Hallo, hopefully I'll go for "The Bride" in yellow. I;ve been following this forum for quite a while now, but never had the chance to enter a contest. No more talking, on with the bride.

Look below for reference on Gerard Obelix

this character is already taken I believe.

03 March 2004, 01:33 PM
Oooppsss!!! Just saw the thread. Ok, maybe I'll try something else...

I almost modeled Chiaki Kuriyama (Go Go Yubari) from the same movie. Just a thought, if you were still looking for a character.

03 March 2004, 10:18 AM
Thanks for the idea man. Actually Chiaki Kuriyama was my first idea but didn't manage to find many photo references. Right now I'm thinking of something on Zerard Depardie on Asterix and Obelix, or maybe Ralph Fiennes on "Red Dragon" with that amazing tattoo on his back....

Still not sure for the comp though!!!

Thanks for the inspiration again Lord Dubu and good luck with the comp!!!

Ok, dokey....after searching and validating the uniqueness of this entrance here I go.....

I'm going for that "not so fat" Obelix, in Asterix and Obelix movies played by Gerard Depardie:

Hopefully I'll come up with some updates....

excellent selection. great structural stuff to play with. i didn't know there was an asterix movie. when was it released. can't wait to see a wip on this.

03 March 2004, 10:02 AM
Obelisk thanks...I hope I'll make it with that task

Ok,Ok...started of with the modelling and I think I completed the head. So here it is.

Because we've been looking each other for quite a time I would appreciate some comments to improve him....
Thank you

...and the wires.
The polycount so far is 1518 with no optimization. Also had problems finding high resolution images to create a I'll probably build it from scratch....(unless I can get some grabs from the movies of course, If I find it somewhere near me!!)

and a face closeup

See you soon with updates

hahaha excellent model! for some reason it made me feel very happy. must be the goofy smile.

wasn't monica belluci in that film? I planned to see it but never got around to it.

looks like gerard from the side pretty well, but the front seems a little narrow, and the eye's seem ccloser together. his eye's and eye socckets seem more pronounced and defined in the reference you posted. keep truckin'

Okey....started with the body and arms. I have to mention that mainly I'm using as reference the second movie (Asterix and Obelix against Cleopatra, or something...) where Depardieu is a bit more roundish than the first movie. And on that movie Cleopatra is Belucci as Snowfly mentioned!!
Ok, is my progress....not started tweaking the head yet but it is planned.


04 April 2004, 03:44 PM
On with the wires....currently at 2405 tris for the whole thingy....I believe I need some more polys on the feet...

and a back view...

and here is some, very distant, side body reference

04 April 2004, 10:56 AM
Almost finished base modelling....only shoes missing now. The model now stands just below 3K tris and with the rest I'll add details and staff on it....

Here it is

and a back view...

I know the light and is a bit off.....I'll try fixing that...

04 April 2004, 11:00 AM
Also tweaked a bit the head and started texturing...from scratch....No good hi res photo on Depardieu found.....

Anyway here is my progress so far...Lots and lots of color refining needed and details to add too....Tried some bump and specular but with no good results....

and another view...

I'll be off for a week so please C&C to the bone!!!Hopefully I'll have the whole thing setup on 18th of April...
