Hi there!

Here is a clean version with base color, i've added evil eyes to make it more menacing, i've tried to make the eye movement increment the "head" turn



I'll try to color it tomorrow to be in time for the challenge :)

IamUh: love the final version, that teeth promises bloody nights at the love couch ^_^

Ails: cool concept, you could add a "breath" animation to make more alive, like 3-4 frames expand-contract

that animation is pretty smooth. The most interestingly animated piece of all I think. Looking forward to the final version.

Hi there!

I've started to apply colors and shadows... my weak area :P



Only a wip, but i would like to ask for some advice on texturing the sides so it doesn't looks like plastic and more woodlike.

The front right leg is finished, as it pretends to be an iron leg...

Hope to finish in time :)

Well Ht, a wood like texture would most likely show a grain in the wood. Doing so would make it look much nicer.

htdreams, would be great if you could continue working on that even though the challenge is over. It could really benefit from higher contrast.

I'll try to finish it, the problem is i'm better at drawing / animating than coloring :-P

When you said it would benefit from higher contrast, do you meant the wood texture or the dome?

Also i don't like how i shaded the drawer , it's pillow shading and it breaks the overall aspect of the piece...

Any good info on dithering coloring techniques? i know best knowledge comes from hours and hours in observation of good examples and practice... but time is not on my side... i'll try my best :)

Thanks for your encouragement !
