Little Fauna Collaboration: Modelling Progress

This is the body model for Little Fauna so far. I'm modelling her as base shapes first without clothes and fur, just trying to get the creases and deformations in the right places around the calf and ankles.
Just need to figure out how to put extra bits of hair on the knees, ankles and across the hooves.

Little Fauna Collaboration: Orthographics

Orthographics for the main shape of the body are complete. I'm going to start body modelling first as I want to do some research on modelling her face first as I'm after some sharp lines and flat surfaces to really push her features.
All comments are welcome!

The Summer after Uni...

Once the dust and chaos had settled from uni deadlines and exhibitions the real world opened its gates and reality came flooding in with responsibilities and dilemmas shaking your hand firmly - Ah! the horror! But after accepting this new 'adult lifestyle' and putting the creative cap back on the mood became peacefully crooked again :)

I had decided to revisit an older project similar to Sam from the previous year and delve into my niche of cuteness and all things child-friendly. I plan to redesign my old character Jagteres (now Fauna) from the game project and bring her to life in 3D - but I'm not doing this alone. Me and Anthony are collaborating on this character to get her out quickly and create her effectively in the stages that we are most confident in.

She is still in the pre production stage where I need to get confident in drawing her so I can draw the orthographics correctly  and then begin the long process of modelling.

The images below are what she use to be (image 2) and what she will look like, or similarly (image 1), playing around with design and colour. With her being a faun it will be an interesting challenge on modelling her features and seeing how she walks as she is typically on her toes.

Just thought we would update on what were getting up to - I plan to keep using this blog so feel free to comment! All feedback is welcome!
