Something i made in some days just for fun, i'm quite busy with my uni studies at the moment so i didn't have the possibility to make something requiring too much time. I decided to model Winnie because i was browsing google for some pics and i found this site: http://www.all-the-inter.net/winnie.htm which took me back to when i was a child. The task hasn't been the easiest ever, that toy has more edgeloops than a human :D I tried to use the 3 basic colours as much as i could, trying to get a sort of an X composition with Winnie in the middle: wood on top right and bottom left, bright white on top left and bottom right. I hope you like it :)

modeling, lighting and rendering in CINEMA4D 8.5 as usual
texturing in CINEMA4D (BODYPAINT3D) and Photoshop for the (hand made) wallpaper.

Excellent, you really caught the mood of the original character, and the rendering is stunning...

Five stars for me (for what they count...) ..

Very nice work. I especially like the lighting. It has a very soft feeling that fits Pooh Bear well.

Only that pose bothers me a bit as well, with him standing to the wall. It's kinda like he is being robbed :D

ThirdEye

The T-pose was for an "ideal hug" and to keep the composition balanced.

Kay: no SSS, just GI with the St.Peters Probe and a blue area light.

What caught my eye were the strings on the plane - wonderful idea to do it that way - I really like those details! :thumbsup:

Nice render! I like the softness, but the only thing that stands out is the tip of that red crayon...its sharper than all the rest. Hardly noticable, but i had to crit something.:D

I love the picture. It's really good. Seems a little shiny to pass for photo-real, but it's certainly close though. Good Job overall. :thumbsup:

Beautiful ThirdEye! I can never get AR HDRI renders to work for me..I always get artifacts in my shadows. One thing that is bugging me. Unless that wooden plane has a heavy engine in it...lol, shouldn't the tail be pointing down...due to the weight distribution? It just seems off. Ilove it though..Really kickin.

I too would love a wallpaper.

cheers:beer:

It'd be true if the right cord wasn't put around the wing ;)

Try these settings for GI tho:

accuracy between 50% and 95%, depending on the accuracy you need
stochastic samples 100-150
min res 3
max res 20

Great Pooh image! It makes me sad actually. I used to have a stuffed Pooh bear that played the old song when hugged (I had it for as long as I can remember). But my sister broke it one day a year or so ago :cry:. Ahhh... Pooh nostalgia...

I read elsewhere here on CGTalk that people usually want to be positively criticised when they post their images.

Anyway, I could not find any flaws in your image. Either that or my eyes are not trained to be ferocious to spot flaws. Overall, I admire your modeling skills and composition of the Pooh bear. Not to mention, your lighting is superb as if taken in the morning in a well-lit room.

People have said here that your image has too much glow, I think that their monitors may or may not be properly calibrated.

Bravo for your modeling skills and my two thumbs way up! I hope to see more of your work since I know how it is to balance between Uni and your secondary interests.

i`m always amazed the way some people can focus on pointless details, by the way yes, that`s a quite common italian lightswitch.

most times i would sit by and quitely show my praise by gauking from the shadows but something about the way you did that transparent honey blows my mind... or maybe i'm just hungry. either way i gotta admit if i was serving some decerations for my kid i'd vote your super shined out Pooh no doubt:thumbsup:

i would say i'm curious, but i don't remember Pooh being sheriff... anywho, wonderful design & textures:bowdown:

I like it! How did you get that subtle glow? Was that with the glow filter in C4D? Critique: His arms are posed a little plainly.

I like the rendering. One thing you may want to be aware of compositionally is that when you have objects very close to the edges, it tends to create tension. His paws are very close to the edge as well as the top of the light switch. I think if you backed the camera away a bit, it would make him seem more cuddly. Again, very awesome render with the lighting and all.
