Gah this sickness is lasting longer then I expected, been to the hospital and got myself a boat load of pills to take for the next fortnight.
In the mean time I’m working on the different projects and did a little more work on Fiona (yeah its been a while). I’ve got the fur technique working about 75% of the way in cycles but I still have to fix the lighting issues I’m getting across the fur. For now I animated the head and did a quick head twist test in blender render. The renders only 25% of the original size, so much of the details been lost, but it took several hours to render so it was the best I can manage at present.
Gah what a couple of weeks, the weather has plummeted and I’m bouncing from well to sick to somewhere in between. I had plans on streaming models and such but its just not been in the cards. I hope to get some time to recover in the next few days and get back into the modelling. In the mean time here is the wip of Cookie and Brann.
I’m not too happy with the cutie marks yet so I might rework them a bit to try and make them fit into the model better. Also Cookies freckles, I didn’t just make them solid colour like in the comic, so again more tweaking needed.
Any hopefully Ill be better soon and back to a more regular modelling schedule.
Since Youtube seems to just autoplay all my videos at once, I’ve switched most of them to links instead. The videos are still available to watch on the youtube site. Once its resolved I’ll return them to view here.
Here is a 3 stage model I did of a female mountain gorilla, it was meant to be its own thing, but I had a rough Saturday where I lost 3 hours work due to a laptop crash during rigging some work, so I had to vent some anger on something creative. So here is a 3 stage design of a gorilla head. About 3/4 hours work.
Well its been a solid week of training, and my back is killing me. But at least I got to clear some cobwebs from my mind on some tricks so it was worth it.
In other news I’m putting a poll up for making the next OC gift pony. Poll will last a week and the winner gets first dibs on being built. (most will get built but the winner is first). If it goes well I might even try it in my older less toony style. And if its REALLY good day Ill stream it too.
Well that short period turned into a longer one, I have been working my socks off in my new job and the time when I’m not working is mainly either sightseeing or socializing with the neighbours. The weather is fantastic and I’m absorbing as much of the culture as I can.
In the few days I’m not working however I have been itching to get a model done or two. Although I had hoped to have done something with Blender Cookie I haven’t had a chance to talk to them further on the subject so I instead I settled on some simple remakes of more OC ponies.
