View Full Version : Character: Gummie Bears - Toadie

05 May 2004, 08:22 PM
Made this during a lot of stress, 6h. it's one of 2 3D worksamples for an artschool. Didn't know what to do then I found 50 screenshots from Disney's Gummie Bears and thought Toadie looked cool.

Used 3D Studio Max 6 and Vray.

I noticed that the mouth and right eye got a few flaws. Maybe you can see some too?

wellwell here it is:

Small crit on the eye texture. It's vertically stretched out and I think you should tweak it so it fits more round than oval looking. Oval irises don't seem right.

Thanks alot! I will tweak the eyes to get them right, actually I used fish eyes, thought they looked most cartoon'ish.. wellwell, thanks again!

Very cool. This character deserved to be developed more I think :)

i don't know if its my computer but there are white boxes sticking out of the character's eyes. the fur looks a little disconnected, i think if you add a gradual transition into long hairs it would look better. otherwise good character design.

Ilovegraphics: Shure, it needs alot tweaking! I will give it some more time when given.

ILS: Yes, you are right the fur was not what I wanted it to be, didn't have time to get the lighting right with GI on the mesh and "shag shader" on the fur.. and the eyes, what you see is "Soft boxes" suppose to look like you have taking a photo in studio enviroment, maybe I carried away with the reflection for a while :o)

Thanks! /Andreas
