very clean modeling. Juste maybe some work on the bottom of the trousers (ajouter des plis ?). But it will depend of the pose of your character.

That'll make a great turntable. I like the subtle hand holding the cape. I'm afraid my turntable will show my picture is all smoke and mirrors. If it won't show up in the final render, I usually don't model it. I like the way your characters seem to have lives outside the picture.

Congrats on your progress. poof!

All nice updates here... and I do like the sound of an almost promise for male elf!

great work on the last posed elf girl, zapan. i have one question: how did you skin everything to the bones?? i'm always having difficulty getting everything to deform right when the characters have accesories. do you combine everything into one mesh or do you bidn them all separately?

thanks man...

Hi friends !! :) ... I'm really late here ... feel like to come back to class after some spring vacations ... I got a really long Easter week end , Hope you guys a had all a great time ! ... funny to eat so much chocolate instead of polys ... :scream: ... Anyway , back to several business' here now ... I hope I will be able to update soon !

@ Makaron : Weeee Mona hope you had a great week end !!


@ Glenn23 : Thx a lot Glenn , always an honor to have you here ... Well I usually don't make things which won't be shown on the final frame too .... except I thought maybe to reuse these elves for several others pictures ... so ... :)


@ DimitrisLiatsos : Bunch of nyark Dimi ! ahahaha.... maybe you would prefer the version without the cape as turntable ... :scream: ... I can do that ....


@ rasamaya : hi there !! thx a lot ... yes the wrist is quite disturbing to me too , especially on that angle... have to fix that !


@ BobbEr : Thx a lot Roman !! yup , I really have to hurry to textures them !!


@ thebest : Thx mate , a little late happy easter too ! .... No ... of course not , I'm gonna change the face expression very soon !!


@ gpepper : thx a lot Gillou !!


@ Gunilla : weeee ! yes !! I have to start the scene too , mmh I'm ready for this ... will try to upload this as soon as possible ... Thx a lot for the lovely pushing :)


@ Rebecca :: weeee Beckie !! I feel to be a snail more than never lately ... *slaps self* Thx a lot for chearing !!


@ flaeticia : LMKAO : laughing my korean a** off ... I took a class with rebeccaK to get those ...
... and stop doing wesh ! ... sinon je te sors les gens qui crient !

@ Marcus_B : Thx a lot !!


@ dagann : thx a lot !! ahaha , yes bald ladys aren't that sexy ...


@ Cleveland : thx a lot mate ! mmh skinning is pretty tricky ... actually everything wich might be deformed are skinned ... and rigid stuff are attached to bones instead of skinned ... and then tweak tweak tweak .... a real pain ...but at least it works without zillion of troubles...


@ Staszek : Thx a lot !! ahaha , And thx for believing in my modest texturing skills !


@ Elendil_le_Grand : Thx a lot Nico !!

oh yeah friend no doubt, now the question is ..would she date me with my actual textures?..lol


serious mode on: yeah textures are very cool..i like her lips coloring a lot i only think lips need a bit more wet look on them, thats only thing i see can be improved...great work friend!
oh yeah.maybe some very tiny red veins on the eyes, not too strong..just very few

Morning Stéph!

Very nice textures for your 3rd elf:thumbsup: ! Especially the skin is convincing and I love the colors you've used for her...but I still see something grey at the front of the armour, should be either green or gold too, not?
So some environment work next...good idea:) , but you don't think we'll forget about the male elf...at least we want to see one in your anatomy thread when the challenge is over:deal: !

Have a nice day!

Hi friends !! been a while ... :blush: ....

@ DimitrisLiatsos : Oumza mylord !! :bounce: :scream: ... Nyark a lot Dimi !

@ makaron : Bunch of nyark Mon' ...

@ Gunilla : Thx a lot Gunie ... weee , Very glad you like it !

@ Rattlesnake : Thx a lot Jorge ... Yes lips are not wet enough ... I guess it because spread specular in that area ... Have to check that ! ... And good point on her eyes ... :thumbsup:

now the question is ..would she date me with my actual textures?..
Ahahahahah :scream: ...

@ Rebeccak : Well I believe you didn't miss that much ... lately I've so much slow down the updates frequency ... is that the real snail thing ? not w00t ... :banghead: ... Hope I can change that ... Thx a lot for your kind words and for still following my progress over here ! :wavey:

@ oceanbluesky : Thx a lot Eric !! Very glad you like it ! Well lot of details won't appear on the final framing but I'm planning to use these characters for several images .... so I wanted to get them complete ... That explains why I spend so much time on them ...

@ daWinky : Thx a lot Sabie ... weeee ! Yup , I noticed that thing wasn't textured properly , have to fix it , thx for pointing ... No worries about the male elf ... I think it won't be here on that image but I will definitely make one ... I have to ... too many ideas of images in my head , not sure I can handle all this tho :curious: ... ahaha !

@ SONIC-X : Thx a lot Corrie !!

@ fleaticia : Oué gr... oops .... ahahaha you crazy nut blond french wecheu :scream: ... c'est d'la boulette !

@ FlaminGlow : Thx a lot mate !! Hope to have something to show soon !

@ Lemog : Thankssss sssir Lolo ! I do like the sss effect but better not abussse of that ... Glad you like thisss way !

@ dagann : Thx a lot ! well the final framing will probably show her frome 3/4 back ... but I will post some finished images of all them 3 with better angles (face view) ... very soon in fact ...

@ Elendil_le grand : Thx a lot Nico !! the render is MR final gathering ... The iris is a map on a lambert ... the globe a procedural phong shader ... I used a hdri map for reflection ...

@ gpepper : Thx a lot Gilles !

@ shakes : Thx a lot John ! ahaha you want to marry her too ? ... jeez ...

@ Climax : aaaaaaahhhahahaha , thx a lot Omar ... If Santa have a elves like this , I surely know why he's coming out only one day per year :scream: ...


Thx evryone for all your great comments and support ! I had a lot of thinking on that image and how the whole project could evolve ... I'm definitely not that happy about the concept... And I got many other ideas for those characters but unfortunately not very related on that challenge theme ... So I think I will continue to work on that one but on the side of some others , will be probably really hard to finish it before the deadline tho... I surely will share any other images about these characters with you all anyway ...

Hope to have something to show soon !

cheers ,

-Zapan

weshwesh you did a beautiful elsh..er...elf. Really I like it, especially the way you textured it is...wesh, let's say...reallyreally nice (hope I had such a lovely skin, L'Oréal parce que jele vaux bien hem).
That's not a problem if this challenge isn't achieved provided that these lovely elves are re-used for new adventures!!!

Awighty then ... I'm pretty much done with boring work stuff ... So now I guess I'm ready to get back seriously at it ... I made several tests with paintFX , but the exact same thing that the last time happened ... crashes and stuff ... 2 days ago I had this nice and pleasant conversation with my roommate after the zillionth crash of MR :

Me : AAAARGGGHHH Damn you useless computer ...(it was actually some really spicy french swearings)
Roomy : hey what's going on over here ?
Me : I hate computers ...
Roomy : really ? I like mine ...
Me : Of course you only use it to check your mail box ...
Roomy : when's the deadline ?
Me : May 27th
Roomy : ahah , you suck , there is no way you can finish on time
Me : :argh:

One day I should consider looking for a new place :scream: :scream: ...

So I clean up the damn machine , and it appears that MR really like better the very empty HD ... weird ... So I hope things will be ok now ... I keep saying that for a long time now , but I will try to update as sson as possible ...



... Oh and btw , TO ALL CRAZY BABEL FISH RIDERS : I love you guys , you guys are mental .... ahahaha ... Thx a lot Beckie for the spotlight , feel really honored and proud , a great great present ... And the male elf , won't be here in this image ... but surely in an other one I'm working on ... thx for your patience ... :love:

@ layetut : Thx a lot mate !!

@ gpepper : you're so right Gillou I saved so much time in not looking for settings configurations on this , It did help me a lot ... except it's still not that friendly with my machine ... I got the twice number of PaintFX polys than the last time ... :argh: ... maybe I should put more rocks and less grass ... :scream:

@ Gunilla : weeeee ! thx a lot Gunie , today I'm working on the character pose of the last elf for my portfolio w00t ! ... But I do , I'm hammering like a nut , have to hurry , but some whip doesn't hurt anybody right ? ... did I say that loud ? :scream:

@ rattlesnake : Thx a lot Bro !! believe me I didn't spent a lot of time on these ... God bless maya and his sculpt polygon tool : NURBS sphere - sculpt poly tool - converted to polys ... Reeeeaallly fast ... But I believe you could do way better with ZB ...

@ oceanbluesky : thx a lot mate ! ahaha , yeah you're right I didn't noticed ... I put rocks randomly on the scene ... thx for pointing , gonna change that !

@ Jedi-Juice : thx a lot mate !!

Nice to discover the first steps about environment... that start really good... I just imagine this look a bit different that you did in the previous challenge... the grass appear a bit similar... it's not of course a real problem, but I've imagined something more epic, more magic... more magic land, if you see... but I know it's only the first steps... I keep quiet here while waiting the next update...

I've had also much pleasure to read these pages wrote during I'm in vacation... much fun here and much laugh for me when discovering the "together spamm" in the antic universal langage... un grand moment de CG blabla.... :D

I you already have a precise idea about your goal of compositing, it's of course not necessary...

This latest render is really beautiful... high res for high quality :thumbsup:

Morning Friends !!

@ flaeticia : Thx a lot , glad you like it !!

@ Elendil_le_Grand : Thx a lot Nico !

@ Lemog : In fact as my computer is pretty lazy to render the grass , I rendered it with a layer pass , and I made some tests ... pretty faster for my machine , and way more faster to adjust colors and such ... And thx glad you like that last render ... I also made a 2048x1280 300dpi , for my real Portfolio ...

@ Agou : Thx a lot Da Sophinette !! yes ... the left arm gave trouble ... I tried several poses for it but not really convincing ... arggh ... Women are weird to pose :scream: ...

@ gpepper : and just :bowdown: friend !

@ Medunecer : Thx a lot Marco !

@ makaron : 5 peanuts ? almost as manyas for a male elf !! w00t !

@ rattlesnake : Thx a lot my friend , glad you like it !!

@ thebest : ahahaha , thx mate !

@ Gunilla : Thx sweetie , ahahaha , well I hope ... Gonna try to ride the snail and get back to it quickly !!

Yep - looking good! The rock on the right looks a bit strangely lit compared to the tree, but I suppose that will be fixed. Where will the little snail be? And the male elf? :rolleyes:

Great work for the grass... looks very realistic!

Lemog

Morning Cadet... that sounds good... now I prefer a lot the grass... especially in foreground, maybe that need something as a range for it tones... or maybe it's due to the shadows more sweet on the grass than for the rest.

Same feeling about the stone than Gunie... that need bump, more matter to catch the light... especially compared with the tree...
Take care with texturing of branches, that seem suspect ;) or quickly done...

In any case, that comes very good and it's the most important, now we can touch your final way of mood... good... and courage :wavey:

Zapan
05-05-2006, 06:54 AM
Morning Friends !! :)

@ Gunilla : w00t ! Thx a lot Gunie ... Yes , the rocks gave me troubles with that actual lighting set ... I wanted to have something pretty dark on the foreground as a forest entrance and highlighted from the back ... pretty tricky because rocks were all white due to the highlight and after completly dark because of the blue light from the front :banghead: ... but of course I have to make lot of tweaking to set it right ... thx for cheering !

@ Streen : thx a lot for the support , gladly appreciated !

@ coochaki : thx a lot mate !!

@ shakes : Thx a lot John !!

@ thebest : ahah pretty much where it actually stands !

@ Lemog : Thx Laurent ... yes much taweaking needed on the lighting to fix the rocks problems ... gonna look into it today ... and see if I can find a better lighting with the foliage ... And yes , branches ... always giving me troubles , because the displacement works weirdly on these since it doesn't have the same size than the rest ... but I hope it will look better with foliage and stuff ... Thx a lot for cheering !

Cya soon , cheers ,

Oh wow, agree with Shakes, really like your portfolio render! Kind of pulls together the color scheme you're working with...

The grass is Maya paint effects? (Sorry I haven't read through your entire thread yet but I'm keeping up now...and I remember reading the grass was PaintFX...is that right? Probably the best I've seen in Maya! Great job!)

Of course, it's very pleasant, I like a lot, I'm just a bit afraid by these strong and dark shadows when you must set the element together, especially to manage easily the lighting of elves... I must acknowledge to be curious to discover how you planed to manage that... waiting for more... go cadet :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Hey Stepane,

I really like the grass and trees so far , the tree leaves give a dreamlike feel to the image and you tend to feel the girl elf is dreaming of something:thumbsup: :thumbsup: . A comment on the grass , if you could vary the shades of green a bit I think it could make the image a little better but this is just a personal preference of mine.

Keep going and good luck.

Oué grosse ! :scream: .... in fact all them 3 are pretty much finished , but MR don't want to hear about SSS with the displace of the trees ... So I will have to composite after with Photoshop

@ oceanbluesky : Thx a lot , and yes grass is maya PaintFX !

@ InTerceptoV : thx a lot mate , I just love your stuff , really thank you for the input ... and yeah , pretty much have to rush now ...

@ dagann : thx , yeah the shader still react weirdly with this actual specular ... have to fix it ...

@ Laeticia : thx Grosse ! :scream: ... tv shows ? did you smoke again ? :curious: ahaha :D

@ Lemog : Thx a lot Laurent , very pleased you like how things are evolving , yes maybe I over contrasted the image , I tried to tweak the contrast and the saturation to see the global mood .. The Elves should be placed in the highlighted area , so ... I think it might be ok , but of course no doubts I will have to play with the compositing to fix values and stuff ..

@ mmoir : thx a lot Mike , yes still struggling with the grass shader to make it looking better ... and yes "magical" is kind of look I'm aiming for ... thx mate !

I 'm still digging the lights and shaders to unify all the stuff together , I will try to find a trick to include the ladies during this weekend ... Have a great one rockin' people !

i really like all the work u did on the leaves and branches,exelent job there!. i think as some guys said that the shadows maybe are a bit strong..what about adding some self ilumination to the grass material?...anyway i think ull solve taht very well in compositing process, you have an exellent eye for that, keep going man...this is rocking hard!

agou

Anyway I just wanted to THANK YOU ALL FOR THE BEST SUPPORT I EVER GOT during these last 2 months ... I will definitely try to get a finished image of these elves , maybe not exactly this one tho ... :curious:

I will surely keep following your progress during the last steps in yours , supporting and spamming as much as I can ....

So I guess this is it ... jeez ... :cry:

@ Gunilla : Zillion of thank you my dear , for the great support you gave me in this one too :love: , apparently whip wasn't enough ... maybe next time , some stone throwing will rush me a little bit more ... :curious:

Well Cadet... in the same time, sad news and good news... I'm happy for you about this job... but I'm very sad about your latest decision to stop your challenge...

Of course, job is most important, but I'm not really sure you will be oblige to work 18 hours by day and 7/7 days to complete it, not ?

As many of us, you must take some rest, for your body and your mind... you certainly could do like me... there's now more of 7 months I'm more of busy in my job, and even it's not very easy all the time, I'm trying to keep these shorts but good moments of rest with this passion, and with you all.

The only good recipe is to manage precisely all that, while thinking precisely what to do, in what time and how... like that, all appear easier, and possible.

So, now, I'm waiting impatiently your resting moment of snail's update... Go Cadet... your power is in your hands... you can do it, you must do it... for us, and especially for you :thumbsup:


Lolo...

And as already mentioned, the models are not lost and if you're really sure you can't continue now, I'm looking forward to see this finished later...
Good luck with the job!:)

I can't wait to see your next work or this thread finished.

Anyway, you have a new fan now.:)

Bon courage pour ton boulot!
