Well, the first thing that comes to mind about a pilot is a fox, but i think we all know where that is coming from . But seriously, how about a squirrel? I could totally see a squirrel dressed up in the bomber get up, with the scarf. I can guarantee a win right there cause he'd be the cutest entry. (guarantees made by Devised Poly should be taken by a grain of salt. Devised Poly is not responsible if the guarantee stated does not fall through) ;P

yeah fox was the first thing that occured to me as well, but...well you know

squirrel isn't bad, though with the flight goggles he might start looking like a certain cartoon character...still mulling it over

EDIT - have decided! pilot will be mouse!

Early concepts - flight suit is based almost entirely on WWII Japanese fighter pilot flight suit, right down to the compass round his neck. Am trying to accessorize the other crew members, so that suit doesn't get too repetitious across the diff. models.

Nation represented is called Candor, these fine troopers represent the Candorian Air Force, logo forthcoming (and will be on armbands).

redesigned Ace to look a little less, ah, furry if you get my drift...



A lot more potential for an interesting character here too!

Coming along nicely. And I think going with the mouse was a good choice.

Looking really good. Nice concepts - youve obviously thought about this a lot. One thing though, how do I judge this entry, and do you have to post each character seporately? or can you submit them all as one?

.......Thats if you get it finished in time - 75% of comp entries seem to remain unfinished!

The texture limit and polygon limit will be used for all his characters as a whole. So he'll have less room for detail than the other entries. That was his choice. I would judge the entry as one whole effort. It looks to be a great entry so far.

thx for the encouragement guys - it will definitely be a challenge to get all these of characters in under budget, but i'm excited to try it.

Also designed CAF logo, but it is a REALLY crappy sketch, so I'm not posting it.

nice on the concept work, I'm looking forward to the finished product. I like the way your design idea works, multiple character that are simpler use an all in one principle, creative.

can't wait to see the other characters and texture wip.

Thumbs up

Concepts and models are looking great so far. Re-using texture space will be absolutely critical on this to be able to get all four characters looking nice and still be on budget. I am looking forward to seeing how you tackle that challenge. It looks like you are right on target for the polycounts. Good luck, I'm definitely keeping an eye on this.

Have lots of other stuff to work on this weekend so I probably won't get to Shellshock until next week sometime. Here's the rest of the crew though!

PS - Wendy is the mechanic, she is a tad too large to fit in the plane
