Okey that's my start cause I have lots of work I hope it's not LATE :))))...
about the story :
the frame shows two races. THe first one are THE HAKES they are one of the most huge races in the galaxy "Tearon" which is very far away from the milk way :) but they own some great planet and environment which is very useful from all other populations cause the hake's planet is full with Blue crystals (the crystals are like the water for us) . they are under attack and the frame shows how they'r dying from the Mech Soldiers of the "Yudane".. the Yudanes are small population and really little planet somethn like the earth but they have on of the hugiest armies in the galaxy cause all the units they build are mechanical soldiers... OK Stop talkin and let's see How they gonna look.. I can't wait to finish this contest cause I really like the topic and hope to don't dissapoint myself... THANKS ALL SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT LITTLE BIT :)

11-27-2004, 11:34 AM

Okey that's an shader test of the main ground material. This will be the main surface on the ground , but not the whole ground will be reflective like that! it will be mixed with different stones and dust. Thanks CIAO :)

12-03-2004, 11:08 AM
for more information That Blue Stone will be the main reason of that WAR betwean "The Hakes" and "The Yudanes"
the frame shows two races. THe first one are THE HAKES they are one of the most huge races in the galaxy "Tearon" which is very far away from the milk way :) but they own some great planet and environment which is very useful from all other populations cause the hake's planet is full with Blue crystals (the crystals are like the water for us)
SOrry for my bad english :) I Know you understand mE Thanks Ciao

12-03-2004, 12:36 PM
Very nice material!

This mech model is really looking pretty cool, you are working quickly too. I like the flying mech robot idea. No real crits , keep up the great job. :thumbsup: It would be nice to see a bit more of how the scene will look but I am sure that will come later.

12-06-2004, 08:37 AM

12-06-2004, 10:26 AM
Nice,very nice,,,,you have some fine skills Yavor,and the potential with this is on high.....Keep at this as you are,looking very nice......Clean and smooth,just think about a touch of non-symetrical modeling near the end,give it at least a touch of unbalanced polish...that of course is a taste thing........go at it strong..........:arteest: :cool:

12-06-2004, 03:10 PM
thanks for the nice words mates I'm really happy that you like it.

12-08-2004, 08:26 PM

Tell her that if you win you will give her the copy of SoftimageXSI :D
I haven't heard of a girl that would say no to such an offer :deal: :buttrock: (and you would be able to keep the BOXX for yourself)

12-08-2004, 09:06 PM
YEAH I'm sure she will be so happy... she's gonna watch it like a monkey at front of a TV :banghead: :-) hahah

no now serious the cg is my real love at this time when I'm with her I think only about that when I go home and make the rest of the body of my robo :thumbsup:

12-08-2004, 09:42 PM

12-08-2004, 10:03 PM

that is a real cg freak:twisted: I think taht I would choose my boyfriend than working on 3d. But on the other hand I'm just a begginer and can't make such great thinkgs as you can. Maybe If someday I learn it, he will leave me for some hot blonde who cannot even turn the computer on... anyway great work here! I like your modeling. Abd this shader is amazing! can you give some tips for the begginer how to make such things...?

12-09-2004, 11:38 AM
Great modelling :thumbsup:

I like the concept. Keep going and good luck.

12-09-2004, 06:22 PM
This is looking beautiful, no other word for it!
I really like that ground texture you did with the blobby blue thing a few pages back.
Bummer about the girl. Hopefully you will find a different person that appreciates your amazing tallents, that or the old one will come back and learn to support you and your artwork. Until then, ya gots to go all out for 3D!!!:buttrock:

That robot is looking really good. I think I have to put a lot more of work on my "beautiful killing machines" if I want to stand a chance :bowdown:

12-10-2004, 06:50 AM
She dumped you because of this? She's out of her mind...but so is every other girl I bet. Sigh...you lose some you win some I guess.

Model's great, looks like one of those stone gargoyles, robot style. Great work as always!


12-10-2004, 07:20 AM
keetmun -> Yeah :) funny story because she needs more time with ME. But however I have at the moment a girlfriend and her name's "3ds MAX 6.0" :). Thanks about the nice words my friend , luck in your work too.

nemirc -> thanks a lot my friend I see you have progress also keep going.

12-10-2004, 09:51 AM
Hi Yavor,

Very nice modelling and your shader material is very effective too, but will be interestde to see how you integrate it all into the one scene.

Good luck


12-10-2004, 11:50 AM
Ouch I see this only now and.... :buttrock: that's a beutiful design... I wait to see more :applause:

Okei I finished and the legs actually Not finished I will change the legs the arms the whole body ( I have lots of work on the body). I HOPE YOU LIKE IT !!! :_)

12-10-2004, 02:31 PM
How he would bend his legs...? but the general look is great. I especially like the feet design(by this part which I can see)

12-10-2004, 02:45 PM
hey arturro thanks for that critique I really appraise it. I will work on the legs more :) thanks man. GL

12-10-2004, 02:55 PM
Hey Divaise,

The model is looking great, the lower leg(from knee to ankle) looks to big and bulky.If you made this area look more slimer and emphasize a calf muscle it would help out I think.
Looking good though.:thumbsup:
My GSO entry

12-10-2004, 03:03 PM
thanks my friend mmoir for the critique. I will definitely work on that part of the leg. Thanks and Good Luck in your work Btw nice updates. :P Ciao :thumbsup:

12-10-2004, 03:17 PM
i think that legs are to long...

12-10-2004, 03:47 PM
wow , your model look cool!! and i agree that the lower leg is a bit too big!
great work ! keep going!

12-10-2004, 03:55 PM
thanks for the critiques friends I will work especially in the lower part :) that's not the final model so.. it's very fast simulation of leg I worked at it about 2 , 3 hours. Thanks a lot mates and GL :thumbsup:

12-10-2004, 11:12 PM
Hello DVS

Cool robots! I Like them a lot in their non textured stage

Post a front view with open wings! it would be great! :thumbsup:

12-10-2004, 11:16 PM
Yeah man I'm now working on the poses I hope I will post them in the next 1-2 days. Thanks for the reply. I Wish you luck man

12-10-2004, 11:19 PM
hey Climax I'm a big fan of your "death of the apple" I love this artwork I've watched it a lot of times and I love it. :) respect you man :thumbsup: I love your works

12-11-2004, 08:34 PM
Hi there Yavor!
I mean whoah! Now this is one hell of a character Youwe made! Excelent!
But, Youwe definetly gonna have to modify the legs a little cause now they wouldnt flex. Everything else is good :)
Thumbs up!

12-12-2004, 12:40 PM
Kaksht , thanks man for the nice words I will surely work on the legs , but in the next 4-5 days I don't have an pc because I'm not in home because of my university :( I can't wait to continue my work . I wish ya luck.

12-13-2004, 07:44 AM
Hello Divaise! I see you're progressing! Your character works great so far! :thumbsup: I won't say that the legs are a bit off...I see them as stylized.
The whole form of this character works well to me! I think the textures will really boost him!

Waiting for updates! :)

Okei I'm back... I continue to bored you with my stuff :) Now I start texturing the head it's very fast work so it's not perfect I will change the textures a lot in future but that's the first try I do :) Hope you like it

12-16-2004, 12:15 PM
Great! I like it a lot, how long it rendered? My only advice now is to make a bigger bump... I mean the white and grey areas... the border should be more visible there. Now it's not very clear that this white are is a shiny poolished paint, and the grey are is something which is under the paint. So move the white areas further with bump...

12-16-2004, 12:27 PM
Wow, that's excellent work Divaise.

Great design and nicely modelled aswell, texture also seems very nice so far.

Keep it up! :)

12-16-2004, 12:32 PM
Nice start on the textures Divaise! :thumbsup:

I like the "used metal" touch! I think you need some glow in the eye sockets!!

Waiting for more!

12-16-2004, 12:42 PM
I like it a lot man... Just one comment... reduce the exposure of the hdri map because it looks a little too reflective at the time... Other than that :bowdown:

12-16-2004, 12:49 PM
thanks for the nice words, about the eyes terraarc you're right :) I will add some cool glow in the next update , about the reflective yeah thanks icedeyes I will make the white material less reflective. THank to all of you

12-16-2004, 01:04 PM
Hey Divaise,

I really like the texture so far, I like how you have scratches only where the protective coating has come off of the armor. Very nice. Keep at this ,it is great so far.:thumbsup:

12-16-2004, 01:55 PM
Hi Yavor!
Whoah, now this is one hell of a render :scream: Realistic as it gets, those textures are awesome!!!
Well, maybe those "pipes" in his neck should have a diferent color, something like sand, but dunno...
Anyways, this rocks :thumbsup:

12-16-2004, 02:22 PM
i envy those texture renderings. very clean and well thought. yes i agree.... it's Realistic.

12-16-2004, 03:27 PM
Woah... I see this is going to be some tough competition :eek:
Its a good thing I am not striving for photorealism, hehehe.

I have to get drunk inmediately :twisted: :beer:

BTW take a look at mine. I've added a couple of updates as well :beer:

12-16-2004, 04:08 PM
Hi Divaise

Interesting texture, I like the new one as I think the old one is, looks to leather
its progressing well

check my link

paul p patina


12-16-2004, 04:09 PM
Wonderful! really great! do you wan't to have such photo-real effect at the end? it's very hard to achieve such effect on whole scene. I can't wait to see him finished... I can imagine his poses.. really amazing!

12-16-2004, 04:42 PM
I really thanks to all of you for the nice words.. :) I will try to make the whole scene on that quality but I'm not sure about the final result I hope to have some luck. thanks again you make me feel inspired really friends. :love:

12-16-2004, 05:21 PM
As I said before: a very tough competition indeed :twisted:
I can't wait to see the finished image. This one will surely be a killer :thumbsup:

Okei an big step... now I show you my concept idea about how the fianal image may look. It's not the final variant but I have somethink in my mind like that... I do this very quick and I used some dragon CATs cause it's similar like my robo... The Image will be a few soldiers in focus staying on a big rock and ready to go fly... and a few flying soldiers. and at back I will model the city with all the buildings and ships which attack the city and a lot of explosions and one big ship "The Mother" somewhere in back (it's not located on the picture) and lots of little ships in action. On the backgroud will be placed some planets.

THat's the far idea... it's just some concept the final image may be very different. Thanks.

12-16-2004, 07:01 PM
well... one small step for us but giant for u! :)
i like this concept... just add more stuff ... spaceships... :)

12-16-2004, 07:26 PM
yeah :) but that's just some boxes I did in an half an hour I just show my general look I will add a lot of stuff.. but I hope my pc could render that scene cause I've only 512 ddr but on the holidays I think to buy some GB up :)

12-16-2004, 07:29 PM
yeah ... i have 512 sdr.... not ddr but sdr... i didnt change my computer for 3 years... i plan on buying now new mobile phone ( nokia 6670 ) so... i will have to w8 for a couple of months... :) for new computer :)
anyway good luck!

12-16-2004, 07:36 PM
:deal: you could buy just the memory ( 256 RAM ) and upgrade your pc it's not very expensive ! about the phone I will buy also I think about ericsson T630 ,,, EMmmm about the pc I will take it temporary because I will work on my NEW BOX :) after the challenge:))))))) Just kiding :thumbsup: :)

12-17-2004, 06:28 AM
that's a awesome looking droid you have there, no crits man.. simply amazing stuff

keep it up!

12-17-2004, 06:42 AM

12-17-2004, 06:50 AM
...EMmmm about the pc I will take it temporary because I will work on my NEW BOX :) after the challenge:)))))))...
Now that's what I call positive thinking :bounce:
But I wonder if they are giving away one one BOXX and I am the one that will get it, how come that you will get one too :curious:

Cheers :beer:

12-17-2004, 06:54 AM
hehe Okei JUST Give Me The Monitor :) Just kiddin now seriously I finished the character now I start building the City I will model every buillding and show it to you , then the big ship "The mother" then the small ships and the rest of the environment and (woah it's already 17 jan) :))) I hope to finish in time :)

12-17-2004, 07:13 AM
Nice scene Divaise! :thumbsup: Man there are a lot of stuff in there that want to be modeled! (I imagine them screaming: "Hey DVS! Pick me! Pick me!" "Shut up you stupid box! Pick me! Pick me!"....something like the sea-gulls in Finding Nemo "Mine!" "Mine!"...hehe)

I like the overall scene look and waiting for you to feed more my imagination with wonderful models! :thumbsup:

I usually send a spoon of gallic potion....I think I'll send you the whole marmite for eternal energy and strength...

Wish you the best on your grande effort! :bounce:

12-17-2004, 11:15 AM
haha yeah my friend :) I have so much thinks to do , and the time is running fast... but I hope everythink will be allright I'm so cuirous about that challenge because there's so many great entrys can't wait to see the FINAL :)

12-17-2004, 11:20 AM
Looking good there Yavor.

Cant wait to see the textured version of your ANGEL dude!

REmember, only 1 month left!

Good luck!

12-17-2004, 12:01 PM
Too bad i have missed that thread before :(
really superb work! Those evil flying robodragonas are super. I like the way you have modelled wings and how those are connected to bodies !

12-17-2004, 12:07 PM
hey my friend :) I'm sorry that I missed your work mann you have some great and inspiring stuff also :) thanks for the nice words I wish ya all best and good luck

12-17-2004, 01:00 PM
Hi Yavor,

Bac kto check on your thread and like the concept youve posted. What are they looking at? What is the big event unfolding? Sorry if I've missed it but its not clear in your concept and it may want a little emphasis.

Love the droid tho. Very nice...


12-17-2004, 01:08 PM
Very, very cool idea. I am liking your work very much so far. It shows great motion and positioning. Even with just skeletons you can already visualize the potential outcomes.. Keep it up!

12-17-2004, 10:16 PM
wow.......... gona be one hell of a image .. mad skills you have... yes... mad...

12-18-2004, 10:31 AM
actually the big event in the image will be the biggest ship "Mother". That ships destroys the buildings with lighting lasers somethink like "independent-day" but not exactly this will be somethink unique and lots of small ships war all over the place and about those droids they'r going to mess with the rest they prepare for joining the battle :))) that's it I think

12-18-2004, 10:32 AM
sorry for my english I hope to understand me :shame:

12-18-2004, 08:12 PM
First off your English is fine,dont worry about that at all.......:thumbsup: .....................Your concept is wild,and interesting.You have a nice plan Yavor.........very good skills.............Just think pivotal moment,action,and eye candy galore,as I see you are.............Your doing a very nice job,work hard and well,keep it in the fast lane................:buttrock:

Hey Yavor,
The texturing looks pretty good so far, nice building too.

12-22-2004, 04:55 AM
Ho hooooo....It's all coming together now. U work really fast man, I like the way the buildings turned out. There's lots more to go, but looks like you're gonna finish it anyway!

Cheers man

12-22-2004, 08:17 AM
yeah I will try. THe Buildings will be really low poly cause I don't have much memory and they will be not on the main focus of the picture.

12-22-2004, 09:11 AM
Nice going mate! I like your texturing technique....:)

Go! Go! Go! (I have to do that part also....:D)


12-22-2004, 02:15 PM
Hey I really like the way those buildings and the texturing are coming together. I was also planning on using lowrez buildings since they are very far away.

Keep up the good work.

okey some update with the environment OKEY I KNOW that those trees at front are ugly I just forgot to change the bitmaps in the next update everythink will be fine :P
I really HOPE to become you guys like this city :-(

12-26-2004, 11:48 PM
Nice updates DVS! :thumbsup: I think you could use some variation on the city though....Lighting could benefit some "love" too...to bright me thinks....Trees and fog looks good!

Waiting for some more... :)

12-27-2004, 06:17 AM
Nice realistic approach. Bet this will be a cool, gothic type final.

my 3d entry (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=179803)

12-27-2004, 06:50 AM
you are right, those trees are ugly :beer: :D
good to know the next update will include the improved trees

I am not sure about that mountain on the backgrond. It looks too white :eek:
On the other hand, the city looks awesome

12-27-2004, 09:19 AM
Thanks for the nice words friends actually yeah it's too white because of the fog but I will try variations about the trees in front I changed them already I was just too lazy to re-render ;). I continue to add some more stuff thanks.

12-27-2004, 11:51 AM
Beautiful beautiful city you got. I guess enough has been said about the bg. But I feel the city seems to lose its realism at the sides, compared to the middle portion. But that's probably because you're not done yet.


12-27-2004, 01:17 PM

You have been busy,your city and landscape look great. Maybe adding another layer of distant hills or mountains just being visible to add some more depth. Its looking great :thumbsup:

I PRESENT YOU THE BIGGEST SHIP IN THE CHALLENGE hehe ;P Just kiddin ! I start modelin the biggest ship in my scene ;-)SORRy for the bad quality of the image but I hate to wait longer for wip pics :-( so the texture will be better in the final image Thanks again P

12-28-2004, 05:28 PM
I'm going to make a lot of changes on that model So give me some critiques and advices please cause I can't figure out how it loks by myself ! Thanks friends

12-28-2004, 05:51 PM
hello DVS,
i think i agree with word Biggest! indeed, biggest ship i've seen in the challenge so far. the mothership reminds me a lot of ID4 (Independence Day)...i miss that movie. can't crit my stuff are not this good. just a suggestion, i think a soft fog twirling down will make some change...away from the conventional lazers. hey, just a suggestion. very grand! keep up.

12-28-2004, 05:58 PM
shiela_G : thanks for the nice words sweety "" Just kiddin ;P I'm really happy that you like it I hope to see some of your stuff actually... And about your suggestion it's some awesome idea thanks a lot I will think about that with sure.

12-28-2004, 10:55 PM
did anyone say independence day? :beer:

12-28-2004, 11:33 PM
is it really look like on the movie ?! :( actually I now search the pictures and it's not the same concept I don't want steal concepts except the one think that open from the down of the ship is simmilar I think...http://www.fantascienza.com/cinema/independence-day/media/11.jpg

12-28-2004, 11:50 PM
Hello DVS, some progress is on top of us! ;)

I would suggest giving some color variation and several small thingies coming out of that mass...towers, antennas...platforms....not that big as the central opening though....

12-28-2004, 11:55 PM
thanks for the coment terraarc I appraise that and I will add some colour to that think for sure ;-) I'm now working under the composition with the ship and the city will add some updates soon. thanks gl

12-29-2004, 04:49 AM
that's exactly the pic that came to my mind when I saw your update :beer:

12-29-2004, 11:40 AM
actually that's not the big deal in the whole image. that's will be just the background... the big hit and the focus of the image will be the mech soldiers which will prepare to attack the ships they will be about 10 or may be more flying around with some small ships. And lots of explosions smoke and special effects upcomin ;P thanks

I now test the clouds and the ship still low res images I will upload some high res when I\'m pleased with the result cause it\'s slow AfterBurn for the clouds

12-29-2004, 04:17 PM
hi dvs,
pretty huge modeling there. of course, it's not the same concept as ID4. just reminds me of the hugeness of the ship on the film. anyway, just a question. what renderer are you using? coz the mech soldiers and the test scene looks awsome at that stage. the light was really well simulated. ha! forget about ID4, you got Grand Space.:thumbsup:

12-29-2004, 05:02 PM
Well, that is correct.
Wish you the best of luck with all those effects and I hope you will finish on time :beer:

12-29-2004, 07:46 PM
thanks for the comments my friends. I'm using Brazil 1.2 sweety ;-P :P I hope to make some cool lighting and athmosphere. however we have not time so we have to work fast Nemirc I hope to finish your project also just work hard..

Thats too bad you had a good image going, good luck with your exams though they should take priority I think. There will be other challenges in the future.
Take care,

Yavor it's been a great pleasure meeting and watching over your progress! :)
I really enjoyed your motivation and enthusiasm over your project mate! You've made some great progress leaps imagining your late entry...(December if I remember well)...and that alone was motivating enough for me at least...:bounce:

Quite a pity you didn't made the deadline BUT!!....this is not the end mate! Think over your idea again and try adding those things missing to complete your vision.....:thumbsup:

Hope to see you soon around CG....:)

Hey man I was wondering where you went in the challenge! Now I know...It's too bad, but we're both still very young, (it says here that you're 18, I'm 19 in 2005) so we have lots more time to get way better, and you're already really good! Cheers to your future work! We'll meet again I bet.
