Projects and Renders
« on: August 03, 2010, 05:10:00 pm »

Hello guys, I've been meaning to show you guys what I have been able to make so far in anim8or. I love the darn program so much I find whatever reason to plug it into my school projects  :D

Here are some of my latest projects.

First one is the Sea Duck from the Disney Afternoon Cartoon "Talespin". This model is currently being remodelled and textured so that I may accommodate a seamless interior. The second and third is one of my characters which I modelled, rigged in Anim8or but textured in Sculptris. Too bad I can't get the normal maps to be as pretty in anim8or as it was in Sculptris. I might repaint the diffuse map to include the folds. The last image is the base image I'm using as a submission for my school's art publication. That is actually why I made a 3D model of my character.

Feedback and comments are appreciated.  ;D

Will post more soon.

wow dude just wow...

great stuff.

the only thing that bothered me was in your tailspin plane (great cartoon btw) is how sharp the tip of it is. it might be true to your references and im pretty sure its a boat plane thing, but it just doesnt look right 2 me.

great stuff man. keep posting more renders.

oh another thing i think you should change on your cat. instead of having drawn lines for the hair, actually model that. i think it will look alot better

Amazing work buddy.  Are you planning to animate your characters?   

In the last render, I can see some grass.  How did you do that?

Thanks for the comments guys  :)

@rellik: Yes, now that you mention it, it does seem a bit off. As for the cat though, I've been getting that comment a lot. Originally though he's not supposed to have hair and that should just be the markings on his head. Perhaps I should make it blend a little more some how rather than have solid lines?

@Indian8or: They're actually just layers of polygons with a diffuse and alpha texture  of grass. I just copied it and changed the angles a bit to show some depth and make it look like there's a lot more grass than just one picture. And yes I am planning to animate them. (Almost spelled that with an 8 in it XD )

Edit: I just remembered I made a walk cycle of the model I used for the Simple Machines challenge. This walk cycle was done for a presentation in my class called "Introduction to Animation". My group was to report on the silent era and animation toys. So I went ahead and built a Praxinoscope in Anim8or and used the walk cycle for the animation reflected in the mirrors. quite fun and I like how it turned out too. Although when I uploaded it to photobucket the video gets choppy for some reason. One of these days I'm getting a youtube/Vimeo account. ._.

Anyway here it is:

Hello again. I've started out some new projects. Actually it stemmed off from a project in school. I'll upload the sketch of the character once my scanner feels like scanning it.  :-\

Anywho the character is a child from some tribal community in a medieval-ish sort of world. I'm redoing the model I made from my project to try and add more detail.

The first two images are renders from the original model. I wasn't quite happy with the topology in that one and the hair could definitely use some working (He's balding in some spots lol). This was his original design.

Eventually I changed his design to look a little more tribal like. So I got rid of the T-shirt, hence why I know need to put detail to his upper torso.The last image are screens from the project file. The render looks exactly the same so I didn't bother rendering it XD

Yes he is. (Now that you mention it, to a degree it does sound strange.)

LOL I'm currently working on his new hair and outfit so he will be clothed soon.

Thanks. The hair was a bunch of polygons with a alpha map on it. Then copy pasted multiple times. This method is limited since some parts wound up looking like hair was missing. This works better if you just have a segment to put hair on. I actually borrowed the polygons from a previous model to save time. I guess I might as well show it although I'm not fixing it up anymore.

Here's a link to my first attempt at using that kind of hair. Although there's not much hair to see in the first place: http://phoax.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d1pxakg

Update: I just reworked the hair and texture. I like the way it came out this time although it could still use some work. It's basically a copy of the mesh of the top of the head with an alpha map painted using Sculptris.

Update: I finished the scene I was making for that character. Attached below is him playing a local game.

Ok I think I'm gotta stop triple posting unless I finish an animation or something. Feels weird.
