New Project: Reflections

Well it has been like for ever since I posted something on my WIP board but here it is. My next 3D scene I am calling: Reflections. I will be modeling the environment, boy and dinosaur as planned in the sketch below. This piece will be considered a "fan art" from the painting and book series Dinotopia by James Gurney. For those of you that know me well you know I have always been a huge dinosaur geek and love James Gurney's work.
This scene his highly inspired from the Dinotopia digest novel: "Dinotopia: Chomper" by Donald F. Glut. My goal is to have everything modeled (low&high poly), textured, rigged and animated for a short 30 seconds then with a looping animation.

For those of you that have read the book I have been using a kid from my home town pool as Perry. I hope to keep it a surprise until I am finished the model of the boy Perry. So those that know him please keep it on the low down.

So far I have finished the base body structure of the boy model. I will be modeling his hair and cloths soon but so far it has taken me about 7hrs to get to here, 10hrs if you calculate searching the internet for images to find simlar body type of a boy between 12-16 from a front and side view. Not bad I guess... but I am hoping to cut the time down with more practice and less searching needed as my gallery of reference images fills.

I will keep you posted as I work on this between work and what not.
