Wow! Love the models and your texturing -i just hope i can give my characters the level of personality youve imbued yours with! Hes really adorable and you immediately warm to him! He reminds me of the sweetness of the more pleasant Oddworld characters!

03-14-2006, 01:50 AM

03-14-2006, 05:58 AM
wonderful characters... Where are they going?:thumbsup:

03-14-2006, 07:03 AM
What a wonderful frog! How long did it take to texture it?

03-14-2006, 11:08 PM
Daedra Lordis that zbrushed?

i use zbrush just for texture and bump, I prefere modelise in 3dmax.

WomballWhat a wonderful frog! How long did it take to texture it?

ow i don't know, i texture on zbrush for the skin it's very fast, clothes work on photoshop it's longer. for this first character i think 2or3 hours for texture all.

03-14-2006, 11:16 PM
yeah! wonderful concept well done! i love the grand father's style and colors!

good luck!

03-20-2006, 02:40 AM
Ahhhh I just love your clever details! Could we see a close-up of their baby tadpoles in the jars?! This idea really excites me -because even though I dont know the full story theres so much exploration of your characters personalities -which after all is the main point of the brief -that its absolutely entrancing!

03-20-2006, 03:10 AM
ah man ... not a frog .. looks nice ... my model will fit right in.:sad:...

I feel like crying

all the frog's family leave their dry marsh towards another accessible place. The journey begins and it will be long.
The grandfather plays with the some of the children to distract them whereas the more adventurous ones leads the walk.
the parents take care about of the little children and the transport.
