Dae Rodrigo! boa sorte cara!
good luck man!

04 April 2004, 12:17 PM
Hei! testing the post system (i'm sorry for inexperience in foruns and the english language).


04 April 2004, 12:51 PM
:hmm: my scanner is [DEAD]

I think in some ideas for this theme...

my method actualy is:

1. I making a inventary of references about flesh, visceral components and anatomy references (human and animal)

2. I think in photograph my own references of machines and eletric-mechanical dispositives, also the web images can help in the process...

3. My brain is actualy allocating two principal ideas:

3.1.a concept inspirated in a templary rider; [ cavaleiro templário ], combinating medieval theme whith religious cruzades, honor and justice systems and the objective precise: hunt and aniquilation of devils; your construction bio-mechanoid is projected for amply and potencialise your system of psico perceptions (like the Astral world, the oniric space) and the periferical senses like vision, audition and scent. this project also contain biological increments of other species for implement this power in the character.

(thanks vinicius menezes for this work, is inspirational man!)

3.2. a concept inspirated in a butcher, (meat cutter). a person whit lot of power to destruct and treatment of flesh. This person is brutal, and her danger factor is her INCONSIENSCE, your alienation and apathy. Your creation is product of a union the parts of dead and psico-corrupted human persons and machines.

well, at work!

04 April 2004, 01:24 PM

I'm working inthe concept fundamented in "THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR".

05 May 2004, 10:45 PM
dae, Rodrigo, bem-vindo ao fórum, de minha parte, eheh.
Quero ver isso entrar em andamento, hein? vo tá acompanhando, abração

PS: dá uma olhada nisso e me diz o que tu acha. Valeu

hello people.

My scanner still is DEAD.:surprised

I have problems with the focus and resolution of the camera, but this are the first studies of the T.E.M.P.L.A.R. project.

sorry for inexperience.:rolleyes:

The first "blur" image:(the set of "photo session")
and the first zoom in the "blur" image:

the second zoom. the details of sketches are extreme lossy and undefined...
The concepr is a mature soldier, age + or - 40 years old. the studies of anatomy are important; the "superdeformed" anatomy is inapropriate for this personality... Her power is a combination of sapiense, conscience and senses aprimorated by mechanisms and bio-electrical implants.

05 May 2004, 05:31 AM
however I not have make substancial definitions for the concept, in the photoshop I make some colors experiment...

In this week I pretense buy a scanner... :hmm:

05 May 2004, 03:08 PM
Wow Rodrigo!
This is coming out realy cool!
Hope U get a scanner fast so we can see it in a biger,better resolution.
Check out this sites, I belive U don't know the first yet, and it would be a good reference I gess.


Feng Zhu's page. U probably know (

See' ya!

PS: quero olhar de perto lá no cal esses desenhos!

05 May 2004, 04:08 PM
Nice job you gotta going there!!!!For the moment the last one makes me think a little bit of a viking!

05 May 2004, 07:01 PM
Thanks Ville for the inestimable tips. Art by Feng is fantastic!

In the [CAL], wednesday, the drawings will be in your hands!

I made my own "book" of drawing, tradicional in the CAL... hehehe

The art of Pandar is AMAZING!!!:thumbsup:

Your references are THE MOST. Thanks!!!

OKMER, thanks for the collaboration... I will think in the viking theme.:)

05 May 2004, 08:23 PM
Hei guys, although the T.E.M.P.L.A.R. bio-system are programed to be a superior lifeform, with superior conscience and sense of honor, justice and grace... the METHOD used for the combat at devils are violent and without pain... decapitations are a good and effective system of aniquilation... :rolleyes:

the "blur" continues... :shrug:

05 May 2004, 08:28 PM
The anterior post is corrupted. sorry.:surprised

05 May 2004, 11:43 PM
Cool stuff!!
I have a sugestion, though:
It'll be a mix of machine and flesh, right?
so I thought of a machine structure, simulating the toraxic (is that spelled right?) cage and other parts and the flesh part like one of the drawings U made, like showing the muscle strings.
Well, good luk in the contest!

PS: Yes the PANZAR project is amazing! (so is Zhu)

05 May 2004, 12:23 AM
Thanks Ville for your suggests... I like very much the idea of uses the aspect "muscle strigs" in the flesh parts, but the concept of the T.E.M.P.L.A.R to make necessary the use of mechanical parts and eletronic implements in a NORMAL anatomy...

Is this important because the final machine is a artificial cyber-biological system, and some the ESSENCIAL and UNIQUE parts of human person and inteligence to be used for this composite. This natural systems are impossible for the machines to copy;

Then this human parts - includes hands, thorax (whith heart, the vertebral column and the neurological system), face and brain must be normal and very expressive, because are engaged in perform the principal function in the person: incorporate the POWER of consciense, whit some paradoxes : FORCE and NICENESS of human power, the VIOLENCE and FAITH, the ABSOLUTE CHASTITY and PRUDENCE... VALOR of the authentic TEMPLAR KNIGHT, the guardian of the SECRET DOUTRINE...

Maybe the "exposed flash" remove this power and expressivity... I think in a style more dramatic, and the reality aspect of a human...

Well, about the concept, I pretense publish more details...



your friend

LONDERO. FORCE MAN!!!:thumbsup:
05 May 2004, 03:18 AM
Man your sketches rocks!
I've seen the first one on CAL already, but the others are really cool, the muscle studies and the last one are kickassing, lol.
Well, as a tip, i thinking in some mechanical hands, the ones that makes the "dirty jobs" have to be mechanical, i dont know if i make myself clear, but, think in some mechanical hands, and also in one of them bigger than the other, like a big mech glove or something...hehehe i talk too much...hehehehe

Keep the good job

05 May 2004, 03:19 AM
I dont know if my comments are going to the forum...

05 May 2004, 05:44 AM
CAra, ta ficando massa!!
Great job man, keep up that excelent work!

05 May 2004, 10:44 AM
Ok, I'm going to Carazinho city. Wednesday I'll be back...

then, I'll make more studies about expressive poses and mechanical parts.


:buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock: hehehehe

Orlando [the YOYOMAN], que satisfação!!! Great idea, I'will think about the "mechapower implements... in the right hand... the POWER and JUST HAND of the T.E.M.P.L.A.R. rider"


Vinicius, the master... Thanks for your incentive... :thumbsup:

"...He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty...", 91 psalm

05 May 2004, 10:49 AM

I'm back to Santa Maria.

Today, in the night, I will post new studies of antomy resources.

Now, I'm going to geomatics studies in the UFSM. :hmm:

The T.E.M.P.L.A.R project continues...

05 May 2004, 03:26 PM
Its my last studies. The last sketches not approach with the graphic and emotion concept planned of the original idea, but...

I'm working in the poses and ideas for the backgrounds... I have a idea of a scene "the battle of demons" at the limbo, whit some decapitate evils. Maybe a particular scene of devils, like the luxury theme, the original and most dangerous pecado,envolving all kind of sexy creatures...

the blur:

05 May 2004, 03:54 PM
some "blur details" of the sketches:shrug:

05 May 2004, 09:16 PM
The ultimate posts are corrupted because a blackout in the server... sorry.:hmm:

05 May 2004, 10:34 PM
Cool job man
Makes me think "Da Vinci", theese studies of humanparts....


05 May 2004, 12:10 AM
Thanks vincent_v. Your incentive and the other guys are a imense force to continues the project.

But, this time, Da Vinci moves yourself in the tomb!!!:scream:

I'm working in a sketches to compose the cene of a TEMPLAR in a battle of evils.:)


05 May 2004, 12:41 AM
A Templar? aint that some kind of Holy Knight?
destroying evils an nonbelievers?
Wouldnt be good if such a guy was made out of corpses from the crypy:)
Looking forward to se more updates..:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 12:55 AM

YES, The TEMPLAR is a HOLY knight. exact!

But, sorry, I dont understend the second phrase, my english its banal... :blush:

I'm very interesting in your opinion... is this - your sugestion - the templar is composite with parts of corpses?

well, I'm sorry.

Thanks for your force. at work!:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 02:05 AM
e ai rodrigo. nada a acrecentar... indo bem...continua assim...
quero vê isso pronto...

05 May 2004, 03:36 AM
Daniel, thanks for the force

This is my first experiment in terms of expression, compose, line direction... I think in some devils to combat...

Its a lastime, a hurt, the fact: I need sleep...:shrug:

FORCE friends! The CRUZADE is starting...

05 May 2004, 03:36 AM
Dae cara, seguinte...naum sei se estou certo. mas achu q tu tem q mandar tuas imagens atraves do site do concurso....eles num podem ser de um servidor externo, senão elas num vão valer...só um toque...da uma verificada

no mais, GREAT WORK!

05 May 2004, 03:46 AM
Daniel, thanks for the force.

VinÃ_cius, Thanks for the precious information and example.

This is my first sketch testing expressions, movement, line direction...

I think in some devils...:rolleyes:

In trhut: I need to sleep. :shrug:

05 May 2004, 03:48 AM
HELL!!! this post are corrupted in the base!!!:cry:

05 May 2004, 01:05 AM
Hei dudes, I will repost all teh images and comments. This is necessary because I have posted the images in a incorrect form, and my friends slash and vinicius menezes are help-me with the correct form instructions.

Thanks guys for the inestimable tips.

I will repost inclusive the concepts and argument.

Actually, I'm working in the hell cave.

05 May 2004, 01:47 AM (

This is the first sketch of a T.E.M.P.L.A.R. project. This concept is a draw of the head of a person inspirated in a Knigth Templar, a hole knight. Your mission and propose is hunt and aniquilate devils. The T.E.M.P.L.A.R project is a bio-machine compose with mechanical and eletro-eletronic systems associated to special and unique human bio-systems like the heart, the vertebral collumn, the hands , the foots and the face, the nervous system and the brain. This parts are essencial, the machines not can copy or imitate your power, expression and enginnering. This parts caracterizes a human person and possibilite to machine a interaction whit the cosmic energy and superior and invisible light of the Lord [GOD], your fountain of powerful energy. This project isn't associated to any church or pseudo-esoteric school. Your fundament is a concept of the Knights TEMPLAR, your cruzades in reality are a unending combat to the devils, the personal devils, the adversaries of the real propose of this machine, the aprimorate and lapidate of the original system.
well, the cruzade iniciate! at the combat!

05 May 2004, 03:02 AM (

This image is a studie of the brain system.The [brain + heart]is a master system of management of information at the TEMPLAR project. The information data provides of the periferical senses - like the vision system, audition and scent - and the superior and most accurate, subtle senses like the paranormal audition, the wake up vision in the Astral World (the oniric space, the land of angels and devils) and the awesome intelligence, consience of the emotional-intuitive system ( a heart component in the intelligence).

05 May 2004, 03:15 AM (

Detail of the principal conector in the brain. The system includes the especial connect to the Pineal glandula, responses to the superior illuminate of the Secret Knowledge of the knight TEMPLAR.

05 May 2004, 03:23 AM (

This drawbook are manufactured by myself, specially to this project. Contains reciclated paper (journal), Kraft paper, Translucid paper and white paper.

This image is extreme out of focus...sorry. :(

05 May 2004, 03:36 AM (

Hei guys, although the T.E.M.P.L.A.R. bio-system are programed to be a superior lifeform, with superior conscience and sense of honor, justice and grace... the METHOD used for the combat at devils are violent and without pain... decapitations are a good and effective system of aniquilation...

05 May 2004, 02:54 PM (

only some studies of human anatomy for compose the Templar.

"The LORD is upright;
he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him."

05 May 2004, 03:15 PM (

In this sketch I determinate not uses the tradicional Templar Cross or the Christ Cross for the symbol of the project. I rate this immediate reference like a very comum idea.

05 May 2004, 04:19 PM (

just the studies in the drawbook.

05 May 2004, 04:22 PM (

It is the first color test, in the first sketch of the Templar.

05 May 2004, 04:28 PM (

This is my first experiment in terms of expression, compose, line direction... I think in some devils to combat...

05 May 2004, 05:11 PM
Nicely done.
I think you already got a good pose for the character on the upper part of his body.
I'm not sure if the lower part is perfect yet. but i cannto tell without a background the char is standing on.
keep it up :)
I'm looking forward to see a are drawing one right?

05 May 2004, 03:00 AM
Thanks OrcOYoyo, your comments are substancial.

Yes, I have a idea for the background. The first idea is a "moment of extase" in a very darkness ambient, the hell cave. In the cave, some evils ( a especific kind, evils of luxury - the original pecado) torments the TEMPLAR...

But her pray and force is Superior; your pray is a hardwork, is a emotive and powerfull is iluminated.

Your heart is lights on, and her sintony of the invisible light of the Lord is absolute. The enemy - your tentations, the personal evil of a authentic knight Templar, can not support your illuminated force and sustain.

The evils are a biomachine form... mechanical creatures, are no feeling in your heart, but the miserable taste of the infected and corrupted sex, abnormal and bizarres forms of the carnal passion... the perfect combination of the flash... and machine...

Yes, the lower part of the sketch are unterminated... thanks for the precious tips!! :thumbsup:

Well, at work!

Force man!

"The LORD is upright;
he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him."

05 May 2004, 03:08 AM (

This is my second color test. The colors will construct a psicological atmosphere of the emotional scene... this is a first test of color palletes...
I have used the mouse like the natural paint techinic..., mixing the colors, etc.

05 May 2004, 11:19 AM (

The ablase Heart is a form that the TEMPLAR uses for reinvigorate your force, faith and vital energy, at the difficult moments in the Secret Cruzade.
The heart system is a complex biosystem. It is projected whit biocomponents, fluids and artificial connectors and sensors that recognize the pray and pure feeling changing this superior posture at the combat in absolute and radical action - the aniquilation of the wicked evils.

"How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night."

05 May 2004, 08:30 PM (

This image - paint of hands - ilustrates the process of colloring.
The mixing of colors try simullate the oil technique. The mouse interface is a problem... but is not impossible...

"My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken."

05 May 2004, 08:36 PM (

The hands are colored. I think in your expression, the Templar makes, in the scene, a petition, a pray to Lord.
Your heart signs the moment of glory, all the system are illuminated... the knight is ready for the combat...

05 May 2004, 12:35 PM (

In the hell cave, "moment of extase" is a instant, a "key" moment of combat - the internal and psicological combat - of the Knight TEMPLAR.

This vision, for the mahine, correspond to Astral World, the oniric world (land of dreams). the subtle place of emotions. The most kind of machines not can see this world, because not onw the human parts that provides this sensibility. And who can't see the evils, can't combat!

05 May 2004, 12:46 PM (

just more details in the infernal cave.

05 May 2004, 12:57 PM (

the mechanical creatures are inconscient. Sleep in a deep cave, the hell cave. This concept is for the especific evils of luxury, and the TEMPLAR machine works whit the hole sacrament of the chastity.
This Evils will are decapited...

05 May 2004, 01:07 PM (

Other pose. The facial expression of this creatures aren't correct... the exact expression is a pain, a pain of the insaciable want of carnal pleasure, the false feeling of the flash...
Mechanical creatures sustain your systems abrsorbing the vital energy of the other machines...

05 May 2004, 01:26 PM

I like the idea of the BotDemon...!
The pose of your character is very good, maybe you could re-inforce it, more sensual, more avidity (?..english grrrrr), maybe they could be like snakes crawling on the ground, because of the mix of pain and desire...hum, anyway.:applause:
Good job !

05 May 2004, 02:15 PM

I think with you really understand the spirit...

the snakes... yeah! great symbology... crawling animals... the devils in more pain, growling, crawling... Great!:bounce:

And the TEMPLAR in combat! A internal combat...

I will work in this idea! Thanks very much for your comments!

Obs. My english is (grgrgrgrrrrr) hehehe,
but I'm understanding perfect your comments!:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 03:16 PM (

I'm working in some details in the hell cave...
For the light effect in the heart I will test analogic textures whit oil fluids...
at work!

"My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken."

05 May 2004, 03:45 PM
Ok, I'm going to Carazinho.

Today, in the night, I will work whit "crawling devils..."

My great friend Márcio Saul suggest a scene, whit the templar prosted, revere, venerate the Divin Mother, the femme part of the Lord... Its a illuminate idea, I can see the expression of the knight...

Well, the road wait me... :wavey:

05 May 2004, 07:51 PM
hei dudes!

In carazinho I and my great ULBRA partners - Felipe Stanque, Paulo Garcia and Beto Bordin - make various experiments with fluids, oils, terebentine, nanquim, water... the effects are very very interesting... I will post the images.

My intent is obtain a image for the "ablase heart" effect. This energy is very fluid, natural... and I can't uses digital effects to make this.

I feel satisfied with the results... The ablase Heart of the Templar is the center point of this compose!

Thanks my friends for the inestimable help with the "making off register", the quimical experiments and suport. And especially thanks to Beto, for transformation the Nissin Miojo in a wonderful dinner with tomatoes, carrots, bovinus flesh and other increments...

05 May 2004, 08:15 PM
Looking good..
very goood.

05 May 2004, 08:31 PM
Thanks Ville... Your job is great too... I keep my eyes in your progress...!!!:thumbsup:

Abração cara!
05 May 2004, 04:16 AM
Hello man. I'm Back in here!!!
I'll repost all the stuffs, and some new that i'm working on. The job is really great, i hope that tomorrow you bring to us on CAL some news on your works.


05 May 2004, 06:19 AM
I like it, I think it might help if you find an area to focus on that is not so aligned with the image. Things in nature are very akward we tend to ignore it but shapes and alignment is usually messy.

05 May 2004, 10:49 AM

welcome man! I feel your absence... you are lose your posts, right? :surprised

Today, in the CAL I demonstrate the job with the fluids...


Thanks for your comment. I hope understand all your phrase... my english is very basic...

but, yes, the might help is more natural, chaotic... and the experiments whit fluids really can help in this job...:thumbsup:

today, in the night, I will post the images of the fluids experiments... and the making off.

At Work!!!

05 May 2004, 02:49 AM (

This video caps ilustrates step by step the process that I use for obtain analogic spekles at paper, to posterior uses in the ABLASE HEART of TEMPLAR.
The water and oils (red and blue - complementar colors) creates waves and chaos patterns very natural and energetic.

05 May 2004, 03:05 AM (

The first press results in a very "regular" patterns... I'll remake.

05 May 2004, 03:13 AM (

The Power of the Heart in the TEMPLAR associate a human flesh aspect to light energy of the machine. Then, the wonderful light of the human faith illumines the machine, transforming her conscience in a kind of insane and awesome power to aniquilate the devils.

05 May 2004, 03:28 AM
Hei guys...

I need to sleep... :hmm:

The paint of the cave continues...


05 May 2004, 06:21 AM
Great I like how the fluids look, I can't wait to see how you will use them.

05 May 2004, 03:10 PM
Pretty damn cool!
Waiting to see it in use...

05 May 2004, 03:21 PM
Nice to see you making them droplets like that :D

Are you going to use them for the background only? Since if this would 3D you could use them as any surfaces like that, but in 2D you cant adjust and mold the shape that easily to any surface.

I'll be waiting for the result of this.

05 May 2004, 04:29 PM
That's not entirely true, you can use displacement maps to mold the texture to any surface you like. It's also easier then using 3d.

05 May 2004, 05:46 PM
TTs nice u are so kool haha i like it ^ ^ .

05 May 2004, 02:55 AM (

I'm juxt working with the devils in the cave...

05 May 2004, 12:40 PM
Lagerea, Ville, Falcor and Craymels:

Thanks for all the comments, are very important.


I'm working with the "fluid press" in layers and combines it with the background rocks in the cave... soon I'll post the first tests... I'm lapidating the image...


Yeah, I'm uses the textures in planar mode, but I'll can use this logic process to make superficial textures in 2D. In reallity, I did some tests in the cave... blharg! amateur results...

my conclusion is: the effects, digital or analogic, must be used with conceptual proposes... and the Effect never is more important that the Emotion in a picture. Caution in uses...

Then, thanks for all!!!

At WORK!!! :thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 04:37 PM (

The first tests of color in evil bots.

The aspect of the flash is deadly, the pain... the putrefy aspect of luxury is the objective in this color test.

05 May 2004, 05:46 AM (

Deadly aspect of flesh is relative easy to color... but the mechanical parts no.
In this image I will try color the mechanical components with the putrefy aspect of the visceral colors of deadly flesh, with blues, magentas and reds...

Well, I'm pursue...

05 May 2004, 03:23 PM (

I dont now... whit eye is more appropriated for the luxury evil?

05 May 2004, 03:49 AM
I'm working with corns. Mountais Ram corns.

The evil bots are a representation of our sexual nightmares, the putrefy and egoistic sex. Curved corns atributtes the Animal aspect to her...

Soon I'l post the sketches.

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

Que massa cara. Tu se formou onde?

Eu nunca tinha testado o efeito "fluid press", recomendo que tu faça a experiência, pois é muito legal... Gosto muito de buscar formas e processos originais para obter efeitos...

A fotografia também é um grande meio para essas pesquisas.

Bom, vou nessa que o tempo urge.

Força cara!

05 May 2004, 11:51 PM
Really liked your initial concept sketches, there is almost a very sort of old school Michaelangelo feel to them, if you know what i mean. The theme then itself is very suitble especially for the look you seem to be going for with your designs.

The final sketch of the woman/beast with the horns is very reminicent of some concept work that i have seen on a game called PRIMAL. One of the demon transformation designs for the main characters is similar.

Excellent work mate, definately want to see more.:thumbsup: :D

05 May 2004, 11:56 PM
Man, this's looking amazing!!
Loved the fluid efect on the light!!
U were right, it did turned out great!!

05 May 2004, 12:58 AM
thanks guys for the comments.

--- sketchfiend ---

thanks dude, your comments are very cool and important too. Certainly I'll search this game graphics (PRIMAL) to judge if my work is really very comum or similar...

... the evil image isn't a incomum image...:shrug:

You dont can post to me a image of this game?

but, for all, THANKS!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

--- Daniel ---

PaRaBéNs pelo excelente trabalho!!!

Dude, congratulations for your progress, awesome!!! :bowdown:

and thanks for all!


05 May 2004, 02:32 AM
Heres a couple of images that ive found:

But thats kinda what i meant, by the look of the character with the horns. Anyway, i look forward to your next update.:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 08:32 AM
Thanks for the feedback :)
I see you decided to only draw the upper part of the character ;)
But it's looking very good. i like this light blood effect coming out his body.
realy cool style.
i think the shadow he drops onto the wall doesn't fit the lighting of his body...can it be?

05 May 2004, 10:19 AM
skethfiend ---

thanks!!! the images not open here, but I search in google...

its, ok!I had see the corns... no problem, I think..

thanks a lot for the contribuition!

OrcOYoyo ---

I'm not decides uses only the upper part of the character... In reality, I stil revise the draw, but you observations aren't forget!!!

Well, about the drops... I dont now, the drops are not onto the wall, but float in space, like a hologram light... I think in more intense lights to better perceive the "visceral light" in the cave... I think that layer whit lines of cave appears into the light effect, making this perception problem.


really your comment is pertinent. I will work in this!

THANKS guys! The TEMPLAR cruzade will continues!

05 May 2004, 03:28 PM
amazing, just amazing, i love the way you create surfaces by the subtle shadowing and the textures.
the concept is great and i would love to see a little more of the evilbots.

Thank you


05 May 2004, 04:23 PM

thanks dude for your reply.

I'm working in the evilbots... I'll post the news and studies, in more detail.

This time, I'm not working in this because the several occupation in my academic studies...:cry:

but, I will post the new drawings and paint of evils, especially to you. Thanks a lot for your incentive!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 11:16 AM
There is something really like the dante univers.
Something macabre and devilish.
I am impatient to see the composition in general.

05 May 2004, 12:02 PM
Great stuff. love the style of painting. One of the sickliest looking flesh tones I've seen. Nice

05 May 2004, 12:27 PM
This is really starting to look awesome....u had a cool concept and good ideas for start and now it seems too florish into good looking work...
Almost surreel..and that is what make it cool in my pic`s there makes u wonder....

05 May 2004, 02:28 PM
thanks guys for all comments, your feedbak its really important.

Russo - you feel the spirit of evilbots... :rolleyes:

Ridick - You right, Dante is a reference to me; Soon I'll post the final compose scheme... wait a bit of time...:shrug:

cuppacam - thanks man, the putrefy flesh color is fundamental to this caracters... I had make a lot of color tests... :thumbsup:

vincent_v - thanks, is my objective with this paint create a "machineflash" simbolic image of the our infernal reality, and it isn't a " fool subject"... I feel specially attract for simbolic images... and the "fool and bizarre conduct sexual energy" in our "modern times" are a interesting theme to reflect...

thanks a lot.

Force for all and

Hi londero,

Thanks for your comments on my thread. I have to say i like your colors an the mood of your scene and WIPs. usually that is one of the heaviest things during the process. Maybe you should use some colour perspective and line perspective for the stronger sense of space. Brighter and a bit stronger colors on the surfaces which are closer to the viewpoint and more detailed areas around them. If you put some details in the focus you can drive the viewer's eyes. now if i look at the image above i have no primer contact points. What is the most imortant on the image? Eyes? Hands? Movements or suffering expressions? If you ask these things from yourself you can decide what is your guideline here and you can depict that well. (just as an important line in a poem. )
The horn studies you made are really impressive I had some similar studies and i know how difficult is to draw them....:bowdown:
Perhaps a few colder colors on mechanical parts could be fine for them.
BTW, excellent work and fine progress!! Keep it upppppp mate:buttrock:

05 May 2004, 02:35 AM
Great stuff my friend, just great!
Wanna see it all together!

05 May 2004, 10:09 AM
WoooOoOo....I like as you're working the character....................It seems like some oil...
......I like it very much.

....please update for the others...!!!!!!!!!

Great work mister !

05 May 2004, 11:32 AM
I really like your style...really fluid.

Great character studies and love the light in the wide

Can't really say much more at this stage other than great work...

I look forward to the next installment:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 01:12 AM
thanks for all comments.

Tremoside ::::

You are right about the sense of space. But I really still not work this in the compose... I think in uses the tonal perspective and brushes like "natural blur effect", but preserving the natural aspect of a real paint.
You tips are substancial, you are correct! I'm working individually in evilbots, the final image will group the image and define the eye direction... but I have a lot of points with some important details and signs and this is not easy mission, at lest to me...
above all, you comment is very, very important. Thanks a lot!:thumbsup:

Ville ::::

soon, my friend, soon!!!:rolleyes:

goli ::::

thanks man, the oil paint aspect is a objective to me in this compose! :thumbsup:

Ok dude, I also keep my eyes in your awesome job! :thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 05:00 PM
Hi Londero!

Thanks for your comments on my entry. It's turning out really nice! I like your choice of colors and your stuff reminds of ancient Egipitian art.

The one thing I woud be cautious of is the (over)use of detail on the background behind the characters. It's important to treat whatever is further away from your 'camera' / POV with less detail, brightness, contrast and sharpness than whatever is on the foreground. That should add more depth to your whole scene. That may be why it's reminding me of Egiptian stuff, because it's looking a little flat. The characters could stand out more against the background...

Unless that's what you're going for, in that case, disregard what I said. Flat can be very nice. Klimt for instance...

------- translation------

esta' ficando bem legal! Gosto muito da sua ecolha das cores. As poses me lembram um pouco de arte egipicia.

Uma coisa que eu chamo atencao e' para o uso de detalhe no fundo atras dos personagens. E' importante que o fundo de pano seja tratado com menos detalhe, menos brilho, menos contaste e menos foco, para passar a ilusao de profundidade na cena. Talvez seja por isso que pareca com arte egipicia, por que o desenho esta um pouco sem profundidade / perspectiva...

A nao ser que e' isso que voce queira... nese caso, esquece o que eu falei... Klimt e' muito bom com esse tipo de estilo.

(desculpa o portugues enferrujado, sem contar os erros gramaticos!)

05 May 2004, 05:47 PM
bruno ----

meu inglês é muito superficial, vejo que tu entende português!

cara, tu tens razão, está totalmente certo a respeito da profundidade. Mas eu estou trabalhando em setores, com os demônios, com o background, e resolvi dar um tempo no templário para justamente, ao ver a obra como um todo, decidir sobre a iluminação e sobre a profundidade.

A princÃ_pio, é meu objetivo que ela fique tridimensional. Estou trabalhando assim para que ao iluminar a cena final as sombras não sejam apenas áreas escuras, mas com detalhes...

bom, cara, valeu aÃ_ pelo post, vi teu site, muito legal. Qual é a tua nacionalidade?

a resume in english:

1. you are right;
2. I'm working in parts;
3. I'll decides how the background appears in the future;
4. Is my objectivee light the scene and deffine better the sense of perspective;
5.Thanks a LOT for the post!!!

valeu, abração aÃ_

05 May 2004, 10:22 AM
Hi londero,

Thanks for the reply. Yes...I see how your workflow is planned and you know what you want to do. I have to say your latest updates are really impressive....keep it up!!! Let the daemons come to alive:buttrock:

05 May 2004, 03:33 PM
Cool`ish :)

06 June 2004, 02:41 AM
Hi Londero,

One thing I forgot to mention is that all your charcaters have strong facial expression...really nice scary look on those demons' faces!

to answer your question, I was born and raised in Brazil, but I've been living in the cold windy city of Chicago for quite a while.

The site you saw is pretty old, it's my work from college. I haven't updated that thing in almost 2 years...

Maybe I should, since the machine flesh contest, the site has been getting lots of hits and I don't want anyone getting the wrong impression...

I sure hope I've gotten better since then ;)

see you,

06 June 2004, 11:34 PM
Hello :p

Today I dedicate a bit of time to make new analogic experiments. I'm working in a idea: the final aspect of the illustration appear like the old and crackeled fresco paint, like the old oil paint expose at interperies and corrupted for the time...

I had observate original paints and actually I find in my mind a techinique to represent this with efficience and some poetry...


today I will post news.

force for all.:thumbsup:

Nice work companeiro, gogogogogo..:thumbsup:
06 June 2004, 02:27 AM
This sure gonna RULE!!!! Loking at old paintings today i'd see that your work gonna be awasome with cracks, giving an atmosphere of analogic paint.

I'm back in here, and really anxious to see that!!!!
Go for it Man!!!!!!

06 June 2004, 01:00 PM (

In wood, the base is very solid and the effect is very subtle.

06 June 2004, 01:08 PM (

In kraft paper the effect is much more clear, but the fibers of paper knead... its a mischance.

06 June 2004, 04:38 PM (

Here is the result of a process of selection, adjust and position a collection of analogic crackles in the original paint. I think with the aspect of old paint can help in the psicological mean of the picture.

06 June 2004, 06:36 PM

06 June 2004, 06:42 PM
Hola londero
I've been following your Wip for some time now and I m truly impressed by your usage of real life painted material and colour shemes. Nothing I can give you a constructive critic on with my low and humble skills, besides that I really like how it comes along and developes.

I can already imagine this piece in a huge format hanging on a wall inside some kind of mechanized gothic - style cathedral - preserved since ages.
keep it up


06 June 2004, 06:59 PM
Love the way you use real stuff combined with computer arts :thumbsup:

I bet all the 3D artists who have seen your works are starting to crumble down paper and paints and stuff.

These would work so well as a texture over 3D artwork.

You have truly given me some very good ideas. Too bad i dont use regular medium that much, but seems like i have to use that technique somehow :drool:

06 June 2004, 07:34 PM (

In this last evilbot, I think in more "mad animal aspect". Its a fast rough, but in my mind I have a image that combines pain, crazy and a surreal aspect of one luxury daemon.

Hi londero, beautiful work here! I like the medieval theme very much, the whole concept of the knights templar is something I've always found very fascinating. Particularly I like the image you've made with the head thrown back - The text over it makes it like a book cover and it's nice to see the image given a context. Maybe some detail in the background would be nice! Great stuff, keep it going!
Thanks very much for the kind reply too!

Your painting abilities are excellent!
I've reading your thread and it looks you are so inspired about the story behind!

En mi caso, me inspiro poco en español, mucho menos en inglés...:cry:
qué programa estás usando?

The "ablaze heart" is unbelievable! awesome! I wondered how could you achieve it digitally, but I read it's analogic? no matter, it's great!

about the evil woman: really scares!! more than gothic, so tenebrous, so dim..:surprised

Just more steps of paint. This daemon is a unique with iris and ocular globes in eyes.

I'm working with more analogic experiments and fluids to obtain images of fluids like smoke and atmosphere effects... bubbles of pain... and squirts of affliction an tribulations...


...For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
For it is written:
"I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."
Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?...

hello Londero ! Paint.. paint.. paint..always a good work my dear companeiro....just a little detail, i wonder if the eyes couldn't be a little bit more visibles...but maybe you haven't finished it...a suggest : they could hide in the shadow of orbites, that could give a focus to look at this area and in the dark soul of the demon..see the hidden eyes.....brrrrrr

You keep the right way !



06 June 2004, 10:29 PM
I've been keeping an eye on developments and the work you are creating is truly amazing. You have a really great painting style and brush strokes and use of lighting along with those textures on the canvas really give the piece energy and emotion.

Good luck with completion and i look forward to seeing the end result.:bowdown: :thumbsup:

Oigaletê Indiada Chucra :)

Poesia gaúcha para agradecer a homenagem por mais de bagual:

Esta poesia gaúcha tem a ver com o espÃ_rito TEMPLAR,
E seu tÃ_tulo (DESAFIO) tem a ver com o contest:

DESAFIO ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Há um potro dentro de mim, pedindo cancha.

Sinto-lhe o bater do coração inquieto
como um tambor a rufar em véspera de peleia braba.

No meu olhar o seu olhar de fogo se confunde
na ânsia de devassar a vastidão de todos os caminhos
que os seus cascos de bronze e asas não pisaram.

Potro de sangue ancestral,
telúrico em seu Ã_mpeto selvagem,
maior porque contido no seu lance
como um cartucho que sente o gatilho pronto para o tiro.

Tudo o que fica além de meu passo de nômade prisioneiro,
tudo o que não alcança o meu braço de músculos dormidos,
tudo o que meu olhar não pressente na distância
- isso tudo a chamá-lo,
tudo a chamá-lo
como um toque de cincerro no silêncio da noite.

Seus ouvidos de animal selvagem
são sensÃ_veis ao apelo da distância,
ao apelo da noite,
ao grito dos que rompem cancelas e aramados
para abrir a golpes de audácia o seu caminho de aventuras.

Há um potro dentro de mim, pedindo cancha...

No laço de chegada,
que fica sempre além,
e ainda mais além,
e sol não se põe nunca,
para vestir de ouro os que tiveram pata
para engolir todo o estirão da raia
que é um desafio de léguas pela frente.

Mas como custa arrebentar o laço

The madness of luxury acts
Is a feeling so comum in our lives
that we not perceives the ghastly taste
and the abnormal conduct of our lives
and living
like pseudo-human machines
ignoring our poor condition...
mechanical creatures...

the closeups are beautiful, such nice textures - it really feels like paint! Excellent work. Maybe some addition to the background?

06 June 2004, 05:57 PM

Excuse me for my english...:p ....:)

06 June 2004, 03:28 AM
I agree the second one looks much better has some nicely defined details on the face and definately looks a lot more spookier with the eyes the way they are in that second image. Keep it up...i look forward to seeing more.:thumbsup: :D :beer:

Same expression!

06 June 2004, 10:09 PM
Realmente o segundo esta doentio, mas gosto bastante do primeiro tb, acho o primeiro mais morbido e o segundo mais insano!

06 June 2004, 09:12 AM

Dudes, soon I will post the new studies for the final compose to "moment of extase".

I'm actually concetrated in analise the bidimensional space in my picture, because I've directed this work to a concept that "old painting", and this connotate many elements like the crackes and geral atmosphere. In principle, I had working with a 3D cave (poor 3D...) and this, with the time, lost a bit the sense of a old paint,

But, to resolves this question, I decide make studies like the old masters, with mathematics and gold sections.

I'm back to work. Force! :wavey:

06 June 2004, 04:07 PM (

The golden Proportions studies. In this studies, I had new ideas... represent the picture "moment of exctase" like a old paint, and one devil scapes out of the paint. The spiral line conduct the observator eye in a interesting movement. With this modification, I have a lot of re-paints to make, but... at work!

06 June 2004, 05:11 PM
hheeh Just awessome!
I'm not at home, I'll post a reference of it monday or before.

06 June 2004, 06:06 PM
is always nice see people taking care of composition like this way.. :beer:

06 June 2004, 01:16 AM
thanks guys for the comments.

actually, I finishing my works in postgraduate studies....:cry: and I'm quasi ready to back to TEMPLAR mission!


at work!

Force for all.

06 June 2004, 03:56 AM
i like no eyes, gives a more evil feel to him. AHH!
this is awsome, like old school painting, but with modern ideas, its great

06 June 2004, 12:07 PM
Your style combines perfectly with the subject. true artists:arteest: always take count of the golden number.
Everything is sooo studied. I always wanted to say that I love your logo.

I can't wait to see them all together.

06 June 2004, 12:25 AM

Thanks for your words. I'm satisfied with the new compose and the PostGraduate work it's finished, then I'm back to TEMPLAR project.

Eupee :::

Yeah man, new ideas... but the theme... so antique with our existence in the earth... the combat of our daemons... Thanks!!!

LaurentiuBontea :::

Thanks guy, the logo means I will post in future!

ville and Russo :::

Valeu gurizada, conto com a opinião dos amigos aqui! abraços!


Now I'm in Carazinho City. At night, I'll paint.

I'm back to work now.

about the compose and general work, opinions always welcome!



06 June 2004, 05:49 PM
Great process pictures! you've done a LOT of stuff for this competition. It'll be nice to see you layer the fluids into your work, I'd love to see more and more and more layers of texture just built up insanely high!

Keep it going!

06 June 2004, 09:56 AM (

in Carazinho City I draw this pattern to make the frame of the art.

06 June 2004, 10:00 AM (

In general I'm not uses this process, to make my ilustrations (vetor lines), I prefer the "hand" draw, obvious. But the short time and the conditions in Carazinho city make mes decides for this techinique.

06 June 2004, 10:08 AM (

now in the photoshop the poor vector will transform in a old frame.

06 June 2004, 10:52 AM give me ideas...well...nono i'm not sure...i'll try..
great! that's very harmonic with your so beautifull job!
btw thx for your nice words on my...

06 June 2004, 12:55 PM
Fine compositing with the golden rulez!!!
Keep it up mate time is pushin!!!
You have to finish your well done artwork!!!
Bests to you!!!

06 June 2004, 03:50 PM (

I'm insatisfied with the size of the most important in picture - the TEMPLAR. Then, I had make new studies.

06 June 2004, 04:29 PM
E ai Rodrigo!
Raly cool the Frame!!
I liked the other composition better, though.
It's realy nothing alike, but there is a painting by Dali called "Giraffe on fire" where the actual giraffe is very small and U only notice it after a while.

Mudando de assunto. eu falei com o mecman e ele tb não sabe mta coisa de mapas. Asssim que eu der um jeito no meu PC (esse fim de semana) eu vou começar a estudar isso junto com ele, daí a gente te manda o que for conseguindo.
To loco pra ver meu personagem texturizado, hehehe.

06 June 2004, 04:38 PM
Cool composition...i really like the guy in the middle.
Good job...

06 June 2004, 04:47 PM (

more steps in paint.

"Del pecado de mi pueblo comen, y en su maldad levantan su alma.
Será el pueblo como el sacerdote; le castigaré por su conducta, y le pagaré conforme a sus obras.
Comerán, pero no se saciarán; fornicarán, mas no se multiplicarán, porque dejaron de servir a Jehová." Oseas, 4:10

06 June 2004, 06:27 PM
yeah I like the frame very much, very classic and well done,the red fire(?) looks great, no crtis by now..
