crappy cats glory!

I'm so excited! After ordering a few toys this morning off the myplasticheart 'pre black friday sale' ( I decided to stick around on the site and browse a bit more only to find that the crappy cat figure was restocked and I didn't know about it..rushed to my phone and cancelled my order, then reordered to get the normal white colourway and the grey one! cant wait to get my paws on it.

making headlines

The new header is up for the numen blog! Few kinks here and there that I will correct over the coming days but otherwise happy with it. Next phase is to take it into maya for modelling so that I can have a 3d mock up of how I want it him to look I will use the character model later for animation when I want to make a short film of the little guy. Here is some sketches I worked over to get the final header.

Everything was quite straightforward up to the point where I had to get the leaves onto the branch. I had to make sure that the wording in the branches was readable but still have enough greenery to make it a believable looking tree branch. It took me a few takes but I think what I came up with works.
