Here are some renders of my new Bishop mod. This is a new project I am gonna work on when coming back from Annecy. Yes I am a Dreamworks fan boy but there is an other reason I chose Shrek for inspiration.

Wireframes after the break

This was fully modeled and rendered in Maya by the way. Looks like I am getting the hang of it in the end. I am also getting pretty fluent in facial rigging but I need to come up with a character design first.

    The bad: Why modify bischop and have him look like another icon.
    The good: The teeth are incredible! Im inspired. What else could be done to bischop and have _this_ much effect.

    @ Henk. it’s just for a quick animation test Henk, not for showreel material, I understand your point and you are right but it will make a nice little gag when you hear the audio. I thought about Shrek immediately.
    @Remi, no, YOU is awesome!

    Haha, I should`ve figured as much. Looking forward to it. I could just see a french whinetaster with his teeth on the glass like that.
