Ernie, Chris Colibaba (3D)

Name: Chris Colibaba
Country: Canada


Just made a wallpaper:


Software: Softimage Xsi 3.5-4

Hey all,
I thought I would test out this new gallery forum.
This is my new character, Ernie, who is going to be in my demo reel. Overall I am going for animation in my demo reel, however I would like to get some comments and critiques on my character.
Software used is Softimage XSI.
Let me know what you think!

i think if you brightened his face to contrast the coat and rest of the body, it would be much more appealing. Right now it seems like its all one shade, and rather boring.

nice modelling,i don't think you are concerned with realism,tho I might suggest you to give to your character skin an other shader/material,cause actually the one you put on him is quite 'flat'....you know the typical copper/zombie effect ....other than this i have to say it's a very good job just try to fix the thing i said(well it' up to you )

Hey Chris,

It's a nice character, but as already said, I'd also change some shaders - the eyebrows seem a little worried, the shader for the face is too dark, uninteresting and his teeth seem a little strange too, but maybe that's just the perspective. Guess it would help if you could post some close-ups of the face!

cool old man.

For some reason I really like the shoes. The toonish shape is fun. The jacket's texture is awesome, multicolor nice touch.

I think the teeth or dentures are a little wide, depth is not noticeable. Adding nails to the characters hands would balance out the amount of definition from the head to hands. Also the eyebrows look like toothpaste. Possibly he could be more attractive if you add a hair like texture to it.

I'm not sure if it is just me but I think he is missing a cane on his left hand.

Nice work Chris!

Looking good. I think the face texture should be broken up a slight. The hat has nice bump to it and because it's right next to face that seems like it doesn't have any bump is throwing me off.
I would add some bump to it, (some nice wrinkles would be cool) and look into a colour diffuse map to give it more of a skin feel.
I'm not sure if you were planning this but some kind of texture with bump on the hair and eyebrows will really add to his face.
This is a design issue, but to me I find the eye colour a little too saturated. If you tone down the outter blue colour it would seem to 'belong' more.
Overall I think it's a great start, keep it up.

nick.

hey chris ,

i hear your becoming quite the animator , your character looks very interesting , cant wait to see what you will do with this . Yeah only thing that stood out for me too was the shading on the skin , textures need a bit more detail also the bump/spec could use a bit of work too. keep it up

Hey guys, thanks a lot of the comments. I made a few changes over the last couple of days. The hair just has an alpha mask on it, which I think I will tweak a bit. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
