:D Your post was a great way to brighten up a gloomy winter day!
As always I love your cartoon characters!
They make me feel fuzzy and giggly all over. . .
Besides that - they always inspire me to keep on trying.
Thanks for posting them.

My Best

Thanks Jeanny. Thanks Bob. I'm going to start cranking out a new series of characters, just heads for now. I want to look at the possibilities of how far I can go. Like this guy, I want big personalities. So here goes . . .

Yes a mad scientist and butler is what I was going for, although the butler was an after thought while making it. Always helps if I sketch out the character first so I know what I'm looking for and don't start changing direction.

No textures Bob. This is the skin mat I use, camera On and 1 distant light. This is the best way I've found to get Cheetah to make the richest skin-look I can get with cartoons. This colour is nice because it has many tones when rendered, change is slightly and the tones go. Be great if all colours had this depth and shade.

Cheers
Terry

Oops, sorry, yes I do slap on some red cheeks in Photoshop, just a blob on each and sometimes a quick splash on the lips. But it doesn't make a massive difference.

The cheeks are exactly what stood out to me that's why I thought texture.:smile:

Your use of lighting works so well.

The Artist

I think this is closer to where I want to get, very simple, lots of props. The last one was a dud. I reckon another 20 and I'll figure out where I'm going. :rolleyes:

How do you set up your lighting Terry?
I spend hours trying to set up lighting.
Depending on my materials I find myself often not accomplishing what I want.
I'm thinking that maybe your current lighting technique may help me.

Thanks

Hi Jeanny, the lighting is one distant light with camera on. That's how I like it. But I play with the specular on the colours like these. I try to make the colours pop and test what works. These are the mats for Clint.

Cheers

These are indeed great! I pop in and out of the forum, so may have missed some topics, but I was wondering if anyone has asked for a 'how to' from you yet? If not, I throwing it out there :)
