Prisoner
01-05-2002, 07:17 PM
Dammit man, really good!!
how u did the hair?:D :D :D
just one question, you make the ear like the center of the head? just like the poles os a sphere?

cerreto
01-05-2002, 07:48 PM
How cool is that hair ! i wish lw had something like shag (i assume its shag turned to polys ?) cool so far !

froggie
01-05-2002, 08:20 PM
une 'tite suggestion...tu devrais mettre ton dossier ailleur que la ou tu mets tes images a imprimer, entre autre, ca evitera ke 'lon aille jeter un oeil la ou on devrait pas en remontant d un niveau =)..enfin mtnt autant tt deplacer sauf ce dossier la comme on connait le chemin...

sinon super bien partie! et excellent que tu ai mis ta progression ^^

hate de voir la suite =)

a+!

pascal_blanche
01-06-2002, 12:32 AM
yup I used shag hair, thx for the tip froggie.. you never know...:D fixed now....
prisonner: you guessed right.. but usually I start with the poles on top, it`s hard to manage them from the side.

Matt: you`re dead :D

chrom
01-06-2002, 07:25 AM
really cool design man, the hair rock

but hmmmm, use only the eyes on top or bottom, eh this is my opinion

and the tissue is great like it


cheers

splendiferious my friend. I'm awaiting the appearance of his artificial appendage. That ought to be good. :D

Y-Guy
01-07-2002, 10:44 PM
Somehow, this is exactly Pascal's style... the structure and feel of the character resebles 'the Pascal character'... or is it just me? :rolleyes:

HA HA i knew i could get you to do another great model if you did this competition ! this is turning out to be a one of your coolest characters ! looking forward to more

looks very cool indeed... Can we have pix for other views? =)

Triadis
01-08-2002, 06:10 PM
Looks great!

I'm curious, are his pants and torso one mesh? Or seperate objects next to eachother?

-Alex

pascal_blanche
01-08-2002, 06:13 PM
they where two different objects, made separatly ( like the arms, hands..) then I used the connect tool to join evrything.. maybe I will disconnect the pants later, but it helps a lot to fit with the body ( connect tool create nice jonctions)

Man.. i really hate this prostesic arm :( gonna have to work on another design, this one will not go really further...

fellipe
01-08-2002, 09:29 PM
some competition to matt's work, at last...=)

Pentagramma
01-09-2002, 01:15 AM
Ouch! That hurts...

What else can I say? Excellent model already - Hail to the King!


P.S.: He looks a little bit with Jack Palance... :)

Equinoxx
01-09-2002, 07:32 AM
Pascal, mate, that's looking excellent. The cybernetic prosthese looks fabulous. Tho won't his pants fall down like this :confused:
I mean, no belt, and it's rest just below his hips . .. .
Give hime a belt with a piraty gunholder :D
What shader are you using anyway, your pieces always look like they have some kind of special shading . . . care to share it :D
looks like a standard material with no specs and glossy, tho it has something else i can't lay my finger on.

In short, It's looking great so far . . .

pascal_blanche
01-09-2002, 10:51 AM
the belt is on its way ;) and new prostesic arm too, and guns, and.. well .. lots of stuff :D thx for the comments guys:D

MadS
01-09-2002, 04:02 PM
Ahhh, now that's a ting o' beauty. :D :cool: :D

I'm almost tempted to jump in this comp myself.... so little time, so much that must be done. *sigh*

Keep the inspiring works coming!

skello
01-09-2002, 05:08 PM
Cool challenge....some awesome work so far!!
BTW. what modeler are you using pascal?? Lightwave?

I will love to take part in the next challenge


cheers.

Deepray
01-09-2002, 07:47 PM
Good work dude... but the 4 eyes apear too little to me... :rolleyes:

Matt-Clark
01-09-2002, 07:59 PM
One minor quibble - the sharp edge between his upper and lower eyes could do with softening out.

yinako
01-09-2002, 10:25 PM
totally cool character Pascal!
where did you get the idea for the character?
Maybe the arm design needs more time huh?.

k equinoxx already answered this question by private message, but i'll share with others ('cause it's one of the purposes of this challenge)
so here is my receipt:
I like to make shadows little more transparent (0.8) and play a bit with Global Lighting: burning up a bit the scene by changing the tint and level (1.2) and turning the Ambient to something else than a reel black (like dark red or dark blue it depends )
then I use mainly one spot (target directionnal light mainly) and push the contrast to 30 and multiplier to 1.1 and then..
I play a bit with fallofs in my maps ... does it repond to your question? the main thing is to remove these boring black shadows and flatten a bit volumes


uptdate coming up soon

I would really like to see the cage of the upper torso. Plus. are you just using meshsmooth? Or are you using tesselate also?

01-10-2002, 10:16 PM
By the way, have I told you guys how cool this challenge idea is. Even though I haven't had much time to work on my own character (School is kickin my arse :) ) I've already learned sooooooo much from all this.

THIS RULES!!! :D :D

Well, not a long time for the torso as I'm still using the same old mesh i'm using for each male character I did a few year ago(
you can see picts of the progression in this interview (http://www.3dsociety.com/printarticle.php3?idea=73) ) I adjusted a few things on it... the biggest part was the arm for now... I work each day one hour (lunch time:D ) so let's say around 12 hours of work...

Deepray: I'll work on some protective tools glasses like for this character.. wanted to do that badly: 4 eyes glasses :D

Prisoner
01-11-2002, 08:44 PM
Yeah, 4 eyes glasses rulez!!
do it, with little round lenses!!:D

Pascal pascal pascal.... what are we going to do with you ?
And you think you have any chance in the 3D world ? Let's be frank with you it's not because you show interest while working at lunch time that you're going to succeed in this field !
Anyway we should have a word with your parents, tell them to lead you somewhere else, where you might make a living out of it, it's only for you own good you know.
Come one drop 3ds max, the only thing it does to you is harm your eyesight !

;) :p

maybe thats the next challenge. Who will be the last pirate standing!

feck you . . . Marry me :D
tho Y-guy is right, he lacks a tail. so you better make him a semi-prostetic tail, the kind where the tail needs to be supported by techstuff, cause it's SOO dang heavy :D

excellentpiece mate.

Awesome?
Guess it's not enough...

As usual, your new character is one of the coolest I've ever seen...Proportions, soft looking shading, modelling...CONCEPT!

I can't wait to see it in final version...

nick
01-15-2002, 01:20 PM
wow amazing work pascal as usual :) I love that design and the hair kicks major ass! That mechanical glove looks extemely difficult to model and time consuming, you the man.

no it's just hollow parts in the mesh.. I try to avoid booleans as much as possible as they mess up your mesh
if you remove a quad or triangle from a mesh and then add meshsmooth on it, it will look better ;)

gotta work on some lionlike tail or something.. i think.. and on a big belt too.. and err ...more details....

MadS
01-15-2002, 04:02 PM
Jesus. You have made a truly exceptional model there, Pascal. My hats off to ya. :) I'd love to see this guy animated. Give him a bigass cutlass to sling over his shoulder.

Very nice details pascal. Is that a transparent section on the arm!? That belt is w!cked, bah! the whole thing is wicked!.

questions: whats your cpu speed? whats the ratio of polys to nurbs? just curious.

Taoizm
01-16-2002, 05:05 PM
very impressive. He just keeps getting cooler and cooler. do you sketch this stuff out on paper first, or do you just dive in with an idea?

pascal_blanche
01-16-2002, 05:06 PM
the character is not that big ni polygons ( ill post a wire) I just added a meshmooth level one)

Just had this character in mind, improvisation... I thought first about the man proportions.. and added hairs to balance the proportions..

01-17-2002, 09:24 PM
how the f*** can you model that great with poly modeling ????im impress!
did u start with a box or you create polygons one by one???
impressive!
really want to see a wireframe!

element

Y-Guy
01-17-2002, 10:10 PM
Polygon modelling has come along way in Max, and I think its very useful now (more than NURBS at least) I dont know about Pascal, but I prefer to start with a box, and just extrude, and edit at the Meshsmooth level, untill I get a nice detailed result. Just know your polyz!:cool:

pascal_blanche
01-17-2002, 11:10 PM
I usualy start from capsules instead of boxes ( so it is capsule modelling I guess :D :D )
for box modelling THE reference is mr Bay Raitt (http://cube.phlatt.net/home/spiraloid/)
read carefully his tuttorials...

and the new growing reference is our friend Martin K (http://24.112.75.247/new/warp.html) ( i'm not kidding ;) )

Awesome.... i don't think any other comments are needed.

The detail is superb, I would love to see him animated.

I have a list of questions:- are you using a cloth plugin. when you rig him for animation what are you going to use (biped or bones) have you any thoughts on how you will rig the hair for movement.

once more.... excellent model. excellent

yup i'm using simcloth (free) to creates my clothes , snapshot them andI refine the modelling in edit mesh.. I'll rig the all thing with physique , if I would go to some animation, I could eventually use some morph tricks to create an impression of dynamic clothes.. as for the hairs, they can be dynamic(shag hiar) .. I use the simcloth simulation to make the move.. (option available in shag hair)

Man! Your work is perfect!

How do you achieve such a degree of subtleties in the details? That's fantastic! I love the way you add subtle details to your models, without polluting the scene... It seems like a paradox :D , no matter how much detail you add, the whole scene always looks clean! I'm really impressed with your work!

Congratulations once more!

Terrible...

This could be the worst model I've ever seen in my life.

It's not chrome, nor does it involve a teapot and where's the lensflare in your renders!?!?!? At least you got the checkerboard pattern in there.

:p :p :p :p :p

Hehe... well what can I say Pascal... love your work. The addition of sunglasses really gives the character personality. There are some minor issues with the bandana but I guess that's just tweaking. :) And also, the lower part of the glasses seem a bit "free floating". How about dividing the head strap and moving it a bit further down on the head? Make it fit more snuggly around him.... well that's just my oppinion. Great work though. Something I can yet only aspire too.
Keep it up. :D

As usual very nice and detailed design. How do you create all the little details (the connection of the strap to itself after it loops round the metal and all those little dipple kind of things, (on the of the glasses, and the shoulders of the coat) Nevermind the modeling, but just the ideas, oh well, perhaps in a fews years I'll have it all figured out, . . . or maybe not ;) Anyway, aside from perhaps a hinge between the lenses, the only crit is the actual color of the glasses, they just ought to be transparent (yeah I got nothing noth'n) Have you tried to rig him yet ?

Cannotwait to see more,

here is the rigged version..

http://alshaheen.net/artists/lobo971/pirate19.jpg
http://alshaheen.net/artists/lobo971/pirate20.jpg

still have to refine some parts , but I was expectng more complications from the pants.. basically the character is separated top/bottom and shoes.. wich means that I attached the vest to the torso to use the same deformations sets.
I used physique and biped for the skelleton.

arrgh forgot the tail again!!! damn damn damn damn...

lildragon
01-22-2002, 05:46 PM
very nice Pascal the pose is calm and makes him look tough but , idealistic, well done, ok have a few crits now that I seen the full mesh

- the right forearm looks a bit squarish, maybe it's the shadows and light, but it looks kinda blocky as it stands

- the three fingers aren't grasping the gun properly, in fact the end digits look to short to bend around the gun handle from this angle :)

- looking at the back of the pants, I would add some more wrinkles back there, cause as it stands he looks like he's wearing poofy pants, kinda like MC hammer's ;) , plus umm he has no buttocks :p

Great work as usual bud, loving it

the pain . . . the agony . . .

totally mad my friend :D

tho in the current pose, it looks like he sin't really comfortable with his prostetic arm . . . it's kind "hanging" out there
and it could be due to way to many hours behind a computer, but i can't for the love of me bend my hand the same angle as his right hand is angled in relation to his wrist/upper arm . . .
nowhere near that angle hurts like hell already.

thumbs up tho.

Die! Die beautiful alien! It kinda reminds me of the tiger charcter from Final Fantasy 7(Red XIII ?), mixed with Cloud's body, really nice job on the whole realxed style! (better than they did ;)) I only have a few nitpicks, the tail kinda needs a little better intigration (compared to the rest) and perhaps a slightly rounded edge on the pants top would make them look more solid, oh yeah and belt-loops :D !

I am sure you have heard it too many times but your work is awesome. Your last render is great. Just a thought - your alien looks in a stationary pose, I think the heavy chain (due to gravity) would hang straight down before it curve to the lower part of the sword.

Pascal ! Absolutely increadible. You are such an inspiration. I love the proportion of this character, so bold and strong. I do have one comment about the tail though. The first post you made including the tail had two images - the top image looks cool (tail looks fine), but the second angle looks odd (to me).

Just a thought :).

The curvature of the tail doesnt look continuous - like the tail has kinks in it (if it helps, I come from South Africa, so I should know what a lion looks like ;-) hehehe - ignore the fact that I live in the city, not the wilderness :D )

A pool of talents, amazing what you can find here. Hi Pascal, im just a fan of your work, the complexity of this model reminds me square pictures works, vary nice model, nice concept and design.

how many time took to build the hole model?did you use 3dsmax? and at last, if you have time can you send-me an 1280x1024 image for my desktop?

Thanks!

his sword looks kinda heavy
although the region where it's attached to the pants is not wrinkled or doesn't look it pulls down

try it
attach a 5 kg weight to you jeans and .....


:D

just kidding


fantastic work, great inspiration to all of us

Looking great. My only crit is for the tail which seems to have a square cross section? Something there doesn't seem right...a bit too angular.

poop i tell ya! nothin but poooop!
lol you know im joking pascal ;)
I love it! awesome shots. I do see some areas that could use work but as if it matters comin from little ol' me, but here i go...

I agree with Matt about the tail. Personally I think a more reptilian like tail would suit him better than a lion tail. Im just not crazy about the hair at the tip. Also the sword is massive like Bytehawk mentioned. Im scared to see how it reacts to him walking. Maybe shrink the sword and set it more to the left. Just some ideas.

Outstanding work pascal. :)

???? ( no textures for this contest right?) ???


I thought I might have read wrong so I looked at the rules again:

"3D: just modelling an rigging, textures are a + "

My pirate already has some of them, many others do too, besides the 2-d pirates nearly all have textures.... I think it would really be more interesting to see at least some color....


Anywho, Awesome model, by all means fantastic work! That mech arm and gauntlet is killer :) .... I wonder if it can handle my big brown boot. Heh, heh, heh :)

Just a quick question though, I have just seen Matt's animation of pirate drawing his sword and wondered are your characters arms long enough to draw that moster sword from its sheath ?

'lo

I agree with Matt. Your model is fantastic, the best you've ever made (even if I love the empereureusseu picture).
But the tail.... Please do something for that tail !!! ;)

Now it's sure, I'm looking for a pizzaiolo job.

You're the winner !!! .... hum? What ? Matt Clark have animated his character ? So Pascal is now running for the second place ?
Not a problem ! Pascal is going to animate his own fellow for the end of the week. Right Pascal ? :D

Krep, the man who's gonna cut your hands off the next time I see you !

AN ANIMATED VERSION !!! Oh yeah baby,baby. I want to see those metal plates on the hand work in perfect harmony !

This would put you so out of reach of Matt, it can't possibly be possible, hehehe (that saying was brought to you by "stupid sayings annon".)

Although, there is so much secondary motion, what with the hair and jacket and chain and glasses and stuff, I dont know if it is practical (What !? Is that a challenge from a lowly pleb? Why yes I think it is....)

Awesome

Can we see a wire of the pants? (without smooth)

Pouvons nous voir une vue fil de fer du pantalon? (sans le smooth)

01-29-2002, 11:19 PM
I see a lot of polys with more than 4 points and I wonder, 'cause I know a lot of people try most of the time to use 4 or 3 points polygons, I guess it's more predictable when smoothing... do you keep that in mind when you're working ? (btw this is a question not a criticism;))

Well..once again,Woooooow ! great work ( I guess you heard that one before ;) )


salut!

it happens when I start to chamfer the edges and some vertexes.. but I try to avoid it if possible yep.. usually, my meshes start really clean and.. hem.. after a while, it become a huge mess :p

One minor nag about the tail. It seems to come straight out of his ass instead of prolonging the spine.

Again, awesome!

01-30-2002, 04:37 PM
Hey Pascal.

Great work you've got there. Seeing your model made me think you probably had a perfect mesh. But I'm happy to see that even you have some polys overlapping each other. Thank Gawd for that.

Once again. Great work. :)

That sure became great, Pascal :D Real awesome detailing and style you got going there. Im a little bit biased against those folded-over pants (I think it is) around his waist anyway, looks sorta odd compared to the rest but except that lil part I really dig it ;)

Howard Day
01-31-2002, 05:24 AM
Good job, Pascal. The only thing I've got a complaint about (besides the pants...) is the lack of textures. As soon as this challenge is over, you should map this guy. Now that'd be fun to watch.

Very nice work so far. Just wanted to point out a little detail thats been bugging me for a while. If you follow the lines of the characters abdomen to the intersection (assuming humanoid male proportions) not only are his pants extremely close to falling clear off, but whatever kind of male apparatus he has in those pants is in danger popping right out the top of the pants ;) But seriously there seems to be a large differnce between where the musculature indicates his crotch should be and where the pants ride...(just follow the natural V of his abdomen to where it intersects only about an inch below the top of his pants)...which also comes into play with the location of the tail...since the spinal cord would end just above the pelvis and the pelvis appears to end just as it enters the pants, the tail sticking out of the pants in the back would have to be much higer, unless it is indeed growing out of a slightly lower and most unusal location :p

For, (i hope) a first challenge, you have shot very heavy....

Pascal

As i begun to see your WIP, i was like "hmm" but as i read through all the replies and saw all the updates on the character , the anxiety to see the final Renders just kept growing, and off course once i got to the arnod renders then i was like DAMN!!! Too AWESOME, i am astonished .
I love the creature but what i personally like the most is the fact that the character has personality, even on the stills you can see his personality, i love that , it has character,


Unfortunatelly i still havent seen all the other work from all the other ARTISTS but with this im like DAMN!!!!

i take off my hat
wow Very Impressive work!!!

kind of like a new inspiration

Sincerely

alx :D
