Here we go...

Thanks for all the great comments! Didn't think I would get on the FRONT PAGE!!!

As for the general workflow, I usually start with a rough basemesh in Max, take it to ZB for what I call first phase modelling, this is where I rough out the basic shapes, proportions and volumes. I then get this provisionally approved by the Director and begin second phase modelling, which involves working closely with the rigger to re-topologise the mesh. I then pass the model onto the rigging dudes while I concentrate on the UV's, displacements and textures. I usually add all of the high frequency detail in zbrush as a normal map, it's important to treat this phase as a texturing task as it's way too easy to get carried away with intense details when the base mesh isn't sufficiently developed. Call me old-school, but tiny bumps and wrinkles are not considered a part of the modelling process.

Thanks mate, I really miss working with you guys. By the way, REALTIME UK do some truly awesome work, especially the 'A' team (you know who you are)

Thanks dude, was a bit of a strange job, as you know, but a pleasure to work with you.

I'll try and get some wires ASAP!

He does have legs, but I didnt detail them as we really couldnt see them that close in the commercial, I'll post a pic so you don't think I am just lazy.

We always work alongside concept artists and character designers. On this job I had the pleasure of workinh with Mushie Mahbub (http://www.mustashrik.com/)
This Ogre was supposed to be a bit World of Warcraft, although you are correct, he does look a liitle like Fungus the Bogeyman! totally by accident though, and you are not the first to say it!
