making my first character/kart: firefox

Postby PoketMarty04 » 28 Sep 2022, 18:56

So first: I apologize for my terrible English I don't excel with it.

hello I wanted to make a character for the game, I was inspired by the fantastic works of Ai_ZAQraven and I started blender and tried to see what I could do. it is the first time that I model a character of this type, I have no experience in animation unfortunately, I have always modeled mechanical objects, tanks, planes. I appreciate any kind of criticism and advice (I'm here for this very reason).
I watched the Konqi modeling video and downloaded the model from the REPO to really observe how you (devs) work on this project and keep a style not too distant from yours.


character is inspired by the 2009 and 2017 firefox logo with some ideas taken from the G-fox logo, which was a Chinese variant of firefox from about 2008 and the only logo showing the fox's face that I know of.

(I'm not familiar with this forum, I hope the picture is visible)

here is a picture of the firefox model at the moment with a test texture

let me know what you think of this firefox
is absolutely in WIP almost any change is still possible.
I'm learning things as I go.

Just a friendly reminder the mascot 'Firefox' is trademark and can not be added officially to supertuxkart, puting it as addon is fine

I will let our artist Typhon and Ai_ZAQraven comment.....

Very nice, I'd like to see this one! :)

The only change I can think of is making the fur colours more intense, similar to the logo. Maybe a more furry/spikey tail, either using texture or actual mesh, although that's not as important.

Hi, there. Thank you for your compliment. This is your first to make your first character in my guess, You did great work.
I will just give you some feedback, your character seems to need a good proportion. There is almost no neck on your fox. And I think their arms are too low.

You can always gather some references. Not only real life but also many other cartoon art like Zootopia, Tom and Jerry and etc. Then decide the art-style that you want to use.

Keep it up and never quit.

Thanks for the advices, now he has a neck and the arms are a bit higher, removed some polys and made a new UV map (so has a new texture that I have yet to finish)

I would like to make some kind of fire-fur with textures next. I'm still experimenting with that
