View Full Version : Need a 2D brainiac

Soeren Nielsen
06 June 2002, 04:13 AM
you ever wind up with a complete blackout on where to go with your characters, I bet you do, and then you know how it feels.

Well I'm there right now, I started on a 3d model without anything particular in mind because I was just testing out some techniques, but then I decided to go all the way with it but now Im stuck

This is where I am

sorry its not 2d ;)

I dont have my wacom at home, and I dont own a scanner, so I dont have any concept drawings for it.. thats where you guys come up, if you could give me somekind of idea for the legs, and well whatever ideas you come up with I would be as happy as this smiley --> :bounce: <- sure looks happy..

anyways, I guess you are all hard working 2daholics, so you prolly wont have time for anything, but ideas are welcome too.

And now I can only wait untill I get my wacom back, cause Im stuck.

06 June 2002, 06:04 AM
Soeren Nielsen, if you want I can try to help you but what kind of character do you want? Big guy? Monster? Androïd?...

-art7sayan- :wavey:

06 June 2002, 11:14 AM
Hey I want to help!!!
But you'll have give some clues about who or what you think of creature he is...!

...I'll just go and try:wip:

Soeren Nielsen
06 June 2002, 01:07 PM
Glad to see some eager minds :D

I would like a midieval design, a huge weapon or something, I do want to make his face a little more humanlike. Big plates of armor here and there. Other than that everything is up to you. I will be going all the way with animating this guy, so credit will be given to you guys :)

Thanks in advance

06 June 2002, 02:49 PM
Just a quick sketch to take the flavour of what I will do! Soeren Nielsen, what do you think about this kind of armor? If it's good for you I will continue on this one!

06 June 2002, 02:50 PM

Soeren Nielsen
06 June 2002, 05:01 PM
I dig it! :D
really sweet man, cant wait to see the final stuff

Soeren Nielsen
06 June 2002, 05:03 PM
It doesnt matter that the scale isnt exactly the same, Ill just scale mine a bit down, or find somewhere in between

07 July 2002, 02:50 PM
So... this is the basic shape of your futur armor.

Here is the front view:

07 July 2002, 02:51 PM

07 July 2002, 02:53 PM
Soeren Nielsen, if you need something else, just call me!

I will add some color and perspective view later , when you will start to make it! :beer:

Good luck and I hope you'll like it!

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 03:11 PM
Its very cool, I like it.. I will start working on it tonight, so Ill probably have something to show you tomorrow. And thanks alot I appreciate it

07 July 2002, 03:16 PM

07 July 2002, 03:36 PM
Nicely done Artsayan~! :):thumbsup: this defitenetely suitable for doin in 3d~ :applause:

07 July 2002, 04:42 PM
Thank you Ken! :beer:

07 July 2002, 10:27 PM
well, i have an idea. wanna see it? i ask because art7sayan has done a real good job and i don't want to start skteching if your decision is already made.

looks good so far!

07 July 2002, 10:31 PM
Wow, art7sayan, that's a really great job you did here :thumbsup:
I can't wait to see Soeren's modeling and texturing.


Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 10:40 PM
Sad sure let me see it, if I like it, maybe Ill do both :)

07 July 2002, 10:43 PM
Oh if that's the way you want it...
It's a crappy sketch, but just for the idea:

07 July 2002, 10:53 PM
hey man, that was what i was thinking of. that's so weird, it never happend ever before.

07 July 2002, 11:03 PM

jeroentje :beer:

07 July 2002, 03:41 PM

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:07 PM
I just finished the base model of him so now Im starting on the armor.
stay tuned later tonight for updates on the armor.. I hope you like the body on this guy :)

07 July 2002, 02:27 AM
Soeren, it's a very great guy!!! GO GO GO man!!!! :buttrock:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 02:32 AM
its pretty late here, but Im still working on him, Ill post an update shortly

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 03:05 AM
Ok here goes, this is how far I am on the model, its been really fun so far, and I bet it will be as much fun to make the rest :)

Uh btw I named him fred :bounce:

07 July 2002, 04:01 AM
:applause: :applause: :applause:

Hey, it's so good, just like what was drawing, respect!!!! :bowdown: :thumbsup:

07 July 2002, 02:30 PM
teach me, master! this is an incredible work and i wonder how long you have been cg-artist for now. can i see a wireframe of the shield? such a movement from the first post to today.


Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 02:35 PM
Let me just finish the rest of the armor then Ill show you a wireframe.. I started out working in 3dsmax about 5 years ago.. didnt really work much, just a couple of times a month.. 1½ year ago I got Lightwave, bought Dan Ablans Inside lightwave 6 and I work alot with Lightwave every day allmost :cool:

Ill post a wireframe later today :)

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 01:37 AM
ok once again its very early in the morning here, and Im about to go to bed, so a final update, didnt get much work done today I'm afraid, some stuff came in the way.

and a wireframe

art7sayan, you think you could draw a more detailed sketch of the foot, and if you feel up to it, his face :)

The boots arent done, I'm just too tired to go on right now

07 July 2002, 12:17 PM
Ok Soeren, I will do it for you! :buttrock: The boots, his face...and his huge weapon!

BTW, do you want an Helmet? (and don't forget to do his cape!!)


Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 12:42 PM
hmmm I actually dont know about a helmet. Im not sure if it will fit his kinda tough guy look, did you have something in mind ?

I havent forgot about the cape :)

Cant wait to see the new pictures you make! :bounce:
Thanks alot again

07 July 2002, 12:55 PM
Ok, I'm a lil' bit busy today but tomorrow you will get what you want! :thumbsup:

See you Soeren! :wavey:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 01:11 PM
Sounds cool :)

07 July 2002, 03:20 AM
So this is your boots ...

07 July 2002, 03:23 AM are some faces, but don't care about the design, it's just some concept. If one of those faces is good for you I will work more on it! :beer:


07 July 2002, 03:26 AM
Soeren, this blade was made for a character of mine (some guys here will recognize it lol) ...I think that it will be a good weapon for this big guy!! :thumbsup:

07 July 2002, 03:27 AM
I hope you'll like it!!!

See you Soeren! :wavey:

07 July 2002, 03:28 AM
Fred rocks:airguitar Great teamwork, wow.

07 July 2002, 03:38 AM
Thank you Sleepless!!! :wavey:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:06 AM
They are very good art7sayan, as allways :) I like the middle face you made, I think it fits the large bulky body best. I love the weapon, I will definately make it. Actually it was just what I had in mind, I have been doing some testing whit the rigging of the skeleton for the model, still needs some tweaking, but now I will finish the model, and start on the texturing, and then Ill do the animating. Well maybe Ill do some animating first (its fun like hell)

Sleepless I'm glad you like it

07 July 2002, 04:14 AM
Soeren Nielsen--> you 3d guys are an inspiration. The lighting alone always makes me think about different ways to paint. There's something about seeing it in 3d that helps...art7sayan is quite the draftsmen isn't he.

07 July 2002, 04:15 AM

Thx Soeren! Good luck man!

Ok, so do you want that I work more this face?

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:25 AM
yeah it would be cool if you could work more on the face I was talking about, :)

Sleepless, it goes the other way around also, the inspiration for me on this model, comes from art7sayan, I got alot better on my modeling skills on this one, because I model things Im not used to model. And yes art7sayan is quite the draftsman, he really rox :D

07 July 2002, 04:30 AM
Thx man :airguitar lol

Ok, I will start as soon as I can! :thumbsup:

07 July 2002, 12:41 PM
Art7Sayan, you draw really good...are you a professionnal concept artist?

If not, I guess you plan to be! ;)

The 3D is really nice to! Great teamwork guys!

Really impressive how you are able to make an efficient work team using the internet only as communication base!

Too coool!

07 July 2002, 01:09 PM
Thank you very much Paranoy2k, no I'm not a professionnal concept artist but you're right I plan to become something like this! :D For the moment, I'm just a young student in graphism...

I really like the work of Soeren and yes the internet is quite a good communication base to find awesome people!


See you !

07 July 2002, 03:52 PM
:D It's done! Here is his face:

07 July 2002, 03:53 PM

07 July 2002, 03:53 PM
See you! :wavey:

07 July 2002, 05:29 PM
Soeren!! Have you seen it? Is it good for you??? :shrug: :wavey:

Anyway, good luck!

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 05:37 PM
yeah I have seen it and have started working on it at once.. I just removed the old boots, and are now making them, I absolutely LOVE the face, it will fit the body so well! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 05:42 PM

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 06:33 AM
The Time Serpent, thanks for the nice words.
Sorry Im not the one to ask about 2d

A small update before I go to bed, I modeled the face, still needs detail but right now my bed seems very comfy.

cya :wavey:

07 July 2002, 06:59 AM
Awesome, but I want to see him with his weapon :)

07 July 2002, 11:50 AM

YOu two really fixed it, the character looks very cool!
Art7sayan and Soeren you both did a great job, I love to see this thing happening more often. 2D artists helping 3D artists or the other way around should be happening more on this forum!!!!!

Keep it coming!!!:thumbsup:

07 July 2002, 12:19 PM
you're right Sangotten, It should be happening more!!! :buttrock:

Thank you and c u !! :wavey:

07 July 2002, 06:36 PM
:thumbsup: Hehe! I will add some drawing tomorrow too!!
Thanks again everyone!! :beer:

07 July 2002, 08:52 PM
Looks good guys!

I would suggest staying with the pale skin and grey armor look that the wireframe had, as appose to the multi-colored look your full render had.
I notice that more and more characters are getting steel collar/neck braces lately, maybe that's an influence of MGS2, hehe...

07 July 2002, 10:05 PM
Thanks Snake (Hey!!Where is Raiden?? lol :D )

You're right but for the multi-colored render, I guess that it's just the ligthning (isn't it Soeren??) !

And don't forget that MGS is an awesome game (you know it Neil lol) !!! :buttrock:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 10:28 PM
MGS <- whats that ? :)

yeah its just the lighting art7sayan

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:35 AM
Didnt get much done today, a pretty bad headache and this damn heat just made me frustrated at the slightest problem so I just relaxed with some films, sorry to keep you guys who have been following this thread waiting, somedays are just not good for working. :thumbsdow

You guys are incredible ! ,

Art7sayan , your work is inspiring man.

keep it up guys!

07 July 2002, 03:22 AM
Hey Soeren, just wondering... Did you model the face point by point or did you start with a box? Nice job!

07 July 2002, 04:19 AM
Thanks a lot Sheep Factory. :rolleyes:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:34 AM
I started out making the eyeballs, and then building the eyelids and the nose.. then I extended the polys. And woila :)
Im glad you like it, still needs some details, but I have had sooo much to do today, so I didnt get around to do anything.

07 July 2002, 09:21 AM
Hey Soeren

You da man! Really great work. I read this thread and didn't believe my own eyes when your character suddenly came to life.

Great idea showing your wip to these 2D guys .. it really payed off.

art7sayan - you da man too ;) .. great concept-drawings.

Keep it up!

07 July 2002, 11:13 AM
...and again men!

Hey Soeren, we're waintin' for ya now!!!! :bounce:

07 July 2002, 11:16 AM
Great stuff guys! If I´ve got some ideas to your concepts, can I post them also? If not, no problem, but the modell is very inspirative. Great!

07 July 2002, 11:19 AM
Yeah no problem but I don't know what "mister 3D" (lol) will say!
For me, of course u can! :wavey:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:51 PM
Sure you can :)
Sorry for not getting it updated for a couple of days now, I will try to get it updated tonight, I have startet on the blade allready tho :)

07 July 2002, 04:55 PM

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 07:15 AM
ok finally Im back on my computer, my HD just went dead on me, thank god for backups, nothing is lost, except some time. Just wanted you guys to know, that Im not dead, I have just been without a working computer.

07 July 2002, 08:07 AM
Nice to see the teamwork!
Really nice work on both parts, can't wait to see the finished model! Keep it up!

07 July 2002, 09:48 AM

Soeren, I was really busy and so I wasn't able to post anything ...sorry!:rolleyes: I will try to post some pose of Fred!:wavey:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 10:03 AM
hey no problem art7sayan, didnt get much done the last week myself

07 July 2002, 06:23 AM
I am unable to see the images of the 3d model but I wanted to give my word on the 2d sketches.

I have NEVER seen any sketches that have made me as amazed as these few just have. So much so that I created an account just to tell you how very impressed I am.

I wish the images of the 3d model would show up, but they aren't right now. I will check back later.

If you guys are interested, I am hoping to make a medieval type game. I am a programmer and have been working on an engine for a while. A big chunk of free time is just about to hit me upside the head and I have nothing better to do with it than hopefully make a MMORPG. I would be very interested in the help of you great artists.

Drop me a line some time. Again, great work!

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 08:20 AM
my site is down, and therefore the images are down too, dont know whats wrong, I hope they will be up soon again. As for the game you are talking about, I wish I could put time into it, but Im not sure I can.

07 July 2002, 02:06 AM
Yes Soeren, I hope they will be up soon too 'coz I got what you are lookin' for! Here is quick sketch of Fred without his armor but some clothes. If it's good to you, I will work on it more ;)

Here is just the upper part, I will work on his legs later too .

C U Soeren!


Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 04:22 AM
This should be very fun to work with, and also alot easier to animate. its 6:20 in the morning here, and I have decided to work on it most of the day. update in a couple of hours. :)

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 08:12 AM
ok I remodeled most of the body and the head, it looks alot better now, and more like the reference art7sayan drew.

heres a couple of screenshots.

tell me if you want some closeups.. for now.. back to work :D


07 July 2002, 08:15 AM
Soeren, I can't see your images...:shrug:

07 July 2002, 08:16 AM
No, I can now!!!!lol :bounce: Great!! Yeah, his head looks good!!
Fred is alive!!! :D

07 July 2002, 08:33 AM
not exactly a happy fella, eh :cool:

Looking good, Soeren. Can't wait to see you do the clothes and the weapon .. the pressure is on!! art7..'s sketches are simply too cool for you to relax now .. work, work, work .. (and drink some coffee :drool: )

The weather here in DK sux anyways .. might as well stay indoors and make nice 3D for your fans :bowdown:

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 08:43 AM
ARGH!!! Im out of coffee!

07 July 2002, 10:55 AM
you guys are f****** great!
can't belive that two poeple fit such great together in creating a 3D character!
Soeren Nielsen...what software did u use?!
u are very skilled in modelling (how long did ya made 3d models)

and of course art7sayan.... your style of drawing is such awesome...and u have cool ideas (i mean the suit and the head design)
when i saw your scetches i realized that i had a lot to learn to improve my skills in drawing (but i oktober i will study grafik&design in berlin)

anyway your projekt is really good......

Soeren Nielsen
07 July 2002, 12:10 PM
hey DXtreme thanks alot, words like that really gets me motivated :)

I use Lightwave and I have made cg for about 6 years, someone else also asked me about that, a more detailed post about earlier in this thread.

And for a small update, Fred is really beginning to bite :cool:
gave him some teeth

back to work :D

07 July 2002, 01:00 PM
wow for about 6 years..i do cg for about 5 month now (intensiv)..i hope i get such skilled..i'm using cinema 4d!
next time i'll reproduce an old sketch of mine! i've done for a demo for Daimler Chrysler Design Department!
now it's only bad 2d concept, but i think my skills in c4d are now enough to start this projekt!
i will post some sketsches and w.i.p.'s in this board or in Work in progress section!
hope i can start soon!
but as you know best..this needs time and time is the thing that have nobody enough!

i think the teeth looks good so far..realistc i mean!

A few poses before I hit my trusty old bed (the only thing in life you can really count on)

I had some fun doing these..

First the "Im bigger than you" pose.

And the "beerdrinker" pose.

07 July 2002, 09:01 PM
i've seen the first image(at the begining of the thread) and i think i would have liked him with smaller legs...maby forced...disproportional like some kind of mutated zombie.

07 July 2002, 03:18 AM
wow Fred moves now!!! :bounce: lol Cool poses Soeren!

Hey Soeren , where are you? lol

Anyway, here is a quick try in Painter for the design of Fred's head (reference to my sketches), it's the front view. If you can post a back view of his head I will try to do the same thing on it.
Hope that it will help u!


08 August 2002, 01:01 PM

Hi all, first : congratulation for art7sayan & Soeren Nielsen ... very good team work ! :thumbsup: :buttrock:

second : for Soeren : what is your 3D modeling software ?
and for art7sayan : what is your inspiration source ?

See ya'

08 August 2002, 12:22 PM
Salut Skyrick! :D

I think that all is good to be inspired of... but of course my main inspiration comes from comic strip ...
I got one man, one big man in mind : "Frezzato" but my style isn't from him , I build mine lookin' at all sort of comic strip eastern and western's style (manga, comics, european's comic strip) ...all is good!
Listening music makes me draw like a beast too!! I don't know why! :shrug: :xtreme: !

@+ camarade!

Hi Skyrick, thanks for the nice comment. I work in Lightwave, and have been playing around with messiah.

I hope to be able to update tonight, have been working on the freelance stuff all day, and right now Im pretty fed up with it ;)

08 August 2002, 03:48 PM
What happened to this? You guys were on a roll and that character was lookin' bad as hell. Is it finished, or has it been scrapped?

08 August 2002, 04:13 PM
Don't worry Indolent, Fred is still alive! :D

Soeren Nielsen will come back soon! ;)


Soeren Nielsen
08 August 2002, 02:32 AM
Yeah Fred is still alive, I just have some work I need to finish before I can spend any more time on it.

08 August 2002, 06:32 AM

08 August 2002, 08:03 AM

Just kidding, but really looking forward to an update ;)
