@thecolclough, I'm just now realizing that there ie no mirror in your picture and that the words are actually being pinned up. Definitely come a long way since the first one in terms of visibility and legibility. I don't really see the sparkles as a problem and sorta thought they were a feature. Though this coming from the girl with a rainbow in her pic.

@davdud101 Thanks, what can I say: I started this claiming I'd go full out cute, so I deliver maximum cuteness!

Aww, well I hope things turn out ok for  your busy-ness.

@Steve, that plays a bit into why I really wanted to pull the aspects of my design from the tutorials of your legacy. Because I remember actually going through both the robin and shark tutorial as a kid and finding myself impressed that I could recreate the images of your tutorials virtually identically! Since they were so significant to my growth as a 3D modeler, I honor the memory by bringing the to the focus of my splash.

My entree for the Anim8or v1 splash screen challenge.

As you know my forte is making cutesy things, and Anim8or has graced me with countless joyful moments being able to really flesh out that art direction. Naturally when Steve said "Show off what you do best in Anim8or" I went all out to make the cutest image I could imagine that captured what I feel is the Anim8or spirit of fun and easy going 3D modeling. I even included Anim8or's 2 recurring characters, Robin (from the main page of the website) and Shark (whom has appeared in all of the Anim8or splash screens that I an remember). As a bonus, the use of bluish green for the grass and purple for the walls references the green and purple blobs from the old splash screen!

@thecolclough It's a lot better, though is the "NIM" yellow on purpose?  I think it might be easier to read if it were just as red as the other characters.

@davdud101, Thanks, and yea I'm not super sure what to do about the font yet, but I picked the one in the pic because it looked usable for a cute fantasy, which is what the rest of the image is framing.

@ENSONIQ5, Aww thanks, the trick of the trade is to act out the poses before making them so as to get a feeling of the *weightyness* and balance of the poses to inform how they should be drawn on the screen.

@thecolclough I like your suggestion it looks nice, you'll see it updated in my next wip post.

You probably noticed that up to this point, I've just been doing screenshots and not renders, well I came up with a configuration that keeps the solo pose Robin originally had, and *Tetrises* Shark into the frame nicely, so now I'm getting things started for rendering purposes.

I really like the way that their tails collectively create a swooping curve.

I am picturing a background with lots of plants so as to make the pallet of the characters present stand out nicely. The Anim8or logo will probably go in the top right.

I like the dynamic in this pose because one could read into it some layers of depth if they wanted to (i.e. the models we make with anim8or can feel dear to us, or at least I often feel that way) , but it also is just visually pretty to look at.

@davdud101 , heheh well you know how it is, T-pose should look stiff for the sake of ease of rigging. Fun fact, I did use Steve's shark tutorial for her.

Edit---
Wip of my take on the logo, thoughts?

Added logo to composition.

Well, what I do to sell the idea of clothing is to make it all wrinkly, notice the wrinkles in Sharkie's sleaves and shorts

I usually do this by cuttinig new edges around some edge then extruding the origin edge out a bit.

At long last, I finished rigging Sharkie! I must say that I'm pretty happy with the result, this was my first time trying to put together an anthro character. What do y'all think of her? I can't wait to come up with an image with her and Robin together.

@davdud101  If I'm not mistaken, I feel like each of us are trying to play to our individual strengths, so whatever is comfortable for you.

@thecolclough, Your's is real chic, makes me think of the 20 century fox logo.

Hopefully I'll animate with this model on Youtube soon enough, probably after I'm done with the splash screen contest.

Another update on the little Sharkie. I know I said I might try to use her hair and outfit to reference the green and purple things in the old screen, but my understanding of color theory suggests sticking with the primary pallet of Red Blue Yellow, much like Robin herself, will make them visually look more aesthetically pleasing together.

Well, now that I know y'all like her, I have to try to come up with a composition that includes her in my entree.

@davdud101, I actually wasn't finished with the feet, in this image I made the feet as well as facial details.

Spent the last 2 days working on my take on the anim8or shark.

I am playing the idea of having that green stringy thing represented as a cute hair style. I might want to try to manifest the purple blob thing as a pattern on an possible outfit for her.

I like how we are all doing things that are completely different.
