Eve So Far

OK guys, Eve is very nearly done. I'm not going to finish her tonight. After 3 days solid Maya (only stopping when I sleep) I've decided my brain needs a rest :)

It shouldn't take me too long to finish in the morning.

Update on the Moon Shuttle launch area

I've completed the walkway now and dropped it into the scene and I'm much happier than I was earlier with it. I'll work on the other parts of the Launch area now I think it's coming together quite well.

Hollywood Scene Update

I thought that I would give you guys and update of where this environment is at the moment. I have just finishing qickly blocking out where the sign, hills and satelite will be place. Now I am gonna start adding alot more detail to them and then start working on the foreground of the environment.

Chimp Close up

Ok guys, I put the chimps head into ZBrush to make a little bit of texture for a displacement map and then made a colour texture for his face. It needs more work and it's not definitive. Let me know what you think anyway.

A Few Prop Ideas

These are really rough sketches of different props that the characters could either carry or props that could be placed in certain scenes. I am trying to make the props look really bad so they don't look like they either work or belong there.

I am not sure if we have talked about this, but I was thinking maybe our characters could be carrying some kind of weapon, that they don't know how to use or looks so ridiculous that it wouldn't work. These are just a few inspired by different films but I was think even more ridiculous than this. What do you guys think?
