Ulquiorra: A Learning Process  

Ulquiorra is now lit and beautiful.  I swear from now on I'll have the patience not to post the crappo-rough stuff and only spam bleachness with my final pieces!  The Renji and Tatsuki picture will (hopefully) be done a week from Saturday.

A wonderful, wonderful classmate showed me how to punch a hollow hole all the way through the model!

He's so shiny!

Playing with shadow placement...man, he looks glum.

Ulquiorra STILL sees whut u did thar.

Random Off Topic Note: I know some of  you have asked for me to update my progress in my animation major, so here goes.  In the three weeks I've been going to school, I've already spent 2 complete nights in the lab, one of which was only last night.  The first overnighter I stayed awake the whole time.  Last night, I curled up in a ball under my desk, slept for five hours, then got back up and kept going.  One teacher has said, "There's nothing you can learn from me."  Another, "I find myself enthused by your passion!"  A third, "...and I know [Skilly] wants it because she's been pretty forceful."

ETA: Tried uploading the pictures from somewhere else.  The lighting is kindof dark, so you may need to adjust your screen.

Very cool ^_^

Are you working with 3ds max or maya?

It's nice to see another person (besides me and one other person in my class)making Bleach models.

Looking forward to seeing the other models.

We work with Maya. I want to see your models!

I will be making Ichigo next (My friend requested me to do Riku from kingdom hearts so I am busy with that model)but I plan on posting him here when finished.

Ah Maya you know I have Maya 2010 but never learned how to use that program (my professor teaches Max)can you recommend any books on Maya that might be helpful?

Oh I forgot to ask in my first post, How many Tris are you're Bleach lego models?

Ulq has no Tris. He's all quads. This was my very first foray into the wonderful world of modeling so I teacher drilled into us the importance of only working in quads since when/if we transfer into Zbrush the Tris make it go...a little crazy.

I meant you're Poly/Quad count. I was at Obsidian this July and they use "Tri count" when referring to their models. So my Teacher now uses Tri count instead of Poly count.

Quads are important to the modeling process because otherwise the topology gets all wonky and you get odd edges on the uvs. However most game engines break models down into triangles to render them which is why some people ask, basically its just double the amount of quads anyway.
