Is That What I Think It Is?

If you were thinking of the Lnyx Penguin and that toy from the 80's, Robie The Robot Banker, then you are correct sir!

Some modeling projects to get the year going. I hated the penguin the first time around, I hated it even more the second time. Robie not so bad the second time around. But I found out this year that I want to model for a career. 

In Russia penguin model you! 

  

Watch the penguin go round and round.

Give him quarters and he'll eat you out of house and home. Well, out of laundry money, that's for sure. 

 

I thought I would be edgy and put the camera off to the thirds instead of the center. Turns out that was a ten point deduction. Oops.

Until next project!

I Told The Witch Doctor I Was In Love With You!

And the witch doctor he told me what to do! He said Go animate a walk, jump, and a turn, walla walla bing bang!

...That, um, that didn't rhyme as well as I thought it would. Well it's a good thing I'm not a song writer. Anyway, here is the last project we had to do for the first semester. Design a simple biped polygon  character. I was inspired by African masks that I saw and deiced to make my little guy just that; an African mask with legs! I love him  very much and I named him Kuluha. Thanks much to my gal pal Brittany who helped me come up with the design of the mask and colors. I had all these ideas in my head, and they just didn't LOOK right when I actually saw it on him. She helped me simplify it. Which is funny cause the project is a SIMPLE poly. Hmm...

And as always, here's the concept sketch of what I wanted him to look like. He lost the grass skirt cause I wanted to show off his butt. =) 
                                                  

Until next project!
