Twinsen Twinsen's Structure

I have come to realize that Twinsen has such a simple structure, yet when I come to draw him on paper or model him on a 3D program, it never looks exactly like his "complex" structure. I have a post from either a year or two ago, and it features one of my older Twinsen models. Some liked the color of his robe, and others said that he had the structure of an urban thug.

Has anyone else thought of or even considered this same idea? I think a problem of mine is trying to get down the small features on his face. You have got to admit, his lip radius or diameter is so small, that Adeline probably didn't even need to model the lips that high polygon for the cut scenes of either LBA 1 or 2. Heck, even in the close ups you can never see all of the polygons on Twinsen's lips. Either way, I guess it doesn't matter.

We all appreciate the game for what it is, and there are all kinds of limitations. I guess they just had to make the best out of what they had.

Use this shape as a reference when modelling his head.
(kinda big image)
Spoiler:


No wonder the specie is called quetsch, what is on the picture has the same name

Well, I wanted to make my own 3d model of Twinsen some time ago and I stumbled upon these problems too. His shape and structure are pretty abstract.

I have the feeling that the 3d model of the cgi cutscenes of Twinsen (in LBA 2 for example) sometimes change from time to time.

My guess is that the people who made the animated cutscenes didn't completely know what is correct structure was. So you don't have to worry too much on the correct shape I think

I certainly had trouble the times I tried to model him. Just cant get the feel right.
Pitty as I want to 3D Print him sometime.

If I ever get my hands on a 3D Printer, the first thing I'll do is to print a dinofly for myself
