Been working on modeling all of the Dragons' Lair Characters, and wanted to share the work in progress. Here's Dirk, currently being worked on. Please let me know what you think!

Thank you much, I was kinda worried about this one. I too am a big fan of hand drawn animation and Bluth / DL / SA, though understand some people can be possessive about their connection to a memory. I first wanted to create a duplicate of the character, but then went off in a slightly different direction. I decided to keep it true to the original design but give it some real world physics also. Again thank you. Singe is gonna be sick.

I was thinking of how funny it would be to have Dirk stumble upon Singe and Daphne's Bubble jail and see Borf in it wearing her outfit. (tastefully funny of course)  I'd really like to work on some SA stuff. Everything I am building has had animation in mind, and I plan on sharing the video work. Most of it is going on my demo.

Here's a newer one. I'm still working on the chin / nose relationship.

Hi Gbowles, and welcome here  Kiss

Hey, what an AWESOME (first) post here  Shocked

Your 3D Dirk model is really great, expect chin/nose relation, but you're still working on it  Smiley

Are you a professional CG modeler? 'coz your work looks very professional!

Did you also have some skill for 3D animation?

Arghhh... I can't wait to see a 'cross over' 3D pictures between Dragon's Lair & Space Ace worlds  Kiss

Thanks for sharing your impressive work with us  Kiss

Thank you so much! Coming from you guys it really means alot. Yes I do animation, but as a freelancer. Once this economy turns around, I am seeking a desk. Smiley I'll have to hit up some of these collectors to furnish said desk with fun things to look at. Smiley

I was thinking as part of my portfolio I could recreate the final scene of Dragon' Lair completely in 3D. As an aside, I am playing with the idea of re-encoding my version of DL (Daphne) with that scene as a playable level. Now I am not sure what legalities exist with that, but I could offer my scene to others for free and let you do the re-compressing. Again, I would do this with complete respect for the original and consider it paying homage to the work that made me want to be an animator. I would love input on this. My wife is a Wizard of Oz fan and the thought of a remake is a catalyst for hysterics. Peace!

Well the scene runs about 45 seconds to a minute, though I haven't timed it out yet. Of course there would have to be the various death scenes for each move as well, I am guessing about 10 of them. Once created certain scenes would be copied then flipped for reversals. I would use the original audio. I am guessing about 3-4 months as I would be doing it alone. Once I get the models built, I'll have a better idea. With all the great comments so far I am very tempted. I need material on my new demo anyhow.

Using a video program called Virtualdub, I am able to shuttle around the DL footage and get reference to build to. This has come in really handy.
