This is a Chinese themes symbol frame. I used the ZModeler to extrude out the initial shapes. then Mirror Welded on the X axis and again on the Y. After Lasso Selecting the flat front surface I Panel Looped the shape to have a slight bevel.
Started with a super low poly cylinder and played around with the Slice Curve Tool to create edges. The Crease to define sharper areas and Edge Loop to bevel/extrude polygons. I subdivided a few times just to get a polished object to post.
Since this month's challenge was an 8-Bit "pixel art" theme, I only felt that it was appropriate to add another 80's Pop Culture reference to an already 80's pop culture reference. So I made my 8-bit art classic D&D monsters:
So, from the left to right, we have a Carrion Crawler, Beholder, Rust Monster, and Owl Bear.
Also keep in mind that you can see much more REFINED "pixel art" of mine at my website, www.ConceptCreature.com. :)
