Hi People,

This is, I guess, a "publicity" still from a short in-house animation we are creating about a guy trying to watch TV whilst being bugged left, right and centre by his four kids. You know how it is...(or if you're lucky you don't!)

This image was entirely rendered in Lard-o-Vision (err...MAX4 and photoshop).

Anyway, just whetting your appetite (hopefully) for the short, which will be downloadable from our site as soon as its finished.

Let us know what you think!

Look'n cool!
Better check those hands of the big guy, his inner hands look a lil odd...
And that hard fold of his underchin...
Oh yeah, maybe scale the heads of those kiddies a but.
They look like small grown ups.
But anyway, great stuff!! :airguitar

Hiya,

Whehheeey, that's frenetic!!!

However, two little crits:
- the nails are too white for me. They should be more pinkish.
- about dad's white short: if it is dirty, it is not a used shirt, but a randomly painted one; if it's really dirt, the other clothes are too clean.

How about a wallpaper? I could use it... ;)
