What do you get when you cross an orca, the Blender logo and a dragon?
The sea is there mostly to hide the fact that I still need to design the body. I’m still trying to decide whether I want it to be more of a sea serpent or a dragon, whether or not it will have wings, etc. The concept was created expressly for the 2.43 splash screen contest. Any crits?
I really like that, actually. It’s really cool, though your picture, and the water especially, could benefit from an angmap. Just slap a nice sky in there, even just as a reflection map on the water, and the picture’ll be pretty much complete. Actually, one tiny modelling thing. The head-tentacles look almost too subsurfaced, try and make them a little a little pointy. Not a lot, cause it shouldn’t look knife-like, but just have a little more definition to make it look more detailed and natural.
I really like this! Simple yet effective. I must admit though… It doesn’t look like a very natural creature. I don’t know if you’re going for that, but… it’s good anyway:yes:. Also, I agree with BlackBoe, the tentacles should be a bit more pointy.
Sorry, just a crazy Sonicfan on the loose with a couple of models lying around that have no current purpose. It was meant to be a “mascot-y” type thing, seeing as I designed the concept and built the whole thing during the approx. 15-day period between when I saw the Blendernation article about the 2.43 splash screen contest and the end of said contest. (minus the time wasted on a different entry idea I quickly scrapped after the first few days of work) The only difference between my entry and this picture is the larger size, and the awesome new defocus node. :evilgrin:
It looks like a yellow version of a killer whale. (The little patch on his temple!) But it’s good! I was just expecting something a little more…oh, what’s the word? …dramatic!
Hey, any more takers on my forum? VA FORUMS. You can post your artwork on there. It’s basically a forum for visual artists, and it’s got a blender section too. Already I’ve attracted two people. I’d love if you could join!
