P.S. I must point out that this model is not my own design, but is a model I made from a figureine that I bought from a Stall.

Very Nice - only minor criticism, the eyes look a bit 'painted on'.

Totally sweet :)

Im with starbase1 - her eyes dont fint with the rest - go for 3D eyes and try aiming for that natural eye depth look.

I couldn't disagree more - I think the eyes are the best part of your model - yes, they look different and unrealistic, but that's what gives this that touch of magic in my opinion! Often times in creating a masterpiece you have to deviate from the norm to get people to really look.

Ignore this post if you were going for photo realism, but of course that's not what you were going for.

My 2 cents

Great job!

Very nice. The one thing that I might change however would be the hair color as the hot pink is unlike anything else in the image. Maybe some purple or red hits on an incidence angle would help. Just me.

It's not that aiming for a unrealistic look is a bad thing. I like the looks very much. But.. the look of the eyes doesn't fit the rest.

Other than that... i agree with you on the deviation part :D

Hi Guys, thanx for the cool responce.

Thanx for the crite everyone, but realy, this is the LW - Gallery - Finished.

DM67: Thanx. Sorry, no more poses on this one, was realy just a kinda experiment to see if I could model someone elses design, and come up with Cartoon style eyes. Well, maybe if I have enough time, I'll try another pose, hehe.


veljko: Thanx for the encouragement. I have another character in the Pipe line called Trick or Treat Pete.


Zafar Iqbal: Thanx, again, just more experimentation.


Wade: Thanx, The whole character could probably benefit from some kind of shading, but was just going for a basic clay kinda look, coz the ref is a figureine that I bought from a stall, although not realy going for photorealism. Not realy my bag.


pilkiwilky: Thanx, spot on. I never go for photorealism, more like hyperrealism. I wanted to make the eyes the focal point, and I am happy to say by the responce here, I have succeeded. Thanx again.

Zafar Iqbal & starbase1: Thanx, the eyes are 3D, but with an image map on the inner sphere. The eyes for the figureine that this model is based upon has painted on eyes, so that is where I'm comming from. Thanx for noticing.

Thanx again guys, I learn't alot from this model and intend to use that knowledge to improve in the future.

Best Wishes
