    What is your avatar from?

    Oh, this is a character I created with some 3D Software. The character's name is Tyden. Someday I hope to make an JRPG or possibly even a 3D Anime with the entire cast of characters I have...we'll see how that turns out in a decade or so XD

    on 23 July 2017

    Ha! The character design is pretty well done then. The actual model needs some polish here and there but the character design is so strong that I thought it was from some obscure 90's game that I never played. Either that or I thought it might be a character from Reboot.

    on 24 July 2017

    I appreciate the feedback! I agree that the model itself needs to probably be redone or I should work with shading a bit more but It's gettin' there. XD I don't think this early render does it justice though thus kinda making it look like Reboot or an PS1 cutscene. Here's some other real time renders that give it a bit more justice:





    I gotta ways to go but again thanks for the feedback!

    Now that I've seen the whole thing it looks much better. Just needs some textures that aren't all one flat color. Do you know how to unwrap and texture a model? The bumpmap work on the ears is great btw. I think I can see some bumpmap work in the hair too, but maybe it needs better lighting to really bring it out.

    on 24 July 2017

    Yeah, this was around the time that Zelda, breath of the Wild came out and I was highly inspired by cel shaded type of graphics so I used a mix of toon shader and a sort of plastic like material to kind of emulate the look. It turned out alright but nothing like Nintendo's artists.

    I do know unwrapping, texturing, bump, specularity, cavity maps etc. but these don't compliment anime style models I think. Which is why my next project will be more realistic so I can take advantage of these maps. The character is fully unwrapped and has texture maps but they're all solid colors to fit more with the toon+layered shader.

    Lighting was done in Maya very sloppily so I agree, the lighting could be much better. I think I'm going to use a different rendering engine from here on out. I would also have used hair cards for the hair but it just didn't look right. I blame Nintendo for making me fall in love with cel shaded graphics :(

    hey man! What japanese games have you gotten so far on your ps4? And what are you looking forward to in future?

    Yo! Right now I have Persona 5, Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2, Dragon Quest Builders, Star Ocean 5, Final Fantasy XV, Tales of Zestiria, World of FF, and some indies/smaller games like I am Setsuna, etc. At this point, I'm really only looking forward to Dragon Quest XI if it comes stateside and Ni No Kuni II. DQXI is looking gorgeous btw. How about you?

    metal gear solid and yakuza are my main ones. keeping an eye on MHW and future yakuza's. Nice list of titles you've played!

    on 29 June 2017

    Ah, for some reason I thought I could only list JRPGS XD I also have MGSV:TPP and Yakuza. I need to see more of MHW before I make a decision to get it.

    on 29 June 2017

    i wonder will the ark crowd buy it. in some ways MHW looks much better but then ark has it's advantages too.

    So are you from Indy?

    Yup, and it's everything people say it is...boring. XD

    on 16 May 2017

    I work just up the road from you in Lebanon and live up around Lafayette. Although Indy may be boring, there are worse places to live.

    As much as it pains me to do this...I've cancelled my pre order for the Switch. Not because I don't think it's worth it though.

    Sorry for your loss.

    on 25 February 2017

    Eh, it's alright really. I just know I need to focus on my studies first. I can't even have this thing at the house, I just know I'll put too much time into Zelda! Gotta discipline myself.

    on 25 February 2017

    Having something that you can use Anywhere, Anytime with Anyone would sure be tempting.
