The Prince of Misanthropy
Many winters ago, a man with a heart as cold as snow ruled a castle. One dark night, an old hag came knocking at his door, pleading for protection from the elements. Selfish, he cast her away without a second thought. It was then the hag turned into a young maiden, a witch, transforming the prince into a beast which would reflect his cruel nature. For his greed and cruelty the prince was gifted a rose and warned that he will forever be a beast if he did not find true love before the last petal dropped.
All scenes and pics are from SketchFab, so no fancy materials or lighting. Model is 100% realtime and rigged.

All my textures-
Wish I knew crap about rendering programs...But sadly I do not.
For my version of Beast I wanted to do something more traditional, so from there I just looked up the definition of Beast( creative right?) and it is pretty much, furry creature. While everyone else is reinventing the wheel, I think I'll stay back here trying to get it right maybe explore more later down the road.
From there I simply found art works of lions and other mammals to study their anatomy and musculature and pretty soon I felt motivated and well, created the Beast below- And Zod the Immortal, cause he is awesome.
As for the backstory...I havent wrote it out yet.Though One thing I did want to achieve is focus on the hatred the Beast feels toward the world for what had happened to him. Due to what happened he became untrusting, resentful and eventually began to hate humanity and himself.
-----Go to the end of pages to see how he has changed, doesnt look like a nerd who dropped fritos on his keyboard anymore----http://i.imgur.com/Jto8sqw.png
Then a update on the previous version, not sure which one to use-
...forgot to crop, but I have to work soon so no time T_T
I wanted to go with a more traditional Beast, I always imaged him as being spiteful and angry toward the world for what had happened to him, so I though I would try and explore his rage rather than the sorrow.
Got this pretty good so far, gotta work on a few textures and then onto the real details.
Any criticism would be good.
A bit of a shame you jump into low poly so fast, I would have liked to see the rest of the model explored and developed a bit further, first.
Congrats on your new job, if thats the case
If it is any motivation boost, im sure most of us are also working fulltime, so you wont be put behind because of it
Most the body is going to be covered up with some other parts, I have a ton of polys and UV space left.
Thanks for the comment btw.
Now it is time for the fun to begin.
Good luck in the contest!
Also, added more fur, subtle fur down neck too, need to fix some of the clipping.
Thought I knew what was up with that face sides hair....But no..I do not know.
And thanks! I thought I'd try and go with the view that everyone besides Beauty sees in the Beast, so evil and scary is perfect.
Anyways, played with the settings some more and got this >:D . Hideous right?
And now for a normal update, look at that luscious fur!..Now I get to move onto the parts I haven't shown or talked about. Woot!
Not all fur is in place and there are many missing elements.Like his normal maps.
So any tips on an East but good one to use? Also I need to fix fur on that foot. Something went....wrong.
And that snow took up all my scene polys T_T
Update- made oil, look like..well oil including colors!
