Thanks for all the kind words everyone! I really appreciate the feedback
haha that rocks! coolest penguin ive ever seen… tell that linux penguin to shuv off =)
guns, give it guns! then we’ll see how cute it is dm
I’ll tell you something funny, the design for this guy evolved from a t-shirt design I did for some guy who wanted a linux t-shirt about… well 6 years ago I think. I didn’t like Larry Ewings penguin at all so I drew one that looked cooler to me. Anyway when I needed a design for a penguin character I just took the one I drew for the t-shirt. Originally his head was a lot shorter and over time it just kind of… grew.
And he will be given a gun as soon as I get free time to model it (He’s a private investigator, so he needs a gun! The characters name is ‘Pez Trinket’ BTW. Stupid name I know.)
The eyes are just empty blackness…would be more alive if you gave it the normal eye parts.
I think this would look really funny given the oblong nature of the eyes. I never thought of it, but your not the first to comment on it. I will have to keep that in mind and see if it still looks like that when hes animated. Thanks for constructive criticism.
Anyways, GET A NEW COMPUTER! It’s a pain in neck to even model it if you say that it takes forever to pose him! gives him some $$$ Here ya go, off to shop!
Would you believe that it’s a lot faster modelling him than posing him? he’s only a mid range density subsurf cage. The skeletal system has what seems to be well over 80 bones and a good chunk of those are constraint driven.
