Characters Name: General Grievous "From Star Wars"
Date Started: September 2nd 2007
Date Completed: March 1st 2009
Time Spent: 2 Months
Programs Used: Animation Master, Maya, Zbrush, Photoshop, After effects
My Personal Comments: YAY! Its finally done and not a moment to soon.

First of all, I know what you're thinking.. "2007 - 2009!!" xD After I finished modeling him in A:M I wanted to learn and use maya. And it took me a while to get it and figure it out. I only really started working on him again January 3rd this year.

But what a year this has been so far. When I got maya in March last year, all I was doing was learning modeling. Thats all I ever did in animation. But in order to finish this character I had to learn more. So within the last month and a half I have learned:
UV mapping
Zbrush "making and exporting detail on the model"
And a hell of alot of other small things

There are a few things I know I did wrong.. or could have done better with more weeks of trying to learn. (my main thing at this moment is that I cant get it to continously rotate.. but I'll work on that) But I think you all will agree I have waited to long.

This is the hardest model I have worked on and IMO, My best work. I am very proud and would love to hear what everyone has to say.

Excellent work on this! I like the modeling and sculpting in Animation Master, Maya, and Zbrush. But how exactly did you render the lightsabers? Beautiful work on those!

RotS movieThis guy is so handsome. I'm impressed at the level of detail - what were your references? The ones for the gutsack must have been hard to come by.

I am a HUGE fan of General Grievous, and I'm working on a robot loosely based on him. Seeing work like this helps motivate me to keep working.
