Here's a work in progress on my chef model

Wednesday, May 19, 2010


It's been a while since I've posted anything, but I've kept choogling on my thesis. The paper is essentially done. My chair okayed it and my editor is signing off on it shortly, so that's one major portion of thesis done. All that's left is that pesky little film.

I've finished laying out UVs on the tourist and modeled the sous-chef and laid out his UVs. I'm currently modeling the chef, now.

Here's some pictures.

Fortunately (unfortunately for my thesis) I'm starting work at Fisher-Price next week, so that's gonna slow down production on this a little bit, but oh well.

texture test

So here's a test I did with just some spheres. I'm trying to get a painterly texture. I'm happy with how the outlines look, and which I use are going to depend on the mood of the character. I like how the fills look, but I don't think the method I used will work on an actual character. So I'm going to have to play around with some different ideas. Essentially, this is how I want it to look.

New tourist Model

Totally different head. I like this one much better

Here's my tourist model (not totally finalized, but enough to start rigging). Hopefully this means I can start replacing my layouts actually blocking him in.

Here's some more designs done by Mark McDonald. Some old guy pictures, but mostly his young sous chef.

new chef character design

It's been a while since I've put anything up here, but I'm actually registered for thesis this quarter, so I'll mostly be working on it. Here's a new character turnaround done by Jose Landron-Baralt. It's about 90% where I want it.
