View Full Version : Beast of Burden - Character/contraption - TRi-14

07-04-2002, 01:17 AM
My first CG Talk challenge. Here we go. This concept is a "play" / trying to get an idea concept. (Or to get a new forum started) I will have updates soon. This is not actual concept art. Just something to get me going.. :lightbulb .( And i really dont draw like that)

I have taken a new approach at this challenge, as you see. My new model is somewhat original (for what is done with it so far). I tried to get away from the repetitive look that everyone else is doing. Hope you enjoy it so far.

An aquatic BoB is a great idea. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

Basic Body shape is coming along. Much much more detail is to come! (bad jpeg compression, sorry) :wip: :wip: :wip:

It's looking good! Cool concept.

I would recomend making the teeth separate objects or model creases to show where they begin.

Keep up the good work!

Very nice. It looks a lot better than your sketch ;)

That's cool. Is it towing a mine?

my BOB is not complete, if thats what some of you may be thinking, THe object he is pulling is not the final 'contraption' either. it will be much more detailed and so will the Beast. I am trying to get the basic shapes of the model complete so i can add detail. thanks for all the comments..

-you will find out what he is pulling soon enough :beer: -

ok....thats not cool at all...i didnt send you that mesh so you could use it in a challenge and claim it to be your own. what a shame......

care to explain this tri-14 ??

cause this stuff is the very 1st element of disqualification [if that is applicable in such a challange]

so better explain this fast . . .

Not only is it against the challenge rules, but stealing is also just downright immoral.
Please explain yourself, TRi-14...

LOL ! Well, I don't know what's going on here but the model shown at that link ( http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=13833&highlight=sattelite ) is clearly NOT THE SAME model as appears in this thread. And the model shown here is so simple that it would be easier to create it from scratch than to reduce the one shown in the sattelite thread!

Oh, I admit, the similarities are unmistakable, but so are the differences: The tentacles have fewer bends and do not bend as sharply; and the place where the tentacles join the sphere are totally different.

I would also be interested to know why Array sent the model to someone who didn't even post in his thread. :surprised

So, Array, Tri-14, what's the story?

Ok, this is what’s up...

I have seen the satellite model before, and helped him fix some problems with it. i have been building the contraption roughly and its not even close to being done. The metal tentacle things on the back are going to be seaweed or some organic material. The contraption he is pulling is not official yet and when finished will look 99% different than it does now. Sorry for all the problems and miss understanding.. This is not a stolen model.. and I have built everything in this BOB of mine from scratch (a single cube primitive or sphere)
;) :)
and i am sure you all understand how models start out looking very rough to sculpt out the basic shape.....

My apologies to all that were confused...

Very nice model, but I'm not sure about the thing you've put it on! Might be better in a water scene!!:D

Just my two cents. Well five cents actually, because you can't get 2 cents in this country anymore!:p
