My Crazy Characters (lots of W.I.P pictures)

is gonna deform…

Hey, did you forget what the reference pic looked like? I suggest that you keep the model as close to the original character as possible. You know, with big arms, tiny legs and little detail.

The head is the only thing that looks the same.

Now I need to crit the legs a little. I think you should define the knee cap a little bit more. I know youre not going for realsim, but the leg just looks plain wrong with that little of a knee. Nice job on the arms though.

edit: Maybe define the chest a little bit more as well.

I know, you read my mind Wiggie i just couldn’t stop modeling the way it was going.
but i will model another one just like the original sketch.

yep you’re right again, need more tweeking!!! :wink:

Are you going to do some major animating with this character? :wink: I hope so, you could totally have fun working with him in a nice cartoon-y setting! :smiley:

yes if i come up with some cool situations where i can animate it, along
with the other furry creature.
any ideas are welcome :smiley:

ok i put some basic bones on him to test the mesh deformation,
no finger bones yet…soon…
i think i might need to model some piggy toes…

Tough to say what kinds of situations to animate him in, really. :wink: He’s a caveman, so I guess a quest for fire could be a start, or hunting/gathering, maybe his first glimpse of a cave-woman. :wink: I’m not sure, though.

On a side note, I’m happy to see you survived the night. How was the weather?

thanxs JTS, well the weather is still pretty dismal, right now the hurricane
is on top of us(the Florida peninsula).

i like your idea about the cave woman and quest for fire and hunting, this might be a cool challenge %|

Definitely. I think you could have a great time coming up with animations for him. What’s his name, anyway?

took me a while but i finally put the hand bones,for now their names are Grom & Furry .

nice! I like the way he’s looking at Furry. Happy you’re still with us. :stuck_out_tongue:

i might start modeling the cave girl here’s quick sketch of what she might look like…maybe…C&C’s please :smiley:

http://img73.exs.cx/img73/8898/cave-babe.gif

She seems too pretty for a cave-woman. She should be cute but not pretty. :wink: I dunno, I think she’d be more endearing if she were cute/adorable rather than sexy. Ya know what I mean?

another concept sketch …C&C’s ?

I like that last rendering with the 2 characters together, are you sure you need to put a women in there in addition? :-?

thanx Kansas_15 the cave-girl would be like a support character, if i decide to do like a short story animation, but the main characters are Grom and Furry :smiley:

thanx Grim,

another render of Grom&Furry “Campfire Stories”

another concept sketch for would be cave-babe
although all this concept sketches would have to be modeled more in
a “toony” style…

Coming along very nicely!
