Texture test

Hey guys, have been experimenting with textures for the last few weeks, here is the latest result. It's important that the realistic jumper texture blends well with the plain skin of the character so this has been the focus, have left the colour of the jumper out for now as its not currently working with the rest of the model. Also still fine tuning SSS shader and experimenting with the overall colour but generally happy with the direction its going in.

Layout/Scene Setting/Tracking

Since we got a first pass on the live action edit, we started out testing out some shots tracking them and placing geometry so we see how well it is flowing. We should have a pre-vis good and ready to go definitely by xmas. In the meantime here's a couple of tracks to give an idea. Cheers!

Live action first pass

Obviously an early version but its looking good already, a few minor alterations then were ready to start tracking.

Thanks to Matt Cameron for helping with the live action shoot, the edit and for giving us some great advice and feedback.

Eyes testing

Hi there, we realise eyes are almost never present in the 3d models and other tests we showed so, this wee test should give an idea of how we intend to do it and the countless possibilities of expressions this could give to our characters. Thanks for listening over and out :)
