hey boys and girls.

Here's a little pic to mull over. Hmmm lets see... modeled in maya, textured in DeepPaint, color corrected/leveled/bg'd in photoslop. I'll post a wireframe if I get around to it. Criticism welcome, I already see some stuff wrong, but oh well - I'm on to something new. Too many images fighting to get out, and not enough time to model the stuff I say. =)

cheers,

-daryl

How about some different angles. I love the painterly quality, though I would definitely like to see this fellow in action..... or at least in pose.
Ciao!

it started out as a sketch in a profile pose, so thats how I wanted to '3d' it. It pretty much turned out how I envisioned. I'll try and post the original sketch tommorrow. Thanks for the suggestion though!

one of your best daryl looks very Brom ;) the textures are very well done, any tips on how you mapped them? I see no evident strecthing at all, the leather is also nicely implemented..

lovely work, nicely done

hey dragon,

the textures do actually stretch a tiny bit in places, but the camera is far enough back you dont really notice. Basically I reduce/eliminate texture stretching through painstaking UV mapping - it takes the lions share of my time. Usually I break up the model into shading groups that make sense, then do multiple planar projections on those facesm, throw a test image on, then stitch the UVs together, then manually tweak the UVs until the distortion is gone. This combined with DP projection mapping, and you can get some pretty good teextures.

Another post asked abouth the painterly quality - It mostly comes from the painted PS backgrounds, and I also mess with Color Balance and levels a lot to get it looking right. Also, I'll do multiple render passes using different lighting rigs, and composite them for a nice effect in PS. A typical scene will be rendered with 2 different regualt lighting setups, plus a GI setup.

cheers,
-daryl

hey matt,

hmmm, I dunno about the title. It just popped in my head, and I had put the big 7 on the wal to fill some space. I guess this guy is just really lucky at killing people. =)

Quite disturbing...... yet very cool!!
impressive stuff.
Maybe you should smear the handprints on the wall to give it that nice traditional "you can't escape my new shiny blade" look :D
