Rat Man - Titan Quest, Iron Lore Entertainment (3D)

Title: Rat Man - Titan Quest
Name: Iron Lore Entertainment
Country: United States
Software: 3ds max, Deep Paint, Photoshop

Iron Lore Entertainment recently sponsored Cgchatís Comp 28. I was able to get permission to participate with the contestants using an actual asset for our game Titan Quest.
Here is how it turned out:

During the course of the challenge I was asked about my technique for texturing hair. I made this Hair Demo to show how I hand painted all of it:
Itís in .swf format as that was the smallest file size versus quality I could put together. Simply download the zip and open with your web browser (you need Shockwave installed) or with a Shockwave player. Iím working on getting an .avi hosted somewhere other than my server. :)
This was thrown together real quick. Itís in real time and simply shows a few techniques for achieving different types of hair and fur with some custom brushes. Itís basically the technique I learned from this great tutorial:
That tutorial also goes into how to create custom brushes.
and for fun here is his run cycle. Big ups to Brian Labore who rigged and animated this guy and to Rich Sullivan for helping me get started on the concept!

Here is the original work in progress thread:

Bobo_the_seal: Brilliant work. High Poly mumbo jumbo be damned. Low poly characters like this have so much more life. Incredible detail. Stunning Sketchwork!
