Great concept you have there. This one seems promising.

A lot of people will want him to look younger, because they want him to look like a badass gangsta.

 

But in my opinion, i would definitely like to see him in his older days.

How he matured after all the things he's been through. More wise on making decision.

 

Give him some more wrinkle around his face, and give him a proper gentlemen apparel, and you got yourself a brand new CJ.

Now, he isn't just a lowlife gangsta. He is one step ahead on becoming the most feared criminal in San Andreas.

 

Or make him dressed just like a normal civilian, to give the idea that he has retired from his criminal past.

Carl Johnson was born on 4th July 1968 and GTA V is in 2013, that mean CJ is 45 years old in GTA V. He should looks older.

I would rather have an older, business-man-like CJ living in HD Los Santos than a twenty year-old buster. It'd also fit the story more if you replaced Franklin with him. You should definitely make him some suits similar to Franklin's and Micheal's.

Thanks guys, I've started to get his likeness down pretty quickly. I definitely want to go for the 40+ CJ. This doesn't mean he's gonna be overly wrinkly etc, but it will be apparent that he's seen some sh*t. I'm thinking about making multiple clothing assets. I work very quickly so stay tuned.

You're quick... old CJ would be best for the era. You should definitely put some few scars and other details like in your last model and make him wear formal suit and an aviator glass and a body(belly) like michael with muscles.

The side view of the model looks great...The front view, for me, can't really see CJ  in it, just my opinion though.

 

In reality, some people's face deform a bit when they get old, unrecognizable in some part.

 

Edit:

Don't mind anything I say about the model, as I'm not good with constructive criticism.

Hey, don't worry, your opinions are what will make this project better. The reason you won't be able to see CJ's resemblence much from the front may be the lack of eyebrows and hairline. The diffuse texture will add the most to the likeness.

His face is definitely the closest proportions I can keep whilst giving him a HD makeover. If I made him exactly like the era III model he'd look deformed :)

Everything looks solid, still need a lot more detail though.
But don't really like his lips, it looks weird. Hope you'll fix that.

 

And can't wait for you to give him a basic diffuse texture first, so we all could exactly know what went wrong with your model.

He's no where near close for a diffuse yet. I know his mouth and stuff in them pics is off but they are already outdated because I've changed them. Don't forget I only started him today :)

Very impressive, i like the whole idea and i'm happy you created a topic for this.I personally like the old Cj idea mainly because i was hoping to see him in gta v or maybe even do missions for him but when it was released of course he wasn't. So keep up the good work. Of topic, I added you on FB hope you don't mind....

Your paintover looks awesome. Certainly got CJ vibe on his face.

Here i made a little tweak over your CJ

Subtle changes on his eyes, jaw, nose, lips and defining his wrinkles a little bit more, in which i think resembles CJ a lot more close.
Just my thought. It's all up to you.

Thanks for the post.
I feel the wrinkles on your paint over are too strong for a 45 year old black male. I think I need to find a mid point between mine and your edit. That been said I do like the subtle changes to the eyes and jaw. The problem with CJ is that he has the smallest eyes known to man!

Thanks for your suggestions :)

I think his jaw should be thinner.

I came back today with a fresh perspective and saw a lot that could be changed. He's looking even more like CJ today.

A quality job you got for a short amount of time...

What level of polygon is that? Assuming you're using mudbox or other sculpting program.

Thank you,

I put a pic up for the base topology which is 5350 polys. I'm using Zbrush at the moment, so the amount of polys is irrelevant because it's just going to be a normal map bake.

I forgot it was intended for game...I never thought  about the baking part.

Once you complete CJ you should consider doing some of the other protagonists. I would love to play as an older Tommy instead of Michael or an older Claude instead of Trevor. Just a suggestion.

How old would Tommy be In GTA V? Surely in his late 60's or something. GTA OAP haha. Claude would be cool.

Alright, maybe not Tommy, but possibly Toni.

For a 45 year old black man, he looks his age. Don't change a thing with that.
