Default A Ghouled Butler



I was doing a sketch study of color and came up with this little idea, and decided to finish it out in 3d.

Looks good and the concept is very cool

How are you planning on making the ghost?

Another Hour. And time for a break.

Dr. Robotnik- As far as the ghost is concerned I thought I might try a frightners approach to the visual look of it yet remain cartoony.

Good Concept. I like it. The expression reminds me of how I look when I leave for work.

Nice concept drawing man, i like the colours!

I like that you've really stuck to the concept too, really nice modelling. How come you've done a lid to the serving tray though... no ghost? Or maybe you're going to do a short animation where he lifts it to reveal the ghost?

Well, keep it up
