>>I promise no more posts for a while

Don't make us break your legs with sticks in order to have to go back on that promise Howard!

More is genuinely more where your stuff is concerned.

I always love to hear something like that. That´s the motivation and the "love", that makes great projects even greater.

first render of the cappin' How can I make him look more captain like? some sort of emblem or medals
Define his mimic. Look at your drawing and then compare it to your model. Take a close look at the lips - the drawing shows very hard, angular lips - the 3d model has very soft ones.

With such "low detailled" characters you have to take on clichés - So, try to make him as hard and excentric as possible to meet viewers expectations.

Hey, no C&C yet: looks great, I really like it and hope you keep it up!

Actually you could.

You would feel compelled to practice thus enhancing your drawing skills. Howard has been drawing almost all his life, he has a loose hand now, you just have to loosen yours*.

*And stop using it that much for "that other stuff".

That is cool howard. I would give my left nut to be able to draw and implement my drawings like that.

whhhhooooooooah thanx for all the awesome support!!

I like the idea of a captains hat on the cappins eyestalk! thanks!

Thomas Mahler - I looked back at my drawing... and you are so right, i lost the mouth shape maybe I can fix it with a morph target....err blend shape?


and DrKnow, I seriously considered trading you my drawing ability for your left nut....I could use one... you see, my wife took mine when we were married. she keeps them on a platter and whenever I look/think about another woman they begin to hum and alert her of my "naughtyness". she told me ever marrige works that way, this isnt true?
