Sideshow - characters - freakles

This is my first shot at a challenge and hope Im goin about it alright...

Story is a freakshow family tired of the lime light and the little/no respect who take there savings to move into a small home in the burbs. Enraged that such people would take up residence in their community the people of NORMA ban together to send the Freakles into exile. Little did they know the Freakles savings account bought them a hefty arsenal and they aint takin sh*t....

Pa Freakle

Ma Freakle

Stiltz Freakle

and Junior

I'll prolly only model one but havent figured out wihich one yet...
Hopefully Im doin this ok...

Thanks guys! I appreciate it. ( Thanks Prs-Phil btw) I prolly will model the last one and Im going to use stiltz for the 2d challenge. I may clean all of them up eventually and make a family circus poster but who knows...
anyways figured Id post a clean up of stiltz here to see what people thought I should model him or junior...but he'll most likely be 2d.

color update:

Again thanks for the comments!

I think you should model the stilts guy, there is more room for diversity in the texturing of him, you got wood metal and leather, as well as the tattoos, I think it would be cool. Even though his abnormality is not all that abnormal, there are a lot of people with no legs, but you make it way more interesting in the way he moves around with the stilts in his hands… very cool.

Just my two cents

Thanks for the kind reply! I think youve put it into perspective. This is my first forray into low poly modelling ( actually I have no clue but figured this would be the best way for me to learn as I couldnt think up anything for myself) and think he would be a good start.

Ive started his stilts and will try and start on him this week. ( getting married on thurs so I dont know how much I'l be able to accomplish) Heres what I have so far:

Cool, cant wait to see him in full 3d and texture mapped, the 2d color job is nice. Was that done in Photoshop? It looks good.
Old 08 August 2003   #10
thanks.! Im not much of a modeller ( cant even figure out how to find out where my poly count is :P ) Yeah the 2d is was done in photoshop 6.

Heres an update. Got the body sorta blocked out :

the guy with legs in his hand is great. a cool idea and the concept art is nice too.
im curious what you make out it in 3d.
Old 08 August 2003   #12
i really like this idea, and i know its in its early stages, but you need to think about the size of the hands and the thickness of the at the moment his grip wouldnt be big enough to hold the stilts. (you probably know this but im just pointing it out)

looks good so far tho

Thanks guys
made in max 5.

yeah Im goin to extend the fingers out more.

K didnt get to work on it much last night but I do have an update. Made his shoes a lil wider and smoothed em out a bit and started on the face. Was hopin to do more :(

hehe great concepts man. I love that coloured image

Sweet man... sure it's gonna look great once it's textured up
Old 08 August 2003   #15
I really liked your concept for the wooden legged man. The model is coming along very well and its still in the early stages!
