my concept sketch. Based on a hobit and vast backdrop using volume lighting. Might add abit more to it. Maybe another character.
In brief he's a hobit scientist in search of new life and enters the underworld to reveal its secrets. Armed with a magnifying glass, light and various tools he will be ready to explore the underworld.

Very nice, you have made a lot of progress :)
I love the creepy atmosphere of your mine scene - The lighting should look very nice.

Your Hobit has a strange head, which expression want you give to him ?

I think you need to change the expression on the creature's face so you can tell what he is thinking/feeling and remember when you make the character come towards the camera, it gvies the viewer the thought of coming , not going towards something, it can be done, but it is a little harder to represent this in a still life.

I wanted him to be slightly more ugly. And the expression will probably change. I,ll play around with the expression when ive got my final composition totally worked out.

And the head will change im not totally happy with it myself. My initial thoughts for his expression were surprzize, but this might change.

I agree with the expression i havent done much work with the head at all so im going to look at this.

I like your sketch!!
That's cool.
I guess your hobit's toes are kind of weird.
But i like your model!

Hey Matthew, really like the modeling of your miner...just thinking you may want to use a specular map to varry reflections on him. His clothing in particular is probably more reflective than cloth should be...? Looking forward to seeing the textures on your second characeter, good luck!

some alterations spent about two weeks on this and that was my deadline. So I think I probably wont bother entering the final image just run out of time.

It is sad to hear you ran out of time. But at least you got some really nice models and a set out of your labours. Good work. Cheers.
