Hello CGtalkies,

In an attempt to stimulate some more collaborations between the cgtalkies, we are having a little experiment on an Across-the-Board Mini Challenge. This has nothing to do with the official cgtalk.com challenges at all BTW.
Here's the original 2D Concept Challenge. (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=21016)

This is the thing:
- Pick the concept you find most interesting and model the thing.
- Do you want to texture it aswell? Please do and make us happy! But it’s optional.
- This is a collaboration thread, so discuss your entrie with the concepter.
- Whatever you do with the model/render etc., don’t credit yourself for the concept. The concepter gets the credits for that. And the modeller will allways get the concepter’s credit for the model offcourse.

Some things to keep it all pleasant:
- Use your common sense. Doubles are not a problem, but please don’t give us 20 times the same concept modelled.
- We do not wish to see the forums filled with cyborgs. So post everything about your entrie in THIS exact thread! If you choose not to, your thread will get terminated without any mercy!
- This might become a very long thread, so try to limit your amount of WIPs and cheers to keep it all readable.
- Rules are not open for negotiation. This is it. Resistance is futile.

Have fun! Let the modelling begin... jeroentje :beer:

Soooo, I did it as far as the conceptual stage, ala Craig Mullins (I thank him 1000 times a day!), rather rough, but about as finished as you'll get from me on Laborday Weekend :beer:

Thanks that was a great break from the many projects that are due this week, thanks again and I look forward to the next one.

Here's my cyborg. The old ver. got lost in the server crash. (I hope I still get one update:D) It's still pretty messy, but I think it's coming along. I hope it meets everyone's standards.btw tell me if it's too big.

Good start Cockofthewok, but it might be hard for a modeler to understand all the shapes of him in that stance.

Here's my entry. I was trying to think of an interesting way to combine man and machine, and I remembered a very old sketch I drew... could be 6-8 years old. It's always been one of my favourites, and the characters are perfect for a cyborg idea.

Here's a link to the old original scene called "PLiGhT of The SPiDER PEoPLE":

http://www.baconbomb.com/bluefunk/art/fant/fant31.jpg

It's a poor scan, and I'm not sure where the original is now, but you get the idea.

Here's the current concept:

hi guys....
i've made this a long time ago....this is a main character of a short story i wrote (it's about a.i. and so....and the bad bad mankind that robbed the planet and such stuff!)
it's not the best drawing....but i hope you like it

so i think i'll post some pics later!

waiting for your work jeroentje!

and for now this one....

jeroentje
09-03-2002, 11:46 AM
Oh what the hell... here she is, it's been finished for days.

I tried to keep a bit of 1930/40's feeling in it and used oldfashioned switches and buttons. Texture should be brown leather like them old double winged flying machine pilots.
I overdid it a bit in the rendering maybe, but I loved the piece and lost myself in detailing. Not really necessairy for the challenge, but I thought maybe some nice info for a modeller.

ok, well... I suppose I'll give it a go......

I did this drawing a while ago... it's a finished peice.... I really like drawing but I'm learning 3d now so I haven't really had time to make any "pictures"... mostly sketches.... I blurred the BG so that the character is easier to see....... I'm actually curious to hear what people think of this peice actually.....

This is my cyborg, a sort of cyborgcop of the future, he can´t kiss, but can caress.

http://www.soportalia.com/pancreas/cyborgcop.jpg

I went for a comic style, but i can´t get the happy result, so i just applied a bunch of filters. If anyone wants to color it i´ve got the bigger size sketch and the inked linedraw in ps6.

hi everyone,

i have heard a lot talk about cgtalk. it's said to be the best online community, dunno wether you know that ;)
anyways, this is a very cool thread and a nice place for a debut, i thought. allthough i have to admit that i'm not a great drawer. but hey, who cares.

here's mine:

pretty unfinished as you can see. but it's a concept.
hope you like, comments welcome

Well, I'm not much of a tech artist (I usually do soft and squishies) so feel free to take some liberties with the design when modelling. Can't wait to see how these turn out in 3D.

http://www.cell2000.net/~users/kirtstanke/images/sony-watchdog.jpg

If someone does this in Maya I wouldn't mind getting a copy of the file so I can try some animations with it. I'm not really a modeller :shrug: Have fun and let me know if you need anything for the modelling process.

09-09-2002, 08:48 AM
Here's my entrie!
Didn't really get those copper parts right,i find metal difficult to draw.But if anyone should chose to model this,metal shouldn't be a problem :)

Kirt: i love your concept,it's kind of a parodie on those aibo dogs.
Jeroentje: good idea for a thread ,keep those coming ,i'll try to keep on joining them. "gefeliciteerd "on the mod-job by the way.
sleepless:looking forward to your colored version.i'm a fan of your work!

If anyone should want to model this... I'm sorry, but I don't think I'll have any time to refine and/or discuss the design. :(

Kirt- Another great idea, and different approach.
Way to go everyone!

Tightened up my sketch some, pity the fool who tries to model this "inexact" drawing. I suck at mecha stuff, better go study up for the next few years. LOL. For what it's worth....

Hi everybody...
I saw all these great concepts of your cybeorgs and was astonished to see all those different forms.. That gave me quite a boost so I've desided to make some of form research for my self..

Well My cyborg is not humanoid.. But, it is a combination of organics and "hardware" :rolleyes: ... In other words it's an enchanced Jellyfish...

Hope you like it :wavey:

09-14-2002, 08:02 AM
So these are the concepts... Let the modelling begin!
Don't forget to read this (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=176637#post176637) first, and have fun.

jeroentje, your 2D moderator.

Very imporatant: everything in THIS thread please!

DXtreme
09-14-2002, 01:10 PM
yeah jeroentje...you've very great ideas to give these forum more live as it has already!
i think it would be great to see some of these great concepts modelled by one of the 3d guys! i would take part but my box is still rendering so i've no abillity to model!

so i hope when i come back to check some updates there would be some very interesting things to see!

Great idea for a mini-challenge! :thumbsup: I decided to start modeling art7sayan's cool cyborg concept. Here's where I'm at right now, slowly making the basic shapes, lots more to model :bounce:

http://www.skwerm.com/mattam/wip/RenderHeadtest4.jpg

One thing I'm wondering though, could you draw us a rear view of your concept Art7sayan? I'm not sure what happens to those chest tubes when they loop around to the back. Thanks :)

-mattam
ps. The same goes for almost all the other concepts, could we get more viewpoints of the concepts? It's a bit difficult modeling with just one viewpoint when we don't know what the other side looks like :p

ACFred
09-18-2002, 07:44 AM
Hey folks,

Tim Lee (Sleepless) was nice enough to let me model his business-cyborg. I'm going to try to stick with the style of his original drawing and use the same tonal qualities he uses in his other illustrations.

I might even take a crack at using cloth for his suit....maybe....:hmm:

Here is the reference pic:

I'll post the humble beginnings soon....

Hey, this thread is goin' to be awesome!!

Great start mattam! Yes of course I will send you the other views of my cyborg as soon as I will find some spare time!(to Wiz too)...
I guess it's because it was a "concept challenge" that you can't find some model sheet of those cyborg here! Just private mail the artist who made the concept to have the other views ;)

OK, here's my first modeling submission:

I'm modeling with NURBS in Maya at the moment. I'll do his face and the fleshy parts of his anatomy with polygons. I'll probably redo the wheel well thing. The textures, of course, are just dummy colors.

OK, I changed the hub, or whatever it's called. I like this one much better. I must've had my head up my butt to think the other one was any good. I guess modeling at 4:30 in the morning will do that to you. Anyway, here it is:

thought i'd have a go at modelling roel's cyborg...i'm kinda lovin' this concept cause it reminds me of the characters in metal-slg on the neo geo - outstanding drawing!

roel: i read your post , and it sounded like you didn't have time to discuss this design, so i hope you don't mind that i have gone ahead and started to model it ;) hope you like it so far, and that i have done it justice, your c+c are more than welcome of course

6 hours modelling so far - 2283 polys

updates to come

09-21-2002, 06:25 AM
Miss Sono: excellent work! But as Carlocki said, a few small differences between the left and right sides would be an improvement. I guess I have no choice now but to try to get some additional sketches done, have I?

Here is a higher resolution pic of the cyborg along with ahead close up and a profile. I fear the higher rez wont help much due to the way it was drawn. To tell you guys the truth I had no idea the were to be modeled by the forum members :) That's what i get for not reading carefully. Anyway, I hope they help. Even better just go with what you think its cool, as long as you go for the overall feel of the pic it's all good :beer:

OK, it's still slow going (multitask, multitask!), but I've worked a bit on the generator, with nurnies and wiring to follow.
Next up for me is to rough out the upper torso and start working on the cloth sim. I've never worked much with Maya Cloth, so I'll let you know how that goes and maybe show some of my experimentation.

One of Tim's paintings of this guy had a bit different flexible piece between upper torso and generator. It was more of a metal skirt. I think I'm going to combine the metal skirt with the springy things I have now. It'll also help the cloth sim, I think, to have those shapes as buffers.

Here's the latest (without textures, of course):

Back to work.....

09-22-2002, 05:48 AM
OK,

Here's my first WIP of one of the drawings. There is still a lot of work. I'm not happy with the breasts (need to fall to side more) and there is some weird geometry at the waist I need to clear up, but it is close enough to post as a first WIP.

I'll probably start making and attching the props/nernies/doodads sometime tomorrow. The hair will most likely be last thing I do (I hate modling hair! )

Question: Should I make the eyes larger and go for more of the fantasy look from the drawing, or should I keep them real sized like they are now ?

Hi,
Here's the updated cyborg wip:

http://www.skwerm.com/mattam/wip/RenderHeadtest9.jpg

It's still mostly just blocking out the shapes, but I've started to add in a few more of the details like those airfilters (?) and also the curves on his Leg armor. I think it's almost time to model his poor left arm. Then after that, I need to work on the armor some more. So many pieces!

Equinoxx : nice one! I like the eyebrow/nose wrinkle especially.

Stan : Good work, I would probably go with the larger fantasy eyes :surprised

AcFred : lookin good, although in his drawing, the wheel looks less wide?

EvilDan : wooooo! :buttrock: Love the extra views :love: It really helps us see what the character is like better.

miss sono : Looking forward to seeing it colored :)

Hey there, just thought I'd show the results of my first foray into Maya Cloth. I started the Maya cloth tutorials last night and spent most of today applying the techniques to the cyborg.

I'm not there yet. Right now the fabric looks more like sweatshirt material, but I'm going to start from scratch tomorrow with real sewing patterns to give me an authentic look.

The geometry of the shirt you're looking at now is actually not Maya Cloth, but an extruded duplicate that is driven by the cloth object using a Wrap Deformer. It really works well. I probably don't need to use this technique on the shirt since shirts are so thin anyway, but the coat is definitely getting this treatment.

Anyway, here it is:

Texture are preliminary and I still need to model the hair and Wrist Gun/Optical Site/Gadgets.

Any chance of getting a better image of the gadgets themselves ? Another question. Is there supposed to be a pair of glass goggles over the mask ?

hello,
i d love to participate in this contest. unfortunately all the cyborgs i like are being modelled by someone else.

this is why i am still looking for a cyborg that noone is modeling so far.

there is only one thing i demand. the 2d artist should want to cooperate with me. like providing me with detail sketches of specific parts of the body etc.

if you are interested contact me via email in order not to crowd this thread.

Hola! Hope I'm not too late here but I was gonna give a go at mars' concept (http://www.cgtalk.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=199994) since it doesn't appear to be in the works yet and it's pretty darn cool.

Mars, can you post any more angles? If not I can guestimate it but I figured it would be best to work from all the original. (front/side would be ideal) Thanks a lot! ;)

Cheers!

-edit, the front/side could be just plain lineart as well. I just need to get the idea what's going on, especially in the front

OK, I finally got back to Tim's cyborg. I started working on the character's head yesterday and am pretty close to being done with the modeling.

It's made with Sub-D's (my first!) in Maya. Textures are obviously just placeholders.

I'll have to do some research on creating blendshapes for sub-d.

Here it is:

Oh, here is where I am overall -- I just plopped the head onto the stuff I had worked on a few weeks ago.

The body is a medium-res solution used for cloth solving. Since it'll be covered up, I didn't go into too much detail or superb muscle placement. I just needed stuff in their ballpark so the cloth will move in a way appropriate to the body.

I also need to increase the size of the generator -- make it wider.

I'm starting the arms Saturday after I sit down and design some cool gadgets for those places in the original image that are a little sparse.

I've placed a tiny version of the original pic by Tim Lee so people can see where I am and where I'm going....

Just a suggestion, make the tire thicker. It will make the scale better. With the wider wheel, the thicker tire part will look better I think.

Hey there.

Thanks for the critique on my piece. It's coming along.

Here's a small update. I started working on the left arm and still have to put a bunch of doo-dads on it. I just did this test so I can determine the scale (I'm working on the arm in a separate file).
I duplicated the left arm over to the right so I can get a feel for the overall weight of the upper torso.

I really need to get his body covered up so nobody thinks that it's supposed to be like that....must work on the shirt soon.

Anyway, here it is. More soon.....as long as I finish my kitchen sink, faucets and tiling early tomorrow (oh, that real world interfering again....)

I recieved a PM from another person interested in modelling my cyborg-dog, thus bringing the total number of modellers to FOUR! Wow, I'm excited ... thanks for the interest.

However, this may get old for everyone else if we suddenly see several WIPs of the same cyborg. So, I thought that maybe if one or more of you modellers were interested (and felt the need for a greater challenge) you could use the basic concept and design alternative models. The dog (for example) could be a basset hound, doberman, chihuahua (I just think these dogs are hilarious), or saint bernard. The hardware could be changed to suit the dog bread. Say the doberman is more suited for guard duty. The saint bernard is outfitted for rescue. The chihuahua could be like one of those disposable or one-time use cameras that you get from a vending machine.

The model sheet provided is for a terrier/home-personal use model (thus the I-Mac like color choices). Anyway, you get the idea ... I'll try to get a few more drawings done but my free time is somewhat limited.

this is great stuff and an amazing IDEA, Mods if you're looking at this TRY TO ORGANIZE SOMETHING LIKE THIS MORE OFTEN there is a lot of great concept artist there who would love to get thier ideas into 3d and what greater way for 3d people to get some recognision for their 3d work!!! keep it going!

Heres a Better pic with some temp textures until i get around to adding much better ones (when im done with the model)
The problem is i REALLY need that flat back pic or i wont be able to do the back of his head neck chest leg arm........
PS All the parts not on the head are becuase either A)need back pic or B) Im waiting until i attach the two together ( I have a wierd bug *long story*)

While I'm working on my cyborg's hands, I thought I'd show where I'm at with the arms.
I'm using these metallic textures as stand-ins until I have time to hand-paint some, which will be sometime after my demo reel is complete. Since I'm not attempting to be placed as a texture artist, I figured I'd just throw on a texture I thought looked pretty decent but didn't take a long time to make or render.
The metallic texture uses Maya's Environment Sky texture in the reflection color to get the appearance of reflecting an environment without having to raytrace and take that time hit.

Anyway, here are the arms. I'm working on the hands (1 realistic human, the other mechanical) and should have those done tonight. I'll post an update when they're done.

The arms:

Lookin' slick folks. Keep up the nice work!

Well, call me the cuttin' corners man. I threw together a sub-d human hand and a very Spartan mechanical hand. I need to get this guy animated, so I chose to put in some imperfect but passable substitutes for hands, as I did with the textures. I'll spend more time with the face blendshapes to make him quite expressive.

Here are the hands....next post will be the cyborg minus his cloth and some textures.......

http://www.community3d.com/images/hands.jpg

Alec

ACFred
11-06-2002, 01:17 AM
OK, I slapped the pieces together again in preparation for animation. I'll do as many facial blendshapes tonight as I can and have a test done tomorrow. I gave up on the cloth for now because it's too time consuming and taking me away from the stuff that's more important to me right now, which is the character animation and setup.

I'll do a little rework of his torso anatomy since it's going to be visible for the time being and I don't like the way it looks right now.

Here he is:

I have a turntable set up as well that I'll be rendering the next couple days and I'll also include some detail and wireframe junk some time this weekend. I'll probably tweak some things once I start rigging but I probably won't do much more modeling on it. Curious what you think mars? Any suggestions? I was considering putting a mech hand on one arm along the lines of some of the other figures you have on your site.

Cheers!

11-19-2002, 12:29 PM
Yes %Peppo. This Minichallenge was started 3 months ago to stimulate some interaction between the 3D modellers and the concepters in 2D artwork.
It's coming to an end now, with some amazing results, lots of fun and many things being learned :)
But feel free to pick one of the concepts and model the thing. Please read the guidelines in the very first post. Don't forget to credit the concepter for the concept.
