View Full Version : character: Kiro_3dmaxModel

02 February 2004, 08:45 PM
I have finally started to learn 3dmax(learned Maya first). It's hard to get used to but I think I'm getting the swing of it. Here is my first product... It's one of my charcters called Kiro. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

---- doesnt look bad

IŽve got to go IŽll crit later

02 February 2004, 05:36 PM
cool does he really need the indents on his gauntlets and boot straps tho? he doesnt look very hi-res so id remove the indents and add the polys else where but thats me also the back of his legs are straight pull that edge loop out at the back slightly or something

02 February 2004, 05:37 PM
looks like you have a lot of areas were you could make quads and lower your poly count.

02 February 2004, 06:06 PM
how do u mean matzu? the polycount (unless im mistaken) is in tri's and the fact he has a mix of quads or tri's on the model wouldnt alter the tri count :)

02 February 2004, 11:14 PM
Good points, Commy. I'll change the back of his leg and probably loose the indents on the gauntlets. I like the strap though:)

Matzu, the count is in tris... so it wouldn't make a difference. Although I probably could still edit it down a bit.

Prs-Phil, I look forward to your crit.

I should have an update by tommorow. Cheers!

Good stuff. Looking forward to the textures.

02 February 2004, 01:50 AM
Looks perrty cool. I'd definitely lose the gauntlet indents, and unless he's supposed to have some hard edge armour plating on his chest (which may be the case,) round out his chest area with the polys gleaned.


02 February 2004, 07:50 PM
Gnome- I'm looking forward to getting the uvs done and starting the texturing.

pseudoBug- I've taken out the gauntlet indents... I'll just texture them. Thanks for the input.

02 February 2004, 12:09 AM
everything has been said, ... its not a killer char but its a soled model.

Maybe his torso is to long, try moving the whole feet until the hip area, upwards.

The only thing that bothers me are the unturned edges on the right knee.

waiting for the texture :)

03 March 2004, 06:52 AM
Here's my uvs... There isn't much stretching that I can find. My main concern is the layout of them. Thanks

03 March 2004, 07:18 AM
Thats gonna look real nice when its all textured :)

Thats a pretty cool checker text too heh, where did you find that?

03 March 2004, 06:20 PM
TRyanD; Hopefully it'll look good when it's textured :] The checker pattern is from my teacher(Gnome, who posted above). I'm taking a 3d for Videogames part time course at Vancouver Film School. I'm sure he won't mind if I share it.

Gnome; if you don't want this up just let me know and I'll take it off.

03 March 2004, 07:53 PM
Here's an update of the flat colours and some of the layout done.

03 March 2004, 11:09 PM
the colours are looking good, give'r matty...................................j

Not sure why you've decided to paint the torso as his skin. First of all you've not modeled the pecs at all, and the way that you've modelled the rebcage is a bit weird. The way that it is modelled, I was assuming that he would have some sort of armor up there. I'd definitely rework the torso if your going the skin route.

But hey, it's your model.

03 March 2004, 12:35 AM
Thanks Bink

pseudoBug... I guess I should've posted some conceptart. It should make more sense now.

and actually this model is going off of a 3rd version of this character. I just don't have a cleaned up version to scan. Hope it works better now.

03 March 2004, 01:33 AM
Aahh! Makes a bit more sense now. You still might want to round out the pecs a bit.

By the way; Are these your concept drawings? They're quite tasty.

03 March 2004, 07:44 PM
cool. try to use more of your texture space. i know from your work in the past that you do good texture work. But i would try to use like 90 percent of your texture space if you can.

03 March 2004, 11:57 PM
Thanks for the input guys. I'll make sure to use more of the texture space with my next model. I want to do another model really soon seeing as how this was my first in Max and I learned a ton while doing this one.

pseudoBug.... glad it makes more sense. And you're right about the pecs. The concepts are mine. Glad you liked them. You can check my site for more.

03 March 2004, 01:02 AM
Why do you use numbers on the checkerboard?

03 March 2004, 01:28 AM
so you can see if the uvs are flipped or not

03 March 2004, 07:12 PM
Starting to go in a different direction with the chest. What do you think?

03 March 2004, 04:22 PM
better start. much more consistent I think.
