    Talking Skin, BPR and whiskers...(my Sketchbook)

    Hello everyone.

    Here is a WIP of some testing with skin tones, BPR render settings and the awesome FiberMesh. Still working on the eyes and eyebrows (and the endless tweaks here and there). Cannot wait to be able to save my settings, as writing down what works in FiberMesh is cumbersome.

    Anyway, comments/crits welcome.

    Enjoy...

    Thank you Promethias!

    Here's an update...the same character in a scene. It is entitled: "A Game of Stones". Rendered with BPR (of course). Hope you enjoy!

    Luv these characters of yours.....Nice lighting, composition and render experiments also.

    Maybe some foot prints/impressions in that soft looking sand leading up to them...Might add to the story of where they came from..adds a sense of time, like they just walked from somewhere way far away in back of them..Just a passing thought on my part as i'm enjoying your work this morning..

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work, and test experiments...

    I really like this! The toenails could probably use another subdivision level or two to smooth them out and I'd like to see a shot directly facing your creature's face, but otherwise it looks great! Is that a gel shader for the eyes? I'm a big fan of those shaders for unnatural looking eyes. I think it's way underused. Anyway good job!

    Love the charicatures for sure and am always in to a joke but I got to tell you that I really hope the presidential one does NOT come true.
    Another four years of this innefective, business killing moron OBOSO and we might as well all pack up and move to Russia or China.
    Sorry if this offends anybody but seriously people this guy is a total loser and has done nothing in his presidency except divide the nation.
    Go Romney!!!!!
