Commando Rodent Gopher - Concepts + WIP
Hi. I just got my scanner working, scanned a few drawings and then decided to make a concept of a simple character to use as a test for poly modeling to try and improve my skills. I got the idea from a friend of mine who also is here on the SM site. He is working on this as well with me since we both made the ideas for the character. Anyway here are the concept sketches and a small wip. Worked on it for a good hour or so. My friend WounderGopher should be posting here too.
we decided that farmer john rodent cant cut it so we turn him into a commando :mingun:

heres a wip, ill be working on this tonight so ill update tomm.

c&cs are much welcome =)

Looking good...

Just a thought maybe make the feet a bit bigger will add a bit more character.

small update
Adjust proportions. Made feet bigger as suggested. And yes it did give it a bit more character :) Now i gotta make hands. I was looking at rodent pics and they have small hands. Im thinking maybe I should make small hands and ditch the hands on my concept. Anyway, I fell asleep last night but now im awake. Ill try and finish modeling by the end of the day!

Ahh. I think I need to make the eyes bigger and move it a little bit closer to the nose. More like the concept. And make the bucktooth bigger. What do you guys think?

a shot of the it ok? what do you guys think?

Looks great! I like the drawings aswell :D
Are you going to rig and animate him? If so I would love to read how you go about it in this thread as i'm trying my first ever for the competition.

Im noob man..I dont know how to animate or rig. I just know how to put bones and do a smooth or rigid bind..And then im stuck there. But yes I will be animating him. Im gonna use him as the base for the animation and rigging chapters im gonna go through in the Maya4.5 Savvy Book.

update: hands are now one with the body..time to add ears...

So should i make the eyes bigger and move it closer to the nose?
Should the teeth go bigger as well?

Anyway, heres a quick render:

GREAT IDEA MAN! Can't wait to see more.

orgeeizm 08-10-2003 10:45 PM

another update. created ears, attached the nose to the head. made seams for its clothes, well part of it. the neck area and the arms area. i still have to work on the pants and other stuff.

looking cool man! but i think the feet should be like in your drawing... with seperated toes.

orgeeizm 09-10-2003 01:53 PM

small update: toes done, ears modified, and added a little tail.
now its time to work on accesories: equipment belt, watch, assault rifle, demobackpack, and nightvision goggles (maybe)...then its UV mapping time

Hey guys this is looking awesome, let me know if i can help you guys at all. You guys could model a few wiskers, as apposed to doing it with fur, which i assume is what you will do for the hair?

orgeeizm 09-10-2003 04:21 PM

That i do not know..i will be attempting to do fur so it can have dynamics...If my comp dies out, ill try some other method

He's really jolly. His hands/wrists look a little small to be touting an assault rifle though.

Zyk0tiK 09-10-2003 07:33 PM

Mmm i agree
