Cartoon Car Done?

A model I was working on from a friend's, Betty Kwong's, concept: Rainbow Road of Awesome.

I'm thinking of calling this done so I can move on to the next project.

Cartoon Car WIP

A model I started working on yesterday from a friend's, Betty Kwong's, concept: Rainbow Road of Awesome.

I struggled with the ink and paint shader in 3ds max and decided to go with a more colour falloff approach instead.

WIP Chibi Self-Portrait Part 4

Some more progress made today.  I got a critique from my girlfriend saying I needed to change the feet a bit so they don't look like hooves.  I'm going to try to finalize this project tomorrow.

WIP Chibi Self-Portrait Part 3

Today I spent some time working on my UVs.  I was also playing with zbrush's polypainting and testing out some colours.  I'm still very new to polypainting (and zbrush in genral).

WIP Chibi Self-Portrait Part 2

Finished poly modeling?  Will spend the next few days uv unwrapping the pieces and taking them into zbrush for some added detailing and fixing some issues with the face.

WIP Chibi Self-Portrait

This started out as a self-portrait based on a concept I did way back, but it evolved beyond the concept (mainly because it didn't make sense in 3d space.)  It's still very much in progress, I haven't finalized the hair/hands in 3ds max.  I also would like to add some more surface detail by bringing this into zbrush and adding some wrinkles to the clothes and maybe some skin details to the face.  Here are some progress shots of the model and a zbrush test of the face to play with some skin alphas and noise.
