Maxforums Tournament 6- Round 3- K-tonne
show user profile  K-tonne
I'm in and ahead of myself
but i save an iteration after each session- which is at the end of the day really so it's easy to see where i was
so to catch up i'll just post what i have so far

day one: basic proportions and masses

day two: bit more detaill and start on the background sculpting

day tree: bit more detailing

day four: final detailing and some texturing

very rough final mockup: not going to stay exactly like this but close i guess

i think i'm going to put some mole heads around the sides of the text and main picture- not made my mind up yet if they're just going to be different views of the mole's head with characters from the blurbs names or charactures of the actors wearing very poor mole makeup yet
crits/ ideas etc welcomed

oh- mole geom made from zspheres and the bg from a plane- made from ref of 'naked mole rat' if you google it it's on the front page

Cool, except the pun in the title doesn't really work.

How about "The mole ... in a hole"

the smaller pics of moles are just the ones from day fours render distorted in photoshop, but i'll make a couple of different morphs of the main sculpt and see if i can get some differing characteristics for them- maybe just add hats who knows
also i should chanage prines of darkness to prince of darkness
thanks joey- they've all confirmed so you'll get an invite to the cannes preview

The text "the mole" on the cave wall is dark enough to be unreadable, it needs more contrast or something.

thanks matty, i'll brighten the title text up a bit for the next one
cheers superclutz, i didn't know if i could get the skin folds to look ok myself- kinda why i did it, get out of comfort zones and all
thank you mr g, i'm not really sure the bg is cutting it either, i'll have another stab at it tonight
thanks all, every little helps

I'm not crazy about the black background.
Maybe add a subtle dirt texture to it like attached but faded back.
Leave the red outlines and the black inside the circles.
My 2 pesos.

I don't think the central image red outline works.

The mole rat looks kind of fossilized, but I looked it up and they do look like that.

Ugly wee beasties.

Great job on the modelling.
