Character 3: Baneshrae by JessicaDru Character 3: Baneshrae by JessicaDru
Character Creature Model - HW #3
Modeling Time Frame: 1 week
Teacher: Alex Alvarez
Program: ZBrush and Maya

download to get a .mov turn-table!

I'll be posting a textured version of this character next week. I hope! I couldn't get my normals to work properly this time around, so i pulled a render from ZBrush. More on that when i've had time to trouble shoot O_O!
I still need to sculpt the rug and the fox-tails, but i plan on doing a bit with maya's fur, or a similar program.

The original design is by the praise-worthy and amazing Ariokh:

i worked my ass off in art school and the guy who owns my school gave me a shining recommendation. bliz set me up for an interview before i graduated and my interview went well. I had prepared some hard surface pieces and did an art test for the position to prove my skills. In my portfolio I included a bunch of traditional art... which helps ^_^
So i landed the gig and things have been wonderful ever since. i love my job and my team!!

wow that is so sweet. I would love to get a nice gig like that. See i went back to school a year ago to get me the fancy diploma as well as to maybe add something to my art that most people haven't added just yet. So we will see, I am in the final year as of now. How would I apply to them? Is there something on their website to submit portfolios? Problem is, I am in Canada, and I don't believe they have any Canadian locations. It would be worth the move though after school. That is so awesome for you to find a good crew and a sweet gig with Bliz. Your 3d stuff is really amazing stuff too.

The eyes really impressed me with their realness.

In other news, what does camping out for twelve hours to get Obama tickets get you? Nothing (but a nice sunburn)! >_< ;_;

BTW, know you're busy, did you get that one email?

i spent the most time on his face, and have already gone through a number of edits. how close to the original concept do you think he is?

oooo this guy is awesome! Now, do it again, Low Poly, and skinned for videogame use! *whip crack* YOU HAVE FIVE SECONDS TO COMPLETE IT! ;)

What went wrong with the normals?
Reply
:iconjessicadru:
JessicaDru Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
oh snap!
he can be very low poly ... my mesh isn't too killer.

the normals aren't showing up in maya, at all. usualyl you can render with normals in mental ray, but instead of my blin showing the normals, it errors out and renders as a lambert. i am going to reconstruct my scene and figure it out.
