This is looking really good. You have some excellent 2d skills there. I think you should enter the 2d comp as well, even if you have to do it in another forum.. or is that classed a blasphemy?

Looks good. The only thing that bothers me is the trim on her hat; it looks off.

OK then...

Sorry that I haven't managed to reply in a while I've been really busy both with this, and with work, not to mention the young sprog. That said, I appreciate all the comments and do read everything you all say, and where appropriate take it on board and act accordingly. Was really pleased to see Mr Kite pop in. I'm a big fan of your work Kite. Do pop in again.

So what's new? Well, throne's done. Carapace is done. All sorts of odds and sods behind the scenes too. Should be able to nail this sucker down this week and get modelling. If not I've got next week off, so I can definitely hit it hard.

Thanks again for all the support. Latest installment of the back story is on the right of the image...

Wow that is looking great I love what she is sitting on very nice!! I can't wait to see him all finished up! He is gonna look pretty terrifying! Though you should put some riding boots on her not just bare feet.

Thanks Rych. Don't panic. Boots etc are on their way. Painting her whole leg in allows me to experiment with impunity.

Exclamation

Right, time to invest this lunch break in replying to all of you who posted over the last few days. Thank you so much for the support.


omnicypher - My sentiments exactly.

Segreto & Star_Scream & Mr T & Que - Glad you like the side saddle look. I think was a necessary, and probably the most important, change. Originally, she was going to be a stilt walker, but I wasn't happy with this design, hence the ghost. It took a while for me to realise that covering him too much with her dress was gonna look a bit crappy, an the side-saddle look gives her a sexier attitude and a more confident, relaxed and capable air overall.

freesupra - Thank you!

DaddyDoom - Mmm. Nurses.

Rych - I'm glad you like the throne aspect of her. I was tooing and froing over whether to go with the fluffy look, but I think it's ok, and suits her. As long as his costume has a decent contrast to show where he begins and she ends, I think it will be ok.

MaggieQue - I thnk I agree with your first point about the colours for the ghost. The 2nd comment maybe seems a little too subjective for me. However, You may get your wish. I'll leave the colour balancing until the end I think.

Mr Kite - Thanks for stopping by! Let's be rivals! . So I agree with what you're saying about the need for a link, and I think I'll have to figure that out once the main composite is done. I suspect this will be the part where the serendipity aspect comes into play. Just by trying a bunch of stuff I should be able to home in on something I like.

Ryvick (and Star Scream again) - Tell yo what. If I win, then I'll look in to getting posters printed.

neosorcerer - I'm glad you enjoyed the letter, I was probably more pleased with the directio the story is going than I was the concept art.

Chung Wong - I doubt I'll have time to do the Concept one, but who knows. If I can complete this with 2 weeks to spare (very unlikely), I may have a go. If I did that, i'd hot foot it over to GA, and fight for them. I like those guys and gals.

yoyomon - Yeah, I think you may be right there. Guess I've been looking at it too long.

Incredibo - Never underestimate the power of the normal map. I lead the prop team on APB here at Realtime Worlds. You'll be amazed what we can produce with very littele budget. I'm confident I can do the same here. And the budget her is massive by the way. With double faces, it's effectively an 18,000 tri budget. Lovely.

khemist000 - Thanks for stopping by. I'll do my best.

bb0x - Demand granted.

Tekei - Not a problem. "Awesome" is more than I could hope for really.


Ok, that should about do it. I'l try to get a decent update put together for y'all over the next few days. Thanks for dropping in, and thanks to all those who have flocked to the 3DTotal banner. I think we can make this 2 in a row.

Looking good. I like that you managed to tell the backstory thru letters. I really like the wild-eyed crazed look of her "chauffeur," I hope you keep that look when you move to 3d.
