Something new

I feel pretty stuck on that model right now, so instead of spinning my wheels I feel like starting something else. These are just some quick drawings trying to develope a character that I think would be fun to model. He will be posed, unlike all my other models, and I'm thinking something similar to the bottom right drawing, but with a few changes. Maybe I could even have him defending something like a kitten just to add a little comedy and character to the scene.

The energizer bunny of modeling projects

I spent today finishing up UV's on the rest of his gear and started laying in some color. Everything that is black hasn't been touched. I may have to put this project down for 2 days and focus on some sculptures, so I probably won't update tomorrow.

Well today wasn't as productive as it could have been, but that's ok... here's an updated WIP. The colors on the textures so far are looking pretty flat.. I'll have to touch that up. I also plan to spend about 2 days with hypershade in maya to do the detailed material work.

Still working on this guy, although with Siggraph just around the corner, this will have to be done by next weekend. Anyways, I just felt like posting a WIP because I'm pretty happy with how the concept is evolving.

A quickie

I modeled this in roughly 5 hours, maybe a little less. Its a throw back to an old school Final Fantasy monster that was for some reason memorable... This can be considered a WIP (work in progress) since it isn't refined, but I don't think that was my intention. Although if people like it I could do some nice detailing and texturing.
