The final Model!!!!! Finally. He Exists!!!

This is the finished printed model in all its a glory. Its turned out better than i thought it would for a first attempt at modelling and amazingly i did not have a problem with any parts breaking on the model even after carrying it through the bustling town of stratford to get it to the relative safety of my home.

textures pretty poor!!!










Texturing for the first time has proved difficult and slightly annoying especially because of the spike shapes extruding from willie. I have settled for this for now and will hopefully have time to improve it.

The model is done as you can see i worked hard on as this was my first time modelling and texturing and when i start rigging it will be the first time i have rigged, so this is all new to me. so wish me luck!!!!

The little hedgehog feet!!!!

These re the little and cute hedgehog feet, the feet of a hedgehog are very small and dinky and i have tried to create a accurate representation of the real thing.

arms!!


These are the arms of the character they are very simple but quite child like and works with the chubby character of Willie. They are chubby and small hands very much like hedgehogs.

The nose

This is the nose of the hedgehog i found hedgehogs have a long snout but a very small nostril area which i have modelled here. It seems to work and is shaped nicely in reference to the character designs.

The problems of modelling!!!!


Modelling a character for the time is proving to be more difficult than expected. The problems im having is the fact when i smooth the character the spikes of the Hedgehog are just not "SPIKEY" enough. This means i have to go into every part of of the geometry and maneuver the vertices around which could be a long and very boring process. :( Hopefully i can find a quick way around it and the character begin to take shape because i am new to modelling it can get a bit frustrating :( The hat and bag are pretty much completed though
