Character: Afro Samurai

As a break from the caricatures, I present: Afro Samurai!!

Rigged by T4D

EDIT: Might not be online or updating for a few days, laptop cord just sparked, fizzed and died so I'm gonna have to wait to get a new one

Must.... save... battery life.

wow what a great concept. I really like the idea. Both the model and the pose have great personnality. I really like the hair cut and facial traits coming directly from the 70s.

A few comments, if you don't mind :

- The feet look like boxes, perhaps you should make them a bit rounder. (Perhaps it is only a rendering / shadow issue).
- The square part of the sword is a bit too large
On my laptop's screen the extremity of the blade is a bit weird (antialiasing problem).
- I can't see his belt. Maybe you should make it a bit thicker.

I really like the Pi logo on the floor... Maybe you should increase the fuzziness of the shadows to make it a bit more enigmatic.

Wow what a great character

Thank You

My battery is low so I'm going to have to make this quick. I'll pick up a new Powercord later today and so some more renders

Wgreenlee: Thanks mad, I'm really glad you like him. I was concerned because he is a departure from the caricatures.

Merlin: Thanks!!!

Telamon :

You make some great points about the shoes and sword and stuff. I'll do some tweaking before the next render I think

Xtrm: hehehe thanks. Yeah I know... must... rig

T4D: Hey thanks man, You do half the work


AndrewE: Thanks Andrew! Glad you like him

Looking cool, Pi
Old 11 November 2003   #11
yeah, this one is too cool . . . however, it does look, to me, like a caricature of Jim Kelly, the guy that starred in that 77' film "Black Samurai" . . . either which way, this character rocks!!! Can't wait to start seeing your characters in action.

Yet another masterpiece from you, Pi! I like it very much! Do you have any plans with it? Is there a story behind him, or is he just feeling the same as the rest of us are these days; like kicking som Thurman @$$!
Old 11 November 2003   #13

I'm making replies quick and short since I had to order my power cord online, and will take two days to get here

Plans for him? I'll upload a bunch more renders when I get my powercord, I have posed them and set them up, just don't have the battery time to render them .

I also want to get a few animations done for a Demo Reel using him

My only crit is that I don't think the skintone is dark enough for him to be an "afro" samurai. It seems too pink to be afro. Other than that he looks really good. I love the green hair...adds to his character.
