The Thrill Is Back!

I was searching on ebay for photos of classic players and came upon a good Ryne Sandberg. photograph. What's nice is Ryno isn't smiling. But here's what I came up with using the photo. It actually wasn't as great as I thought.

looking good. can we get a side by side? he has a very distinct nose, which was something I was never looking forward to doing if i ever made one of him.

I worked on Ryno in oedit for several hours last night. I think it looks just about done. Here's a latest screenshot. Of the two photographs I used, the one on the right is the primary image used. The one on the left is used to Make the eye areas more clear and the bring out the tones in the cheeks, chin and jaw.

Looking a lot better! I still see something with his nose. If you look at him in other pics, you can kind of see that he has a very broad and flat nose. I think it's the one feature about him that sticks out the most for me.

@homer,

I know what you mean be a certain feature that you always remember. There was this player named Rene Gonzalez who played for several teams and wore #88 a lot. He had this jaw that was really abnormally big. I'll still be haunted by that til the day I die. just kidding. Going to the Bay tonight and hanging out for the weekend. I won't be modding but I did get this Robin Ventura MvP 2003 face together before I left. I'll try to do more with Sandberg's nose when I get back, too.

I'm very jealous. Pick up a giant sandwich from Little Luca's for me.

I had to work yesterday but got around to doing the 2003 MVP Baseball version of Edgar Martinez. It was rather difficult trying to replicate it. And I did some adjusting to Ryne Sandberg.

edit 1: I just completed a version of Jay Buhner.

edit 3: Greg Vaughn and Tony Batista from MVP Baseball '03 are now completed too.

Here's a couple guys I've been working on lately.

@Homer, I know you made an Eric Davis. I actually used your photo you used at first and tried to do my own oedit from scratch (existing player without oedit changes). But I just wanted Eric Davis to have a mustache which he doesn't have in that photo. It's like Greg Vaughn not wanting to shave his mustache when he played for the Reds. He was afraid of how his kids would react never seeing Dad without the 'stache. Same thing, Davis looks weird to me without his 'stache. Your oedit work is awesome though on Davis and the texture is better in my opinion. I just think the mustache makes a huge difference.

Also, here's a my version of Bob Boone so far:
