    Default Scared Silly Entry by Jon Cooper

    Greetings All

    Longtime reader, first time poster
    Massively impressed with the quality going on here, some really talented people out there.
    My concept: Pretty simple really, whilst out Trick or Treating, poor unsuspecting child dressed as a ghost encounters...some real ghosts. Drops sweets, looks scared...ummm...silly and thats the basis of it really. Hope you like it, more to follow soon.

    Nice! I like the glow you got there! Was that done in ZB?

    Thanks, and yes all done in Zbrush, yeah. Using two layers and transparency, plus a bit of smearing.

    Nice work so far, Jon. I don't envy the late start you've gotten. As a suggestion for the ghost material (may not be to your liking, but give it a try): In the material modifiers for most materials is a slider called High Dynamic Range. This can give you a very bright effect (I've used it for lightbulbs). This might help somewhat.

    I'll check back and see if it was any good for you. Nice concept, hope to see it finished.

    The fog and lighting effects look good. It gives that real eerie feeling like something really bad is about to happen.

    Default Sillier

    I like your concept, and your modeling. To make it sillier, make sure that the kids face, is really over the top, with a big mouth, and funny scared eyes. Good luck!

    Thanks for the replies


    Blaine, yeah Im interested to see how im going to handle them too

    Beginning to wish that I hadnt chosen ghosts, can barely draw cloth let alone model it! Still, all good learning

    Some updates, need to add afair bit of detail yet, but reasonably happy with expression....for now
