Daxter, II by Dave-Mastor Daxter, II by Dave-Mastor
Finally, it's here! Daxter, V. II. I hope there's enough of a difference to make it worth the wait... and the time I spent on it for that matter.

The head doesn't have any morph targets yet, so I moved the verts by hand to give him the smile. I learned a lot of crap while making this model, so it was all worth it to me.

I might add some actual fur in Maya for the next render, if I can get it to work with this model.

Tell me what you think!
You can download a high res version too.

Daxter is © Naughty Dog Inc.

Pretty good work. I was going to say add fur but you already know. Dax's fur is more yellowish than tan.

Other than that great stuff!!!

Definitely well done, though I don't like how he looks a little more slender in the belly/leg region in comparison to your other one. Other than that, the texture is coming along nicely, and the pose it neat.

That's actually totally due to the angle; I don't like it either, but the mesh is almost exactly the same for the body, with a few minor changes for better skinning.

Good, I'm glad it looks better... I may have to tone it down just a wee bit though... it seems a little over saturated.

You're crazy.

Actually, I did. But I did that before I read your comment, I forgot that whenever you resubmit a picture dA resets the max image size; though this one still isn't at it's maximum.

WTF? :o I wonder why the crap it does that.

:icondave-mastor:
Dave-Mastor Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2009
I think because your changing the file, even if the resolution doesn't change, it still resets the full view size box, so if it did change resolution it wound get all fubar.

:iconohnoesplz: SHINIEST EYES AND GOGGLES EVAR. (srsly, the chrome is... mind boggling :iconexplodingheadplz:)

Man, this came out awesome :boogie: So he's all rigged and poseable now? Besides the head, rofl. I love how his tail is all like "FLORP" on the floor. I want to chew on it D:

I also love the colour in the background, haha.

One thing I'd do is play with Levels in Photoshop to give the colours more contrast. They're a bit muddy for the time being, which would be okay in a scene, but I think something brighter is called for in a "TADA!" sort of image like this XD. Anyway, I can show you how to do that if you dun know what I mean :D

Great job! :highfive:

Well I'm glad you like it. I find it highly amusing that the one thing I didn't change at all from the old model, the chrome on the goggles, is the part which is getting the most compliments.

You're right about the Photoshop levels, but, I generally don't like to do post work in Potatoslop. I'll toy around with it later to see if I can get any good results though.
