An actual update for a change...sort of

I've made some progress with some of the CG characters from Malice. Mostly a very minor background character I nicknamed Cthulhu Jr. He'll only be on screen a few seconds here and there in 2, maybe 3 scenes - all depends on how they're edited, which they're not at the moment.

This is just a roughly done composite, there's still a bit of work on the texture and just how he'll be added into the shots. But otherwise, he's come a long way from some of the previous versions.

Cthulhu Jr. is ready for his closeup.

The remaining characters to do are The Titan, which is already modeled - baring any issues with texturing him he should be nearly done. The Demon - from the opening sequence, the one I've had the most trouble setting on a design of - is finally designed and ready to be modeled. And he's going to be an ugly little bugger, even if he only looks half as good as the designs.

I'll also be doing CG stuntmen for some actors, I've been working on the one for Malice, it's coming along. I need another pass at the clothing textures and redoing the head is a strong possibility. It's not too bad at the moment, considering she'll never be any larger then 1/4th of the screen, it won't be used in any really bright scenes and will usually be moving pretty fast to notice any possible imperfections that might show up.

I hate having to quality it like that, but at the moment that's how it stands. Unless I end up with a near perfect final version, I'm at least happy with what I have to work with at the moment.

There's still some work to do, but it's coming along.

I'll even be doing CG versions of the Demon Army characters. Well, one really - they all look alike.

Lastly there's Mal'Vash. He's all designed, as I think I mentioned before and he'll be last on the list to work on. I want to make sure I know as much about what I'm doing as possible before trying to work on him.
