This was sort of inspired by Da' Falcon's CGing of himself. I relise its not finished yet but I have put a lot of work and time into and would like to see what you guys think of it so far.

Extremely impressive for a first CG! My only complaint would probably be that no variations are made in the line thickness, but that's just an asthetic decision. By all technicalities, I can find nothing wrong with this CG, taking into account that it is incomplete.

very nice, and considering it's a first attempt, with some practice, perhaps a career switch to illustration? Wink

wow, that's good. What did you use? Maya? Oh wait, you said first attempt so it couldn't of been Maya. Cinema? Strata? Carrara Studio? Swift 3D?

Surely that's not done with a 3d app? Looks like good old-fashioned lines and paint (even if virtual Wink) to me...

yes, certainly has to be illustrator, freehand, photoshop, something like that...

Maya's Flash renderer does stuff like that. SoftImage and Maya shaders do stuff like that. LW's shaders can do that (with some work).

*like* that, but definitely not *that*... you can see the lines extending beyond the range of the picture at the bottom.

Then this is not "CG". It's 2D art!!!

CG stands for "Computer Graphics", correct? If so, wouldn't any image created on a computer qualify as CG?

Semantics aside, that's some very impressive artwork; I love the shading and the overall style of the image. It's almost enough to make me start up Illustrator and try to make something even half as good. I can't wait to see the finished version!
