View Full Version : my ogre WIP

01 January 2002, 09:01 AM
here's an ogre I've been working on. he's still not done, but I figured I'd show him off a little and see what people think.

**update** full body pics posted on page two :D

01 January 2002, 09:05 AM
I have seen a lot of ogres on other forums, this one is nice, very original as orgres go.

01 January 2002, 09:22 AM
wow, looks good, can't wait to see it when your finished.

This is good :) I don't have much to say... the nose, the wrikles, the mouth...everything is very well done... hummm... what's with the eyes, are they closed or he just has really small eyes ?

good work


01 January 2002, 09:53 AM
yeah, I was going to mention something about the eyes...

his eyes are closed at the moment. I'm planning to rig the face all up and move it around, so I modeled the lids shut so they would be easier to skin.
hopefully that will happen soon, then I'll post some pics of various facial expressions.

and thanks for the comments.

That is a really nice model - good execution. It's good to see such a wicked range of styles and talents on this forum. I am really impressed with the quality of everything I have seen.

Makes me want to work harder :D

01 January 2002, 11:08 AM
Nice Ogre! I like the folds around the eye areas, very convincing. Looks great so far...

01 January 2002, 12:31 AM

01 January 2002, 01:46 AM

the teeth are just placeholders... I'm working on the real ones now
I'll try and get more final pics of him up soon.

01 January 2002, 01:55 AM

01 January 2002, 09:02 AM
I really like the forehead/brow area, this is going to be amazing when textured.

01 January 2002, 09:47 AM
Good stuff! Can you post a pic of the wireframe before smoothing. I would love to see how you handled the wrinkles.

01 January 2002, 02:28 PM

but its teeth have just posed on its mouth you should inflate his lips has this levels...

Great... still in wire or lowpoly, Please.

02 February 2002, 01:23 PM
ok, you asked for it, so here it is... the ogre's wireframe, in unsmoothed and smoothed formats.
keep in mind he's still in progress, so don't thrash me too hard.

02 February 2002, 12:20 AM
Cool Thx! I dig how you modeled the forehead and ears.

02 February 2002, 12:48 AM
impressive work, he remids me of my ex boss.. :D

02 February 2002, 12:51 AM
I love it!! Very very good job!

Are you going to do the body?

02 February 2002, 02:32 AM
good for the head go for the full body :D I like the curves and smooth modelling you did there.. good work!

03 March 2002, 03:58 AM
I'm finally done with his body... check it out. let me know what you think

03 March 2002, 03:58 AM
and a back view...

03 March 2002, 04:06 AM
Whoah. Nice job! Ogre as envisioned by Bernini. Very cool.
Toes look a little cramped at the end of the foot, but otherwise a stellar job.

Can't wait to see what you do next!


03 March 2002, 04:10 AM
nice model. can you animate him?

03 March 2002, 04:11 AM
holy crap!!!!

03 March 2002, 04:42 AM
Wow. Is he on "the steroids"?
Very cool, I like the size variance....

and of course, what post is complete without .... :buttrock:


03 March 2002, 04:53 AM
he look so great..
i love the body proportion !!!
ytrmly cool job !!!!
i want one as pet.. can i have one ? :-)
:applause: :buttrock: :applause:

03 March 2002, 07:45 AM

I love the proportions, especially the small head to large body. Are you going to animate him any time soon?

03 March 2002, 09:06 AM
wow, thats intense.

maybe if you flattened the foot a little and lengthed the toes?

you know its good if someone is suggesting changes to the the toes :D

do you have some close up images of the upper body and also of the hands (they look real good)?

03 March 2002, 09:15 AM
Hi there nathan...

I normally hate to reply just to say WOW, great work mate!!

Gonna hate myself for a while....

WOW, great work mate!!!

Skillfull modelling!!


03 March 2002, 09:38 AM
I think it looks great but the head could be a little bit bigger. Thats just my opinion though. Great work

03 March 2002, 09:43 AM
Yes, I agree with you guys...WOW!

I sure would like to see the rough poly of the body though.

03 March 2002, 10:59 AM
Hot damn, those proportions are dope, dont change them.:wip:

03 March 2002, 06:43 PM
Don't change a thing, it's absolutely gorgeous man, *Mr. Burns voice* exxxxxxxxxxxcellent :applause:

now deck him out with some gear, and texture him :) what software are you using? cause I really love the render also.


03 March 2002, 09:14 PM
that owns quite alot

dang! and you don t have a website what a shame ;)

I wonder if we can see your avatar too cause it seems nice too.

03 March 2002, 09:26 PM
Just another "WOW"

03 March 2002, 11:09 PM
I'd say the proportions are great. He's awesome!

03 March 2002, 01:00 AM
whoa... when i saw the head i thought "dudes pretty good"... then i scrolled down to the bottom and saw the body and was like "crap, dudes really good."

my only crits are the incongruous combo of the head and body and the muscle striation across his pecks. separately the head and body are both very nice, but together i feel the head detracts from the splendor of the body. the neck muscles seem to call out for a head/head placement more akin to Blur Studios "pit" character, Greg Capullo's "Creech" or if nothing else at least a larger head. as far as the muscles striation across the chest the top line seems cool but the way the lower one cuts across the nipple so deeply seems to detract from the form.

fantastic model. love the direction your heading in, and echoing the calls of others... post some wireframes... pretty please.

03 March 2002, 04:22 AM

Reminds me of this by Bay Rait:

03 March 2002, 11:40 AM
Incredible! True perfection.

03 March 2002, 02:12 PM
Really impressive !

Just a littl' question : did you tweak the lips : what mickatt said was true, I dunno if you fixed it (apperently not, but I cannot say, the picture is quite small).

Anyway, 5 stars ! IMPRESSIVE ! WOW !!!

03 March 2002, 08:51 PM
Where do you work?:eek:

04 April 2002, 01:11 AM
thanks for the comments folks

to answer some questions:
yes, technically he could be animated... I've got him mostly rigged up, that's how I posed him. but since I'm not an animator, I personally wouldn't want to animate him ;)

and yes, I did change the lips to match the teeth some more. here's a new pic of his head so you can see better. oh, and I finally opened his eyes so they don't look so tiny (of course, they're still pretty small, but that's what I was going for)

04 April 2002, 01:17 AM
Matt Clark: actually, that head reminds me of this face test I did of the ogre :)

04 April 2002, 01:24 AM
oh, and here's a shot of him unposed. this is how I modeled him, in case anyone was cursious...

04 April 2002, 10:13 PM
I'm still curious to see a roughed Poly of him... Progressive shots... Not finished product. Let's see how it's put together.

04 April 2002, 01:54 AM

Real C.G. up in here!

the thing is that, just a week ago I made a 2D that looks kinda like this.

I see the WHOLE community is SHOOCK up by the orc/ogre/troll idea. I like it! But if a begginer attempts to do some of those chars he'll be accused with compying and stuf.

Anyways REALLY REALLY REALLLLLLLY good! dimensions of the the Scale :D

04 April 2002, 02:11 AM
I know that he's supposed to have extreme proportions, but I don't think it fits together! He looks like he's 3 different characters stuck together! I think, smaller hands/feet and a bigger head! ..not by much, but I definietly think it's too extreme at the moment! ..other than that, GREAT modeling! ;)

04 April 2002, 03:43 AM
very nice model.
I like these exagerated proportions. I think it could work quite good in some extreme Dof shots.
Are you going to texture him as well?
And how about the rig. Some nice muscle expressions would be great.

really good stuff.


06 June 2002, 08:23 AM
The best ogre i ever seen!!:buttrock:

06 June 2002, 08:25 AM
Nathan have you done anymore work on him since?
