I plan on getting more work done on the scene concept this weekend. (oh how work gets in the way) but this guy is going to be heading off on his journey. Named Gimble after what happens to all my bones at least once in my lifetime :).

Started modelling the little guy this weekend in Lightwave. He is coming along nicely. I hope to finish his body this week so that I can start texturing him this weekend.

He is getting there... Slowly but surely...
I hope to have the scene sketches up by Sunday.

Really cool hobbity looking character! There are some poles and tris that you could get rid of at the top head and the forehead.

Thanks Womball,
I aim to clean those bits up tonight with any luck.
Thanks for dropping by. :)

Its getting there slowly but steadily.
I must say that I am keen to see how your entry will turn out. you have some very moody sketches going on.

I like the looks of this guy, you are really capturing the concept sketch of him. Keep it up :)

that's a nice character,

what's the concept?

Womgoose

Love your concept sketch :)
He looks like a right cheeky little fella.
Nice work

guitarGeek & Womgoose: thanks :) I am really getting into this character, I like him alot.

shahabp: my concept... yes I am a tad behind on that front, but i have two ideas that I am toying with at the moment. The first is that he woul dbe situated in front of his dwelling putting together the last of his things before he heads out on his journey...
The other is that he would be loading up his animal (Iwas thinking of using an ant maybe... or lady bug... dunno yet,) and then heading off on his journey... possibly waving goodbye to his family.
I promise I will have the scene sketches up on Wednesday. :deal:

More detail to the vest and clothing, nearly ready for ZBrush.
Tonight I will work on the scene concept sketches as promised yesterday. :)

After a little frustration and grand ideas and bad ideas, I am running with this one. Gimble leaves to go on a long journey, but there is a sense that he may not return to his house..
It may be a tad worn out thematically, but I like the feel of the sketch and the colour, and it should be achievable within the current time frame. :)

Just a very basic surface setup. but he was getting very confusing in all grey. I endeavour to give him a backpack and shillaly on the weekend. After looking at my scene sketch I think that there is a lot more modelling to do. (inc the tree house) I shall soldier on.

More weekend modelling (fitted around house renovation) he is still coming along slowly..
Hopefully I will have some more time this weekend to ramp it up a bit and finish the textures, and work on the house and forest.

I like your character. My only cirt would be about the upper part of the nose that could have a better integration with the whole head.

Bonzodogboy
03-28-2006, 09:22 PM
Thanks Authentic :)
I will have a look at his nose tonight. I have to give him som ehair and get started on the textures as well.

Nice work :)

This is looking really good! I like the basic color layout for him too. Although he is a bit pale for his base. The modeling is top notch too! I can't wait to see it textured!

I thought the same about the skin and he has been made darker.
I also wasnt too happy with the texture of the skin either.
Updates for texture and colour should be ready Monday. ;)

Cute character and I like the details you worked on him ( the buckle, backpack and stuff) although I feel that the material could be more refined. It seems a little dimensionless with no texture, I mean, I feel maybe the lighting might also be enhanced. For all I know you're already working on it, and for basics that's not too bad. Good work so far.

More please?

Hi asbassie,
I agree with you 100%, and I am getting around to it...
Things are very busy at the moment, and I havent been able to play with the little guy for the last couple of days.
I will be finalising the texture and final details hopefully by this Monday.
Until the next post :)

A hair and texturing test.
Still has a way to go, but I am plodding along slowly.

Wonderful work Kieran, he is really looking great now :buttrock:
I love the subtle hair on his arms, it's a great touch.
Keep going dude, I can't wait for more updates.
The little dude rocks! :applause:

Womball
04-12-2006, 01:24 AM
Wow! His eyes have great depth and teh overall texturing is really nice! The hair on his head though is a bit too uniform, could use some color variation. The skin looks just right, especially if it is lit interestingly in a scene. What a sad expression!

Bonzodogboy
04-12-2006, 01:51 AM
Thanks Womball and Womgoose,
The hair is a struggle, but I am trying not to focus too much on it at the moment, as it gets quite distracting, especially just trying to create the coarser hair for the sideburns and finer hair for the hair on his head.
Thanks again for dropping by.
Hopefully I will have him posed or his house built this weekend...

With a heavy heart, and a little regret I am withdrawing from the competition.
Due to my current workload, and a 3 week hiatus I see no real way that I can finish this scene.
Gimble will live on, and I will get him a story and get him moving on to a screen somewhere.
Thanks to all of you who have dropped by and given encouragement and support, and I shall see you all on the next challenge.
Good luck to you all. :)

Womball
05-23-2006, 02:20 AM
Aww! I was wondering what happened to you. Gimble will be missed.
