I've just had a chance to go through your thread and I'm very impressed by your beautiful modeling. As for the comments on the terrain - I really like those rocky hills leaning in towards eachother. They are very beautiful but also give a bit of a spooky feel about it which I like a lot, like they're trying to close in on the pathway. It definitely makes it more interesting

Hi Mark, and thank you for the comment! I meant to have somewhat contrasty
background as oppose to the foreground, but not too much to make it scary, cause it is supposed to be attractive to youngsters as target demographic, so it can't be too spooky!
I'm glad you liked it!

Thanks alot, It's an hounor, and I'm very pleased that you like it, I really admire your style!

Hey Mathias, really like your work...especially the house with hearts and you female character...might want to varry the spacing of the fringe on her boots though to make it look more organic? Looking forward to see more! Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the warm comments and crits!

Torsten; I'm glad you liked it!
Mohammed; So very kind of you, That was just a test, no SSS or proper lighting, I
still have a difficult time choosing the right face, I made 7 heads so far and will do
one or two more, until I get it right!
Eric; thanks, You are right about the fringe, though it won't even show in the final
comp which is 1200X600, but if I get more time I would love to do a beauty render
with more details and proper fringe of sool!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Shading (Textured and lit): Mina

Here in Mina! I was looking for a way to give her kind of a sad and nostalgic expression, cause she's leaving her grandma' and at the same time being slightly entertained by her dog's gesture, who is trying to cheer her up!

Shading (Textured and lit): Mina and backpack

Yo my friend you Italian stallion, Finally I meet you again! So good to see you again!
Thanks a lot for your support pal! Hope you are ok and everything is going your way!
I really really hope you are in for the next challenge! I know you work hard and have
very little time, but hey, life is short and if your work doesn't let you do what you
like, then you need to change your job! Just kidding!
Stay healthy brother and have fun!

Modeling: Chin chin!

Here is the main character! I wanted it to be as close to a "Petit Griffon" as possible, though there are not so many shaved blueprints of this breed. Now on to weight map painting!

Hey Mathias, I think nearly everyone's thread is going a bit soft...kind of funny...well, life needs that too. Like the expression on the face of your main character and look forward to seeing Chin Chin shaded -- very cute (and soft!). Good luck!

Thanks Eric for your support and I'm glad you liked it!
Good luck with your thread too!
