I have finished the modeling and texturing of my character. It is a wood/dirt troll one might come across when wandering in some unknown forest.

Originally created for the Enchanted Forest Challenge back in May/June. I had some time to map and paint over the past three weeks, and this is what I came up with.

Enjoy. Comments are always welcome.

It is rigged, and there is a walking animation. I will remake the animation within the next month. Eventually there will be mosses, dead leaves and grasses as simulations on his skin.

Modeled and Animated in Lightwave
Painted in Aura
Poly Count 13,000 (non-subpatched)

Hey this is veeeeerryyy creative stuff here, I love the anim.... when you talked about details, well that one has more than that.... a more drastic lighting for an added terible mood... the way he's doing with his arms is funny, but I suppose he will be featuring in the middle of a deep forest trying tomake his way through the branches.... ok I'll stop dreaming....

Great work, I'll vote for yours....

Great character and concept. Modeling and textures really give it an organic feel (obviously what you were striving for). Very well done. Can't wait to see it in an environment.

this is very well done. I've enjoyed following this one come along. Just one thing though, are the fingernails textured? They appear kinda flat and gray. The toenails are textured, but the fingernails don't seem to have been. If it was your intention to have the fingnails look that way I would personally suggest sticking to a theme either texture the fingernails or untextureing the toenails, just my viewpoint on it. The rest of the textureing is done superbly. did i spell "textureing" correctly? :D

The finger nails are supposed to be textured.
I was wondering if someone was going to notice. I noticed it after I posted. I'll be touching them up.

Thanks! and I'm in the process of making a tutorial as I write. Well not right now, at this exact moment, but you know what I mean.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. Entish, a little, but this guy is far more unfriendly. As a matter a fact, so unfriendly, he doesn't need to stop devouring his prey to breath, because he breaths through the hole in the sides of his torso. Very Nasty!

Looks great! I think it would be creepier if he walked slower, but that's it. I can't wait to see him all mossy.

Bonus points for originality!

Thank you.

Thus spoke Zarathustra, and he left his cave, glowing and strong as a morning sun that comes out of dark mountains.
