I am posting in here because its easier to organise and post more and i want some opinions to help me along to way.

My entry:

My idea is to create a snowy scene with 2/3 characters: a wolf, female hunter and if i have time a male bandit or creature.

Her weapons include a pair of daggers and a small bow made of crystals.

I want it to be semi realistic like in those game cinematics. Currently, i am currently working on the female hunter and wolf. I have the body done, but it looks like a mans body and since I want to take away something from this challenge i do not want any of the sculpting to be haphazard.

So far i am having troubles with making the wolf look like a wolf so i think i need to gather alot more references before i try again.

heres the head in its current state: (

the fur ball: (

Iam trying out different hair styles. Also, now that i have added some hair I think iam going to change some features of the face again.

Iam working on the clothes design its going slow because iam using a mouse :banghead: I dont want to get r.s.i

As for colour i am thinking white, red and blue at the moment

Wow, the crystal/snow and the fur test are looking really convincing. You need now to spend some time on the models to get with it :)

Keep it up !

Some older hair test i did... render times are long so I may have to drop the wolf and instead do model a summon creature like a dragon or serpent... crystalised of course to stick with the theme I think this will give me more freedom when sculpting anyway. Also, the hair will probably take a few days to do since it is difficult.

I blocked out most of the items... bow, two daggers, sheaths etc. costume design wise, i still have to refine it. (

Good job man! Especially the face is very well-done, and rightfully, as we pay most of our attention to it.
The jaw in the sideview is a bit too long. Also usually you have one ear distance between the ear till the jaw line. Check it with references. The fingers could be longer, and feet closer together.
