    Default Mei, HMC 15 expressions

    Hi everyone,

    First time posting 3d work here. This is a recent work I did for the hardcore modeling challenge at cgtalk. Basically we had to pick a character and model 15 different expressions for it. So I thought it would be fun to do a 3d "translation" of Mei from Studio Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro. I decided to post it here since pretty much everything other than the rendering was done in zbrush.

    I hope you like it. And hopefully these images aren't too big. wip images are at cgtalk, I'll post them here soon.

    benny350: thanks. Yes, that's the effect I was going for. Always happy to hear it worked

    SolidSnakexxx: Thanks! Love your mantis

    wolfie:lol a tear would've been a nice touch. Glad you liked Sad, it's one of my favorites as well.


    Alright, I thought I should post these as well. A couple of WIP images from the original thread. Sculpted from basic shapes and retopologized subsequently.

    Yup, oozing awesomeness! Top row indeed!

    Looking at your expressions sheet, I have the sad face when I'm at work, the enjoyment face at lunchtime and the happy face at home time!
