    This reminds me of the character Dr Nefario from Despicable me.

    Except that your model has a bit more aura of mystery with the glasses.

    What you come as a progression should be interesting.

    I can see what you mean about him looking like Dr nefario. I'm actually doing a revision on the overall design, I like the characters facial proportions but i don't like the overall look and feel. Posting more soon.

    Cool idea and love his glasses. If I have to be completely honest, I think the lighting with SSS effect on the ears is the best. It's a bit dark so if you can brighten it up a bit and it'd be a solid piece. Mostly because it reveals a nice depth that I feel got lost in the last one - you can also re-position the light to get the depth back - it would work too I think. That's just my thought.

    Hello, sorry for the late reply. I do love the SSS on the ears and the overall look.(darker image)
    i'll try brightening it up and do some more compositing .

    Thank you for the feedback.
    cheers

    this a cool design! I prefer the second composition. I would add more colour to the lips, cheeks and nose, and a bit of spec on the lips, nose and brow and he will really pop!

    how about some eyebrows?



  12. #12
    I love the overall shape of the character and his design. Your color choice flows well, also. However, it looks a little odd seeing a fraction of his left eyeball (stage right). The second picture rectified this, as the dark color implied the glasses were intended to be opaque. The reflections, however, look strange. I'm not entirely sure how else to put it. Perhaps consider either a reflection map to reflect something more cogent to the character's surroundings, or reposition/add lighting shaped like lightsources that would be found in his environment.
