supposed to be the reincarnation of an important Tibetan lama.  He seems pretty normal, considering.

Flux, pictures of the top of his head are all over Google Images - that's part of the contest if you don't want to draw something in yourself, because skipping all the work we can through googling is often part of what we do.  Any rules to suggest, Flux?  I'd say making the final result substantially -if not excusively- based on this shot and not a better one of Mr. Mukpo would be good, though have a party on the background and anything you can alter yourself, and adding robot crap to his face is fine.

Protip: there's an easy way to get6 him looking at the camera, and you should.

Leaderhead contest!
Okay. Well, I think the point of this was for comparisons of it. So maybe he should have be a certain theme? Cyborg seems to be a common and fun-to-do one. I suggest that.
I'd say it should be based off this shot, though you can the original "organic parts" it in subtle ways. (for example, re-doing the eyes to look at the camera). Of course other backgrounds should be allowed.
So basically as long as it's clearly the same guy cyborgic you should be golden.
That's my suggestions.

Leaderhead Contest
« Reply #493 on: November 17, 2014, 01:50:11 AM »
Well, I'm having a lazy day to try to get some stress to go away, so I'll give you a head start of however much you want - you can decide whether you want to go first, last or simultaneous submission.  I won't start working before tomorrow afternoon.

I dunno if I'll want to borg him, but I'll offer the advantage of I'll do something with basically this shot, and you can go find something better of him to work with if you want.  -I think we can agree that he has to be futured somehow.  Really, the whole point is practice at making a good leaderhead from a photo, so if a good leaderhead results, that should qualify.

Anyone else want to play?  More people trying ought to prove more fun.  Try to subject your posts "Leaderhead Contest".

Almost all of the pictures on google images of him are super-crappy quality. You found one of the best ones out there I think. Simultaneous submission should be fine as long as it gets done quick enough. Let's just message eachother when we're both done and then post at the same time. If anyone else joins, it will be the same way. I might start working on him today, but there really shouldn't be a time limit as long as nobody forsakes us like Green1.  :P
