I can’t seem to stop making Frankenstein pigs! Anyway, I decided to model up this guy in 3d. I think he’d make a swell toy.  Click on MORE for some “making of” stuff.

Here’s the original drawing.  I changed him a little in the move to 3d, but hopefully kept his character and charm and wit.

Here’s the unsmoothed model. I kept it pretty simple, just like me!

Here’s the smoothed model. Don’t you just want to squeak his nose?

Here’s his texture map. I wanted him to have a nice Frankensteinian green, and yet also retain some piggy pink.

And here’s the final image again. Wheeee!

For some reason this makes me wonder what frankenbacon would taste like. Is that so wrong?

Oh, how I would love to have this as a squeaky toy. Your design is so fun.

You definitely kept the charm, but I’m not sure about the wit. “WIT” is not a character trait I would use to describe this guy.

Yance, hotdogs are kind of like frankenbacon…

Doug, the question is, would Daisy like to have a frankenpig squeaky toy?

Brian how about focus? Did I keep his focus?

i need a toy of this now.

Hey, cool. Which program do you use,… I thought it was Maya, but I’m not sure. I think this would make a great squeaky toy!!

Hey Mike, once my toy designs hit the big time you’ll be the first to know! 🙂

Chris, I did indeed use Maya. Rendered with Mental Ray.

I like using maya for 3D, although I haven’t used it since version 5. Of all the 3D packages I’ve tried, Maya is the one I prefer. I’d like to get back to using it one of these days.

Hah! I would love to see some short animations with the little guy. He would be an awesome toy! Bryan, he looks like he is REALLY focusing. And I agree, hotdogs are the Frankenbacon.

I want him as a toy! 😀

By the way, Bryan, I am learning Maya, did you use polygonal surfaces to model him?

Muffin, some day, mark my words, some day!

Manny, yep, I used polygons to model most of him. His eyes and eyelids are nurbs though.

wish i lived closer, if so i’d force you to teach me 3D! I love how you do it. 🙂
I used to not like 3D at all until I saw your stuff, Bryan.

perfect toy for halloween! 😀
what about a Vampig?!! 😉
that would be cool in your pencils/3d!

Muffin, if you’re ever in Indiana for 4 months, you could take on of my 3d classes! You’d be great at it.
Bruna, yes, a Vampig!

Between this one and the “teeth” contributions, I’m getting hungrier by the minute. I love this…his expression is so spot-on. I would buy hundreds of squeaky toys.
