View Full Version : Speed modeling session : theme : posed figure study


mv
01-19-2004, 12:12 PM
The theme for this session (until friday 23 january) is to model and pose a whole figure, focusing on silhouette, pose, attitude, balance, and expressiveness.
Due to the three hour limit, you will forced to lessen the detail (or you're really quick), so try to concentrate on the overall shape and expression; low poly, "sculpty" models are welcome.

3 hours modeling and posing, start from scratch. (ref searching and rendering not included)
Provide with wires (non subdivided) , different views and tell what soft you're using.

Have fun!

Oh this is going to be a challenging and learnful one,well at least for me and that's what's so good about it.

Free softwares that can do "poses",for wings users and the humble rest...

I think this is Wiro's meat, where is he anyway?

Ibox
01-19-2004, 02:32 PM
he's running, what's more to say :D :D ... I am joking here with this example of course...

seriously, could somebody post a decent example of just what is to be expected in this here challenge... I am just a rooky modeler, and really have no experience in this kind of stuff... the posing thing... how far do we go with it... do we light it up.. re the silohette thing... etc. etc... I do want to play in this here challenge, just don't quite understand the whole concept is all...

anybody?

will we use bones or model the character in that pose? ... or just whatever suits you the best?

mv
01-19-2004, 04:47 PM
Ibox : it's almost it, just take two more hours to detail a bit and give him more... character

Hexodam: do as you wish!

Ibox
01-19-2004, 05:44 PM
Hey thanks for attempting to clear things up some there m@... I think I will just hang around some and see what all of you guru's come up with... hehe... couldn't resist one more stab at humor :D

ah man, it's been a long night eh... so please forgive me :)

seriously, I can hardly wait to see what everyone will do with this here challenge... I have some ideas... just not sure yet how far to go... anyways, see yas when I wake up... :thumbsup:

I'm in, but does it have to be a human?

Can I make a Centaur for example?

Edit spelling :banghead: woops.

mv
01-19-2004, 06:52 PM
gabe : well the focus here is not on the originality of the character, but on the mood and feeling that his stance and expression gives... so I think it would be simpler with a biped... you can do a centaur for the generic speed modelling thread though .

01-19-2004, 08:24 PM
This is most definately a job for ZBrush!
I'm all over this one.

PS- Never knew of blender or GMax and I'll tell you I am floored but skeptical.....we'll see. Some good support lnks would be much appreciated.
Thanks,

Rock out yall!
This is going to be wicked fun! :beer: :applause: :bounce:

Let's see what I can cook up. :)

AJ, good one, now I am understanding a bit more about just what was to be expected... looking forward to this here challenge heating up... :)

cool thread. I already got a idea for a pose, but I got a test for tomorow. IŽll se if I can start modeling in school tomorow.

Hexodam, he's clearly using smoothing groups.

This is an interesting idea, I might be in later.

Here is a tip to all you modellers ,

Check your pose by checking the alpha channel of your image , if the black and white image reads clearly than your pose is clear , if not go back and work it out.


cheers

I remember that from the spiraloid forum. I've promised myself to work on the last few speed modelling challenges. But its exam time..and that means its time to crunch.

So...I'm pretty much doing that recently. Hope to do something this weekend when I will none of this pressure..heh..

All ZBrush. All 3D and Polys. No ZBrush tricks here save the power of Zifs (ZSpheres).

2 hours and 15 minutes modeling and posing. 30 for the zif and the rest was playing around. I actually trashed 4 other poses...didn't fit...

ok, here is my try. i had one sketch i found on the net. usually i dont like guns, but i found the pose/attitude interesting. All made from scratch, no skinning. I modeled the dude the way he is. I've lost a lot of time on the head and i couldn't tweak the muscles and the cloth folds to make them look better... as you can see, i modeled mostly by cutting and adding edges. the mesh is total mess but it works... :) I used Lightwave and Ideka tools plugins to make it. at the beginning i was totally affraid of not having enough time to make it but finally it was ok, just in time thought i wanted to tweak more.... i really enjoyed making it and i hope you'll like it... tell me what you think plz. if i have time, i'll try with another pose... :bounce:

Hello everyone. It's been months since I've lasted posted here. A few days ago, I've modelled a "thing" for a friend. It's been quite fast modelling .. And I saw this today. So I thought that this probably does fit here.

So anyways,
I spent 2 hours 47 min. for this "thing". (modelling + rigging)

Sincerely

wow, thanx ! This is the first time i get comments about one of my speed modelling tries. I'm happy that you like it! this thread is really challenging!

Libor : thanx! i tried to be really fast. but at the beginnning, since i don't really know my possibilities in speed modelling, i was not sure to be able to finish it...(i hope this sentence does make sense) i'm happy i did.

swag : thanx, but u know, the sketch i found was really good, so i just made half of the work about the pose... :D

m@. : thanx, that's an honour you like it, your work is extremely expressive.(hope this sentence is correct in english...) tes models ont toujours une qualité pro, surtout dans les autres speed threads, c'est carrement impressionnant !

AJ_23 : i really like the cartoony attitude of your little dude!

Mahlikus : your poses are really cool! i really like the dude about to jump in the hole!

opus13 : yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

RobertoOrtiz : your dude is nice , but the poses are not very expressive... maybe u can use reference pics to get the pose, it really helps a lot.

BigSky : haha, the model is quite simple but your poses are really excellent! :D

geoMan : THANX!

akocan : strange but nice!

this thread is a great modelling exercice!
thanx for the nice comments everyone!

-OZ- , DimitrisLiatsos , dies-irae , ghZaaaRK : thanx! i'm glad you like it! as ghZaaaRK said, the sketch was made by G. Pradel a french artist. when i found the sketch long time ago, i just saved the picture on my hard drive and forgot who did it... i'm happy someone could tell me who made it because i have several others like this one from the same artist! about the 3d style i used, i was very inspired by Jeremy E.Engleman. Go here to see his 3d figure paintings. (http://art.net/~jeremy/cg/fp_oct29.html#img) what he does is totally incredible! though he uses smoothed polys i prefered to keep them unsmoothed for my dude...
THANX EVERYBODY !

Okat what software (modeling/rendering) are you using and how do you make those delicious poly renders..:drool:
Also, and I 'd hate to ask too much but, is there any chance you could make a timelapse vid of you modeling...it would teach tons...Looks like you only use quads. If no its cool. The pics help tons anyway.

well for modeling i use maya with Byrons Poly Tools :buttrock: and some custom scripts that i wrote in mel.

im thinking of doing some videos for BPT but i dont know if ill have time. if i do ill send them to Byron and maby put them on his site.

as for rendering they are just screengrabs ;) maya has a very nice smooth wireframe in the viewport that kills anything that i have seen. i just set the viewport backround color and fiddle with the color and incandesence on a phong and hit "PrintScrn". rendertime is always 1/100th of a second! take it into PS and shrink it and play with it a little. and there ya go.
hope that helps.

Cool yeah it does. Might take a look into Maya LE now. I love wings3D but I am now very interested in learning a professional package but am not too sure what to devote my time to. Max, Maya, Lightwave...they also have to have a free version or demo too like gmax. Right now, its a toss up between maya and lighwave. If anyone has some advice or suggestions, could you PM me. Don't want to get off topic here.

Thanks again.

BTW-Sent you a PM Brook.:thumbsup:

i wanted to participate with the last speedmodeling but had not too much time... but i thought i try this one.
so here they are....

the Theme is "Surfing" (as you wil have noticed!!!):rolleyes:

time spend:

-1 hour and 20 minutes of pure modelling
-1 hour and 15 minutes of rigging and tweaking..
- the rest to fill the 3 hour limit was spent for posing

hope you like it....

FranckSitbon
01-21-2004, 09:10 PM
using maya:
select some Edges
then choose soften harden and put the value to 0

With max:
select ur edges
put the smoothing group to 0

So I gave it a try, out of curiosity: Box, extrude, extrude, extrude :)

Gave it a neck, arms, legs.

Added bones and attached the mesh to the skeleton.

Added IK to the legs.

To my surprise, I could move the IK effectors and the mesh deformed.

Time: 40 minutes.

It's ugly. Horrible. I won't post it because it would be embarrasing. Still, I'm happy, because it was the first time I ever did anything in Maya (PLE), and 40 minutes is decent IMHO considering that I had to figure out first where to find all these functions.

Hi!

These forums are the best ones I've ever seen so far, all I can say is: you guys............you..............you're good you!

Tried a little bit myself. Couldn't complete it in 3 hours though (sorry 'bout that) infact it took me 4 hours to model this crappy charachter, Could anyone help me find a descent rigging tutorial?
Cause I just couldn't bone this playa. Not in three hours...

After sleeping a night over it, I figured - what the heck. It's only the internet, the worst that can happen is that a million people laugh about my work ;)

Here's what I had after 40 minutes of Maya PLE. The mesh is horrible, the pose doesn't express anything, the rig doesn't even fit properly. But a speed modeling session is a fun way of learning a new app.

Patience. I am working on 4 high res characters at once, all with facial rigs. Will come eventually.

Pierdziele - :eek: :buttrock: :bowdown:

This thread/forum has to be the best mesh source I have come across. Speed Session Forum Rocks!

Okay a question off topic...snyone have any suggested reading (book) that I can purchase that deals with lowpoly and/or subdivision modeling techniques (but not with only tris ...meesa hates tris). Thanks.

Peace

It was hard to find a really interesting pose. Anyway, this was my first attempt to rig a character using "biped" in 3ds max 4. Reading about how it's done and tweaking envelopes made me use the entire 3 hours.

What came out is a guy that's pretty much pleased with himself and enjoy the finer things in life :)

well finally here it is .. it took ,4.5 hrs. .so i went over time but hell i wasnt about to quit at 3..

1.5 hrs model
.5 hrs build rig
2 hrs to skin
.5 to pose

well this is my first speed effort at completely making and rigging a character so im mildly pleased although i had a bit of trouble skinning him .. and i havent touched max bones in over a year so i had a bit to relearn i got there in the end.. let us know what u think..

oh yeah model, rig and posed using max 6 editable poly, max bones and skin modifier

and thrown together in photoshop for good measure

What a wonderful topic :)

ca. 2 hours modeling and 54 minutes rigging, posing and lighting.

Done in Cinema 4D.

Rigging was done with the help of the Bonderland Plugin.

I used automapper for a quick weighting of the bones.
Then i just had to adjust a few weights. ;)

Hello all,
Congrats to everyone great work in this thread. Heres my try. I stoped at 3hrs but didn't get to the stage I wanted. Any C&C would be apreciated. Modeled in Wings and rendered in max.:) Thanks to brook kievit for the tip on rendering this style.:beer: http://stickman3d.tripod.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/speedkungfucg.jpg

Hi. here is my model. Disco Stud :) I was inspired by Pierdziele and BnE models. Took me 3 hours to complete. If I had good concept sketch, I would probably make it better.

Now this is fun!
Modeled in Silo, 2 hrs 25 mins. No rigging - it's all modeled (as you can probably tell by the detached legs). :) Rendered in POV-ray.

P.S. - she's a little teapot.

here is my go at it.. 2.8 h for modeling and pose in lightwave
it was a great exercise, not to care about faults in the mesh but try and make the best out of it..
