This is an image I’ve been working on for a while. The background cabin and surrounding trees were bought from Turbo Squid. Problem has been the textures are not Blender optimized so it chews up CPU cycles during the render. It’s good enough for now- may come back to it later for tweaking.
Here are two walk tests trying out two different rigs. Pretty much settled on Auto-rig (the fox chibi).
Thought I’d tackle a digi-grade character and see how it turned out. Fair pleased with this guy, but still have some touch up work to do. He’s fully rigged so I’ll be doing some animation soon.
Here is a work in progress image. Just finished up the rigging so I will be posting some complete images soon.
For those interesting in the technical aspects of this image, here’s a screenshot with all the assets visible.
I’m working on a couple of new images featuring JF. This one had some interesting challenges. The character wasn’t too much of a problem, but the snow spray took me a while. The snow is from a series of particle emitters using a small white globe as the base, the snow fog is smoke with spot lights shining on it to brighten it up. Overall took about 8 hours to render.
JF Chill Fox is completed- rigged and furred. Below is a pose I finished. Not everything is right with this character, I learned a lot during his creation and some things are just not right like the texturing and the eyelids. He is posable though and I plan to set him in some environments. Also, I’m starting to work on a buddy for him- an arctic wolf.
I managed to fix all the issues with the teeth and now moved on to adding fur. Here is the results so far, still have some tweaking to do on the fur. Next up is adding the rig and working on the expressions.
Working on arctic foxy’s teeth. Unfortunately I haven’t found any really good tutorials on how to create animal jaw sets so I’m playing around with creating from scratch in Zbrush. This is what is have so far:
