Just playing around with ideas here. Very quick sketch. Just looking at ideas/perspective, first concept of a few.

Idea: A war is happening, soon their world will be destroyed. Their home town will soon perish, so they must start a journey to a new place. Very quick sketch, just getting general ideas

3rd Idea. This little kitten is let outside for the first time. Again just trying for perspective. Thinking about making the "backyard" more like a jungle. and make things look huge compared to the kitten. :)

The kitty one is the best so far!!! keep er up dude!!

same concept as last, just alot clearer for those who cant see anything from my scribbles :P. I'm thinking of expanding the back into more of a rain forest or dense jungle, still undecided.

03-02-2006, 09:38 AM

03-02-2006, 09:46 AM

Nice cat! I recommend you, if you're using 3DSMax (but I suppose other packages have the equivalent), to use a "Symetry" modifier on your cat, so that it welds nicely in the middle while you're modeling it, and if you stack a mesh/turbosmooth modifier, the preview is much clearer since it is smoothed as one piece and not as two mirrored objects (so the middle of the cat is smoothed nicely too).

GL buddy! :thumbsup:

Again, brought the head into zbrush to get a basic idea of where im heading..Any crits or comments would help :).

Hey amz23, Im using Silo to model. The seam is easy to get rid of, just it was a quick print screen :P. Thanks for your interest :D

03-08-2006, 06:48 AM
Keep it up man! its looking good! no crits just rock on!

03-08-2006, 07:00 AM
Great. I love the cat model and i love your concept...

Expecting great results from that forest.:)

03-08-2006, 09:24 AM
impressive modeling. Nothing to crit for the moment.

03-08-2006, 09:27 AM
I really like the 4th conceptual drawing and the model is pretty impressive!

03-11-2006, 07:42 PM
Nice modeling. :thumbsup:

03-11-2006, 07:46 PM
I like the progress you've made by taking the model into ZBrush. Can't wait to get some practice using the app myself.

Do you plan on using fur for this kittie?
