Thesis Progress

Well, it's been a while since my last post on my blog. Still working on my thesis, but I actually have something to show this time!

Elia went through some changes, even changing her jacket's color (gasp) but then returning to it's original color (phew). So anyways, here's a posed shot.

Not the pinnacle of perfection, but this is the sculpt with polypaint. I am currently retopologizing her and will be doing some rigorous texturing to make her look perfect. 

Next I have an update on Taluun. He's not posed, but here's my progress so far:

GAHH! He's blue! Yeah, he is. Remember the sculpt a few posts back of the guy with the helmet? Yeah, that is Captain Elim of the Aeroica City Guard and is the same species as my thesis character, Taluun. Taluun was the first of his people. I originally wanted the race to be a dark tan, but after making Elim's sculpt blue, and upon suggestion of my professor, Taluun and the entire species has now turned blue, which to me makes it considerably more exotic and interesting. I'm not saying blue people haven't been done before, but it is different. 

Anyways, it seems that the fun is over for now for my characters. What comes next is many weeks of retopo, rigging, and texuring/UVs. Yay. 

Until next time!
