The rookies back! And like always...I'm behind again...and theres no promise that I'll get my video finished in time. But..I'm here to learn so here's my first thumbnail sketch. This'll be a story of a secret agent dwarf... dressed as a baby carrying out a sneak attack!

My second sketch with light and shadow placement. Since this will be animated..I will have to carefully set the lighting for a much lower render time.

I was inspired by my newborn son. He was really upset one day...so he had this really mean look on his face, clutching his fists as if he had a pair of Tommy guns! Thinking of a storyline now.

Ok..its time to start modeling. Here's the bed for Baby Face. He will have toys scattered all around him.

Alright....Baby Face needs a set of mini Uzi'z to get things sparking. To make this quick..I'm gonna use spline modeling, box in the basic shape and extrude details as I go. I finished these for the image portion of the contest...so I will just add textures.

Finished modeling the bottle and pacifier. Thinking of the other characters that I'm going to add later.

The last of the toys for this scene. Next will be the Baby face model... hopefully I can have him finished by the end of the day.

Some beginning work I did on the body and face! I Prepared the rough shapes...converted the low poly to high poly..and defined the final look. Almost finished with the rigging. I'll post detailed versions later.

Wish I started a bit earlier! Wouldnt mind a deadline extension for this competition...an extra month could help us all! :) Anyway...heres a few AO shots of Baby Face. I'm working on a second version of him, I'm gonna add clothing and maybe a suit and tie. I should be done rigging in a couple of hours. I have two other characters in the works, hopefully I can have them rigged by the end of the day.

Ambient Occlusion test 3. I've been modeling and rigging all day now. Learning as I go...making rookie mistakes that is costing me time that I really dont have.

Thanks Pierzak! Yeah....I really doubt if I can finish everything in 23 days? I dont know how the story will unfold though. I sketched out a few ideas..but they'll never get completed in 23 days. So I might have to scrap some scenes..and shorten it up a bit.
