Nice character you got there. I was going to say that eyes miss that little sharp highlight (you know, pixar-style), but since he's lit from behind.... no way to get that highlight without some 'faking' :)

I particularly enjoy the way that you've handled the character's eyes.

The legs I feel are so so, not bad, but not striking.

The eyes will help you to convey the bulk of your character's feeling and emotion, should you decide to animate it.

Yea indeed the eyes come handy with facial expressions. Eyes, mouth and eyebrows define how someone looks. Too bad you character doesn't really have the latter. Maybe you can do without because it has a large mouth/eyes but if not you might use the upper eyelid for that.

Just don't underestimate them, that's all.


[edit] you might consider taking a look at scrat from ice age. He has the same problem and his emotions are VERY good expressed

yes.. i will animate this mouse as soon is possible.

Make the eyes look like real, using some kinda transparent sphere around them. Read some tuts on how to make it.
Fix the tail.
ANd where are his arms?
I like that mouse a lot. As a character, i think hes great. He deserves to have some better eyes and tail.
The legs are fine i guess, although, add a little fur to them.(just a bit).

I honestly hope, you´ll do some animations with this little fella. Looks absolutely great!

The tail still needs a little work and, as already pointed out, the eyes could need a highlight, but it also works as it is.

Awesome job!

squeezestudio
11-23-2003, 01:14 PM
Thank you so much guys ! I appreciate your Feedback on my mouse and i'm glad you like it !

Thomas Mahler and TheShaddix :

I''l update soon with and highlight on the eyes for add more life on this character !
For the tail... i dont want to change anything... i like the ''candy '' style of the tail and i dont want to loose this... But i think i will add a little bump for add more detail on the tail... I need to put a little work on it !

Thanks for all !

Also , here a viewport screen shoot ( wire frame of this little mouse ) and a side view...

your character is very nice I'd say just one thing about the fur : it looks a bit like cotton, did u mean it ? anyway it's a great work, clean and simple.
must be funny when animated

I like the fur, its got a lovely wolly feel to it. He's got similar style eyes to that thing out of ice age, so lots of eye expressions. I'm about to start a cartoon style character and looking for some ideas, of which your character style has been noted ;).

Nifty.

For the fur impression (cotton look).. this is what i was try to make ... I would like to have a puffy look .. all the hair in the air pointed in different direction ....


Thanks for comment ! I appreciate a lot your critics ... :buttrock:

If you ment to do that the look is okay!

This is so unbelievably CUTE. That twitchy eye reminds me a lot of Scrat from Ice Age, although this little guy has a totally unique character anyway.

Really great work, I don't have any crits for him because I think he works really well as he is. I'm plugging this on the front page so everyone can get a good dose of cuteness for the day :D

The Time Serpent
11-25-2003, 02:50 AM
niiiiiiice.........
really cute!
but somethin with the legs and the ears bugs me:hmm:
maybe spreading the ears a bit will help?
and about the legs you prolly should keep them as they are or try to give him more "realistic legs" (i mean with the heel workin as another knee)

Arnold looks great. Well done with the fur, it's a cool style. I love the bottom eyelid, it gives the all important 'shifty' look to him.

Crits, i might add translucency on the ears. And the legs seem off, I might add ankles, or experiment with a bump map.

Peace.

mmm, nice work cg-wise. but to be honest it's a bit too much like Scratch fron "Ice Age" design-wise. maybe it's fan art?

BnE
11-25-2003, 08:29 AM
no way doesn't look like scratch at all! scratch is way different!(ok, he's got a bit the same eyes...)
this is soooooo cute! i just love it. this is the best character i've seen for a long time... look at the way he poses, it's really expressive i think. this piece touches me a lot!

keep working like that patrick!

c'est superbe! il est trop mignon!

But the fur scares me alot... it would render 5 months on my pc, nah only joking, it would actualy render in about a week

b-lame
11-25-2003, 11:32 AM
thats a very cute mouse!
it's so expressive, it immediately catched my attention on front page! i too think it is in the eyes, mainly.

you might want to spend some more time on the legs and the tail, they don't quite fit the rest of the character. i think they could use a different material/texture, something more "ruff and dirty" if you know what i mean. that might make a nice contrast if compared to the fluffly baby-bird-like fur.

anyhow: groovy character! i want it animated.

Hey, may I adopt your Mouse? :p
It is really a wonderful work my friend.

But if you're going to animate that little guy, shag fur might be cause problems. I don't know. Keep in mind. :)

Hello Patrick,
Your character is terrific. very nice job.
I have two comments though that may be you should take into account:
1- Give more translucency to the ear or if it has already give more.
May be a couple of tiny blood vessles running along the ear surface will do great also.

2-The tip of the tail should be really really pin shape, scale it almost to zero, it can help the agility of the character.
Even if your mouse is clumsy,fat and lazy his/her tail gets fatter but not at the tip.

Other than that GRRRRREEEEAAAT JOB
GOOD LUCK:thumbsup:

Nice character!!

I can see why people compare your Arnold to Scrat from "Ice Age". So what!! (I like your fur solution better)

Everything I would have to say about the character so far has already been addressed, so here are some things to keep in mind for the animation:

• Keep your poses easy to read.

• Snappy timing between poses helps give the feeling of smallness and speed. One or two frames is sometimes all you need.

• Some overlapping animation in the nose/ears/tail will add much to the animation as well.

I've seen your Ostrich animation before, so you already have a handle on how to achieve nice animation, but I thought I'd add my 2˘ anyway.

I don't know what you have planned for this guy, but seeing him try to get cheese out of a trap without getting killed might be funny.

Good stuff!!

squeezestudio
11-26-2003, 01:06 AM
Thanks Floyd for your suggestions .... you remind me the essential base of animation. I'm agree at 120 % with you!

For the futur animation with him , I dont want to reproduce a ''scratt'' animation , i just want to make one animation with many good expression , great timming , great ACTING ............... JUST A GOOD ANIMATION SEQUENCE !!!!!

Thanks a lot for all guys for your comment about Arnold !
