Very nice! I like the yellow-rusty tone to the whole thing. Really sets the mood. My only "gripes" if you will are:

1. The black around his mouth... it looks like a bomb went off there or something, some kinda firecracker residue. Is this intentional?

2. A shot from another angle! It's very hard to make out his lower half and see exactly what he's doing, if he's falling or trying to lift those barbels?

Overall great piece, and the mood is great.

Looks super great as always. :thumbsup:

crits:
I don´t like how it gets cut on the sides.
A diffrent pose. Maybe :shrug: .

Change the thread name to character: Gladiator.
It´s the rules.
Anyways.

Nice.

heheh OOoooOOps thx for the tip Bigbad.. forgot to name the thread corectly ;)
Grubwyrm , yes the paint around the mouth is intentionnal, to give it a tribal look... but i'll maybe work alittle more on this detail if too many guys mention it
As for the pose, I wanted this "unbalanced feeling" from that, you can imagine whatever you want..

I really like this guy, great work Pascal, again :)
But I agree about the cropping, I don't think this image does nearly enough justice to this character, I hope to see more :thumbsup:

It's a great model with great lighting and from what I can see great textures, but the composition is not up to your usual standars :(

I'm sorry, but it's not really all it can be in my opinion...

Probably due to the cropping and the really confusing posture (which is intentional, but still)

I saw you started a thread.. and went like :eek:

Then I saw the image and went like :hmm:

Nah.. just kidding ;) .. I love it!

As for the mouth area.. I see where the problem comes from. The make up doesn't set it apart enough. It looks like it's just another shadow / rusty area. Maybe if you made it and a slightly different colour or maybe with a sharper border?

I really like the composition though.. I don't really understand where his feets are and if his lieing on the ground or standing in front of a wall.. but I think that makes the image just more interesting.

overall is a great great piece. just some little thing about the combosition.

From the angle we see here, the from arm, body, back arm are very flat. can't really tell which is which unless you follow his chest. I think part of the problemt is that they have the same brightness. aspecially the back arm . i would make it darker on the inner side to form a contrast between it.

but other than that... like, the model, the texture, idea, feeling are greatly done:thumbsup:

Good point Hap, I'll work on that :arteest:

i knew before i even opened the thread from the front page that it was yours. you have a very unique style.
as usual top notch stuff. like mensioned before, the composition is a bit lacking

Hmmm... Yes, I see your point, but you may (IMHO) want to define the edges of the tatoo more then and perhaps add a few more? It's a great idea, but it still look "burnt" or charred". Tattoos for the most part have very defining line, especially tribal tatoos. To get the point across, maybe you could add more tattoos to the arms or legs (which aren't that visible so maybe not). Maybe one more on his forehead?

Still great though

Fantastic ambiance.Love the look,feel,style.:thumbsup:

To me it's like a beautiful riddle or puzzle..................I am trying to understand the creation.......................but perhaps it's best to leave it a mystery?;)

I would love to see another angle if possible,but perhaps then the mystic feel would be lost. Is he a racer in a future World. Is he a..................well whatever he is either way I think it's a wonderful piece of work.A beautiful looking piece of art,and that's the bottomline. :beer:

Hey nice work!
I am gonna have to agree with some of the others though, the pose dosen't really show off the awsome modeling and is a bit confusing (sorry). I also think the face paint might work better if it didnt fade away so smoothly (like he has been eating fireworks) but had a more sharp edge and a bit of depth like paint? Oh and one last thing maybe his eyes could be another colour? maybee shiny dark grey or somthing, they look like he forgot to close them when he was being painted yellow. Hope thats not to harsh.
I still like him!
Very ABC Warriors!

08-21-2003, 06:02 AM
didn't Dale Williams do that too?

[joking]

all kidding aside, another great work pascal.

the only crits I have, in my opinion, are :

- the pose seems like it is halfway there...with his arms tight against his body you really, from this angle, are not getting the sense of power that I feel you can exploit from this character

- some assymetry in the face would be an added bonus

cool stuff! :beer:

08-21-2003, 06:34 AM
hey, haven't seen u around for quite a long time.
well, I love the composition actually. It's a visionary try on this piece. U seem to based his line of action on an inverted "P". if we take away to weapon, it'll look like a letter "S". But you slightly blurred the dreadlocks/hair, so it seems like "Y" too tho. somehow, it seems a little unbalance. might be because that we can't really see how he pose it's left leg. Maybe pulling his left leg to the back might can help balance up it's line of action.
no matter how you design this pose, it still look fabulous. But ther only thing which bothers me is the dark tone above his mouth. maybe u should get some references on this one.
did u do that just to blurred our eye to let us decide where's the focus is?
but anyway, this is a really good piece.
:thumbsup:

MadS
08-21-2003, 06:38 AM
I always love the lighting of your models. Do you do post work in photoshop? Like Overlay to get that rich, translucent look? Very cool.

I have to agree with most of what has been said already. The composition is confusing to the eye. I did not understand what he was doing without staring at it for a while. But maybe that's your intent. To force us to study the details much deeper.

It does seem a tad cramped. And I am not understanding the motion blur on the tentacles. If this blur is from a sudden 'jerk' to lift the barbell, then wouldn't his head and other parts have some motion blur too?

Anyway, It's still cool to look at. :thumbsup:

falling, evading an attack..... i cant tell, the pose makes me think i like it :scream: -------- but like many already said cant see much of the character (too bad he looks soo cool too). I like the details and color so beautiful :beer:

08-21-2003, 07:11 AM

Wo that is a great charcter (as usual) I personally like the mouth area even if it does look a little burnt. As for the pose I think it is great but I just think we need to be able to see some of his legs because right now his body action line flows directly into the barrel weight thingies making it hard to look at the piece without feeling like it is incomplete If you don't want to chage the pose you might be able get away with just boosting the light on the weight thinies so they are seperated and esily identifiable as what they are. I love the overall composition especially the head and action of the hair. Also the cropping isn't that bad it might be good to make it longer so you can possibly get a little bit of the legs in their, that is if they are bellow the weights.

Anyway I have always been a fan of you modeling and attention to compostion as well as color and of course intriguing charcter design.

I would love a bigger res and a wire could be intersting to see.

Hi! I've wondered do you do any scretches before working in 3d? On what software do you work. You've always been kind of guru to me. Your style is great. I wish to be on your level.
Bye!:thumbsup:

Blackarts
08-21-2003, 09:14 AM
I personally really like the color around the mouth, it's an unexpected little touch that adds some personality to the character. Very cool.

The top left quarter of the picture is brilliant, but the other parts of the image tend to be a bit ambigous I think...as was metioned above, a little more color variation would help the pose stand out.

Still, it's hard to find fault with artwork like this that just ooooooozes style.

cheers

Nice pic, really. The composition doesn't bother me but I think that the lightning is not as good as on your other pieces of art. all the luminosity is stuck in the upper part (after desaturate and contrast tweaking in Photoshop, it's really visible). Maybe it's just a question of reflection, I don't know :shrug:

Well, it's just a detail, it's impressive and really nice looking, definitly an illustation, not a 3D pic ! :buttrock:

Brilliant work as usual, what can be done in some circumstances except "I like what i see" ?

The unbalanced pose adds dynamicity and tension to the whole scene (as the subject requests), while the cropping and the light blur in some areas makes it more undefined, mystic , so interesting.

The gladiator concept works well, it`s massive and evil without being raw, although the most fascinating and original part is his weapon (?), improbable, huge, uncomfortable and useless , but still a terribly visual interesting object ;)

The color scheme works well too, although i consider it just a bit monochromatic,especially on the gladiator body. Maybe some (a few) localized red or white spots ,decals, rust signs or whatever on it would fit well to break the domain of ocra-yellow , just to add more interest and variation.
Maybe it would be also interesting trying to change the skin color of the face toward more pale tones.

Except the above bullshits i wrote :cool: the picture is artistic, illustrative and well...this is the kind of cg stuff i like more.

Take care

Ale

I actually like the dark areas around the mouth just the way it is. It did, however, take some effort to make out his pose.

Great stuff, hope to see more soon. :thumbsup:

Impressive Pascal, the image rocks!
I like the lightning blur and the side angle, because it's your style.

The only thing that bothers me is that the head doens't have much personality,, can you make a better emotion expression?

And how did you rendered the image? because I read that you had problems with Finalrender St-1,,, so what is it?

As always, impressing. There are some things that maybe could be changed though. Just friendly "critique"

-The eyes could maybe have a color/ be brighter
-The ring-thing on the shoulder could be more integrated into the shoulder-protection.
-Maybe the tentacles are a litle too stiff?


Nice.:love:
I like the head, don't change the head ;)

Btw, have you ever made a CG book? Or partitipated in a French CG book? I seem to remember that.

I like yellow color palette, I always like if there's one dominant color. But some slight color variation on textures would add a bit IMO. And maybe make skin tone bit different than the armour tone. Also, more detailed eyes (irises, pupils) would make him more alive, now he resembles 'action figure' a bit.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

the rendering...

reminds me of a certain caribou from Ubi Montreal...

But I must admit I don't understand the pose and the guy...took me 1 minut to understand that we could see his arms...(? ok ok 20 sec)

No Pascal don't bite me !!!!! :blush:

08-21-2003, 02:08 PM
I was looking at it again...Just the grace of the pose is almost a bit feminine and yet it suits the character. Very candid shot you created.

(thx MFTituS,Eklettica, azazel and Blackarts always cool to have comments from you buddy )
make the legs a little more visible ( yes he as legs Karlstok heheh )

Nice look. I especially like the mono look. Are you using a plugin to create the dirty look, or are you actually creating it in the texture?

BoydLake
08-21-2003, 07:48 PM
Not doubt a top of the line model. I think the pose could read a bit better. The shape of his weapon hides much of the lower figure, and the right arm loses itself in the torso. I think some adjustments of lighting could help that and maybe some more light/dark play in the textures on overlapping pieces could help too. This image also has a much more washed-out appearence than I see in your other work. I agree the dark paint on his face tends to isolate the jaw, making that almost look like a seperate piece. Certainly a nice job though. Again, wonderful modeling especially in the natural organic parts.

Modelling and lighting and design and...all excellent.

Have you got any other poses??

Choiceness, and well done:) :thumbsup:

bleep
08-22-2003, 03:35 AM
well i like the character design but that's it. don't take it wrong i like the pic but that's about it I "just like it".

i'd like to be surprise for the next pic, use COLORS, and textures diversity that you kinda lost since a lill while, do something different test new things perhaps...

also i'd love to see more work on your lighting, somehow it feels like you just push GI renderer button =( (and work a bit on it in PS i know ;)

And perhaps more backround elements, rather than just a plane and a PS shadow, to give modre depth, even just suggested elements hidden in the dark or more painted.

sorry if i am picky but comming from a such talented artist, i would expect to be amazed, not only by modeling.

Actually Bleep, I liked your critics ;) And the fun thing is that I plan to work more on background composition in my next illustration(s?) than on the character itself... stay tuned ;)

Hey Pascal, nice work, I like your work to much!!

How process did you use to model and render this?
Whats software?
How you light, GI, Light Tracer, Vray, Brazil, FR.... Whats?

Realy nice work! :thumbsup:

08-22-2003, 09:40 PM
R.Quinn: I model, then rigg to pose them...
honraegloria: 3dsmax for modelling texturing and all, Vray for the rendering, PS for touch up and polishing :arteest:

VERY INSPIRING!!!!
I love it!!!!
I'm glad there are others using max for highpoly stuff!!!
would it be possible to show a close up (wireframe)of the face?
And how in the world are you getting all of those holes and cutouts in your geometry? and still have such a clean mesh? when I have too many insets or countersinks, my mesh starts to get nasty.
Great stuff!

08-22-2003, 10:54 PM
use a relax modifier on soft selected vertexes ;) it helps!

Sheesh you're back again? Doesn't Ubisoft need you somewhere :p heh very good work here as usual Pascal, tho I agree with Urg it's not quite up there with your others, but it's different enough in it's own way to stand on its own. Would've love to see more varying textures but it's good as is. Excellent model btw.

You made it, gave me back my long time missing inspiration and motivation to do 3d, thanks! :beer:
Model, textures, pose: superb
Please do something with his eyes, like silverish shining or something... I think the eyes need some contrast to the rest of the face
Well anyway, excellent work as always!

uh, what a ton of congratulation posts, so shortly...
I think it's not about technique, there are a lot of people that can model and texture scenes as you, but only you could inspire on it that dream-like style, and make every scene unique, congratulations. :)

thx! actually, i have always considered myself as a more artistic infographist than technical one... I don't have the patience to create top quality models, I reuse my stuff a lot, and always hide the parts I dont like...
When i work on my personnal creations, I think more about the whole pictures than details... that explains why I dont make that much tutorials I guess..
thx for the Award Lil ;)
I am always a bit surprised when I hhear people talking about the level of qualityin my old picts.. if you look carefully, you'll see that this one is a step further than the other ones.. I think it is more about getting familiar with a new pict.. after a while, they become "classic"and people forget about crappy details ;)

You are simply unique, Pascal!

Franz Aber

Le fait est qu'il m'est difficile de ne pas aimer tes images Pascal. La volonté artistique qui s'en dégage est évidente et j'avoue qu'en ce qui me concerne j'adore, peu importe les défauts que je peux y voir ça et là (ceci dit humblement étant donné mon niveau de débutant en 3d). Qui plus est il se dégage aussi de tes (trop peu nombreuses) réalisations un univers personnel assez attirant et unique (le mot revient beaucoup dans les posts et c'est mérité).

J'aurais une requête néanmoins, ou une doléance : comme j'apprends beaucoup en modélisation en étudiant tous les filaires que chacun veut bien laisser dans ce forum, je trouve dommage de ne pas pouvoir décortiquer les tiens plus à fond, surtout les versions avant meshsmooth (notamment qu'est-ce que je ne donnerais pas pour ton wolverine)...

après tout si je suis tombé dans le bain de la 3d c'est un peu ta faute mince ;)

enfin voilà il faudrait que je songe à faire une petite critique sur la composition de ta dernière image mais j'ai pas le courage là maintenant, surtout après avoir dit que j'adorais ton travail

enfin...

i think reading the entire topic should be standard in posting. he posted the wire a few pages before this one.

excellent piece

must have missed that soulstorm...... a simple, "It's on page 7" would suffice, but I guess you need the extra little nugget to feel adequate. Whatever gets you through the day, board kiddie.

Even 5 Stars are not enough for Pascal's artworks, he doesn't need any star from anybody, you know, he's already a Star in CG sky :D

Hey Pascal,

Since the image has a bad camera angle, i cant really comment on this piece. It would be better if you had rendered another angle for us to see because like this, it looks terrible. It looks more like an amature work instead of a professional one. The only thing you can make out is his head, the legs and bottom half of his body has gone with that terrible camera angle you chose.

Hope you are not angry, it is just a crit. Anyways, change the pose and show us a wire of this model.

Its a terrible waste to leave it like this...

Cheers

This guy must be crazy :surprised .. hehe

btw.. look through this thread.. he´d already posted some wireframes.. and they´re really wicked :eek:

eheh that's ok grugi, everybody is free to have an opinion :rolleyes:
I am not crazy about picts thats shows the characters too much, i rather like being a little more egnimatic, and let people imagine what's hidden... just a question of taste ;)

Amazing work !! great model and textures !

The only little thing that i personally dont like, is the green touch of the picture. So i remixed it a bit in PS7 i hope you dont mind - its just that i love to play around with great stuff :)

@Goetterfunke: Uhh.... no, I see what you wanted to do but that´s just too bright and has nothing of the atmosphere of the original.. and it erases some of the details.

Well, it´s a different version and you can ALWAY make a picture better by working on it in photoshop, but I think that wasn´t pascal´s intention to make his eyes glow etc.

That´s just my opinion of course :)

More like a LOT burned out. It's so bad that it flattens everything. I much prefer your version.

goetterfunke
08-27-2003, 05:54 PM
i love burned out stuff :)
i didnt want to make it better, just a personal interpretation
i also do that with paintings of picasso just for fun - he would jump out of his own grave if he saw them hehe
anyways back to topic, please comment pasacls work not my little "experiment"

Good work as always from Pascal.
How is Ubisoft?:) Any chance to post works your doing there?

ilasolomon
08-28-2003, 12:27 AM
to goetterfunke: green? you have to adjust your monitor or get a new one! there is no green tone in the original picture, it's yellow and some orange, if you don't believe check with photoshop color picker! :) I think there is nothing wrong with Pascal's version too. but you are free to play with that of course.

08-28-2003, 08:42 AM
very good model and design to, but the lightning is not condign, it do not highlight the shape, so it look a little "flat"...

I like your Work, keep it up!

Excellent,love the look and feel.Sorry if it's been asked before but is that one texture.Any other tricks done to get that look? V-ray instead of Brazil huh?is it because of the speed? Thanks for any answers,nice work.:thumbsup: :beer:

Vray is maybe a bit less photorealistic than brazil but faster and more friendly user ;)
