View Full Version : New character(wip)

12 December 2001, 10:55 AM
Hello everybody, here`s my latest renderings from a short i`m trying to stich together, still some surfacing/weightmap tweaking left(fence/body) but it`s not going to be photorealistic(like duh) so i kind of like it as it is, so.... advise/crits are welcome

The elbows strikes me as unatural, but that might change when you have finnished tweaking

Except from that it looks good. ;)

Awesome character :) I see a bit o Shrek in him ;) anyhoo nice design, but I think you might need to spend a bit more time of the joints, as the deformation looks kinda harsh in both pics... other than that he's great , is it rigged and ready to animate?

oh yeh I like the Pixarish eyes ;) are they just a gradient? and oh yeh he has no tongue :eek:

one more thing, the grass is superb!! what app r u using?

Wow, thanks for the quick respons (it took like ten min) lets see...after about 6 hours and a recyclebin full of dumped ears i finnaly went for the shrek look :) well he`s rigged but as you noticed the weights and joint deformations arn`t any satisfying so i`ll tweak some more. the grass is just lw7`s saslite. the eye textures are a made in photoshop but are fairly simple..... humhum

hum, very appealing. very nice.
i agree with all crits made by Lildragon.

i think u could change the plastic look to a shader more

interesting suggestion...Where could i find a shader like that ?

i'll try do some shader.

u can search in a very cool database of shaders at :

i like the look of the shader, theres nothing wrong with somthing that doesent look like a photo ( theres to much of that around already)
good luck with the rest of the short
