SpaG's xmas gift made for the Secret Santa project.
Based on this image on SpaG's website :D
Epic solo by Charlie Parra Del Riego.

Definitely the most complex piece of brushwork I've ever done. Was an absolute blast making it.

RMF included if you want to see the entire tetrahedron mess.

More info in the readme.
Happy holidays & enjoy!

Haha, this was awesome and hilarious, awesilarious! Just love the opening! And the transition! Brushwork was cool too :P.

Did you build the bike in a horizontal position and then rotate it so that it stands on the back wheel? Or did you build it like that right off the bat?

Nice texturing too. I like how the fiber-flow follows the shapes of the bike.

I built it all using the image as a direct reference (i.e. had a wall textured with the drawing directly behind the brushwork), so the bike was standing on its back wheel from the beginning.
Was the only way to get it to look like the drawing & to keep the scale, etc. right. :]

Added some progress shots for those interested.

Ah I see, smart way :). Yeah, rotating that detailed brush work would make 90 % end up off grid and when compiled totally F-d up :P.

If you rotate using the Transform dialog (Ctrl + M in Hammer), it automatically snaps every vertice on-grid for you. It's just a matter of preparing the brushwork for that. ;)

Ha, and you call my work oddball! :P

++lovely snow texture(did you make it urself?)
++Superb construction
+fun/strange merger of a grisly bear and a motorcycle and a santa hat!
+Nice music and effects
+Including the .rmf

I REALLY loved how the terrain and how the scene looked, even if some of the terrain looked blocky. It would be awesome to make a quick aim or fy map out of this =)

Simply gorgeous work and a beautiful addition to the ssanta project!

Haha, good point on the oddball thing. :D

I did make the snow texture, and I totally agree with the terrain ending up blocky. Only had a few hrs to work on that in the end, so it was about as rushed as it could be. Spammed it with a bunch of trees in the end to at least somewhat conceal the blockiness.

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate the feedback :]
