Looks like a great idea, I had a similar thought of a large 'spectacular' tournament, with a crowd of thousands, I was thinking along the lines of an airborne contest, race of some sort or speed and skill based type of game with rocket packs airborne football etc. I felt that it was heading to close towards Harry Potter and Quidditch, so am now thinking of something else.
Your ground based joust looks like it could have potential, I look forward to seeing the concept developed further.

lovely idea mate, would even make a nice video game theme :D

you could fake a crowd by making several simple people shapes, different colours in clothing and then point cloning them. if you would then blur the background so that the car-action is the camera focus, prob would be solved the easiest way...

keep it up dude, running smoothly :thumbsup:

ill give that a try tonight since the background is gona be lil blurred any way.. that will prolly look pretty good with a few hundred camera flashes

Lightwave... in that case I have no idea how to make a crows :drool:

I like that last update. It reminds me of MadMax. Is that leather or any other kind of fabric? You may want to add some wrinkles ;)

i dont like the current style for the second guy so im working on a modern / old style armor for him

My money's on the guy who doesn't have pink fur on his helmet. :D It looks good, but i'm not sure how it'll fit with the more silver colored armor. I will, however, reserve judgement until it's actually put together.

Hi Tyler,

Love the concept :D
Specially, the car "bling" factor, the colosseum and the work so far.
I have noticed something on your latest update.

I like the armor, but you could have another look at the player's porportions.
I think his hands are a little too small, his hips a little too fat and his butt and thighs also too wide. You could have a better look at your base anatomy.
Other then that looking very spectacular.

Cheers.

working on how the image will look in the final shot .. the particals from the broken glass and wood chips from the impact will be the last few things i do

Ouch. Looks like that guy will be sitting on the bench for a while. I'd like to see more shards from the lance shattering. Really give it that high velocity impact look.

Woah, lots of updates!

My only critic would be that the legs look too short :)
Other than that, outstanding work!
