Ok, for what ever purpose I have decided to make Pikachu. I guess I want a reason to make lighting :evilgrin:.
So… after a quick start here it is. Note: I’m still very very early in all this (like first five minutes) so expect the very worst. http://uploader.polorix.net//files/37/pika.jpgBlend file to come.

Wow, pretty good so far!

Except the screenshot has some odd green zone at the bottom, at least on my monitor:confused:

Did you trace it with a curve, or box model?

I used sculpt mode and edit mode on a mesh no curves.
Are you using a lcd monitor? If not try degaussing it.
I blurred the task bar.

no I wasn’t, but if I was I wouldn’t tell you. I was talking to some one on aim and didn’t want his name sent to the world with out him knowing.

here is the latest. I’m going slowly because I’m double tasking and that slows me a ton.
What slows me:

But not change the sub, heres pika. Note: I closed the chat for this pic.http://uploader.polorix.net//files/37/pika2.jpgAs for Vista; it’s not as bad as you think, but I am running Ubuntu on other computers and I like it just as much as I like Vista. It just can’t run some programs that windows can and wine doesn’t fix everything.
That’s all for tonight.

Instead of declaring stupid stuff like that, try at least leaving behind a comment related to the work. Vista runs fine, get over it.

Nice face model amoose136, your teeth modeling is top notch, and I think it has a lot of potential. As for the Pikachu thing, I’m surprised you arn’t modeling it mirrored. Oh, and please show more of the face as you continue it. Be sure to post wires.

hmm… while in photoshop(or what ever else) why not cut/crop the image instead of bluring?!! (and yes DRM su**s, not that id care, tho… :p)
and can we see some wires?

My plan is to make the mesh quickly then retopo it so it looks good and is easy to animate. I haven’t worked on blender stuff yet today but here is last nights photo with a wire frame mess. http://uploader.polorix.net//files/37/pika3.jpgHere is the .blend: http://uploader.polorix.net//files/37/pika.blend
Here is the back ground that goes with the blend.

Oh and by the way I use the gimp instead of photoshop because I’m cheap. And I blurred it because I don’t like odd resolutions and I think it looks better that way, not that I really need a task bar in the picture. Lol, this has stretched out to far for what it is. I’ll probably work on it some more later tonight.

In the model, the mouth is a mesh. I have modeled the tail and I think I’m ready to use a new background image.

Modeling a 3d model is easier there’s just not many straight on photos.
I don’t need to blur the task bar because I don’t keep chats open for two days.

Yay Pikachu!!! The greatest thing to happen to the world since triangles were given a third corner!

Anyway, looks cool, but your Pikachu looks concave while the real one looks convex. And maybe change the yellow because it looks a bit green…

ouch, quite ugly poles you got there on the cheeks, but as long as it will animate ok, its not a problem… :confused:

I intend to UV map the cheeks in the end. I only had them like that so I could make a quick material to see how they fit in. Like I said, I intend to make it make the model quick then retopo it so it has a nice topology.

Ok, I haven’t been able to work on blender much for a long time because of school and I had over 13 projects going at once that were this big or bigger. But… school is over now YAY! :D:D:D , and I have been able to finish some of the projects. The work continues.
