Recent Update:

This is concept zbrush model that i did before I actually start the actual hires. I needed to do to get some proportiional issues sorted out. I have actually started the actual hi res already and it will have more resolution to play than this one because this is all one mesh except for the hair and eyes. Also i haven't modeled the hands yet coz I am still playing aroung with the design.
The head design is not finished yet but hopefully will be done soon. I am hoping to finish the hi res model early next week and I already have started on the low poly model which I will be uploading soon. It will probably changed because everything is not final.

Here are another progree on my Warlord. It's a Head Design. I will be doing further development on the overall design of my character coz i feel it is not "alien" enough.

I definitely got influenced by the predator dreads but i just noticed the urukai influenced as well.... I was more kinda getting elements from King Kong coz it's one my all-time favourite films.

Finally got some time to work on this. I have been concepting his head and body but I haven't started on the armour yet. I kinda don't want the armour to dictate the overall design and rahter compliment it instead so once i am done with the body i shall put some incredibly heavy metal onto him!

vshen
02-24-2008, 05:16 PM
madshooter: Thanks, All the best to you as well.

Loukor:Yeah i might start modeling the base mesh of him already while i am designing the armour and artefact for him.

No major changes just a little curve adjust... I just felt it needed it.

Here is a color test.... I'm not really sure about color yet so i'll play around with it for a while. Also there's some changes andthings I want to add to the body design so it's kinda everywhere at the moment.

I have a name for my character now! KORAN.
I'm concepting an armour for my warlord and myweapon..... any suggestions?

madshooter
02-25-2008, 07:48 AM
I have been searching for Armours but couldn't find a good one. All I can say is don't go for heavy armours for your character, put some light armour around him. Also you can show all the details on his body, muscles, veins, scales ect....:) As soon as I find a good armour/weapon ref I will post it. Keep going dude You are doing a great job:)

Thanks again for the links madshooter! I'm really digging the morning star and the axe looking weapon isn't bad either. Definitely helpful.

I agree with little armour as possible. It was my intention not to put heavy armour on him or cover him up with a lot of it. That's why I designed him without it coz I didn't want the armour to dictate the overall design and I wanted him to be agile and too much armour will restrict him from a lot of movements.

cool...i like the color scheme for the character's body. can't wait how's he looks like with the armor and weapon. =)

Really nice character... He looks amphibious in the last sketch. I'll keep an eye on this one.

vshen
02-25-2008, 11:54 PM
Thanks for your comments guys!

Imagolith: He does look amphibious come to think of it.. I think it has to do with the greens and yellows. I am still experimenting with different colors so it might change and I haven't finalized his overall look yet.

syncmax: I am really paying close attention on the armour design right now because I really want to get the look right. I don't really want to put too much armour on him because I don't want it to restrict his movement coz I want him be fairly agile. I want to have a bit realism into it even though it is a video game character.

I am also in the process of designing his weapon so hopefully i should have all those posted very soon. I think I'll concept Koran for the rest of the week before I commit to him in 3d.... It is very tempting to start modeling him since everyone has started but there is still a lof of design elements I am still not sure of.

really great work on the concept. I agree completely that this doesnt need a massive amount of armor. He has strong character as it is now and heavy, overwhelming armor would just clutter the final piece. Really great work, im looking forward to updates

That's a great face/head, it seems alive, as if it's looking at me :thumbsup:

vshen
02-27-2008, 09:18 PM
Just doing some slight variations of the head design. I like the the shape of the head already but i feel it needs a bit more tweaking just to get bit more uniqueness in to it.
I am also trying to explore different faces of actorsthat suits the actual design and personality. Any suggestions?

I like what you have done so far. I'll keep an eye on this one...

Good luck! :)

Yea looking really good! I think the character would do good with a 2hand type of weapon, suits his muscular body! thats only my thoughts though.
Very nice overall

I'm lovin' your concept especially the color test. I definitelt can't wait to see your next update.


P.S Even though the link was inteded for vshan. it's was pretty helpful to me. THANKS!

vshen
02-28-2008, 01:28 AM
Thanks for your comments guys, I have a few more concepts to be uploaded soon.


kmanning: I agree, I just need to design in a way to make him still look cool and powerful without cluttering him with a lot of metal stuff.

XTitan: Thanks a lot. I am still designning slight variations for his face but hopefully I can keep the same mood.

cyberarts: Thanks, you've got some promising silhouettes on your thumbnails yourself.

DefiledVisions: I am certainly considering a 2 hand type weapon as one of the concepts as soon as i finalize his face and body.

StacyOgie: Thanks for your comments, I'll try to update some concept over the next few days, I am hoping I can get some free time to actually do them.
Which link was intended for me?

madshooter
02-28-2008, 05:52 AM
What :scream: more concepts, Ahh.. I just can wait to see it modeled:)

vshen
02-28-2008, 09:44 AM
Yeah I still have a few design issues with it and hopefully I can allocate some time over the next few days.

syncmax
02-29-2008, 02:04 AM
Great so far! i think the head design is already good enough =)

Yes go ahead with the minimum armor for this character. He already had a very strong body structure. Show his true power! =D

madshooter

No updates yet:sad:

vshen

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been struggling all of last week to get any decent time to work on this but i have finally put some in on the weekend. My design has changed a bit because the lower part of Koran's body will now be a quadriped like so he will be like an alien centaur.

I will upload the other deisgn later today when i get home... but here is the head concept i did in zbrush and I am currently working on the base mesh right now and i hope to bring that to zbrush pretty soon.

I will post my sketches later today when I get home from work and will also post the basemesh that I have started. I want to finish that very soon so I can start on Zbrush work. I still have design issues with the character and still yet to finalize a design on the artefact.

Thanks madshooter, hopefully i can get a few more updates in very soon. I really wanna get the highpoly version moving soon and sort out all the design issues because it's not 100% yet.
