Gorilla modeling


My attempt to model a gorilla I sketched out. I will upload the sketch later which will be attached to my finalized versions of my 3D models (if anyone is wondering where they are). I usually draw out full rotations of my characters before I model which I think is a necessity for me. It was my first time modeling a gorilla and it took a long time. The mesh works a bit differently from a human so I used a different method for the which was challenging. I usually do box modeling but this time I chose to test out curve modeling. There are still a few touch ups on the model but here it is for now. He is supposed to look meaner but I haven't rigged it yet so he's as friendly as Barney, if anyone still remembers the purple dinosaur.

There is a story attached behind this, but the shortest summary I can think of so far is a Gorilla playing whack-a-mole with a tiny cute bird. I'll try to upload more often so stay tuned!

Taking a Break

This model would be my mascot. It is quite simple and was fun to model since this drawing appeals to me for some reason. I took some screen shots of it and tried to add an extra touch to it. Can anybody guess what it is supposed to resemble?

Preview of Characters, Part 1

Hello all,

I am still alive and been pretty busy learning more about modeling, everyday it's been getting easier and easier. Here are two preview of my characters I will be completing soon but there will only be W.I.P for now. They look pretty similar but are two different characters,
