That pose is really excellent I think. I've got a little crit about something we haven't done before, her teeth look really... bizarre, kinda like bad teeth and as she's a beautiful girl, it's a little disturbing.

Really nice posing, she looks soooo angry...great expression too!! Buuuutttt... i think the ears seems a little too flat and the teeth looks like "vampire's teeth"... but it's just my opinion...

Cleveland

this last pose is just great. the emotion on her face reads clearly. don't really have anything to crit. i'm avoiding pose deformations by putting them all off until later. think its going to end in tears for me. but you'll be fine, i can tell.

shakes
03-24-2006, 02:24 AM
fantastic Zapan..you're spoiling us! brilliant face and expression. just a question out of interst- do you morph the pose, then lock it in the pose and make minor modelling tweaks? Or do you keep it fully rigged?

se7enthcin
03-24-2006, 02:53 AM
To expand on what shakes said. There's no reason to keep it fully rigged if you are just going to use her for this competition, however it might be a shame to do just that. There is always time to re-rig her properly some other time as well. I say delete the rig and manipulate manually or go into zbrush to manipulate the parts that are deformed.

But it doesn't look half bad. Not too many visible deformations. :)

the 2nd elf is better than the 1st ... if it's possible ! ^^
You model exactly the kind of girl I love :D ... (so, i love elf girl :shrug: ...)
élancée, un visage bien rempli mais allongé, un corps de rêve et
une hatitude qui prouve qu'elles en ont dans la caboche

I think I'll soon find my future desktop with your final image !
your modeling, rigging, and also your rythm are amazing !

Just a little remark, like Poonks about the teeth, I have a strange feeling too
mais bon, c'est vraiment histoire de faire une remarque lol

bonne contin' !

I rigged the whole model , get the pose and then deleted the bones to tweak all parts separatly by hands ... a real pain !! I wish I could do a complex and yet clean rigging but I have to deal with the word tweaking for now !!

@ se7enthcin : yes , totally right , besides I'm a little ashamed to say that my models are really not optimized to rigging and animation ... lot of crazy faces cutting in the cloth and stuff ... I was almsot thinking to make her directly in pose but maybe I'm gonna reuse these models for some others images later so ....

She's looking fine anyway - as other have said, the pose is great - very natural. And the face expression so alive even before texturing. You're doing just great here :thumbsup:

heh..glad you say that..exactly how I do it! I agree, I'd love to get the rigging 100%, but often for stills it's alot quicker doing it this way.
I'm speechless, yet again, at your modelling and character design-brilliant!

It's nice to leave your options open. I debated that same thing with my character as well. I thought about modeling him in his pose but I thought it be better to leave my options open. :cool:

Keep moving forward! I love the update!

You work is awsome... the only thing that bothers me, and I know it´s just a preference of mine, is the size of the ears, it looks something evil to me, I preferer the size they used in LOTR.

Hey friends !

@ daWinky : Thx a lot Sabie !! :)

@ monsitj : Hey Monsit , always so great to have a comment from you , thx a lot my friend for your kind words !!

@ alancamara : Thx a lot Alan !!

@ Nothingness : Thx a lot man , sure , I will follow your steps of course , and I will try to C&C as much as I can ... cheers , oh and I'm really sure the gpepper's comment wasn't for you ;)

@ gpepper : ahahaha , thx a lot Gilles !

@ Gunilla : Thx a lot my dear Gunie ... do you really think a bowlcut would suit her ? she 's not looking asian enough me think :) ...

@ rattlesnake : Thx a lot Jorge ... ahah I perfected the art of hiding ugliest areas under other things ahaha ...

@ damirg : Hey Damir , thx a lot mate , great to know you like it ... btw what happened to your AIR nick ? I wasn't sure it was you at the first read :)

@ GI-JOe2k : Hey Joe , what's up my friend ? thx a lot , and it's great to see you :thumbsup:

@ Vadonia : Thx a lot mate !!

@ shakes : aha , thx a lot John for all the compliments ...

@ thebest : Thx Tony !

@ se7enthcin : Thx man , yup that's the idea ... unfortunately , I had to rework some areas to correct the pose , so if I reuse the model , I will only have the mesh without unwrapping and textures and such ... bah whatever ... :shrug: :)

@ nelsonteixeira : Thx a lot , yeah I had some thoughts about it at first ... but even if I'm a really huge LOTR fan , it's pretty much too realistic kinda style for this picture ... I tried to find a comics kind of look for the whole design and I would say that the long sharped ears works better for it ... I checked Blizzard or GamesWorkshop artworks and they have even longer ears tho .... bah , personal tastes I guess ...:)


Ok I've unwrapped the first chick today , so I guess I'm ready to start painting , if things are going well , I believe you'll see the textured version of her in approximatively sixteen years ...
oh well ... :argh:

I would like to thank again you all for this splendid support you're all giving to me on this project and one more time , I really hope I won't disappoint you for the next ... I'll try to update as soon as possible ... You guys rock !

Have a great weekend everyone ! :wavey:

cheers , ... and w00t

Wow your modelling look great. i really like the pose and all the details. Thats nice. :buttrock:

I am wondering. How did youd do the hair?? It looks like spline hair (like Shag hair or shave hair cut or whatever...), but on your pic you can c clearly that it is model hair. Or perhaps a mix of both?

ahahaha , my god women , I'm crying :scream: ...


Ok I spend my whole afternoon doing crappy tests but at least I found something nice for their jewelry , I found a way to create a sort of velvet shader based on a falloff material and mix of bump , like that it seems way more comfortable to her skin :D ... Steph, barbie dresser :scream:

Hi all !

Here's the first test for the textures ...
Don't pay attention to the very early skin shader , I just dropped the basic sss skinshader from maya to see the global color balance ...

err... at least it's a start ...

Let me know what you guys think of .

Oh yes, very nice, harmonic colorset :love:
Looks really well, and to have something to suggest...if you want to add a detail, maybe some tiny blue pearls or something, for contrast?
Can't wait to see them all together now, are you going to name them after your fangirls? :rolleyes: :D


@ thebest : I'm afraid that even god won't be able to do something against these girls .... wait did I say that loud ? :scream:

Hahaha, you're really asking for it, aren't you? :twisted:

hey zapan,


great looking pose you got there. Only crit i got is about the hair. About the specularity of it. At some places it looks like it's a sollid shape so it gets a bit a fake feeling. Don't know how to fix this since i never done it before :argh:

Hi friends !!

Here's a closeup of her face to see the skin shader results ...
I'm still tweaking the skin tones , but it's quite hard to figure it out without being ok with the final lighting .... So I guess I'm gonna leave it like this for while and move to another character ... and then start working on the environnement ... pheww...

Btw : in this one , I doubled the forehead hairs maps to prevent the whisp effect of the hairs ... hope it's better ...

Let me know what you guys think of

cheers ,

La forme de la bouche me derange un peu... l'ouverture forme un "U" alors qu'en vrai quand tu ouvres la bouche çà ressemble plus a un "V"...et il manque un peu de couches de cheveux a mon avis

The skin shader is great but i will see more red color on her ears...

Can't wait to see more!

hey zapan!

the hair looks great. Seems your progress is comming fast.

some crits on the hair: it looks a bit to transparent. Like there is not enough hair.
Maybe at the end you can also try to get some more dence locks of hair. At the top the same i think. It's rather difficult to exlain, but it's how i think you could even take this further.

i was also wondering if you could exlain me a bit how you actualy do the hair :blush: ?
maybe a bit on what you actually do in photoshop or whatever you paint them in. :blush:

could be great. When i finish my modeling i'll need to do this too.

cheers

@ Nothingness : Thx a lot ! Yes hairs are a bit transparent , but more plans are planned except , I have to wait to find the right camera angle before adding them , the render time is getting heavy now , so I will wait a little to add maps only where it will need ... You can find a good explaination here (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=268961&page=3&pp=15) on how making poly hairs ... I'm pretty much doing the same way except , I'm using nurbs plans ... and also I'm using a ramp shader instead a diffuse map ... that's all !

spamming could be his work

ahahah , I wish :scream:

@ rasamaya : thx a lot , yes armpits are weird , but I'm not worried that much they will probably be covered by the cape are something ... In fact I find the whole chest area very empty ... I will try to find something nice to put on !

@ Elendil_le_Grand : Thx a lot Nicolas !

@ Poonks : Thx a lot Da Poonks !! non non , rien n'est vraiment définitif ... mais c'est le violet sur les armure que tu n'aime pas ou c'est dans les cheveux ? En fait je voulais un bleu nuit bien profond ... mais je me demande si mon écran est bien calibré :curious:

So stop spamming every threads and go to work

I have to ... it's kinda drugs !

Hey nice work on the new elf, I like that blue velvety texture. Are you going to give these elves jewelry? I see the standing one has a headband thing. But with ears like those they could hang some serious earrings. hahah.

Nice job Zappan.
Moreover you work very fast.

The face and the hair are beautiful.
But the the nail of the small finger (petit doigt) seems a bit too narrow (or it's because of the perspective view)

Looking great! Very nice and smooth modeling, also nice hair shader! Perhaps I'll use a similar technique for my other characters (the main one will be bald).

Can't wait to see another character different than the female elf!

Cheers =D!

i can't really seem to find any crits for your work, so i feel a little redundant. but here it goes: fantastic work stephane. even though her face and eyes are mostly occluded, you can really sense her emotion (or how bad her headache is;)). i love the hair too.

all the best,

@ soapy : Thx a lot Jim !! Yes I wish I could add many things like that , and I hope I will have some time to do that ... mmh In fact I'm gonna try to move on the global picture first , posing , background , these kind of stuff , and then if the time left permits me , then I could add extra funny thingies ... sounds good , don't you think ? ... w00t !

@ dt3d : Thx a lot mate !! mmh actually this is the final pose but the camera angle should be a little different , but mostly like that ... I'm afraid we won't see her face more than like that ... But I'm already planning several Illustrations images about these elves (probably in a couple of weeks for the first one ) which will be focused more on the characters ... :) .... w00t !

amazing results man!:thumbsup:...:bowdown:

Zapan
04-03-2006, 11:46 PM
@ SONIC-X : Thx a lot Corrie !!

@ rattlesnake : Hey mate , thx a lot my friend !! yes I think so ... I tried years ago to animate it ... altough I totally suck at it ... with soft bodies particles system to deal with dynamics and it might work me think ! otherwise you still can use key framing I guess... The last one has about 10/15 nurbs plans so it's not that much to animate ... If I'm not saying crap , Squaresoft used to make some of their characters with a similar technic (I think ... altough I'm not sure ... Cloud in Advent children has opacity maps as hair ) ...

Alright, I finally started the third elf tonight ... in the middle of the very long but still crappy grass tests ... so I guess tomorrow I will be able to show you the head of the last character ... if ... I'm ... not ... zzz zzz zzz zzz ... ...

cheerzzz ... zzz ...

ooh ooh, can i get a spam too?!

on the modeling note, for some reason this last elf girl si not as cute as the other too. which is trange when you think of it. one thing i see is that her cheek line on the side is like a "(" when it should be more like a backward "s". don't know how else to help, really. still solid.

I was thinking maybe add this in her cape too like a gold ornement in the middle of the velvet ... mmh sounds not bad at all .... weeee elves walking under a swedish banner !! :D ... thx Gunie my hero :scream:

Nice but the curve of the character isn't natural ....

The armour gives the impression that it's coming to fall down (elle va tomber) ... sorry for english :)


You should have more tension ...and create a sensation of weight ("armour")

But I like your character Keep Going!:)

scootermaya
04-07-2006, 09:16 AM
I beleive this is not the final pose ! So for the impression of falling, I wouldn't worry so much.

As for the clothing , Bravo my friend ! Good job ! Is she going to a certain night club as well ?(you can give her the adress later on).

I can't wait to see hair on her:bounce:

Vadonia
04-07-2006, 09:32 AM
Isn't about the final pose but on the character, the body itself....

She hasn't any muscles on the arm , the curve around the Hip and stomach is strange ....

That's all :(

Carry on !

Very nice work.

I'm not sure about this kind of "hook " on her bra.
Not very sexy and not pratical. But that's just my opinion.

Is the her gear body an armour?

Anyway, that's an impressive work.

And adding a male is a good idea if you have the time.

Hi friends !! :)
Sorry for being a little late to answer , I had a little problem these last few days , but things are squared away now ... Great to read all your sweet posts , thx to all !


@ the best : Salute ! ... wee she will gonna have hair ... and if you might marry her , but only if you have long sharped ears ... yeah I know , elves have weird tastes ...


@ Monsitj : Hi Monsit ! thanks a lot mate ... well I hope I will be able to do that soon , right after this one will be done !


@ Rattlesnake : Thx a lot for all these thumbsup !! you rock mate ! :thumbsup:


@ Tranguz : ahaha , oh no no no !! don't do that !! I don't want someone charges me for your loss ! or at least tell me where you live , to put myself under your window and catch you machine ! :) Thx a lot !


@ Bobber : thx a lot mate !!


@ daWinky : weeee ! ahahah , I told you it's never get cold outhere ... the hood is only here to hide when they are hunting ! *serious mode on* thanks a lot Sabie !


@ shakes : Thx a lot John for all these great words and your constant support !


@ Gunilla : bahahah ... of course , hoods are useful all the time : no need to have an IP30 cream when the sun burns out ... or when it's raining ... or when you don't want to be recognize ... and of course when you don't have hair ... I'm wearing some all the time ... but not because any of those reasons ...:scream:


@ Tigrenka : Hi there , Thx a lot Olga ! Well I'm really not sure to be one of winners , too many so talented people around , but at least I'm having fun with it and that's the whole it , I guess ! Btw you're doing so great in yours too , I feel a little ashamed to not have seen this before , will surely spam you soon !


@ Vadonia : Hi there Stéphanie ! Thx a lot for crits , and I 100% agree with you for the most of these ! I actually used the same body mesh (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/zapan/Journey/Body.jpg) for all 3 and I totally agree that it's really not perfect ... but I was especially looking for something anatomically correct but pretty much light since I was up to posing them after ... I surely will make some corrections depending of the pose and the view , you know ? ...anyway it's great to have your suggestions around , thx a lot ! Oh btw I took a look on your Kanya WIP , really awesome character you got there, spiffy work on the cloths ... will definitely follow your steps there ! cheers !


@ Scootermaya : Hiya Scooty !! thx a lot , you can put her in a nightclub if you want ... maybe as an extra guest or a special theme ... :D

@ Lemog : Thx a lot Laurent :bowdown: !


@ a-papantoniou : Thx a lot Antonis !! yes , I will try to find something interesting as pose for her ! thx a lot for coming by !


@ asbassie : Thx a lot mate ! and no worries , it's pretty hard to follow every threads at the same time , I hardly can follow every threads I suscribed on and it's even more difficult to find new ones !!! Oh and I do enjoy this a lot ... I just hope I'm gonna enjoy it until the end , enough to finish it on time !! cheers !


@ vfxluc : thx a lot ! ahah , yes modeling is pretty much all I do !


@ cipher : Hey Seb , thx a lot mate :bowdown: !! and you're dong so great in yours too !


@ dagann : Thx a lot ... mmh you don't like the bra ? I tried to find something nice and bit unusual as design , but I was pretty sure someone will disagree this part ... mmh I 'm gonna leave it like this for a while and see if with the rest of the body , the textures and pose you still not ok with it ! sounds fair ?


@ iran_animator : thx a lot mate !!


@ Rebeccak : weee !! How you doing sweetheart ? Yeah I was ashamed to become a snail again when everybody's rushing like crazy and crawl in a huge amount of work ... and by everybody I means you !! ahaha ... Btw is it still ok for me to spam your forum since your not a blue cool kid ? :)


@ pedja.k : thx a lot mate !!


@ zdepth : thx a lot !! well approximatively 25k polys unsmoothed for each ... I tried to not going over 100k smoothed because I'm worried already about the render times ... with all the sss , procedural shadings and such ... plus with the paintFX for grass , displace for trees and this just for the foreground ... I'm a bit afraid that my machine is gonna burn again ... :argh: :D


Thx again you guys !! I will try to update the complete body soon ... maybe tomorrow !
Have great end of weekend people !


cheers ,

@ Vadonia : Hi there Stéphanie ! Thx a lot for crits , and I 100% agree with you for the most of these ! I actually used the same body mesh (http://perso.wanadoo.fr/zapan/Journey/Body.jpg) for all 3 and I totally agree that it's really not perfect ... but I was especially looking for something anatomically correct but pretty much light since I was up to posing them after ...

I don't say i don't like the bra, but the hook:p . It "breaks" the circular design of the boob and gave the feeling it is slipping down as said Vadonia. That just my opinion. Anyway the design is good and original. I'm pretty sure the final result will be perfect, it's already very good. If i still don't like it i will let you know ;) But if you were supposed to listen everyone, you woul never finish your work :argh:

Keep it up!
