Caterpillars!

Dwalcott, good job on yours so far, I like the cartoony look to it :)

As for yours Indian8or, looks totally evil ;)

Good start Kreator! Definitely looks like he's got a sheep's bottom, haha. I guess you should make the fur a little more evenly distributed :)

Cool pencil-head thing Khaspah, I remember that one the most out of the woodland creatures. Good luck with the rest of it!

almost cool, I think Bill's head is turned the wrong way!


I feel slow compared to everyone else  :-\ Oh well, here's most of the head done, started a little bit on the hair.

It's not fair that I have so little time to work on this.. after tomorrow it will be a bit better I hope..

Cowtail, thats awesome! you might make progression a bit slower, but your modeling is top notch! would you mind sharing a wireframe? ;) Love it!

Here is an update, not much on the modeling, just started to make a scene a bit, i felt obligated to post an update haha..

That's what I've done at the moment. Jaw, eyes and teeth will be next parts to model...

It looks that there will be a lot of fun while this competition ;) So far I like caterpillars the most :D
Arik: Your Jabberwocky looks really well modelled.
Kreator: Rabbit looks too fluffy in my opinion. It might be because of fur which is a bit too perpendicular to mesh.

These are all coming along so well!  

Simon, dwalcott, and Indian8or... I like how there are variations of the caterpillar... Each of them are so differing from the other. Simon! Where are the hands???? (personal j/k)

CowTail: Your Tweedle-Dee (or Dum?) is looking cool, too! That's a really strong expression there...

Kreator: Your rabbit's looking good! I like the scene you're putting together to go with it all. Is the rabbit hair going to carry up and about his brow and head?

dwsl: That is a very devious and nasty cat you've got working... I like seeing the sketch and conversion process.

As for my Jabberwocky, I took a bit of a break over the weekend, but am back at it... neck, body and arms taking form now... I decided to make this as if for animation, because I thought it might be fun to make him "whiffling through the tulgey wood"... so may re-proportion the body and such, because I'm still a bit unsure of how it will look. That beast has such a long neck and all, it's outrageous and hard to visualize until "boned".

Last image is just to try out for the line in the poem that reads, "The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame..."

dwsel: Nice start! I like your loops so far, one point of interest though is above the bridge of the nose, the loops seem to go a bit weird. Cant wait to see what your model will look like finished!

Kreator: I like how your scene is coming together! I see you havent done the hands yet, that was the last thing i did as well, its the hardest part i think :P

Indian8or; Nice interpretation of the caterpillar, it looks a bit female though, maybe that was meant, if not, try lighting the eyelashes a bit and get rid of the pink lips.. Maybe you are going for a female one and im making a fool out of myself now though >.< haha. Like the environment as well!

Arik: Nice going so far, hes looking pretty scary.



Here is the final version of my caterpillar.  Looking forward to seeing everyone else's models!

$imon, as usual loving your work. Awesome composure! You are going to place, lol.

As for my work its hard getting time with my current schedule... Going through some hard times here in Southern New Jersey... And being on the streets wouldn't really help any so. I keep good spirits, so i should be posting a update soon.

Arik: Thank you. As I progressed with side sketch I wanted to show it as well.

$imon: I don't like this area too. I planned bottom part of the face with guidelines for loops, but I left forehead for 'gonna be fine'. Actually the sphere I used for a back side of head was too lowres to join it smoothly with forehead, and I didn't added geometry there (my bad). Also there is a part which I didn't want to became triangle so I left this part to be filled after mirroring. Good that you don't see mess behind ear ;) When I put mesh smooth it looks good so I'm thinking to leave it as it is (face won't be rigged and animated).

small update

I think these are my final renders.

If i do not post any new renders, treat these as my finals.

anim8or render.  Background blur and leaves near the camera are intended to give depth perception.

smoke is photoshopped.

Wow... I like all three caterpillars so far!  

Simon: Your finished caterpillar has really good form... It has a really nice cartoon-ish result overall.  And the hand came out really well considering you expressed a struggle with such things.

Indian8or: I really like your overall composition, the scene decor is really well arranged.  I especially like how the plants came out. as for the caterpillar himself, the face is escecially full of character.

 
I've begun working with the bones of my jabberwocky, though still some body-modeling to work. I wanted to go ahead and make sure the proportioning came out right with the neck... it turned out to be too thick from front to back... and OMG, it took 16 bones to make it bend in any sense of decent curving! Anyway, here's a test render just to see how the neck looks when pushing it's arc-ability...

Back to finishing up the body now...

One thing I've built into the skeleton is johnar's use of the "spring bones" from his walking tutorial, though instead of walking, the jabberwocky will be "whiffling" through the woods... floating up and down as he hovers through the trees.  

I think the biggest challenge by far is going to be making his wings work out well.

This thing's turning out to be more fun than I thought as I envision what I want it to do.

I feel quite ashamed posting my "progress" after those great caterpillars and the jabberwocky... Have to say I feel very disappointed: I looked for the easiest character and Iīm not able to finish it!  :'( Iīm blocked with the wings, totally uncapable of making something like feathers...

Well, I have a few days left until the challenge ends... Iīll try my best, although my best is very poor  ;D

Seriously guys, you are real artists!
