the composition is great!

This is an unique style u have , the pic not perfectly fit in the back makes it funny and confusing .
Nice work:beer:

Great character, awesome lighting too.

04 April 2004, 09:07 PM
for some reason I imagine that he smells like vinegar and tomato. i am not sure why.

it looks totally awesome.

i love it all!:buttrock:

Hi Christophe!

Sieht super aus! Background passt fr mich nicht ganz, aber, das is ja dabei Nebensache ;-)

Beautiful work Chris :) You've put a lot of effort into this one...

04 April 2004, 10:35 PM
excellent, I really like the final. :thumbsup: 10 bouncy clapping thumbs up guys

04 April 2004, 10:47 PM
Chris, great to see the final on this... it's amazing!!!

04 April 2004, 02:04 AM

Yeah well I think it's brilliant!

I like realistic stuff but I like the stuff that goes a bit further more:thumbsup:

I'd make his eyeballs glassy to bring out the roughness of his face texture in contrast.

Killer textures BTW!

hi christoph , good result
good expression in some pose
the only thing maybe the eyelashes kinda look like female one with ellen-betrix :)
though just another pro piece

05 May 2004, 10:27 AM
stunning !
German invading Africa again ? :)
the whole rendering tells us, deep into enemy's sun-burnt territory :P
i'm not sure about the background, still maybe a little bit strong (despite it's blurred) ... Well, with such a sun burning, some slight heat distorsions might help :)

great great anway !

05 May 2004, 11:05 AM

05 May 2004, 10:04 AM

nice moustace ....remind me of a famous person from World War Two!!

really ? :surprised

05 May 2004, 12:25 AM
Hey man nice work,like the character very much.:buttrock:

05 May 2004, 02:06 AM
Great stuff! I love the style and lighting here. I think it's too bad you didn't make a proper scene for the background. He looks totally out of place in his WW2/WH40K outfit against the modern tank and crew. At least try to find a suitable WW2 picture but even better...model an environment! ;)

I think the best pose is the third one but might look better with him looking ahead sternly instead of closing his eyes; thoughtful but focused as opposed to thoughtful and distracted.

Keep it up, hope you make a full scene out of this!

Just found this thread.

Really like the image and am a big fan of this style of non photoreal modeling.

Just thought I'd say great stuff.


07 July 2004, 10:24 PM
Love it. I can see the warhammer inspiration you brought to the character. As well, that exspressivness is great in those last couple.

I thought he didn't match the background though, looks a little funny imo.


07 July 2004, 03:35 AM
Man that is GOOD work:scream:


07 July 2004, 05:02 AM
Facial expressions are the best I've seen yet. I like the wrinkles in his face and the bad eye he has. Excellent modelling.

07 July 2004, 09:07 AM
thx guys

Animation? well .. may be ..soon.. if i find some time ...

07 July 2004, 01:34 PM
Yo Yo Yo! Keep on going!
