I finally finished the Pickmebat for the CGCoach Creatures and Critters contest (link), as ever it finished with a bang, with one of those long days and night's work. I managed to submit the final artwork with only 26 minutes left for the deadline, that was 7:34 am here in London.
The submission comprised 3 distinct required items, one final render (above), one page with a quick step by step to include the original concept (the mess below) and one turntable movie to be uploaded on Youtube and embedded on the contest's thread.
As ever I wish I had had more time to make some things better, never mind, I'm happy with the result, even above what I expected to produce when I started. Nevertheless I'll do some more work on it now, a few hours will make me completely satisfied and then bring the model in Modo to do a proper render especially since the membranes are the perfect stuff of subsurface scattering, something I really want to learn to master.
