Really good work.
The only thing I'd say is that the women hands look bit weird.

01 January 2002, 06:41 PM
Nice posing (especialy the girl)
nice gear too, i like them very much.
keep it up

01 January 2002, 06:51 PM
really marvellous work Caroline!! I love the subtilities in your characters... your work goes better and better! bravo!!

01 January 2002, 06:58 PM
Great stuff! I like the anatomy of the big guy, subtle and natural!

01 January 2002, 07:20 PM
very cool work

great models~~

01 January 2002, 07:46 PM
I really like the softness and subtlety you used, in both characters. It instantly creates a mood - even without textures....great stuff.

01 January 2002, 08:01 PM
Excellent Stuff,
I love the proportions on the models, Great clean design

:D :D :D :D :D :D

nice work ether strong characture design. The female is really solid , the ork is also ,the only thing is his feet seem off but that could just be me. None the less awsome

01 January 2002, 10:12 PM
Thanks for all the replies:)

koroko: These characters were originally made for a project at University, but I'm planning on using them in a short story and animating them in the future.

A few more images:

The orc in the early stages of development.

and a close up of Ness's hands.

01 January 2002, 11:13 PM
Those are some really nice designs. Very clean. I really like the orc.

01 January 2002, 11:58 PM
Great work, ether!

The orc bears a vague resemblance to one of Bay Raitt's characters from some years back. I'm curious to know if you're a fan of his design?

BTW, I think the hands (on both characters) are fantastic!

01 January 2002, 12:00 AM

01 January 2002, 12:59 AM

01 January 2002, 02:11 AM
wow! Really nice models. they are gonna be really sweet once textured up.


01 January 2002, 04:48 AM
Outstanding, well thought out characters, including those at your website. The anatomy and style of the big guy in particular, is excellent.
Very inspiring.

01 January 2002, 05:05 AM
Amazing modeling! :D

01 January 2002, 06:29 AM
amazing models, I realy like the look of them,
I was wondering what technique you used to create the hair for Ness and some of the other models on your site.
The work on your site is also very nice.

about ness's hand, I think the knuckels are a bit too sharp.
The way she's holding the bow also doesn't look right.
The back of the orc could also use a litle more muscle definition.

01 January 2002, 07:35 AM
tres beaux travaille.. :-)

01 January 2002, 07:58 AM
so good!

01 January 2002, 10:26 AM

01 January 2002, 01:06 PM

Very nice characters !!!!
It's "soft" modeling ! :D
They're very expressive. Nice ! Good job !

I also used to like your little girl you show on 3dvf.
You got a real talent !

Go on !


01 January 2002, 05:01 PM
Some very nice models !!!! You really have a good feel for anatomy...

it places a picture in wireframe or lowpoly...

01 January 2002, 05:53 PM
Hey, thanks everyone:)

Konyn: I use lofts to create the hair for my characters. And thanks for pointing out that the knuckles are too sharp on Ness's hands - I'm fixing that at the moment.

ZPitt: I'm using 3D Studio for both these characters, and Brazil to render them.

And here are wireframes of them both,

01 January 2002, 07:13 PM
Beautiful models, congratulations!:D

Nothing to add, except I would love to see them animated...

01 January 2002, 07:20 PM
simply wonderfull, love the characters design.. now lets se them textured :)

01 January 2002, 09:13 PM
Go Go Uruk-hai!!!! :D

01 January 2002, 09:47 PM
there is a lack of females in the 3d industry, and you are one of the best from them
perfect modeling

just perfect


01 January 2002, 12:45 AM
You just raised my level of expectations a few notches.

Very nice models....the only thing that I was wondering
about was the dramatic expression of the "orc",
his proportions (especially the legs) remind me of a balletdancer.
which gives him quite an elegant and noble appearance...

If this is what you were aiming

But if he's suppose to be a badass threatening character..
then I would try to exxagerate (spelling???) his heavy muscle
and bonestructure much more.....

This would help to give both characters a much more
antagonistic expression which would greatly improve their
expressive impact in storytellingm (and in my humble opinion,
even whithout any animation a model should already be
telling a story!)



01 January 2002, 04:38 AM
Well....what can I say? Just....WOOOWWW!!!:D

01 January 2002, 05:19 AM
Fantastic work . . . . . Now, tell me how you do it!

01 January 2002, 05:40 AM
Nice work, I like the at ease muscles , usually some tend to show them too much. the ork is great but i think his nails are a little ....
hmm..too feminin. The rest is fabulous work. ;)

01 January 2002, 06:58 AM
Beautiful. I would like to refer to:
Very nice models....the only thing that I was wondering

I would like to disagree, because the standard image of an orc is a bulky heavy-boned dude. I like the legs and I do not think you should change them. They all look great, keep up the good work!

01 January 2002, 07:15 AM
Beautiful design. However the neck area seems too thick to allow for the guy to look at his feet without bending over.

01 January 2002, 07:31 AM
Very nice work.

Do you use meshtools?

01 January 2002, 08:21 AM
Wonderful Work, Love the detail, What technique you use for the modeling may I ask?

01 January 2002, 03:40 AM
Perfect job, fantastic anatomy

01 January 2002, 03:58 AM
Thanks again:)

HBV-108: I use the subdivision modeling technique.

TheSymbol: Thanks for pointing that out, however I feel as though thats part of the style.

thirdeye: A balletdancer hey? :) Well, I did want to make him look different, but you just gave me some good ideas - thanks

01 January 2002, 04:42 AM
:p Jumps on bandwagon and yelps.. nice modelling and nice to see more women getting a high profile. :p :) :)

01 January 2002, 04:50 AM
