haha, sorry guys. I haven’t lost any interest it in just yet. It’s just that I moved last week and I’m going to Vegas on Wednesday. So it’s been a long time since I’ve had time to actually sit down and work on this. I did a little last night, but I don’t really like to be one of those people that posts minor updates (aka: Hey, I made his left finger longer… critique!!! pleeezzee!!!).
And I really liked Archeophant’s idea about adding trash to him. I was thinking of having a banana peel and tin can clinging to his tail and some toilet paper on his foot. And maybe some mustard or ketchup on his coat. What do you think? Does that just contradict the soldier theme too much?
Also not sure if I should make a mouth that opens or not… i guess that will depend on polys left?
Here’s a quick story I made up:
The raccoon was always picked on by the other animals for being messy and having no self respect, for digging in trash cans. So he went off and stole a soldier’s uniform in an attempt to look formal and gain respect. Well despite his best efforts he still can’t resist digging into the first trash can he can find. He took up the Bazooka in an attemp to look cool, despite teh fact that his uniform doesn’t match with the weapon choice. Another poor decision by a simple minded creature.
proudclod: Yeah I kinda agree. I wanted to make it look like his fur is packed really tight into that jacket, making him full and rigid. Right now it’s just bind pose anyway, so I can relax him later.
Andy, I hope so too. I think I got like a month, I better double check…
