Quick update for the character I've been working on. Took the painting into maya and with the idea of "he has 6 eyes!", tried to recreate it. for those of you that convert 2d concepts to 3d, you might see the difficulty in the initial sketch... That said I don't think I've found the sort of success I would have liked so will be exploring this more tomorrow.

castleish- sepent

I thought it'd be fun to make a 3d model out of it. Here is some of the progress today.

I haven't decided if the things on his back will be fish fins or spikes, so that part needs to be done along with fixing the topology of the rest of his body. (it's what I colored in green. Anyway that's where it is. Hope you like.
