Excellent characters with some great expression.
What had you render them in?
Thank you, they're all rendered in zbrush with BPR.
Here's the last lot of mice.
Been a while since I've had time to do any zbrushing and haven't even upgraded to the amazing new version yet but here's something I tinkered with over the weekend, not finished yet but its getting there.

Here's a larger thorn ogre, still quite a bit of work to do on his stumpy legs.

This is a WIP I started this weekend. Its a heartless Faerie Queen character and I wanted a Pre-Raphaelite look to her. There's still lots to do, but its a beginning.
Had a bit of a tweak around the eyes but she's nowhere evil looking enough so I'm going to give her a snarl and blast her hair as if there's a storm.
Here's the beginnings of a control console inspired by those lovely old bakelite radios. Its from one of my books, where its one of thirteen, used to open a gateway to Hell back in 1936.
some cool work in your thread ! nice console radio
" crits n comments always welcome ! "
"if he who has the most fun wins ? - i won ten fold !! "
Thanks, I want to make a diarama for the radios, with something horrifying going on (when I get the time).
This is a character from the same book as the Faerie Queen. The knitting needs a LOT more work.
Somehow your thread has escaped me, until now. Love your work! So much atmosphere. Great characters. They all look like they have stories to tell, like they have been toiling along in their lives and you jumped out and took their picture. Not just life but history. Hard to pull off, but you have done it. Well done.
Gosh, that's very kind of you. All the characters I've done here are from the books I've written so they do have stories to tell
I just wish I had more time to practice zbrush, I still haven't downloaded the lastest upgrade yet because I know I'd want to spend days learning the new features. It's just so addictive!
Just do it! Download it! Your mind will explode. You are very good, and have both an eye and an ear. I will have to find your books.
My children have all grown. My wife and I would take them all to the bookstore once a month so they could pick out a new book or three. Children's books are so important. They not only entertain, but also expose them to a greater world, and of course, to great art. I am eager to take my future grandkids on that journey...If bookstores even exist then. I hope they do. Great memories.
I'm holding off downloading until I finish my latest book. Then I'll have a bit of time to explore it and not feel guilty, can't wait to try some of the features I've seen in the galleries here.
I don't think all bookstores will ever completely disappear, but the market has changed massively within the past 5 years alone. No one in the industry really knows what's going to happen.
Thanks again for the encouragement. I'm just an eager dabbler, so its fantastic to have such positive feedback. I'll keep posting the odd little character and WIP and continue to be in awe of posters like yourself.
