Village Girl

Happy Ramadhan and happy fasting to all my fasting (and not fasting) friends. 1st weekend of fasting month, and as usuall, I'll try to keep busy on the weekends to try to create something new. This is 3d model of a fictional character. Let's just call her......erm.. Kak Siti...wait2, too typical...hmm.. Kak Ros.. no no her... Kak Ani....The model took me about 6 hours i think to model and texture. I use Facegen to create the face and ncloth to simulate the baju kurung and tudung. Then sculpt a bit in zbrush especially at the tudung area. The cloth simulation for tudung looks more like alas meja than supposedly the tudung. Texture in photoshop, and then rendering in Maya software. I tried to render in Mental Ray, but i sucks in MR settings. So I just used method that I comfortable with. After render, compositing in Photoshop. ~Done

Some other angles and 3d maya models of Kak Ani.

Merdeka modelling practice

Nearly a month without update. Now I have a job as a 3d modeller in Shock3d. Don't have time to touch maya at home. Balik kerja, tido, bgn pagi pergi kerja. Everydya i'll woke up at 6.50, 7.30 went to the bus stop, then take LRT to KL sentral. Then take a bus to TTDI. It took me 2 hours per trip. huhu. That is my daily routine now. :p .. For this project, i somehow inspired to do model of chedet/tun mhathir...Maybe Merdeka is coming next week and i get patriotic somehow :p.   So this is it. It took me 5-7 hours to finish it i guess, minus the time i took to play games, golek2, eat and watch tv. I used Facegen to generate the basic shape of the face, then export it into roadkill to do uv unwrap. Then export to zbrush to sculpt2. then i projected some images of chedet onto the model, brush2 suclpt2 here and then finish.

Abu completed!

Yeay! Abu is finally complete. It took me 2 days to learn the process of uv pelting that would only took several minutes to do.  Argh, what a waste of time. Abu's cloth was simulated by ncloth. I learnt from my mistakes of ncloth from my fyp. I then realized that the way i modelled the cloth in my fyp is wrong. Huhuu.  Rendered in maya software and maya vector, then photoshop it. Then, voila!

Abuku sudah berbaju!

Abu is not naked anymore! Currently UVing for texturing process. The cloth later on will be using ncloth simulation.

Updates on Abu

Just started modeling Abu. Finished rough model of Abu's body, face hair and tengkolok. Tomorrow start model the shirt, sash, trousers, only then start tu sculp a bit in zbrush. This is my 1st time modeling using the box modeling method. I like how it turns out. I can still manage to get the correct shape but in the same time maintain the polycount and topography. :p Abu's body proportion is a bit stylized. Feet and hands are bigger than his face. Very thin arms and legs, but a bit muscular.

sliat afro

Meet Abu Bin newest character...haha..just practise sketching today. I'm thinking of model Abu in 3d after this..

If some of u guys wondering, "hey, it seems very familiar.. Looks like Afro Samurai"...The answer is yes. I straighforwardly trace it from Afro Samurai wallpaper and memelayukan si abang negro itu...:p Just like I said, this is just a practise. Che Mat once said, if you can't draw, TRACE IT!!...Soon, you will get the stroke. So, that what i did. I'm so noob in drawing
