. This is going to be the first actual contest I have ever entered. Winning isnt really my goal, but more so the practice, having fun and learning some good quality low poly modeling. Im anxious, and nervous with this war that has begun. I have begun to undergo a concept that I came up with. A female general shadow....*
..Her name, Assyanah.. F..

I hope I can complete this. She will be an essential key to the CGsociety army and I know she can help win this war for us. These upcoming nights will be cold. dark....**9.....I am not afraid to sweat and bleed to help the caus..E/..*

The following .. is the first draft i made. I did a little doodle to come up with an icon for the DW webpage. * in the end I came out with something like below show-n. its only a rough 5 minute scribble...But it is something I am leaning towards.. **7..

I will keep this warjournal updated as much as possible.

. somewhat fleshing the idea out of a female general. still trying to come up with color scheme and what to add or remove or build on. im thinking you will not see her eyes and she wont have a weapon. but who knows.

we'll see.

gotta speed the concept part up if i wanna keep on my own schedule.
hopefully have the rest of the concept fleshed out tonight or tomorrow.

- since we are CG society, i tried to incorporate our colors into the character.
- im still gonna go with the covered eyes.
- changed the flow of the cloth coming out from under the cape. also thought the ends of it kinda turning to dust/fading away would be kinda neat and add that extra umpf.
- thinkin of adding some wierd lettering on the back, along with the CGtalk logo.
- still dont know if ill add a weapon. play it by ear

Lookin good, good and Mrs. Claus coloured - but she's an ancient old thing so it's ok. I thought that spiky gauntlet was a weapon for a second, silly me thinking you were crazy.

concepts a comin!
well just these 3. i will include the weapon, no doubt about it.
but here is what i was foolin around with earlier tonight. might be ready to model right away!

- the one where she is holding the weapon, i bunked up her hand pretty good. but thats not really the focus here. just need something to reference in the end!

layed out the uv map for the weapon. started workin on the high poly version of it.
this will be my first "real" attempt at using the normal map method...ive played with it before...
but havent really used it before...why not start now!!

anyways, the weapon! simple colors of course, and a simple transp. map on there too...just gettin it all set up.

playing around with the textures and what not on the weapon. trial and error for me right now. takin out things, addin things. etc etc.


it was a lot brighter before but it looked way to clean and off. so i darkened it up a bit.
still a wip. etc.

well...im workin on the main character now. im just workin on half of her right now but i did
a quick duplicate just to see what she looks like, etc etc.

right now shes sitting at 4400 tris.
that leaves me with about 1600 to add her cape and other fine details.

so im gonna work a bit more on gettin rid of some faces (in the knee, possibly face area, etc).
i dunno. for my first real "low poly" character ever im happy with it. mind you i probably
have done some things wrong...so if you see anytthing...let me know!! :)

also...when is it the right time to use 3 sided faces?
when i was doin some research, i always noticed that most of the model
would have 4 sided polys, but then you always see some 3 sided here
and there...just curious.


anyways, a wip!

I like what you are doing with the character's head in the hoody but I think you should work her silhouette more to define the characters's shape more and make it more recognizable.

Take care of the proportion, especially of the arms. It seems to be far too elongated, giving her an short monkey-ish look. Its either that or the lower half could use some elongation.

Good luck!

I really liked the white trim on the front of her hood in the concept, are you going to bring that back in the texture?


I agree with Yung though, it looks like you might be helped by getting some good reference for the female form and working on her proportions.

Keep it up!
