ok this is just a rough (obviously at this point) but I wanted to get something up to share. Its a little to anime for me I want to push it more real, but not going for photo real. And I need to figure out how to make her more latina... The book almost doesn't come out and say it but I'm almost positive she is, anywhooo. I've been reading the book and dreaming of my idea. So far I know I want to make Patricia so here's my modeling so far.

oh that's a stand in for her hair in the back and her eye brows are also just place holders.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: little death



I know this isn't how it is in the book. In the story she isn't this close to the fighting, AND I don't think this was the view of earth, that said, I think I can tell more of the story by sort of combining different actions that happend relatively far apart (distance) and bring them together to give a better emotional understanding of Particia's frame of mind.

Modeling: patricia model version 3



here's my current wip, just trying to get the proportions down... she's going to be clothed... I'll add the hands, probably just rough, I don't think I'll show them in the final piece.

if anyone is interested I used this tutorial to sort of guide me along the modeling process. it's 3d max but good for any package. For me it also helps b/c I can get too focused on tweeking one or two parts and not finish the whole character.

Modeling: test renders of patricia



I'll probably sew her together soon. Still just putting the pieces in place.

Looking good man! I really like the perspective and viewpoint in your concept sketches, should be an interesting result. The model looks great aswell, has a roughness to it that kinda makes it feel almost like one of those plastacine stop motion characters
Will be following this thread

The environment is looking really sweet!

How do you plan on incorporating Patricia into the scene?

thanks guys, the proportions will probably change a lot. I think the bore hole needs to be bigger, and I'll make a room of which the camera and Patricia will be in that we look out to that.
Also with something as big the plasma board I was thinking of how to architecureally enhance it. I think I'm going to take cues from the Golden Gate bridge, because it's huges and styalised achitectually.

Modeling: architecture added



Since the stoners were good advanced at architecture as well I wanted to add that... I went with Art Deco as a theme, b/c it was futureistic and yes old. I'll keep adding details, right not the direction is scale, I need to make things liek the small fences on the ground to give this all some scale. I tend to over model b/c I don't like to texture. So... you'll probably see more modeling before any textures come 'round here.

I messed with shading Patricia, but I can tell that I need to read some of the rendering tutorials on SSS skin. So more of her to come.

sonicx, Hahaha I've read the book and I wonder that too! This is what I've dreamed up about that. I kept wishing Greg Bear would sit next to me and describe it more in details. the deatils are spread thoughout the book, so you can't just go reread on section... and theres definitly interpretations to how it's written, like ti will say the cross section of something is description, but the cross section could be either the yx or yz... ya know? and when he says the lake goes around the whole chamber... well does that mean like some people are doing liek the world wraps around the axis or does it mean it goes around the parimeter... I'm going with the flat version of the ground, "like a deep valley", but yeah DEFINITLY some interpretation.
