Hi gang! Finally that challenge has start! My First ever challenge in 3D.

I love pixar movies like you. I choose Russell character for many reasons:





Funny character in spirit
Lot of different items to model
Lot of different shaders and fabrics on it
I hope to do my best with Russell. Keep his spirit! I will start today as my offday. I had take one week (the HMC 30 extension) to gather all the items references.

I will use Softimage, Zbrush and Photoshop

Very clean and fast work here so far!:thumbsup:
Great character choice too!

What are you rendering this with? MR? If yes, you might want to consider giving 3Delight a shot instead. It's free and may give you a the right Renderman-ish feel for this challenge. ;)

Cheers!

Scote
06-14-2011, 11:54 AM
Ya mentalray! but ya I would try your renderer because Softimage don't work with renderman and because it's a Pixar Tribute.. Why not use there renderer!

TheRazorsEdge
06-14-2011, 12:01 PM
To clear things up for you, since I am getting the feeling you did not fully understand my suggestion. 3Delight is a Renderman-compliant renderer, creating a similar look as Pixar's very on Renderman, which indeed is not available for Softimage. But... luckily 3Delight is filling that gap and available for free download as a 2-thread version from dna-research here (http://www.3delight.com/en/index.php?page=3DFS_download). I havent tried it in Softimage 2012 yet, but was told by support that the 2011.5 plugin works fine for 2012.

Cheers!

Oh ok, I tought you talking about a standalone software

Scote
06-14-2011, 05:16 PM
I begin to think I'm going too deep in modeling for a pixar stylized look. So I will slow down. The items are so far of the camera (but i love details)

Thanks everyone. This week (dayoff start wednesday) I will finish the main gears (swiss army knife, water bottle and cords) and finally start Russell body so I can resize the gears from his final proportion.

I think I will do the pose like this one:
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3108/5847506154_0e81bca252.jpg


Well I gotta to help cross something!

I like the pose on that moment. If I got time in that two month (surely) i will try to reproduce a part of Mr.Frederickson entrance for a baseon Russell model.

Maybe you have better suggestion for me for pose?

Thanks man. I will try tonight to end the main accessories. I'm a bit off of the others guys.. I start by accessories.. but my idea is to keep the main mesh of the end.. I live for the credo:

"Start with the boring things and finish with fun parts"

Thanks a lot guys!

I will restart Russell this Tuesday

I work 4 days a week, never do 3D a day of work (because i'm all day in front of a screen). So that's why you never see a WIP between Saturday and Monday.

I think the next move will be the body and the backpack in low res.

lapachi
06-27-2011, 01:21 PM
Hey there Sam,

My advice, do a quick low rez mesh of Russell's body, head, hands and legs, all togather. Let it be very low one, just to see the overall shape and proportions of character, try to make it a close as possible to the real Russ, and than move on to detailing it.

This would be the best way IMHO in this case.

Cheers bro, You can do it ;)

Scote
06-28-2011, 12:01 PM
Ya i was thinking of that.. one mesh for all the parts (head, shirt, shorts, legs, hands and shoes) and one mesh for the backpack, one for the kesthief

Scote
06-29-2011, 02:54 PM

Even if you don't like the result, better to have a starting point that you can improve on.

Continuously inspiring work here! :thumbsup:

ZBrush takes a little practice, but once you get your head around it, it's really no big deal. So don't worry and just start playing around with it. It's all you really need to do to get to know it better and the sooner you start the faster you'll find it like second nature. :)

Thanks man! very appreciate the comment. I hope to have some votes, so I can be enough proud of my first zbrush mesh.

Really funny to start a challenge and hoping be class in the good ones but without the zbrush abilities for a hardcore challenge.

2 weeks before school, so 2 weeks to go for me. Hope to add the most of the details this week and textures/shades the mesh the last week.

I wonder if my trophy base is the best color? what do you think? less brown and more red?

Very Nice Scote.

Like the overall shape of the character with all the details of it. I see you've put a lot of attention to the proportions of Russ, and it looks pretty sweet !

Thanks lapachi!

I want to specialise in character modeling when I finish school, so need focus on proportion!

Oh this is not the final model! i just add everything I done for now and render each time I define something.. so of course I will add some color.. the accesories will look less evident with russell polypaint and pose.

Scote this looks really good dude .The hair and missing buttons on the pelt are the only things i can see .What else can i say but I think I didnt win .Nice man .

Scote
08-11-2011, 03:14 AM
Thanks man, I'm a perfectionnist, so i don't like it .. by nature ;)

Tomorrow i will try something, stay tune

Phobiss

Oh! he IS looking really good indeed! the hair will add to his resemblance and his main characteristic was (is??) his positivity (sometimes too much !!), so we are used to look at him smiling.
But you have a neutral pose here, so when you give him some expression that should make it IMHO.

You r almost there!

Scote
08-11-2011, 01:21 PM
well I tought to pose him confuse like i said.. but it's a fact that he smile 90% of the time.. the positivism attitude.

Scote
08-11-2011, 01:27 PM
missing buttons on the pelt are the only things i can see

fusedgore

*his face should be a bit more fat:

*and you made him look sad, make him much happier (change the expression on his face, make the shader warmer, if you're planning to model the medals thingies on the front it'll add a lot).

good job so far :bowdown:

You are all right about the sad attitude. Let's make him happy

Scote
08-12-2011, 07:17 PM
Well the more I add texture the more I really don't like him lol

Maybe you should try some diferent lighting on the scene. Also, his skin is so greenish. Maybe you should add some orange tones:

Probably that's the "pixar-feeling" you're missing there. Also, don't forget to work on his cheeks.
The model looks awesome right now, and if you could bring this "pixar-feeling" to him, it would be incredibly awesome ! :)

Keep the good work

Scote

But for the skin.. well i'm colorblend lol i will sample the color of one of the ref. pictures
