View Full Version : Character : Cyper-punk Pirate

01 January 2004, 11:28 PM
Hy all, here my new WIP :

Concept :

Modelisation WIP :

hope u like it :) More updates are coming soon !

01 January 2004, 12:24 AM
it's very piratey, but not very cyber or punk.

01 January 2004, 01:24 AM
I agree. Definately very nerdy, but i don't see the cyber punk very strongly

maybe he should be wearing a linux t-shirt or something or have some darker colors in the costume atleast. I really like the character in the face though.

It's a good character no matter what. but if you're trying to make cyber punk keep going.

01 January 2004, 01:32 AM
You really like little glasses dont yah Guntharf


01 January 2004, 07:18 AM
ok, all of u are agree that the title is a little false, it's more "Mad Max pirate" or "Waterworld pirate" than "cyber punk".

My faute :(

BTW, thx for the critz.

01 January 2004, 07:23 AM
actually he's more "disney pirate"

good model though, my own issue is with the mouth though, it looks more like a point than a mouth.

01 January 2004, 07:30 AM
Ferg : maybe a little "treasure planet" inspiration but not wanted. :)

About the mouth, on the artwork it's clearly a little dot. But on the model (some close-up will help) it's a real "little" mouth. I'll post updates soon with correct close-up on the different parts that we can't really see.

Thx for comment ^^

01 January 2004, 10:53 PM
small update :

Modeling is finished (or almost).

head close-up :

Let's go to UV's ! :)

01 January 2004, 12:30 AM
the body is good and has nice asymetrical touches, but i'd work on the head a little more before uv-ing. maybe make the hat shifted a tiny bit to one side. and definately make the ties in the back uneven.

01 January 2004, 07:15 AM
h2olt : thx for the comment :) My prob is that the hat has been modeled from extrudes of the head itselt. So, to move it a little, it will be difficult. Other point is the texture sheet. To preserve a maximum of place on the texture (because the body is very asymetrical and take a lot of place), i've decided to keep the face and some other elements (like scarf, hand, etc) symetrical. Your idea is much better off course but i'll see if i can do it ;)

anyway, thx a lot pfor reply and i'll keep in ming your critz :) I'll change ties in the back for sure ;)

01 January 2004, 04:36 PM
What's up with the mini glasses?

01 January 2004, 12:04 PM
ok here's a small update : (UV done)

and the map :

I think i'll use a 512*512 for the head and one 1024*1024 for the body.


02 February 2004, 07:12 PM
Ok quick update here : A quick animation test, i think the rigging is almost done, i'll start texturing his w-e :)

Here, the run cycle : (i've modified a original UT2K3 .bip to match with my model ).

Let's go for texturing ! :D

02 February 2004, 07:03 AM
Hmm, the head looks a bit stiff in the side view of the run cycle? Maybe it needs to nod forward a bit each time the front foot hits the ground or something?

Anyway, nice work.

02 February 2004, 09:21 AM
this is a great work.
As for the run cycle, I think is should really show some ackward distribution of weight. Seeing as he's got a pegleg it would look cool to see him kinda hobbling. Right now he is running as if he had two perfectly working feet. I'm sure you plan on adding that as your attention to detail so far has been thought out well.

can't wait to see the finish results!

02 February 2004, 06:15 AM
Hi, I'm a newbie here, I'm just wondering if you guys think this is any good.

02 February 2004, 10:21 PM
NuklearPanda : Not bad :) I'm happy that my work enable u to work too :) Just try to smooth a little your drawing. Maybe use the gossian blur tool? Anyway, good start :) *train train train* ;)

at last... :D i've just start the texturing : Here's a WIP of the head.

and the texture sheet :

cya ;)

Your modell looking really cool and coming nice along
your concept art i really like it, but a little Warning your
UV mapping is realy good but for UT 2003 too good if
your UVs to close together on the Texure you get black
lines on your model in game or Poly Holes made the same
shit my self stupid Engine just an little warning.

02 February 2004, 11:13 PM
thx for the comment and the tips dude !! i'll take care of this for my futur character;)

thx again.

02 February 2004, 06:50 PM
another quick update :

the face will be "done" tomorrow.

02 February 2004, 07:15 PM
I love the warm colors you used to paint the face. Nice color scheme. Feels very italian or something! Good job!


02 February 2004, 11:26 PM

Just wanted to say that its all looking very nice, and quite entertaining to watch your character come to life. I cant help that this character would fit into an ape escape game or something (?). Anyhoo, looking nice, and the only thing I think could need a little tweaking is the contrast in the skin. It's very nice at the moment, perhaps a little too contrasty though? Maybe tone it down just a....and i mean just a small teaspoon serving of toner downer :P



02 February 2004, 03:20 AM
here's the day's update :

I'll paint the interior mouth and i'll start the body monday i think

Close-up's :

03 March 2004, 06:56 PM
ok, fast update after a Holiday Week ;)

i've just start the body :

*removed* (better picture bellow)

03 March 2004, 07:12 PM
there is somthng muddy about the color. Seem like it needs to pop out. Try adding a smidge a contrast and a touch of saturation.

03 March 2004, 04:36 PM
thx for advice, it will be done ;)

edit : Update :

*image removed* (see below)

03 March 2004, 10:43 PM
Looks pretty cool. I'd agree with the muddyness comment, but not too bad.

03 March 2004, 02:39 AM
here a small update again :

(Contrast has been changed)

03 March 2004, 01:12 PM
little update :

03 March 2004, 05:10 PM
DAMN you`ve gotten way better since your last model and texture. this model and texture is gold. id ditch the small glasses though

03 March 2004, 05:31 PM
Guntharf, I have to admit I was not too interested when you posted your conceptual drawing but you have totally won me over with your work. He is looking KICKASS!

I can see him inhabiting a back alley on good ol Monkey's Island. Cant wait to see the finished model.

03 March 2004, 05:42 PM
thx a lot for support Konstruct, i'm really happy to see that my work is on a good way :)

BigRedDogg, i really appreciate your comment man, it's the best compliment that someone can give me :)

thx a lot again ;)

03 March 2004, 12:13 AM
juste a quick update (omg it was my first arms > soooo hard ! :/ )

03 March 2004, 04:31 AM
looks great man. good job!

03 March 2004, 10:08 PM
ok here's the final update, don't know if the character will be change alot after this but your last advices are off course more than welcome.

some close-up :


03 March 2004, 10:32 PM
make shadows in hands darker.

03 March 2004, 10:45 PM
lol what a positive comment... Sorry but the hands is good for me.

03 March 2004, 11:34 PM
How i said before i really like your model nothing to
crit from my side and for the shadows how YerEvilTwin
said thats not nesasery for the UT2003 Engine because
the Engine do the most shading.

Greetz Fox Mc Cloud

03 March 2004, 02:35 PM
thx for support/reply Fox Mc Cloud :) And u've absolutly right about the engine ;)

here's the texture sheets :

03 March 2004, 01:01 AM
if you look at the original concept, u can see some bombs and wings :) If u're wondering about that, here's your answer :D

The flying Bomb :


But take care of these bombs, they don't fly during a long time :D

cya :D

03 March 2004, 01:32 AM
Wohhhhhhhhh nice :) do you think he could borrow me
one of these ? i got some really anoying neighbour and
it would be really fun to give him that for lunch :D :D ^^

Greetz Fox Mc Cloud

03 March 2004, 04:55 AM
now that he's nearing completion he's tuning out mighty nice. The beard stuble is hard to see and the dark tone seems to over power the lower face. Try increasing the stuble and toneing down the over all shade.

Bomd: no crit, looks fine

Edit: Sideburns!

03 March 2004, 06:15 PM
hey !
sweet !
really great textures and model idea !

04 April 2004, 11:00 AM
yeahhh - very nice textures !!! and model too.

04 April 2004, 04:34 PM

Im new on thoose boards and thats an incredibly nice style you got, i looks how you put shadows and so to learn, thanks for that ;) keep the neat stuff up, iu have no crits at all.
