Nomes - evil gnomes

Ben Wood is currently doing a month worth of OZ characters (Oztober). He said to me today "You should do an Oztober pic!!". So, I did a quick search of all the characters in that world and decided to create these 'Nomes' thingy. Apparently they're evil and grey.. so here you go.. :) They can see in the dark pretty well, hence the glowing eyes (like a cat).

On second note, I've uploaded the Tiger sculpt turntable to Vimeo. Some of you might have seen this already, but I thought I should post this up just incase. 3D Sculpt was done by the awesome Paul Braddock. :)

Tiger! from Charles Santoso on Vimeo.

We're planning to do a 3D print and make this guy into a real figurine. :D

Really love the texture of the nomes! Great atmosphere and coloring as usual! Amazing! :)

They look kinda scary, which I like, because it reminds me the scaryness in Coraline.


Junko Miyakoshi said...

Wooo scary looking guys, but they look cute at the same time!
Great characters and colors as always!

Caerphilly: The description of the characters were funny.. Thanks for the visit.

Ted: Heya Ted, good hear your positive respond :) I was going to make it traditionally (super sculpy) but then my friend asked me if he can model it.. so we'll do 3d print instead in the end. I'll do a traditional one for my other character one day.

Danf: Thank you!
