Thanks Crin, believe it or not I usually try and make my stuff as photoreal as possible. I do the best I can to make these look like 'real' toys. But I hear what you are saying and I agree why make 3d photos when you can use a camera. As for the character I will be doing some more work to bring the rest of the organic part of the model up to the level of the feet. So more work to do yet.

Hey thanks shakes. I am pretty happy so far. Sometimes it is pretty hard to take a crappy little line drawing and convert its essence into 3d.

Great story - sounds like a lot of work, but I'm sure you can make it justice. I like it very much
Hotwheel - is that like toycars?
As ususal, I find your approach very inspiring.

Shading (Textured and lit): Curly with textures



Here is the Curly model. I worked up the modeling quite a bit and got a start on the textures. Plus he is pretty well rigged. I finally got around to building a decent doll eyeball and I am pretty happy with it so far.

He ended up with more attitude than I thought he would.

Nothing cute about that toy, he's got attitude all right! Wonderful texture work - the dirt under his toenails just cracks me up. Great work

Audible laughter. The anistropic effect on the metal shader looks great. Something like a stainless steel pan.
