Old Record Player Render

I spend two weeks on this gramophone, the model was bought online but it was way too high poly and I ended up rebuilding half of it. It is fun to make Asian style art, I'll see if I can do more of it.

Face Render

I found this face model on Modo's inventory so I used it. It wasn't very good looking and I had to adjust it a lot, especially the ears. I tried my best to make the skin look decent using Modo's shader system, in theory there should be more layers and the shader should be more complicated. But considering I'm doing this at home with nobody to help me figuring stuff out and I had instant noodles for lunch today cause I had no time to make better lunch this is good enough.

One night I was scrutinizing over the render and trying to see what should be fixed next, I was suddenly afraid that the eyes would open up and look back at me. But that wouldn't happen because 1. it's silly and 2. I didn't make any eyeballs for it, so there's nothing behind those eyelids! (Somehow that sounds even more scary.)

Miniature French Chair Render

I bought the model on-line and tweaked it quite a bit, and redid all the UVs cause it was unusable. Texturing this one is pretty fun. I still need to learn more about Modo's rendering tricks, but it's not too difficult to handle.
