modeling of the knight's head, it gives an idea of the style. Hope you like it !

Crin
03-02-2006, 09:32 PM
He looks very young! Is this intended? nice stylised look though, it will fit well with the whole junk theme!

He looks very young! Is this intended? nice stylised look though, it will fit well with the whole junk theme!

yes it's intented, he wants to be a knight but don't have a real horse, money and castle....just is imagination and his motivation :)

03-03-2006, 03:19 PM
Like the head greg.
Great anatomy and original design. But I'm not fond of the hair on a texture, shading way. I like the form but it will be difficult to make it not looks like plastic. But I know you will make it cool, just waiting to see more work.
He looks very young. Is it a choice ??

Good luck

03-03-2006, 03:36 PM
Hey monks, looks like a really fun idea you've got. The concept looks full of life! I'll be keeping an eye on your thread as your idea has 1 or 2 similarities to mine. I'm interested is seeing how you're going to handle that horse made from junk :)

Pete.

[EDIT: ..And heres another vote for that saucepan helmet!]

monks
03-03-2006, 03:50 PM
MichaelMotion & Stefan Stavrev > thanks men :)

authentic > i agree for the haire, the texture is just a test, i'll probably use a simple color...very hard to remove the "plastic effect" from this type of form...
And yes he's very young, as i say to Crin : he wants to be a knight but don't have a real horse, money and castle....just is imagination and his motivation.

sergioKomic & Pete2003 : thanks ! and yeah ! God save the saucepan helmet ! :scream:

body modeling wip, and the famous saucepan !hope you like it ;)

That's great greg. Nice progress. May I suggest that the gridle could be less tight from the body (mettre les ceintures un peu plus laches) ??

monks
03-08-2006, 01:11 PM
authentic >> thanks Vincent :) i will test it tonight !

funkyboss
03-08-2006, 01:37 PM
Nice shot.
Keep the godd work dude! Agree with authentic about gridles, it could be more convincing.
Good luck

OberonX
03-08-2006, 02:23 PM
I'm not sure his hair should be sticking out of the bottom of the pot, unless it has a major hole in it :)

Lemog
03-08-2006, 02:28 PM
Good work and good design Greg... maybe his torso is too much square... not... agree with Authentic about the griddle... plus lâches... ça fera encore ressortir son look "fil de fer"... good continuation :thumbsup:

Hi Greg!!

Good luck!
Your concept is original!
Maybe the saucepan could be a little dented? But if it's his first tournament!

Great comic style, no more to add, he is clean like this.
Nice and funny lance,weird!
Fine details too.

Fine work greg, as usaul. I like the color you've made.I would have 2 little crit.
I don't understand what is the sort of aprt of the helmet at the top. I think it was better without.
I didn't see before, but maybe the neck of your character is a little too taper. You can compare his form to a A you know. Too thin at top or to large at bottom ?? I d'on't know really.

monks
03-22-2006, 09:31 AM
hi vincent !

thanks for your coment ! yes the metalic part part on the helmet was just a test...i'm not conviced too.

i agree with you about the neck, the modeling is not totally finished...the shoulder need more work too ! i'll work on it :)

Excellent greg. He's really cool with textures. Even you don't finish it for the end of the challenge I hope to see the whole picture soon.

Ps : maybe a little more volume (displace or bump I don't know) on the front part of the barrel ?

Lemog

Heheh... Don Quichote on a tricycle:P Funny idea. It will be a long journey if he`s just starting his way from the doorstep, but a very short one if he`s just seeking for the nearest windmill:beer: I`d expect it look best when photorealistically textured, but it`s just a very late suggestion and my personal feeling... and the style I usually choose:) Looking fwd the final entry. Good luck!!

It's the story of a young boy who wants to become a knight. He's poor, he has no castle and he don't know anything about knight's rules.
But there's a knight's tournament near his village, so he makes a crazy horse and curious weapons and he's going to win this tournament ! What a crazy journey !

Someone might be disappointed how "clean" is this image, but I have to say, that I love how it looks. It is almost like shot from real life... realistic yet cartoony. You have my compliments :thumbsup: One point might be your depth issue - colors looks pretty simillar from foreground to background. Little grey-blue mix on background hill/village will do it to me, but it is for sure only up to your feeling. Wish you good luck :thumbsup:

But on mine at your work the same problem, as at mine... The Sky is made not so interesting, in your work the sky borrows a lot of place and without clouds is looked is empty a little.
The poor guy has very much liked me, it is a pity that most likely will kill it on tournament.
