Wow thats one ugly troll haha!

Maybe the fish could be a bit more shiny? and a scales bumpmap too maybe.

I agree about the eyes as well, the light would give a highlight on his eyes.

The design is really cool, I love the big waist and the creepy feet.


I think the water could use some improvement, maybe more reflective and a bump/normal map?



Nice scenes in here, like the colors and the lighting!

Hya $imon

Ahh yes, you are very observant, thankyou!. the water is, indeed, unwater like. I have been meaning to jump in the deep end and do a customised bump map around the stepping stones etc... or where the fish break the surface in oneof those olde renders.

I think doing a bumpmap amd using that as the spec/reflection map, then inverting it for the transparent map would really make a difference - assuming that where the transparency is greatest the reflection will be least!

The fish is almost cardboard cut out, which is bad. She/he does need to be more shiny in parts as it has been dragged from the water - good point! A few drips of water might help!

Thanks again. I value your input. :)

Renders from a different angle. gottooo fix that gap between the waist and the belt at the back - pure render and slight photoshopping :0

locked for a while cause am off line.

see you soon :)

whooohoooo!  Look at that guy go!  What a great joy ride!!!  Very cool, Andrew!  One of your "less abstract" works, and really great!

I don't mean this in a bad way, but at first I thought the pilot was Alfred E. Newman (Mad Magazine's cover character). I always thoroughly enjoy your works!

working up an Hylonomus - earliest reptile

looks like a normal reptile to me ;). Have fixed the pelvis and rigged him since this shot.

The stripey texturing with blacksmith 3d over a photoshopped snake skin. The coloured stripes set to "screen" allow the snake skin to show through.

Anim8or mesh, carrara render.
