Minor Project: The Bear Prince's Ear - Nose WIP

The Bear Prince Ear
My 600th Blog Post...

Geometry still needs to be added/fixed around the ear as you can tell.
Once I add image planes for hair within the ear and around the outside like an actual bear, it won't look so uneven.

@Alan I have sent an email to you.

@Alan Minor Project: Silver's Hat

Silver's Hat

I have attempted to model the hat and I believe I am right in terms of geometry flow etc. Yet I am unsure how to transition/finish off the under side of the ''flap'' part? I have extruded the edge as it runs around the whole head, yet its the underside part if the flap I have no clue about. Any suggestions? She's also looking strange from the front but I think that could be from the lack of hair at the moment?

Basic Ear & Neck

Changes Required

I have created the neck & ear but not to a standard that I feel reflects the character. Due to the geometry but also my own knowledge of creating an ear outside of the tutorials, I think it would be best if I came to you tomorrow for advice to sculpt the ear differently? Will you be free?

I looked around for other ear tutorials to find inspiration in Maya terms, yet I only found this one to be closest to my characters one. Would this type of ear be achievable with less geometry?

Eyes & Nose

Just the ear to go until her features are complete. I think shes starting to look like herself.

Minor Project: Silver Model 01

Blocking Completed

Still need to understand how I will create more of a flow around the top of the head as there is very long faces but I think figuring out the eye will help.

Minor Project: Environment & Animation Influences

Environment & Animation Influences

For my animation & animatic, I want my world to still resemble 'fairy tales' - so in it's own right to be something beautiful, but still kept in line with the characters. After a tutorial with Phil, we agreed that perhaps my world would enrich the colours of the characters, i.e the world will be in snow; bare trees with the moonlight piercing through the branches. Blues, chromes, silvers and pure blacks would create complimentary colours for the Beast, with his array of oranges. This would call for a lot of atmospheric, wide-angled shots and scenic lighting to convey the mood.

We also decided that the Beast would be most scary if he was to talk for less. So the reveal of the Beast will be a extremely dramatic. His piercing shadow through the trees looking like hes grasping the heroes, with the orange creeping its way towards them like a fire, emphasizing the "big reveal".

Rough Eye & Mouth Complete

As geometry will be added I have roughed out the shape of the mouth and eyes by adding the needed rings.
