Joker in the pack

It's a lie. There isn't, or rather wasn't, always a joker in the pack. The joker was an American invention that came much later in the story that is the history of playing cards. That's why the joker is often neglected in most card games.

All that aside, the joker is a fun character and was my first choice for our latest assignment: design a playing card.

3D Sydney WIP 3

More updates! I've starting building the set. You'll also notice I've added the braces to Syd's pants. I detest the generic brick texture so I plan to redo it with a more fitting cartoony feel. I will also subdivide the points on the rounded surfaces of Syd's body to remove the geometric feel to the edges.

3D Syd Update

I've rendered the shadows and added a background, mouth, belly button and fingers. I'm really happy about how this is shaping up. This is the sort of 3D work I enjoy. Designs that aren't overly specular and could almost feel like they were made of clay.

I used a page from the first part of Sydney and the reQuest for Eternal Enlightenment as a background.
