Cat with Mouse, Andy Runyon (3D)



Title: Cat with Mouse
Name: Andy Runyon
Country: USA
Software: CINEMA 4D, Photoshop
Submitted: 15th April 2011

(Re-uploaded with my full name; Sorry!)

I've been working on this thing on and off for the past several months, I'm so glad to be done with it finally. I like leaving the story up to the viewer, so I won't tell my version.

I used Cinema 4D R12, then photoshop for lots of post.

its awesome specially its teeth ! the only crit i can give is that the contact region between the rug and floor lacks some AO.

Superhero: Thanks! That's a good point, I didn't use AO all over so next time I'll have to think of that.

TheKrakan: You're the second person to think he's flying, I think his pose could use some work. It's a cartoony speedy run where he's mid air. Thanks for the comment!

Very cool style, the cat itself is just brilliant. I agree that the mouse's pose is a little confusing at the moment. Maybe some motion blur on its shadow would help?

Hehe this is so cool! I love the cats fur. It's not the usual stuff but very creative.

Yes, I too thought the mouse was accidently in the air Maybe if it was more stretched and had a bit of a bend on it...like an arch...that would create more of an illusion of running fast.

Great job!

Exclamation

Thanks for all the comments!

shinybinary & Crayox: Thanks, I've been drawing variations on this cat for years, this is the best version yet. I'll look into re-rendering this with a better mouse pose.

Eduardd: Thank you, I'm glad you found it funny and not too creepy!

alichenari: Hmm...I wonder what to do to the eyes?

AJ: Awesome! Glad you laughed.

Creieru: Thank you!!!

poked: Thanks, I'm working on a doggie next!

mattroussel: Thanks a bunch! I've loved your work for a while, I especially love the 'Wuzen' image!

Thumbs up

Stunning style! Everything perfect, expect maybe (i apologise) the hovering mouse (iíd give him longer legs to make the jump more obvious in that sharpness) and (thatís possibly just me) the missing volume of the wool ball.

Nonetheless an oustanding original work!

Thanks Zonkana! I'm re-rendering the image with a better pose now. It will have some better motion blur too. I'm not sure what you mean about the volume on the wool ball, do you mean it needs to pop a little bit more?
