wow, this is great. I know the concept is not yours, but you did a great job with the modeling, and the textures fit it perfectly. This kinda style is really cool and you pulled it off quite well. Also, great job on your zip image too. I think if he had glowing eyes it would fit better with the rest of him, but that's just a personal preference. Keep up the good work!

AWESOME!! hehe.. kinda reminds me of William Birkin from Resident Evil 2.. perhaps this is what would happen to a rat, if it was injected with the G-Virus.. ooooh.. kickass, dude..

Cool! At first I thought that it was a Photoshop drawing. But you can rig and animate your drawing. I like your style.

Now, do you really think that a rat trap will even be an option?

Michel is a really nice guy and a great artist.

If you get a chance to talk to him at a convention get him to personalize your books...

...in my Frenzied Fauna book he drew me one of my favourite animals...a platypus...

...really nice guy.

I will have to forward this link to him...

Very nice 3D work as well! :thumbsup:

hehehehehe...this is funny.

Only crit is the lips and the face area are too smooth compared to the rest of the body. Some texturing and some bump would be nice on those areas.

Otherwise, its wikid!

heh, nice image :) nice tex on the gums, I think the ears need some more detail though; they seem a bit round and cute looking; which is a difficult contrast with the pointy evil look of the rest of the creature. I'd make them kind of pointing back and ending in a point and narrow and weithered and stuff. But hey thats just me.

to my knowledge, when you are saying you did the model work, isnt it spelt 'modelled' instead of 'modeled'? I'm not too sure but to me, modelled looks right.

Hey, Shiva3D. you did nice job here. I love this character!
what i feel is the fur needs more work, and some area could be better on texture, like ears, lips and skin.
anyway, nice work. Keep post up more.
:D
btw i like your website, you did so lots of interesting design. may i select one for my next short film. :beer:

Great Image. I am a fan of Michel Gagne's work as well.
Something about the back foot (paw) bothers me. Perhaps if it was rotated outwards a bit? Maybe 30-40 degrees or so?
the toenails (claws) don't look right being straight on.

Just a suggestion. Fabulous work all the same.

excellent design...

only one major issue i see... i know it's not supposed to be realistic character... :) but his teeth... if he closes his mouth, he will probably die... ;)

I thought that was a rabbit, not a rat? It's part of his weird-ass rabbit collection as far as I understood.

That aside it seems nicely done. The only real crit I can come up with has already been mentioned, the hind paw being set in an unnatural angle. It'd be very cool to see it animated, bring 'er to life!

Oh, and it'd be good fun to see some wires and whatnot if that's possible.

The tail and horns glow! (any reason why?)
I love the rat, its been the wallpaper of my second pc for some months now...(it fits, as it also is small old critter with attitude:))
i always tought the mouth was inspired on some creatures of the orcs of warhammer... its interesting to know where the concept came from...
Dont know if its the compression but (as opposed to every other image) it looks worse on tft than in crt...

It reminds me something i've done some months ago with Poser elements and Lightwave.

To abd that the tail does not have hair.
Can we see a low poly wireframe?

Without furs did James Prevette in XSI.
I did not use His model, I did its myself from a beginning up to the end.
On the moment of creation I yet did not know about that that someone already create of this character.

2peekoot: You are right.. A jaw to close it will be not possible.. However as well as animate this animal.. The design is sick improper at her for this purpose.

I shall tell honourly, when I began to work above model, I and itself saw all lacks of design, as the wrong corner of back legs, about a jaw etc. But, I Very much did not want to leave from the sketch of Michael!

I know that textures are not so good
It because I studied to use DeepPaint3D and it costed to me of many nerves

Grids (so much, how many will wish) I can lay out only on Monday from work, therefore as the house at me is not present access to normal ftp. You and now can find it on my a site - http: // ww w.shiva3d.da.ru /, pleace only not all at once, therefore as it "geocities" and he quickly will cover my site because of the traffic.

2sergage: You are right, this ???????? on the book.. To me for it have not paid, simply have presented a pair of copies of the book

The large Thank by all for the comments!! :wavey:

P.S. I simultaneously with this work have laid out one more, newer work.. - http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=99348
And it is strange for me, that she has passed unnoticed. Explain why? :cry: I thought that she is more interesting.

you know that type of specular highlight on a tarantula's back? this would work well on the nose/snout area.

just a thing I'll criticize:
very realistic teeth in a maybe too cartoonish character style.

but is a good idea for a radioactive character!
