HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!@#
Here, have a biscuit!
I may not be able to be there to get you a gift, but I sure as hell can render something for ya! I hope this helps cheer you up
Special thanks to !AtomicStoney
for drawing the character pose reference sketch, which you can see HERE
. The stars are from `delya
's EnterVoid Battle.
did me a huge favor and helped me find that font for the screaming stars. Everything else I did, concept and background and all.
I really had fun making this, and a lot of personal effort went into it. I really hope you like it `delya
Made in Maya 7, rendered with Mental Ray. Modeling was acheived with a combination of polygons (for the headm ears, and Chucks), NURBS (for the pants and beenie), and subdivision surface for everything else. Hair and tail were done with Maya 7's new hair systems. It was lit with a grey environment, one area light from the front'ish area, and one spotlight in the back for specular backlighting. Shaders for the skin were mental ray subsurface shaders. Almost all other shaders were Maya Ramp shaders. All texturing and the background were done in Photoshop. No need for fancy layers this time, all strait out of Mental Ray this way. NO EDITING. Except for the text, of course. And a special thanks to ~furryomnivore
for editing the EXIF data on the image, LOL.
On to the pictures:

Here's a completely pointless BSP diagnostic render that you don't need to see: You don't even know what these do.
