I have added this image to my personal work portfolio. I made this for fun during the CG Society’s Hardcore Modeling mini challenge “The Oceans” I really wanted to make it with the mouth open ready to take a chunk off of a meal but I just didn’t have the time to dedicate to it as I wanted it; this was a good compromise.
Continued the work on this guy; modeled the feet and I think it is starting to look “Gundam” like or recognizable. Now I need to finish the small details that connect the feet to the lower legs, then I’ll move on to the chest. This is probably the most ambitious model I’ve done to date and I hope it turns out well in the final image.
Progress with this model is slow due to little free time left but going nonetheless I have finished the lower leg frame and now I’m adding the smaller mechanical parts inside the calf and then will be the foot. The right side will be covered with the armor so that will help with the scene size and render times.
Anyone that has visited the “Ole Town” Bar at the pier has heard one of the many stories told by old man Jenkins. His stories are very colorful, full of drama, some are simple and credible enough, others are out worldly and fantastic. Old man Jenkins’s stories and credibility are always up for debate but whether you believe him or not one thing is for certain, he can tell a great story!
Started sculpting the fisherman, here I put most of the time into the head since its what’s gonna be seen the most besides the arms. Actually, with the hat you will barely see the top of the head but the shadows should make the face look pretty cool. I’ll extract geometry from this mesh to make the shirt and pants. This is the last piece of the puzzle
I’ve been making some good progress on this image. I created the teeth, the bigger ones still need some work, created the water and worked out the underwater/surface feel that I was looking for. I was also checking for correct 32 bit rendering, color display after gamma correction (working in linear space) and checking for errors etc.
Next on the list is the fisherman and fishing rod, after that, hi res rendering for comp. Almost there, the teeth make a huge difference, don’t they?
