WIP: Froggy

Just thought I'd share my latest WIP, as I haven't shown anything here for a while...

Feedback welcome...

Great character. The only thing I don't like about it is the lower lip. The liddle ridges seem like too much detail, if there is such a thing. The whole thing has a nice cartoon-like feel to it, and the ridges seem out of place--like everything on the frog is made out of plastic except for the lips. I don't know if I've explained it very well, but it's no biggy. Even with the lips, I like it a lot.

Looks fantastic, Kretin! Your character work always impresses me...simple, clean, and very expressive. I actually like the texture on the lower lip...I think it adds a bit of personality.

btw...I'm starting to go through your cartoon eye setup tutorial for a character I'm working on now...thanks again for that, it looks like it's going to work well for what I need to do.

it's better than good, it's great.
color balance maybe a little off, the feet are light brown and as you work your way up to the head it gets very dark. a slightly more even skin tone i think would be great, but don't listen to me i'm an idiot .

ooo tripleg, where's this eye setup tutorial? was a link posted to it in another thread?

Thanks guys

I've tried to incorporate some likeness of the voice artist for the character, who's a black dude, thus the coloring and the lips. The lighter color towards the extremities follows the natural coloring of frogs.

Here's a shot of the croak. Now I've just gotta figure out a way to tie the texture channels to the morph...



Glad you like the tute Triple G

The frog is very cool
Only thing: it could look a little bit more slimy.
Very nice style

Dreamwave: Wow, that's high praise. I've always loved the characters in the Abe series.

Limbus: Yeah, I initially had him more slimy, but I reduced it in favour of more cartooniness.

izmal: It'll be a little while til I get a chance to animate him, but I can't wait

samartin: Lol Just showing more expressions, I wouldn't read too much into it

In case you're wondering, for the croaking I tied the texures to the morph using an expression with Surface Mixer. Big thanks to Jake Carvey for helping me out on that one.
