Hey this is going to be an avatar that represents me. I’m sure most of you have seen the trailer for the upcoming james cameron movie. if not youtube it, the special effects look nasty. I’m really happy with how the materials look in this so far, and hopefully the rest will fall into place quite simply.
update…now he has eyes! i used the blender noob to pro pixar eye tutorial and it looks great.
another shot, with ambient occlusion turned on with a jungle texture, as well as tweaked lighting.
omg that trailer looks like the shizznit.
But it looks pretty much exactly like Battle for Terra.
test shot, modeling texturing and posing not done yet. mostly for lighting and materials.
Are you going to add a facial rig on him? No offense, but it’s a rather bland expression going there.
no offense taken, i totally agree 100 percent. im def gonna add an expression to him. here is an update. im trying to model an avatar in my likeness, to make it my own avatar. i think its a pretty cool idea, like a alien self portrait.
pretty sure if you change the order of your modifier stack it should get rid of the seam going down the middle of his face, looks amazing so far
This looks so great, you are very talented, your normal map is nice, or is that just the AO? The movie looks cool too, I was thinking of seeing it but it doesn’t look like it will be super good.
Such an excellent idea, and it looks really nice. My avatar is based on an upcoming James Cameron film too. Thanks for showing your work. It’s great to see the progression.
thanks again! its actually a normal map with AO, i used clouds as a bump with cloud size very very small. used that combined with a blue SSS and it got a nice effect.
Been waiting for this movie for the last 2 months.
adding body for modeling reel. thinking about sculpting all the folds in shirt and pants to fit pose.
Ok some criticism. The ears seems to be a bit high. The patterns he has got on his skin makes it look like he has a beard. If it is suppose to be a beard. I don’t think it really fits with the alien skin.
The body looks poor, the muscles on his belly looks off. And the arm looks like it belong to jabba the hutt. In the trailer, the avatars looked like musclear monkeys. Bruce lee style. The arms looks a bit short, especially on a monkey they are extra long. Looks like the legs belongs to a retired old man that collects muschrooms in the forest.
I suggest you fix the small “weirdies” on his face. Remake the entire body following this reference.
I like it, you really got the avatar look on that face. :rolleyes:
have spent hours tonight tweaking the lighting materials and texture til i came up with this. the clothing and arms still need work, and he needs teeth, but i am really happy with the way it looks so far.
