HCM #31: Pixar Tribute: Russell from Up!

Russell from movie Up!

Hi gang! Finally that challenge has start! My First ever challenge in 3D.

I love pixar movies like you. I choose Russell character for many reasons:

  • Funny character in spirit
  • Lot of different items to model
  • Lot of different shaders and fabrics on it
I hope to do my best with Russell. Keep his spirit! I will start today as my offday. I had take one week (the HMC 30 extension) to gather all the items references.

I will use Softimage, Zbrush and Photoshop

Looking closer on his gear, I see many of those snap hook on Russell

Very clean and fast work here so far!
Great character choice too!

What are you rendering this with? MR? If yes, you might want to consider giving 3Delight a shot instead. It's free and may give you a the right Renderman-ish feel for this challenge.

Ya mentalray! but ya I would try your renderer because Softimage don't work with renderman and because it's a Pixar Tribute.. Why not use there renderer!
Old 06 June 2011   #13
To clear things up for you, since I am getting the feeling you did not fully understand my suggestion. 3Delight is a Renderman-compliant renderer, creating a similar look as Pixar's very on Renderman, which indeed is not available for Softimage. But... luckily 3Delight is filling that gap and available for free download as a 2-thread version from dna-research here. I havent tried it in Softimage 2012 yet, but was told by support that the 2011.5 plugin works fine for 2012.

Oh ok, I tought you talking about a standalone software

I begin to think I'm going too deep in modeling for a pixar stylized look. So I will slow down. The items are so far of the camera (but i love details)
