HARDCORE MODELING CHALLENGE #8: JOHN MCCLANE (DIE HARD-1988) - FULL MODEL

(MY WIP THREAD LINK (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=208&t=479083))

Thank God! I've finished the model before the deadline. Actually there are lots to do but i've decided very lately to make a full body for this model and most of the model has been done on last ten days on and off. I couldn't decide about the pose and changed it few times. Then came up with this pose. I don't have time to get feedback about the pose so i hope you'll like it. Textures, hair, pose, hands and fine details still need work, so i'll continue this model on the WIP forums after the challenge.

About the beauty shot,
I've worked on the textures and shaders on last 2 days and made the render tests on last day. So i don't consider the shot as a beauty render exactly =)
Please see the below nontextured renders- which has a better lighting setup- and the turntable to evaluate the model.


It was great to participate this challenge guys. I enjoyed it a lot.
Thanks for the great support and nice comments on my threads. They mean a lot to me.

There are some great entries on the challenge. It will be hard time for voters to pick one of them.
Good luck everyone!

Beauty Render with difuse
http://img484.imageshack.us/img484/185/beauty5mp0.jpg

General Maximus Decimus Meridius
Ok, finally done, it has been a blast this contest. I have gained alot of feedback and great critiques from you guys so i have to thank you so much. I couldnt work as much as i said i would in the model ( my frined introduced me to batlefield 1942... damit ), but i did worked alot on him, and i think its possible to notice the progress on my wip thread.
I think i have seen the beginning of gladiator a zillion times, i wish i had a blue ray or HD-DVD version of it, trying to see all details of his costume, and the horse one was extremly dificult.
During the course of the project i decided that i would make this a game model, so all details were extracted from high poly objcets to create the normal maps. i tryed to keep a relatively low polycount for what would be considered a current gen model ( it has 6000 tris and uses 2 maps sets of maps with difuse, normal and specular ).
When the model was done i could hv started another model, but i couldnt resist to model his horse ( what is a general without a horse? ) so in the last 2 days i have being working on the horse. The horse has 2500 tris ( more or less ) and also uses a normal, difuse and specular map.
I have started to model his dog, but i noticed that it would be too much information, since the topic was the actor itself, so i droped it off and started to make a turning table video. I have uploaded it, but right now its still waiting the aproval, so hopefully i will edit this post with the link to it.
Anyway, it was a great comp, lots of amazing works, this hardcore modelling challenges are really awesome, maybe one day pixologic decide to sponsor one with a copy of zbrush 3 as a prize :P.
Thanxs for all the feedback

HARDCORE MODELING CHALLENGE #8: JOHN MCCLANE (DIE HARD-1988) - FULL MODEL

(MY WIP THREAD LINK (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=208&t=479083))

Thank God! I've finished the model before the deadline. Actually there are lots to do but i've decided very lately to make a full body for this model and most of the model has been done on last ten days on and off. I couldn't decide about the pose and changed it few times. Then came up with this pose. I don't have time to get feedback about the pose so i hope you'll like it.

Please see the below nontextured renders- which has a better lighting setup- and the turntable to evaluate the model.

COMMENTS:

I have worked hard on this project. I am glad that I took part in this challenge. It gave me a chance to learn things that I probably wouldn't have done until the next challenge. It has also given me some insight on what I need to work on. And that I still have a long way to go. This has to be the best model that I created.

I know that the beauty render doesn't match any of the scenes in the movie. Though I did model him in the time frame the movie was made. I hope that that was ok.

Anyway I did learn alot. I hope this is to your liking. I would like to hear your comments on my thread. Tell me what you think of it.

Lee, Enter The Dragon WIP Thread (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=208&t=485688)

This was a great project to work on and develop my character modeling and texturing skills. There is always room for improvement though.

Time to complete: 12 days or around 50-60 hours. Most of my time was spent texturing the face and trying to capture the likeness of it with modeling details. This was difficult to do when bringing the model back and forth from Z-Brush to 3d Studio Max 9 because of the perspective differences.

This was a great learning experience for me. Thanks to CgTalk for creating competitions like these to encourage artists to learn more and progress with their art.













Here are links to the orthos of the model parts before attaching them and rigging the model. I've rendered them here with default lighting and no shader.

Best Overall - KrakenCMT's Conan

I had no time for this one in the end, but there's some nice stuff in here, it would have been a tough contest :)

I gave it to CMT despite some weak lighting and shading, buy it's still the best overall work, and the most effort as well, claybub got best modleing/best bust, since this is meant to be a modeling contest after all, and his is the best actual modeling (Seriously Roberto, you have to include a 'best grey shaded model' category in these votes), Misu had to get best likeness for his final render, but the actual grey shaded model by itself would not have got my vote.

Very nice work everybody.

Few Comments: I agree with oddity. I think "Hardcore Modeling Challenge" is less "hardcore" because of the addition of texture and lighting to the challenge. This makes the judging criteria a bit difficult. I would like to see a future challenge where the focus is about modeling. :)

with those who are saying the focus should have been more on modelling they are correct but it was roberto's intention for this to be modelling based from the start anyway, the textures etc was something alot of people went ahead with on their own steam (but that being said, texturing wasn't excluded from the challenge). The votes should be going on the modelling, which hopefully they are....

also roberto has said that the next challenge will be strictly modelling only not textures/shading

This was very difficult to vote on since many of the entries had more to do with texturing/shading than hardcore modeling. This being the hardcore modeling forum i will vote on modeling only. However, if it was a modeling and texturing concest i would say Misu's entry is the best.

roberto,

there should be more "best xxxxxx", there is an unbalanced judgement between textured to non textured busts. lets say 2 busts are amazing, the one with the texture will win.
thats why i believe we need to have "best textured bust" "best non textured bust"
or "most accurate textured likeness" and "most ... without a texture" etc etc..

its not fair for those guys who textured and the guys who textured and those who didnt to compete over the same title.

btw, this is one hell of a challange!

robo3687
05-08-2007, 12:55 PM
i agree with warpy in regards to the use of textures....i've noticed people saying things like "it was hard to vote because the likeness wasnt there but then the shading/texturing just brought it out"....and since it was stated by roberto that the voting was to be solely on modelling and disregarding the shading entirely.

I think the only sensible solution to avoid future complications such as this is to just strike texturing/shading from all future modelling challenges, after all they're meant to be about modelling anyways....I know the next one is going to be like this, I just hope they all are from now on.

that's b/c it's soooo hard not to....it's hard not to give the artist his or her props for a ( overAll job wellDone ) ....that's why texturing should of never been apart of the challenge to point where it would say "texturing is not allowed"

Ok a compromise...

In this challenge texturing is kosher, because I did not say that artists COULD NOT do it.



Fair enough, but keep in mind that the principal judging criteria for this challenge should be the modeling.



NEXT challenge (either the ANIMALS IN ACTION, or the ONE WEEK STAR WARS TRIBUTE) will be another story.

I agree that the models should be judged for best modeling regardless of textures having said that, texturing is still a very big skill in the world of modeling. And should not be just forgotten and banished to the nether world...

There should be another catagory in this, Best Texturing.

Beauty renders ALL non textured and allow 1 or 2 800x600 textured pics that are optional if you want to be part of the catagory.

ok i've seen this arguement everytime a new challenge starts...

I do believe that texturing should not be apart of the challenge...

BUT we shouldn't completely disbar it either. Like Stinger said, texturing is a big part of the world of modeling.

So we should have texturing separated from the modeling... like what we did in this challenge have them post a shaded and an unshaded model... (if they want to do shading) and then have a section for "best textured bust" and "best textured body" (this is an example for this challenge). That way people won't be distracted by the texturing...

these are just my thoughts... and I know they have probably been said before but I thought I would say it again.

Out of courtesy to Roberto, so he doesn't have to wade through a bunch of non-vote related posts to tally the votes, I suggest we move this discussion to the next challenge thread. I've posted my thoughts about this issue there.

It was really hard to pick one for each category from lots of great pieces.
Here are my votes:




Most Accurate Likeness - Mihai Anghelescu "misu" (Maximus Decimus)
Best Full Body - Marc Mordelet "visionmaster2" (Dracula)
Best Bust - Ovidiu Voica "tigertiger" (King Leonidas)
Best Overall Entry - Mihai Anghelescu "misu" (Maximus Decimus)




About the discussions,
I believe that misu would do better untextured model than the current, if the texturing was out for the challenge. But it was in. As all entrants read the rules and start the challenge within the light of these rules, imho it won't be fair to complain about textured models/entries for this challenge. Let's discuss these point's on next challenge's topic.

That's right. Everybody probably would have worked a bit differently. There's no need to remove the entry he worked so hard on. Let's just keep these issues in mind for the challenges to come. :)

hey, hey, hey misu...don't be silly man, there's no need to remove yourModel....I don't think anyone here is upSet ( certainly not me ) about the texturing part of the challenge....I think people are just having a lil trouble voting properly since the models look so good textured.....besides your shaded model is awesome too....so don't worry about it.....reading text on the web can be misleading in terms of what emotions are behind them...that's why smiley faces were invented....:)

Hello misu.

I don't mean to clutter this thread, but I don't think people were complaining really. And certainly not about your entry. Don't be silly. Your entry was great as you can see from all the votes you've gotten. There were close calls for many voters, and I think that's why a clearer, voting guidelines would have helped.

Great challenge btw Roberto. :)

Lots of nice work Likeness modeling is really tough.

Most accurate likeness ,Misu

Best full body KrackenCMT, turx a really close second. This was a tough one to decide

Best bust, Claybub

Best overall Misu

As far as the texturing debate goes here is my two bits. When modeling something like a likeness I feel that texturing is very important in order to achieve the likeness. The color of the eyes , the hair, the value of the eyebrows next to the value of the skin all help to make the model look more like the person,if done correctly. I would hate to see texturing totally eliminated form this modeling challenge I think it should be considered challenge by challenge. If texturing is eliminated then I think hair plug ins should also be eliminated and the hair modeled as well.

That's rather been denied by claybub, whose bust shows a great likeness of Ian McKellan as Gandalf.
You really don't need any textures to get a likeness - if the model is good enough, and that is rather the point here. Texturing, shaders, lighting can be used to hide a weak model as well as to enhance a good one.
I'm guilty of that myself at times, which is why I like to be forced to keep it clean with a bare model.

You really don't need any textures to get a likeness -

DISAGREE! Likeness means replicating a human(in this case) from real life and in real life its not just mere a model, but skin textures and lighting conditions. Yes modeling plays a big role as in if you have mesh correctly formed and details close enough to existing reference, it will definately help. But hairs, texturing and lighting plays an important role in completing the finished model too.
If you show a non-textured model to a laymay who doesnt know what 3d modeling is, he'll ask is this supposed to be a silver painted sculpture or something? Afterall this challenge was to make a believable character and not just a sculpture like 3d model.

I vote for Misu for Bust and Accurate Likeness.

if you want to do things other than modeling then there are other forums. this forum is titled Hardcore Modeling. keep it to modeling only. the participants didnt do anything against the rules either. its how the rules or challenges are set up is our topic of discussion.

besides, if you look up traditional portrait sculptures you wont find many that are painted, except the wax sculptures. bottom line, the forum is called modeling, and even has a "hardcore" attached to it. :) so guess what you should be doing.

HARDCORE MODELING CHALLENGE #8: JOHN MCCLANE (DIE HARD-1988) - FULL MODEL

(MY WIP THREAD LINK (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=208&t=479083))

Thank God! I've finished the model before the deadline. Actually there are lots to do but i've decided very lately to make a full body for this model and most of the model has been done on last ten days on and off. I couldn't decide about the pose and changed it few times. Then came up with this pose. I don't have time to get feedback about the pose so i hope you'll like it. Textures, hair, pose, hands and fine details still need work, so i'll continue this model on the WIP forums after the challenge.

About the beauty shot,
I've worked on the textures and shaders on last 2 days and made the render tests on last day. So i don't consider the shot as a beauty render exactly =)
Please see the below nontextured renders- which has a better lighting setup- and the turntable to evaluate the model.


It was great to participate this challenge guys. I enjoyed it a lot.
Thanks for the great support and nice comments on my threads. They mean a lot to me.

There are some great entries on the challenge. It will be hard time for voters to pick one of them.

I know the model can be improved alot and i'll do that when i'll find some free time . The weeks during the challenge were extremly busy at work for me and i can say that the biggest challenge was to find time to work on the model ;)
