Default Cartoon Mike :)

Hi, guys.

I've entered the cgtalk.com challenge this month, and I thought I'd post my wip to get some more suggestions here. It's a cartoon version of me.

Sorry for not joining the monthly event here. Hopefully, if I get some time, maybe I can give one (or both gah!) of the SM events a whack.

Anyway, here's concept:



I've got the head pretty fleshed out:



I'm working on the body now:



Looking forward to your suggestions!

Hey, thanks, guys. The skin shader I'm using is so simple, it's not even funny. lol Well, maybe it is funny...

I've attached it to this post if you'd like to check it out.

You really think it looks '70s? Strange... considering I wasn't alive in the 70s. lol Thanks, though.

Sure, no problem.

Here it is before and after smoothing. I'm in the process of making the shirt not so tight, so the right side is tighter than the left at the moment.
