Seven.- thanks... of course I'm open to suggestions about the dreads and any other aspect of the character.
I don't know... maybe something the color of his claws. More like a traditional dreadlock. That way you keep the same color scheme and a braid decoration with a glow much like what you have currently.
seven - yeah, it was always my intent to use the spec map to make the details pop out. In fact I just finished the glow and the spec maps and he is looking great. I'll be posting an update here pretty quick.
So here is the final update with all my maps (Diffuse, Normal, Spec, Spec Color, and Glow). He's currently at 1,236 tris.
Now I need to rig him so that I can put him in a "super-awesome" pokemon pose. I might use the few extra tris for a fireball or something.
warrior21 - Thanks man, yours look cute also,love it.
walrus - well,a friend also said the same thing about the eye,i've changed them to more calm eyes now.and thanks to your tutorial sir, me learn a lot from there.:thumb:
SuckADuck - a pretty looking pokemon i say,maybe make the seam around the eye less visible.:thumb:
seven - thank you.yours are looking good also, keep it up.:thumb:
GarrettMinley - thank you.looking forward for your pokemon also.
Pavel Petrenko - HellBovine yeah!!
small update, changed the eyes, textured back of the head and part of the body. let me know what you guys think..
Thx for the comment and tips for the final pose. Do you know where link to start learning rigging?
Thx for the comment too. Your pokemon looks awesome.
Look really cute. The wing will better if you using opacity map to make it like a real insect's wing.
Hello my sister. Nice to see you came here again. Thx for the comment Wanna try to join too? Yeah, i also entering 2d and 3d, include unearthly challenge.
I have to put my hand up for your skill dude. Great skill. :thumb: How can you using a limited tris budget to make a model that looks like need a much tris budget. Any tips that can share to us?
1st time in GA and 1st comp? Welcome to GA. Look really cute.
Nice and cute dude
I like how you apply the normal map. Looking good :thumb:
Paprika: Wow! That is looking awesome, and very pokemon!
Draxxuss: Looking good, my only critique would be that the texture, although very nice, looks a little "gritty" for a pokemon.
Walrus: Great model! It definitely has the pokemon vibe going strong... however, I think I preferred the old color scheme over newest one. But judging from the mix responses, that may just be a personal preference issue.
Well, I looked over my "ultimate" pokemon, and noticed that it kind of looked like a kitten. Weak. I played with the proportions a bit, and have started working on the UVs again. Here's a comparison (the gray model is the new one):
White Guardian - thanks a lot. I'd put together a tutorial if anyone is interested. Would focus on some of the techniques I use in helping save time as well.
Total time on this model was about 20 hours. Concept, model, texture, rig)The final poly count is 1249 tri. I will be doing some animation with as well and will post some vids of that. I'll put together a better presentation sheet before Sunday but wanted to post this one now for crits.
Update will be soon!
Walrus thanks man! :thumb:
Seven yeh my to. I kill many time on this lvl
Paprika i like your pokemon! Very cool hair details!
Draxxuss Great work! I like your textures!
Spambergo - thanks.. right from the start I had decided I wasn't doing a flat shaded "traditional" pokemon. I wanted to go for a gritty cool character that I would want choose to play in a game. Besides... as I had said before, this IS the Ultimate Pokemon contest. I took a plain jane design from the pokemon world and "ultimafied" it. I could have made a bouncing ball with teeth, coloured it 2 tones of blue, and that would have fit right into the Pokemon world pretty well. I just chose to push my design in this direction instead of that.
thanks guys for the comments,
walrus: i tried the pink on the cheek but it didnt look that great, as far the purple under his eyes, wanted to show the poisions/ghostly vibe, i swear i saw it once in a pokemon episode like that haha
seven: agree bouth the mouth but, well i got lazy to change anything, what can i say :inocent:
ivars: man, that is hilarious! brilliant
GarrettMinley: awesome shapes. altho i think the wings are killing your design, just my 2 cents tho.
paprika: coming along great, look forward to the finals
heres my finals, aka i got lazy n just wanted to be done with
already handed in

good luck to everbody!
Also, I liked both color schemes a lot.
First post... anyway I'm gonna do one of those evolving pokemons. It's a little under 1200 tris now. Here are some wire:
I have no clue about the textures yet... but I think I will go for the flat cartoony style with slight shading since it's very distinctive. Hmm... oh yeah it's gonna be an electric pokemon. Nice work everyone.
finish UV, tomorrow i'm gonna texture it
cnc are always welcome
your pokemon is funny :thumb:
if im not mistaken, is there yellow star patterns in the body of your vulvee?
that is awesome man :thumb:
don't know why but i love the purple one better, it looks more cute
i really appreciate your texture painting, if you can finish it, it will be rockin'
your pokemon is kick ass, but IMHO ii's too shinny, maybe you want to add more dark orange there?
@Sogeking: Thanks a lot for the input! I like how your's is coming out so far, can't wait to see the texture.
Does anyone else have a preference between my chibi model, and my newer model? I may just go ahead and do both, if I have time, as textures may play an important role in my decision.
sogeking - Thanks. Yeah, I think you're right, the oranges kind of got washed out. I wish I had time to tweak the textures more, but unfortunately I have more pressing matters and have to move on.
So, here is the final composite....
Hey guys I decided im gonna scrap my old pokemon and go with this one:
The concept isn't finished (right arm and wings) but I know what I wanna do just wanted to start modeling asap. Crits more than welcome and very appreciated.
Draxxuss: Very cool design, really like colors youve chosen as well, love the poses too
Aftermath: Good to see you decided to enter, cant wait to see your take on Blastoise
Paprika: Really like your texturing so far, very clean and detailed
Chippy82: Really like the mesh but the texture isnt workin for me, woulda been cool to see you make the hands and back transparent and more fire like, but good entry none the less
Walrus: What can I say, you have essentially captured exactly what a Pokemon should look like, great job
Chippy82 Nice fire pokemon!
Nutz /Paulette I like colors and design of your pokemon, good job!
warrior21 Very cool idea! Little poke on head, great!
