Wow what a ton of progress! Hes looking great:applause:
But what does "A REAL DOGS’ BREAKFAST! " mean?
Maybe im just out of touch with the rest of the world but that’s a new one for me.


#62

LOL - Dog’s breakfast was a polite way of saying the render wasn’t what I’d expected. It is an English expression for a (scuse me) “pile of steaming crap”

Why’d I use it? I had the file sorted fine, everything unhidden then I pressed render - suddenly whole sections where missing, bits seemed cut away etc etc.

I still have sorting out to do - most of the image maps have translated into colour settings ( I had specularity, transparency etc etc) but 9.5 seems to have re-written them.

I feel like I’m 2 steps on but a whole lotta steps back at same time.

Off now, posting more “progress” tommorrow!


#63

He is looking awesome. You really got him looking Rasta. I love the look.


#64

Got my zip drives home, fired up AM and…

all my image map details had been wiped. Well, I am working with version 9 so my own risk, I knew the dangers of relying on version 9.

Taking a break today to clear the head, breathe some deep breaths and mutter into the wind.

Version 9.51e on both machines - PC at work and Mac at home. If I don’t show up again before the dealine - May I take this opportunity to wish all remaining contestants the best of luck!


#65

came in after thinking some deep peaceful thoughts to start afresh, turn the pc on (9.51e on my mac won’t open the files properly) and…

a screen death…

3hrs and one new video card later here’s what I’ve done today.

My deadline is tonight - any news on “the Set” yet?


#66

Looks very good, despite your computer troubles! Hang in there! I’m looking forward to seeing how far you can go!

I love the wool socks.

Jim


#67

anyone know why a PC would just sort of “hang?”

does it get clogged up and need clearing out somewhere? I work with Macs mainly buT was given a PC (so’s I could learn XSI)

one good side of my problems (just having shut Task Manager down TWICE at the wall switch) is I get a couple hours tommorrow, maybe get a pose done…

Might be able to make one last post tonight. If no luck tommorow or I have to wipe everything - may I say again -

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND PLEASE CAN WE CHOOSE A SET TONIGHT??


#68

last for tonight… hopefully not the last for the comp…?

01- pose to do
02- whiskers to blend in/out
03- eyebrows

have I forgotten anything?

04 - wipe hard disk and ie-install everything! :applause:


#69

I love the textures. Expesially the rope and the socks.


#70

I realy like his body shape! I can imagine the way that he would walk, all loose and floppy. You are doing phenominaly well dispite your evident technical problems.

Oh, I agree, that rope texture is realy good. Good luck!
