Mudbox Elf

*Update*

I rendered this in Renderman (3Delight) and I was very impressed with the quality of this renderer! I posted it below to compare the two.



Rendered with Renderman (3Delight)

I just picked up Mudbox and started learning it for the first time. This is what I came up with after an hour. Everybody has a subject they obsess over when drawing or sculpting. For some it's cars, for others it's horses. For me, it's elves. I'm already loving this program! Let's see if I can make something really nice with it some time soon...

Long John Silver

*Update*

Who am I kidding? The clothing looks like $&*#. I'll definitely have to tweak it up some more, as soon as I get all these updates to my comp working properly. :D

*Update*

For those of you interested, I posted a turntable video of the model below. :)

I'll just call it done for now. There's more I should be adding to my portfolio, and of course the more you look at your work, the more you'll want to keep adding to it. So here he is - Long John Silver from "Treasure Planet", done in subdivision surfaces in Maya. Overall I like it. I'll probably tweak it when my mind bounces back to it, but I'll just show these rendered images for now. Enjoy!

Long John Silver - Nearly Done...

*Update*

Did a test render, so far I'm liking it...



*Update*

Going to see a movie tonight, and I had to help take care of some sick relatives, so didn't get to do much on the modeling today. Blah. Thought I'd post this just to show I'm *almost* done...



Still needs nips and tucks on his clothing, his coat and his left arm really needs some fixing. Almost there, though. I'm getting excited...
