View Full Version : Still: Metal Slug Character.

04 April 2004, 06:15 PM
This is a cartoonish vietnam...jungle whatever... soldier (It's based on the Metal Slug game character, maybe someone recognize him)
well, I made the gun long ago then the soldier, feel bad about wasting them, so I made a background with Zbrush2 a couple of days ago, Hope you like it :D

Max, Photoshop and ZBrush2 were used here :

EDIT: Character only :

very nice, it looks like clay.

04 April 2004, 07:00 PM
Looks like an action figure, but seems it's intentional. Also, i'd change the composition a bit, make it not so symmetrical (you know, golden mean...).

04 April 2004, 07:04 PM
i agree w. azazel... somethimg like moving the character to the left 1/3 of the image.

his nose and elbow seem a bit too sharp/pointy, but otherwise it's really great

04 April 2004, 07:27 PM
Whoa, cool! I also wanted to model Marco (that's his name) a while back...

Very cool, I like it a lot, although he seems too rigid, as already said, like an action figure.

I love when people do CG that looks like it's made of clay, so I'd be happy even if the picture didn't already r0xors.

My only crit would be that it looks a little dark for daytime, like you put something over the lens.

04 April 2004, 10:55 PM
hahah thats awesome, i love metal slug and you really brought it out .. gw bud :applause:

04 April 2004, 12:50 AM
I like it. It really looks like a toy. Even the set looks like its made out of painted plastic. It would be nice to see some other angles.

04 April 2004, 01:23 AM
Same as the others! It really has a plastic effect! Nice work on that one! But... try something more as been said!

04 April 2004, 01:41 AM
Very cool, are you going to make any of the other characters? Maby a POW or soldier would be cool

04 April 2004, 02:49 AM
pretty neat.I also like how everything looks like its made of clay. ive always liked that look to begin with and it fits in so nice with this.

04 April 2004, 03:30 AM
I don't really have anything of value to add, insofar as I'd like to say that, as a lover of the Metal Slug games, this kicks ass.

04 April 2004, 03:48 AM
Very nice, expressive, impressive indeed.
I have only one thig to say:
The soldier is walking on mud, but it has no stins on it's boots.

Maybe my suggestion would destroy the cartoon look and feel, but I think you loose nothing if you make some tests...

04 April 2004, 10:36 AM
Very nice, this one made me smile. It's easily recognized as a character from Metal Slug. If there's ever a 3D-version of the game, I hope it will look something like this.
I'd maybe change the composition a bit, so that the character would come out more from the background...

04 April 2004, 11:42 AM
I always wanted to make it look like clay, so Im happy with the replies :love:

chasejase: yeah, I was thinking about making some scene in a town, the problem was that the enemy must be some nazi and the games have always been very...bloody , and modeling nazi gore cartoons is something that could be found... disgusting, so
I did some jungle instead.

Daimyo: he has some subtle mud and dirt on the boots, I put more at first but it looked more like a poor cartoon guy who is just getting buried... so I tried to make it look like he was walking and then stopped to watch the signal.

thanks all for the crits!

Rick Dangerous ??
This character makes me think of a hero of old videoGame on Atari !

04 April 2004, 07:05 PM
i like it.

really neat style.

the only thing i would change is the contrast

it all seems to blend together
its hard for the eye to see what is importaint

I also remember the metal slug backgrounds being insane

not that i would change this image, but in case you wanted to futher develope other scenes

cool stuff:applause:

04 April 2004, 09:37 PM
A great model from one of my favourite arcade games.

As a few others have said it would be great to see a scene from the game, one of the cities perhaps, or even the Metal Slug itself.

Could you render a different view, may be slightly more head on as I would love to see some more of the character.

04 April 2004, 10:20 PM
Oh wow, that's practically what I image when I play Metal Slug games, perfect! :thumbsup:

04 April 2004, 12:19 AM
Thanks all for posting,
I appreciate the crits and enjoy the fact that there are so different opinions about it

jamesaevans: I edited the first post and post a render of the character only too

(sorry about the blur effect, the original render was too small :wip: )

04 April 2004, 01:15 AM
Very good

04 April 2004, 02:29 AM

"Marco, grab the heavy machinegun and haul outta there!" Hey, plan on modling the Metal Slug Tank?:surprised

05 May 2004, 06:53 AM
Very Nice. I like the colors and also the depth field effect.

Keep going.

05 May 2004, 10:50 AM
