Hey there all,

I know that I’m late… but hopefully I’ll be able to catch up. Been a sideliner in the challenges… felt like participating.

This is my concept: A chameleon rock star and his band of flies… they perform a track to a crowd of fly and chameleon fans. I should think that should be highly strange behaviour.

Here's the first shot at texturing the character,
Finished modelling then set up the UVs, had a bit of free time at work today so i managed to upload something... Let me know guys... really need your input. Not sure about the finality of the texture though... still needs more work. after this i'll upload more concepts for the rest of the project.

hey there.. hmmm... no comments....

It feels like i'm walking in the dark here, if anyone can please comment so at least i know i'm moving in the right direction?

anyway, got round to skinning and lighting today... felt very impatient so i wanted to see renders chop chop.

I will still revisit the textures though. I should be modeeling the extras for the peice after the 16th next week when i hope to get some free time.

any Comments and Crits are welcome!

there is life out there!
things look pretty good.
personally i'd like to see a little more detail in the hands, feet and head - just to lift it a bit.

what are you planning for this fella to do?

hey there.... good to hear from people here. I was begining to thinkl that maybe the regulars are the only ones who get to get replies.

Will look into the details thing though i want to keep it very stylzed.

I intend him to be holding a guitar and going crazy on a stage with flashing lights and flies for his backup singers! He'll be singing a crazy rock song (a friend of mine allowed me the use of one of his tunes) and i intend to have fans near the stage with a fly with a shirt written "eat me".

Hope i'll have time toi do all this... i have a heavy work schedule.

Hey thedoc

I would go with more detail on the legs. I love the concept sketches... there's something lost in the translation to the model though... maybe its the posing of the character.

The concept idea sounds great. Look forward to the fly flies

Hi thedoc!

I'm wondering about your bump map, is it too heavy? And the area in the mouth should be darker?

Anyway, in order to sharm the croud, there must be something spesial, for it to stand out. Like an abnormality, as a way too big head, mustach, hat, a button that says "I love flies", or maybe just a couple of spots.
And if he's a really dedicated guitar player, maybe he closes his eyes, and lift a foot up in the air, like he's really digging it?

I'm looking forward to see the complete scene!

hey there,

Well i'm not entirely through with the textures... still need to skin prperly and there's the rig finalisation for stuff like te eyes.

I am hopefully going to give a few hours over the weekend for the extra characters... i'm thinking of creating a generic character and reusing it for the flies.

I had intended on putting a beard on this chraracter torwards the end... maybe piercings and a tatoo... Maybe i should post a render without bump and see which one you guys like?
