Argh! im jealous of all the work everyone is already putting up:)

im a bit stretched atm to get to work on this but i finished a previous comp entered another one so as soon as i wrap up the comicon challenge i will be in this, crunchen out concepts and some killer models ASAP

Yeh, 4 months is plenty of time, even for beginners! That means there's no excuse for not finishing!

It's always been about the quality of the work rather than finishing in a shorter deadline, so I'm hoping to see some really cool stuff.

Ok so im not dead, i have actually been working i sorta got into a creative slump after doing the comicon challenge at gameartisans, but i have some concepts now and hopefully will be able to crunch out some decent work.

This is Just some early head sketches:

Good to see u kicking in some concepts love the look of your designs keep it up. I like the first set alot but then again the all look awesome.

It looks like your planning on making 2 characters as a team if not correct?

_CAD_'s picture

Nah, Smoke and mirror are a duo but i just couldnt be stuffed putting the last two on individual sheets :)it was late and i was tired :).

as a side note Your comicon entry looked sweet in the end as well man good stuff

hehe i just keep saying it "WOW" everytime you post a pic =)

are you going for a mauri look or just a general tat on the face........ oh and by the way theres a big seam lol =)

hey CAD thats some top notch sculpting you have there. Im a mud box person myself, havent had time to learn Zbrush, and mudbox was closer to the traditional 3d programs that I know.

Anyway thats enough of a tangent. Love your stuff, can't wait to see this guy textured up. Looking forward to the money shot.

Thanx Kookie

yea i started in mudbox when i first started sculpting a while ago. tried Zbrush (failed the first time :) then came back to it and worked out the crappy shortcuts and stuff and sorta just got used to it, im planning on trying out the new mudbox 'pparently its supposed to be good so ill have to give it a look gotta try and make sure i can use both.

_CAD_'s picture

Thanx kit

lol stupid seam. yea i dont know wat i was going for with that tat, i just sorta threw it on it killed some time, this entire texture i will be getting rid of anyway, ill hopefully revisit the tattoo but we'll see as we go

Update 9

ok so unwrapped and texturing and its taking me a while i originnally did one pass but my heart wasnt in it so it looked like shit, so i left it for a weekend played force unleashed and came back with a fresh head and this is where im at. still got a lot to do i know there are seams in areas but i will get to painting them out a little later. ive also got to model his weapon and texture it but i will get to that (and the calling card) after ive got the bulk of him done.

as usual C&C is always helpful
