The Duuuuuuurty Dingy

Arrrrrrggghhh..... Tis the Duuurty Dingy. I finally got around to rendering turns and comping the Occlusion and Color passes together. The mast will only be visible when needed for story telling purposes. Otherwise it will be gone to provide a larger acting area. The boat will be just big enough for my two characters. I am rigging it to beable to deform like a hand-drawn cartoon. Lots of squash and stretch ....... exaggerated posing. Tell me what yous alls think! I am still finishing up Clumbert... If all goes as planned I should beable to post his model by Tuesday.

The "Duuuuurty Dingy" and "Clumbert"

Hello All,
Well i figured I should post some sketches of the next two models that I will be posting. The "Dirty Dingy", is the ship that Cecil and his brother Reg attempt to conquer the high seas in. Clumbert is a pesky seagull that always seems to prevail through every situation. I will be posting the model for the Durty Dingy tomorrow, and Clumbert on Saturday. As with the characters the modeling and design process has been back and forth. Once I am happy with a model, I seem to start drawing and create something a little different that appeals to me more. The durty dingy was finished a week ago... until i started drawing yesterday. Oh well, it is a fun process and makes for a better end product.
