<ignore>Hey, I realized that my image sizes were way huge on the last thread I started, so I’m starting a new one that I’ll keep better groomed.</ignore>
This guy will be the focus of a thesis project that I will be working on for the next two semesters. The end result should be about 6 short animation tests (the jester lifting a boulder, the jester slicing up a bunch of spheres with a sword, etc…). As he’ll be my only character for two whole semesters, he’d better be good, right? So, I want as much (and as harsh) criticism as you guys have in you.
I’m using Maya 5, soon 6. I’ll be re-texturing him with renderman tools in order to use my school’s render-farm, so no texture crit yet. I’ll be starting on the body in a couple of days.
The look I’m going for is going to be a sort of modernized Renaissance jester. He needs to have dignity, but still look a bit of the part.
