Adventure/Action game:

Sanguin - the red penguin ECO-avenger

A penguin left for dead in a pool of oil in an artic covered in oil derricks, with reddened irritated skin and a lot of guns, sets out to battle Big Oil.

Sanguin battles its way from the artic to the antartic to the jungles, to the deserts, to the cities, until the final battle with cyberdemon Dick Cheney at big Oil headquarters.

Along the way Sanguin gains power-ups that help him along in its journey.

ECO-calibur the magic cleansing sword
Yellow Haz-mat Booties of mercury for mad/insane speed
Enron teflon armor plate of immunity
gaunlets of Nadir

The final level at Big Oil HQ... all the oil pipelines in the world going into a giant beating heart... Sanguin is REALLY small in this pic.

I really like the idea of an angry penguin going ballistic. The character model is looking good. I'm looking forward to seeing some texturing.

Me too! that usually takes even longer to do than the model itself. I gotta get some better tools for that than the native lightwave ones.

Thanks! Digital Ninja and Massoud!

I finally unwrapped the skin for texturing. Needs a few tweaks on some edges and other places but I think its mostly working okay.

The picture is linked to one used for the CGchallenge itself, so as I change the cgchallenge image, the link here loads whatever is the current image. The big advantage to this is that the cgchallenge image can be as large as 150k(?) vs the usual 20k limit here.

With 150 kb available you might wanna upgrade your jpg compression. The compression you use right now doesn't do your model justice.

I think a lot of people are missing the point of the contest. A cinematic game icon is someone who stands out and is the star of a given game. Usually the character is very identifiable from other characters in the game. Eventhough Lara Croft is a semi-realitistic character, you don't confuse her with the enemies onscreen. It is also not unusual for such characters to be simple looking. "Kirby" "Mario" "Link" "Crash" "Sonic"

What I am getting at is that what I went for is what I thought was a realistic example of what a game icon character would be like. Catchy name, bright color, unique appearance, personality, themed storyline.

I am having trouble understanding your messages. If I am guessing correctly you mean that many of the images are being replaced with new images? If, so. The reason is that the image link is tied to the one on cgchallenge. Whatever is there is whatever uses the link here. I try to delete those images to one for each page.

If you don't like it just don't vote for it and stop trolling his thread.

BTW : Excellent work zenzmurfy, I think he has a lot of character and personnality.

I think personally what you're saying either way comes across as rude Massoud!

It's ashame, I thought these forums were a way of helping artists better there skills, not a place to put people down.

He's asked for your opinions on stuff, and you've just come across as arrogant!

Thank you very much! Penguins are great stoic characters. Just look how cool the penguin was in "The Wrong Trousers".

You may be right, but I doubt it matters as much as you think. Seems like people are voting for people they already know and leaving a ZERO vote for everyone else. I am wondering if ppl are bothering to look at all the entries to begin with.

I think a lot of people do not understand the contest topic. I looked at the challenge as making a real game with a starring character that people can instantly recognize. It usually means your character has to be simplified and cartoony. It has to be memorable somehow. It seems like people are forgetting that its not JUST a modeling contest, but a conceptual design contest too.

1) Penguin named Sanguin(Sanguine means blood and it rhymes with penguin)

2) penguin is HUGE and red(not normal coloing)

3)Penguin is super violent.

4) Guns guns guns!

I think it might be beyond his command of english to do it.
Beyond that, good criticism is hard to make to begin with. It helps a lot if the person is knowledgable about the subject matter. On unfamiliar topics, if the person oneself doesn't understand his/her own feelings/thoughts on a matter, its very difficult to verbalize it.

Thanks! I hope I can participate in more challenges too. Sometimes the topic is something I can't get into or often, I do not have time.

My icon is from my previous CG challenge
