A Row of White Neepers by Bobbie-the-Jean A Row of White Neepers by Bobbie-the-Jean
This is my first artwork completed using Blender in my workflow. It took me about 14 hours give or take. I sculpted up the birds, leaves, branches, and berries in Zbrush, set the scene up and rendered it in Blender, then did all the detailing in Photoshop. I saw this picture of a bunch of little birds sitting on a branch [link] and the overwhelming cuteness compelled me to create a piece of artwork despite being miserably sick with the flu. And of course it looks nothing like the original image. =P

This workflow still has a few kinks that need ironing, the main kink being that I'm still learning Blender and there is much I don't know. But so far, I am liking the addition of Blender to my repertoire. It's not nearly as gnarly as the last time I tried it. Thank the gods those Blendudes at Blender overhauled that awful UI. I still say it could use a little tweaking here and there but I like it and that's saying something because I'm coming from Maya so you KNOW I am spoiled as all hell.

Are they friendly? Because I want one. I'll feed it, cuddle it and name it Squeak and we'll be best friends forever.

Even the name is fun to say. Neeper...*giggle*

U hav one? And also, where did u come up with both neeper drawings backgrounds? They're delicate and amazing, the colors included.

I made everything up. :) It just comes out of my imagination. I wish neepers were real but alas, they are not.

Aww xD c I'm kinda stupid when it comes to knowledge about neepers. Luv ur lil critters; u shud include them in more fantasy drawings like forests. :O u shud make an underwater type of neeper! That would be adorable. You shud make it swimming playfully next to a dolphin, in a coral reef
