UUUUP!

on: June 30, 2013, 05:22:43 pm


Do you recognize this little guy? The beginning of the movie really was a kick in the head, just about the best animation scene so I thought I'd do a little something.

I'd really appreciate if you could rip it apart. I'm having a hard time with the pants as you can see.

EDIT: Used a black background, a transparent background made the thing unreadable in the forums.

Thanks!

his pants region has a readability issue, it kinda looks like he's standing
the upper half of him says sitting, the lower says standing

looks good other then that, though

Thank you Candyman.

I've tried tweaking the leg a bit more but it's still doesn't look right I think (although it's better).

Another update:



I'm finding it difficult not to expand my palette at this point considering so many different elements are part of the picture now.

Was he ever that happy in the movie? ::) The "smiling with closed eyes" reminds me of anime, but since he's an old man it sort of makes sense.

He was happy towards the end too, when he goes to the kid's scout meeting. A pretty inspiring film all in all.

Gotta admit I'm forcing myself to continue here  :crazy:. Spent quite a while on this. Anyway, here's another update, as usual some C+C would be nice (it's for a contest):

V.1 V.2 V.3V. 4V.5 V.6

V. 7

Some crits:

The right side of his right leg and hip-area needs more contrast (i.e. darker).
The edge of the right side of his coat (the edge that is nearest to his belt) should be highlighted.

Overall, you should study the reference for how light and dark wraps around each 'form'. I see that your lines stays pretty true to the ref, but the 3d forms in your image do not.
