hi all,
Firstable, good luck for all participants!
Here is my first concept sketch.
I'm thinking about a double personality character . He's afraid of his obscur personality, and he succeed in pushing it away in the past with a voodoo doll... But now, the bad is coming back!...too late, he see it in the mirror!!

here is my first modeling attempt for my character. I essentially focused on the face, because clothes are coming soon.

Nice work so far :thumbsup: Is his doppelganger going to be suave and cool, or the same?

thank you to both,

for the doppleganger (sorry for my bad English, I suppose that you speak about the shadows), I did not decide a final aspect yet, that surely will change.

Good luck with you two

thanks for your comments guys! :)

gra7 : the texture of the face is not finished, i'll finish it soon, and show the result. I'm just started from a face picture. The shader is a simple phong, with texture applied and specular adjusted. No bump map at this time, and no specular map.

It's shaping up to be a great image :thumbsup: Not sure about your comment about doppelgangers and shadows. Everyone in the world is supposed to have a doppelganger. A person who is identical but a sort of ghost. He/she is always plotting to take over your life. He/she is cool and suave and uses all of your gifts in a charming and laid back manner. So, you can see how the idea fits in with a psychological notion of split personallity.

ho sorry, i didn't understand.

i'm thinking about a devil ghost. He try to take control, and has the same appearance than the principal character. His facial expression in the mirror will betray it ...

Sounds good :thumbsup: I think maybe if he has a contemptuous smile and a slightly raised eyebrow that would work, rather than out and out demonic.

julius27
04-11-2005, 08:07 AM
yes, i agree with you.

At this time, i'm working textures. And after, i'll start charcter posing and facial expression. Lot of work left!! :eek:

here are some objects textured.

I start with simple objects, because i'm learning xsi tools.

I'll upload my first try for lightning this evening.

here are lighting bases. I'll work again on them, but later, i have a lot of work on texture and posing first.

just 2 lights for the moment.

hi all,

here is my newest scene in xsi. I reorganise it little by little. You can see the modelisation with wireframe to.

I actually encounter some problems with lightning, so i hope it will come soon.

lot of texturing work left to.

thanks for comments.

Nice work.


You might want to freeze the texture projection on the head.
The character is very cool, but his pose right now seems slightly unnatural.

Hope to see more.

What problem are you having with lighting?

julius27
04-26-2005, 11:22 AM
of course, i'm going to freeze the texture projection on the head.

I agree with you : the character's pose is not finished. Some members are too rigid, i didn't move them from the basic pose.

There is a mirror on the table at his right: he's going to look at this, and he'll see his own image, his "doppelganger", with a frightened expression.

For the lighting, i have some problems with the global illumination and point light shadows. It's the first time i use it, but i'll search a little bit more for myself. If i encounter importants problems, i'll ask you some questions if you are agree... thanks very much

and sorry for my bad english.

hi all,

here is the new state of my work.
I adjusted the man pose some modeling details to work left).
Some textures are modified or changed. I just still have some problems with lightning : i'm working with softimage XSI foundation, and i want to apply a glow to my lights sources. In a new simple scene, it works perfectly, but in my challenge scene, it doesn't... i don't understand. I make the same operation, but no result when rendering.

If anyone works on XSI, your help is welcome!!

thanks ;)

Try getting rid of all of the material on the light first. Add the new material and then apply the glow again, it may just be a small glitch or just taking a while to render since the are other thing in your actual scene. Let us know how it turns out.
Looking good BTW.

thanks for your help dmonk, but i tried to do what you said : delete the actual material in the render tree, add a constant material, and then apply a glow. But no result.

I'm searching in the region and rendering options, but no result too....

Hi!

Try creating a new pass, add Volumic Light Effects to the Volume Shaders list, then select your light partition, and go Properties-->Volumic. Change the Reflectance to 0.05 or something like that and adjust the other settings as well. Maybe this helps, good luck!!

thanks for your help, but it doesn't work too....
I've not anough time to resolve the problem. So, i'll do this glow in my 2d soft, after final rendering.

For now, here is my new scene.

I'm still working on textures, and i created new lights.

i've to adjust character rig too.

Lot of work, and only 7 days left!!

hi all,

this version is close to the final one. There remain some changes in the facial expression of the character. Some final improvements and additions of details in 2D, and that will be finished for me.

Hi julien, great image you have going here:thumbsup: It has a real sort of twisted feel to it;) Well done...

thanks DaddyMack,

I have just noticed that I posted a bad image... this one is shifted, and there is a large black trace... But that gives an idea.

this is my final render in softimage.

i\'ve changed the dolly head, the character\'s facial expression, and added some objects.

We can now see the devil part of him in the mirror!!

Now, i have one day to work on compositing and post effects!!

this image will be very close to my final image.

Addition of luminosity on the lamp, softening of certain shades, darkening of the interior of the mouth, suppression of some defects on the shirt, hands and certain elements of decoration.
