Hi BiG ToE,

I was thinking of putting him in a suit, maybe a fashion style pose. That way I wont really have to worry too much about background modelling and texturing. A simple wall and ground will do.

I've attached a reference I may use...what do you think? Good idea? Maybe the same type of hair aswell with a bad ass moustache!

that's a great idea. Vapms are known to be seductive.

Thanks, just gotta get round to it now.

I'm just finishing building my DIY Cintiq this weekend so hopefully this will be the first project I'll use it on.

Hi Kaiune3D,

I will do once it's finished, it's my first attempt so don't judge too harshly. I will say that the next one I'm doing will be laser cut and higher quality materials. This one I'm completing now is with just some pieces I had around the house. I'll keep you posted on both my model and DIY Cintiq.

DIY Cintiq Update

Hi guys,

As promised, here are a couple pics of my DIY Cintiq. I did say in a post before that it's a little rough round the edges so don't judge to harshly I will be getting a proper case sorted for it and a new screen (unfortunately through adjusting the screen position while measuring it all up, I accidentally damaged the display circuit board, hence the line of green pixels on the screen.)

I have used a Wacom Intuos 3 A4 PTZ930, a 15" LCD Screen and some hardware to power the screen and allow a DVI-HDMI display lead to be connected. All levels of pressure sensitivity working and almost completely jitter free. (some jittering by the very bottom right of screen due to the placement of the CCFL inverter, doesn't bother me though).

Now to get onto my Vamp!!

That's pretty nifty, I wonder if I could do something like that with my old I2.

Thanks, I don't see why not? You just have to be lucky with size of the sensor area matching an LCD Screen really. Mine is A4 so its perfect for a 15" LCD.

A wealth of knowledge is over at http://www.bongofish.co.uk/ I hope linking to external sites isn't frowned upon!?

Some tests on the suit!!

Hi guys, hope your all well?

Sorry for not posting anything sooner, been a little hectic as of late. I have managed to finish up the base of the suit and ready for further refining in zbrush. I did a test render in Vray to see how I liked the texture for the suit and it came out pretty good I think. There's no buttons or such as of yet, like I said just finished up the base. Onto the fun part now!!

Cheers for reading

Suit Update

Hi Guys,

Managed to get a render for of the suit and body together, Still no skin texture for the body yet. Just a standard Vray SSS for the skin at the moment.

I feel I'm done with the suit at the moment. Going to move onto the skin texturing and the Hair. (the joy! )

Cheers for looking!
