*edit : updates below (finished ! > page 2)*

hy all, my last wip is not yet finished but... :)

I've decided to change style for a little time ;)

here's my concept :

hope u like it ;)

Hahaha model that...
I read the title of the thread as "cool" mecha.
But the image made me laugh and I think it looks like it'd be fun to model.

12 December 2003, 01:32 PM
hehe thx for support NeoGSR, i'll start the mod monday i think (i'll draw the MDS this w-e ;))


12 December 2003, 07:17 PM
ok, here's the modeling :

C&C are welcome as usual :D

Cya for next post ;)

12 December 2003, 07:49 PM
cool concept and really nice modeling so far. Let's see the texturing!


12 December 2003, 07:53 PM
thx for feedback Akildee next step is rigging, the texturing will come soon :D

12 December 2003, 09:51 PM
Looking good so far... definately cant wait to see the texturing.

One suggestion, personally I would have a mask hanging off to the side of his head. Working without in a coal mine is a bad idea... but if this is going cartoony, maybe a cigar...

what is the character's personality anyway?

12 December 2003, 11:29 PM
NeoSGR : hehe good idea, but he doesn't work in a Coal mine. The coal behind is only the combustible that he need to move :)

In fact i like the automate and the old machinery style.

ok here's the rigging tests :

and i'm just started the UV's :

C U for the next post (probably texturing ;))

Hey bro, good job. Love the concept/idea! Do you have any animations posted?

12 December 2003, 02:45 AM
hey bar2sek, thx for feedback :)

A animation test will rlzed when the texturing will be done.

But this model is originally for Quake 3.

Cya :)

12 December 2003, 07:14 AM
ok little update :

the UV's are almost done too :D

i'll begin the texturing tomorrow ;)


12 December 2003, 11:45 AM
Can you post the flat of the UV unwrapping?

12 December 2003, 06:32 PM
More detail on the boots, less on the chest :).

01 January 2004, 03:27 PM
first of all, thx guys fir all feedbacks :D

here's a update : i've just start the texturing :

needless to say that's still WIP ;)

C&C are welcome as usual !

This is cool. I like the coal texture, although it looks a bit like lava or magma.

The model is great too. cant wait for more updates.

01 January 2004, 01:40 AM
ok, here's a quick update :


01 January 2004, 07:15 PM
another quick update :

01 January 2004, 10:15 PM
no C and/or C?... :( ok.

Another update :

Looking very good! Just a few things:

Maybe add a belt or some side stitching to the pants for more detail.

Definitely bring down the saturation of the boots. They are a bit distracting.

Post the texture so we can see what's going on as well!


01 January 2004, 06:57 PM
Akildee : thx for critikz :)

About the belt, if u look at the artwork, u'll see that he has a big belt (near pelvis).
About the saturation on the boots, thx a lot, u're right. It's fixed now :)

Ok, the texturing is almost finished now (95%) :

C&C before .pk3 rlz is more than welcome ;)

Hope u like it ! It was a really good training for me ;)

01 January 2004, 03:26 PM
ok the model is now finshed, it was a really good training for me (first LP model)

the .pk3 will be rlzed soon ;)

01 January 2004, 04:19 PM
you maybe could have used a little bit more of the texture space, but this is a very, very small point. Great stuff man for sure! Detail artistry and design!


01 January 2004, 04:49 PM
Akildee : thx for this posifive comment man !

I know (now) that the texture sheet (and the placement of the different UV parts) wasn't really optimal (too big difference between some UV parts :/ e.g. Chest VS boots yeah.). I must say that it was my really first complete low ploy character. I've learn a lot during the creation. I will pay attention to this in the furure :).

Anyway, thx for ur C&C ;)

this is awesome :) make a 4000 poly ver. for ut2003 :)

03 March 2004, 03:02 PM
Nice job, this turned out really great. Good use of polys as well.
One minor thing: The glasses are really small. They dont stand out as glasses, perhaps they could be a tiny bit bigger.

03 March 2004, 05:01 PM
wow!! that is amazing!!! Great style you have there! The character is top notch, both modeling and texturing! really good job :)

can you please possible tell me how you unwrapped the face? what's your secret? i have been longing to know for a while now... how do you unwrap the face like that?

03 March 2004, 06:27 PM
Good show

Nice poly layout
