WW2 German Infantry
show user profile  Niklas Elling
Hi there. I'm making a ww2 era german soldier for portfolio purposes.

I've tried to stay close to realism on this one so I've used loads of references and used photos as a base to many of the textures.

Head, cap, jacket, hands, trousers, boots and ammobas(including straps) are separate models with separate textures so I could possibly make a few more of these and then generate hundreds of unique combinations.

I'm still working on the textures and are going to start building a rig today. I'll also model a weapon and some more accessories.

Any feedback which could help me improve this character is very welcome.

Can't find anything wrong with it.

Top notch in my book!

Very Impressive mate, his middle finger seems bent to the side to me, but maybe its the camera angle. Very very nice nonetheless.

What is the tri count?

very groovy
i think the ear might be a touch too far back, the cheek a tiny bit too forward (where it meets the nostrils in the profile shot) and the hat seems to be engulfing the head somewhat
the hands could use a little love as mentioned
cool work though- the friendly face of the third reich
