Tree Frog Character

Recommended Posts

Hello - I thought I would try to knock it up a notch in my modeling to see what I was capable of doing at this point. With a little struggling I think I am finally starting to "get it" a bit. I modeled the frog and was trying to think of the most detailed, challenging outfit I could put him in, and I went with a scuba diving setup. So anyway - here we are - I still need to rig him up and think of a short animation to put him in, but this is what I have so far. Any suggestions that you can see to help impove my modeling or anything else, would be much appreciate. Thanks - Eric

Thanks for the compliments.

 

"But hey, what does a frog need scuba diving gear for?"

 

That was what my 3 year said "Daddy take it off, frogs don't need that, they just jump in the water. I tried to explain - daddy need modeling practice and the scuba suit has a lot of detail - he gave me an odd look and walked away. ;)

Great character. Not sure he needs the pants, but the rest looks really good. Can't wait to see some poses.

Interesting "outfit" for a frog

that's an awesome model, and the bcd is freaking awesome. You a scuba diver?

 

One thing that kinda popped out at me, the knife would be really hard to take out cause the strap is holding it to his leg at the grip.

 

Cool character :)

Very clever and very well built model. You could really run with this theme, a bird flying a helicopter, a monkey using an elevator, a cheetah in a race car, etc. :)

Thanks again for the nice words- I know... I got lazy w/ the knife holder - I'll have to fix that ;) The item on his side that looks like a bag on is actually his face mask, which I modeled from his head - it just looks big, because he has a big head and eyes. The model is just for modeling practice - I plan and putting together a short animation w/ him on a search and rescue raft on the ocean - I am playing around with a water tutorial now. After that I'll stick it as another sample on my site. -Eric
