Goon #1: Sam

This is the character who threatens Bir at the climax of the film.
(His name is Sam because Brittany thinks he looks like Sam Waterston)

Here's how I got there:

Step 1: Start with Maqbool

Step 2: Get rid of all the hair and modify the base model so the face starts to look different

Step 3: Start adding back hair, eyes, etc., and try to tweak each component as it's added

Step 4: More tweaks after a review with colleagues - add a widow's peak, get rid of the beard, and a nose job. (He resembles my dad slightly, which is not surprising since I used a picture of my father as a loose reference.)

Final: More tweaks, a change of clothes and some stubble.

The base mesh looks like this:

Final Final: Oops. I got some more feedback saying that he was too handsome. So this is the new and more evil Sam after I made his features more angular.

Prayer reference

Some references for Scene 3, when Maqbool prays on the train.

This the first pass on the beginning of the riot. There will be more characters added, but I'm trying to get the blocking/edit down.
