Alex Gator running in the City (Post 3d rendering test in photoshop)

More 3D fun 😀

I use Carrara for my 3d modeling needs but I have a issue with the toon shader that comes with it.. its horrible. So as a test I quickly set up a city scene in Sketchup using third party models. Posed my gator running in Cararra, went into Photoshop, combined the images, and created my own Toon shading effect using multiple filters. I also tried a FOV look to the render.

For the Alex and Cruz project,I’m actually going to make my own buildings from scratch using Sketchup . Since 3D warehouse’s TOS is as clear as mud, I’m too afraid to use any of the models available there for commercial purposes.  I’m OK with using here since it’s just a simple test. Awhile back I made my own models as a ref for a oriental style cityscape I painted and it worked very well.

Tools Used: Carrara, Sketchup. Buildings from 3D Warehouse

Alex the Alligator 3D Model WIP

I try to tackle too many things at once. Here is Alex, he is a gator that has hair!!!! (there is a reason for this in the story :D) He is the co protagonist for ‘Alex and Cruz”. The tail need to be finished hand have those bumps on them that crocs and gators have. His shirt design needs to be more elaborate. And he needs his scales painted an so forth.

Since I used parts from other the other models I made, I spent about 2 hours on him.

Daily Digital Doodle 6-23 – Sad Gator

sad gator tears

I going to go back to doing a daily digital doodle. Most likely I will using a reference or analog but sometimes I will draw random stuff. Like this. A sad anthropomorphic alligator. granted this is more of a sketch then a doodle. There is some issues with this painting. If you have any suggestions, feel free to give them. Unlike a gator, I wont bite. the upper torso feels like it has form. The lower body feels a little flat to me for some reason. The pant folds are great but I was too sloppy with the shirt.  Time spent, a hour and a half (or less, I cant remember.) Photoshop.
