My mascot entry

Recommended Posts

Well i sent this picture in for the mascot contest on the 30th, but it didn't get there i guess. I thought that i would post it so as to be seen. Thanks for any comments.

Wow! That's a wonderful image. Lots of attention to detail.

 

It kind of reminds be of the artwork for 'The Butterfly Ball'.

 

What a great shame to miss the boat! Did you send it at the last minute?

 

Well done anyway.

Thanks for commenting. I sent it in on time, but think that i failed to follow some guide lines or something. I haven't seen anything from 'The Butterflies' Ball', and will have to check it out.

Great little image, lots of detail and a whimsical storybook feel

Thanks again for the nice comments. If this computer stuff was just a little easier to put together(time wise) i might try at making some illustrated kids books.

 

This was my first rigged character, and probably the last one i will make with 14 appendages. :D

Very nice image, very creative... I do like the storybook character of the whole pic...

 

Sorry you didn't make the contest.

 

Can't imagine riging him, would like to see him in some animation.

It really is a lovely image - love the coloring & textures, nice lighting - very interesting character - & of course very storybookish - You must post more often, would enjoy seeing more of your works - Sorry you didn't get in...

 

(Which guideline was broken?)

I will try to refrain from using thanx too much, but there it is again.

 

I rigged everything but the feet for animation, i cant figure out what to do with those yet. They are posable, but there isn't any ease of animation functionality (cant find his center). When i rebuild his feet i will make them animation ready.

 

After i get that squared away, i will try for some animation. Of course i am going to need a proxy model, due to his extreme heft.

 

As for guide lines, i don't know. I missed something along the way.

It just didn't get there.

 

Please forgive the shiny newbie responses, its my first time you know.

Great character!

 

I really like his personality, (or what i think his personality would be)

 

Good Job :D

That's great. Is it all AM? Some of it looks very photorealistic! Shame you didn't make the contest. Wonder why.

I am glad that he portrays some personality. I couldn't tweak him enough it seemed, so thanx.

 

All animation master. I used radiosity for that photo look. It took forever, but was worth the wait i think.

That's a great image! I'll try to find out tomorrow why it didn't get included?

Very nice!

 

That stone work in the background makes me think of what they might be looking for in Tin Woodsman of Oz. Check out Mrs. Yoop castle sketches and see if you don't agree.

I was wondering how you got that lighting. That is a beautiful image! I love it.

I belive he said he used radiosity!

 

 

If you wouldn't mind, i would like to know your basic light setup.... I'm interested in radiosity, and your setup seems to have worked very very well!

 

 

Thanks

Cronos - Thanks.. Glad to see that you made the contest too.

 

Martin- Thank you for checking up on that.

 

Rodney- I will take a look at the mrs. yoops cstle sketches. I'll get back to you on that one.

 

Paul - The link was helpful. I tried to google it yesterday, and only got butterfly pictures. very colorful, and interesting stuff.

 

Cosmonaut- Thanks.. I am happy that it finally got there.

 

Zaryin and Bentothemax - Some time in the next week, i will post some wireframe shots, and the lighting specs over in the radiosity forum. If any one wants the scene without the caterpillar, i would love to contribute it. I don't have any web space at the moment so help on that would be needed.

Boy hose bricks look fantastic. I almost wish the character wasn't there. Not that its bad or anything but it doesn't hold a candle to that background you made. Great composition and lighting.

cronos- You too, being late worked out, we both placed.

 

Wegg- Thanks. I agree with you on that one. I felt the background detracted from my character a little too much. Sadly the scenery took only a fraction of the time it took to make the Caterpillar.

 

Brian- Thank you.

Tobias,

 

I do have to say, that is one of the most creative and refreshing characters that I've seen in a very long time on any 3D related forum. The main element that I like about it, is the feeling that I get when I look at it- I want to get to know this guy, he looks very interesting. Great job, and keep 'em coming...that kicked my ass to get some characters rendered that are in my head also!

 

Again, awesome job!

 

Cheers, Noah
