Semester 3 Interior: Arnold’s Room

Semester 3 group assignment! A semi-realistic version of Arnold’s bedroom from the aptly named cartoon… ‘Hey Arnold’.


I modelled and textured:

– the roof

– the wacky purple shelf

– bed and pillow

– wall shelf above bed

– radiator

– books and CDs

– computer desk and red chair with wheels

– ancient computer monitor


My dinosaur also makes a cameo. HA_2

Here’s a screenshot from the cartoon, lifted off someone’s tumblr.



Some new stuff just because

I started a new character model, based on this little person I made a long time ago. unnamed_diva_by_pictomage-d5xrvnj

Here’s her ZBrush model with a big clump for hair…PG_zbrush3PG_zbrush2

And the low poly model with an AO bake and temporary… planes for hair…PG_lowpoly1

Aaaaand… here is some strange texture style I’m testing out. It’s supposed to look cel-shaded, but with pixels instead? I will probably throw some toon shader outlines on top of the final texture map. I’m having trouble visualizing how exactly I want this to look. Pixel art requires a fair bit of patience. Her temporary eyes are some crystal orbs from A Link to the Past, ha ha.


Final Character – Work in Progress!

For our final semester, we have two giant assignments and this is one of them. She’s the 3D version of this character design I did for another class. She’s turning out a bit older-looking than I intended.

I’m so excited to texture her that I’m using every ounce of strength to restrain myself from typing in caps lock.

This is my most recent 3D thingy!


Here is the concept sketch we did in character design class. I panicked at the last minute and scrapped my original idea, which… involved a Medusa head and humongous haute couture dress. I can dream, can’t I?



Outlining it in Photoshop made it pretty lifeless in the end…


Then it was modelled in Zbrush (mostly; the wings were 3DS Max), textured, and thrown into infinite darkness rendered in Maya. Click the image for the gigantic version.


Let the exorbitant amount of purple burn your retinas.

She was born in a lab Jurassic park-style, and her brain was grown with… the stem cells of a fabulous human. No, I don’t know the science behind stem cells also I just had a beer.

The Zbrush model! Such beauty.


She is the dancing queen, young and sweet, only 17… million.*


And textured! The topology gets a little scary around her flowers, but overall she looks pretty good. I think this model turned out so well because I didn’t set any sky-high expectations for myself when starting it. It’s difficult to be super hard on yourself when doing something you’ve never tried before.


*this is actually too young, according to wikipedia
