John Blacksad 3D model by ThoRCX John Blacksad 3D model by ThoRCX
Wonder what I wad doing for christmas ? No, not a party, but this : the low poly model of John Blacksad, made for my game project. It will be the game character, and the player will control him. Done with 3ds max 9.

John Blacksad is a character from the comicbook "Blacksad", by Diaz Canales and Guarnido.

The other character, Weekly :

You can check a turn-around video of this model in my demoreel : [link]

This looks excellent!

The detail in the cloth of the coat, shirt and pants are brilliantly done, the colours clash nicely, they're not too much on the eyes, and they definately give off a serious, natured look (if, of course, you ignore the eyes, which kinda scare me, they're the seriousness of serious)

The texture for this looks wonderful, the only thing I would say to maybe change would be the noise on the characters face, due to the colour you've chosen as his Fur/Skin, the noise is quite noticeable, I would say maybe brushing over it with some variation, so that the noise is still there, but the face doesn't seem as flat.

Now that i've gotten the texture out of the way, the poly count for this is rediculously low. I would have said about 2,500 for this character, but you managed to get lower. And that is brilliant, the detail in the cloth really alters the perception of the poly count, and I like that, because you cannot see that it is in fact low Poly.

I really like this peice, you've done very well with it, congratulations. I'll be keeping an eye on your account, from now on.

What do you think?

So you said it would be a game character. Any chance I could get this rigged as a replacement model for the TF2 spy?

I'd sell my blood just to fund a Blacksad point and click game. Preferably made by Telltale.
