Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Potted Caveman



Here's my initial sketch of the caveman. He's going to be drinking a bottle of liquid fertilizer while hanging out in a potted plant.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Potted Caveman sketch round 2



For some reason his loin cloth seemed wrong, so I gave him the full caveman leopard skin treatment. His feet also needed to be bigger.

Modeling: Potted Caveman Modeling 1



The start of the model for the caveman's head. He's kind of a block head, so I started with a delightful rounded cube shape.

Modeling: Potted Caveman model 2



Here I've started pushing in some eye sockets, pulling out some lobes, hollowing out a mouth, etc.

Modeling: Potted Caveman modeling 3



My first inclination was to do the brows and lips as separate geometry, but the I decided, what the hey, I'll try and model them right out of the head.

Modeling: Potted Caveman model 5



And here's the final caveman model. He just wants to wrap you in his big cavey arms.

Shading (Textured and lit): Caveman - Light Probe 01



Here's a picture of the light probe I shot in a friend's apartment. I want to use this to light the caveman using image based lighting.

Shading (Textured and lit): Caveman - light probe 02



Here's the light probe in the photo. I'll actually be replacing the light probe with the caveman down the line, as I want him sitting in the pot, swilling some delicious liquid fertilizer.

Shading (Textured and lit): Caveman - light probe 03



And here's the caveman textured and being lit by the light probe image. Next I'll begin compositing him into the photo.

Shading (Textured and lit): Caveman-Depth Pass



The next step was to do a depth render so I could add some depth of field to the image.

Shading (Textured and lit): Caveman-film grain



Along with blurring the image using the depth render as an alpha channel, I added some film grain to help the caveman integrate with the photo better.

Final Render: Caveman-Final Render



And here's the final render of the caveman, kickin' back in the potted plant, favorite beverage in hand. Strange behavior...? You be the judge. :) I'll upload a turn animation of the caveman character next.
