Damn :( Thread deleted by the crash server

I hope u enjoy it and thx for the first answers on the ancient serveur :)

05 May 2004, 06:39 PM
this is almost perfect !
i love how you played with the volumes & the lights
just tweak the skin shading, but i read (before the crash) that you plan to do to this ...

i suggest, maybe you read it already, "In praise of shadow", a book by Junichiro Tanizaki. It deals about light & shadow aesthetic in the Japanese culture, a classic, but a f***ing exciting book :) (translated to french:hmm: )

05 May 2004, 10:53 AM
As usual ,very good my friend !
I like how the light works...

No luck with the data lost ! :hmm:

fraa: thanks for the suggestion.

05 May 2004, 09:46 AM
thx for ur comments :)

Yep, the data lost is a big f..... d... sh... But anyway, i work actually on a new pic.

05 May 2004, 10:51 AM
u done a good work on the hair
but the face~
a little gray

05 May 2004, 03:07 PM
terrific image.
i especially like the hair and those bone-like armor parts. the mood in general is also very good .
wonderful stuff as always from you.

05 May 2004, 03:16 PM
Unreal the style.

05 May 2004, 06:15 PM
beautiful image... just like your every other work.... love the hair and light.... very nice work....

05 May 2004, 01:30 AM
Very nice.. I like the coldness of the image. I have nothing to crit on. Well done

05 May 2004, 08:23 AM
luff it!

05 May 2004, 09:42 AM
hum, I've already seen those towers somewhere ... ;)
Really nice picture, my only comments is that the lightning could be more dramatic. Good Stuff ! :beer:

05 May 2004, 07:13 PM
bien joué Xav ;)

tu montres un wire ?, tu as fait ç_ avec quoi max ou maya ?, en tout cas, si c'est du max, j'adore les lumieres, tu pourrais donner l'emplacement ainsi que les styles de lopiotes utilisées ???

good job :applause:

05 May 2004, 08:31 PM
Excellent work!

Have you some cloth simulation on this picture? Do you use it in other pictures?

05 May 2004, 10:03 PM
Thx Shoaib :)

JB -> c tjs la meme histoire que certaines de mes pics mais quelques siecles avant.
La prochaine pic que je prepare est un element d'une de mes images aussi (landing force)

Tyio : t un fidele toi je te vois souvent quand je post ;) merci. J'ai pas de wire en stock par contre j'ai un fichier a rendre pour faire une petite video ou le personnage tourne sur lui meme. j'ai juste quelques images de rendues. des que j'ai le courage de finir je post ça
sinon j'ai fait une cage rapido sous maya. je modele le tout sous zbrush et je fais toute la compo sous max ainsi que le lighting. je me remets a max finallement je lui prefere son systeme de rendu. faut que je rattrape mon retard.. va falloir que je me matte du Dareoner

Frenkie : Not for this pic but normally i use reactor for that.

05 May 2004, 10:17 PM
Looks really awesome, is this going to be an animation at all or just the picture?

05 May 2004, 10:27 PM
Just a picture :/

In general I produce this kind of pic just to relax me after the work. An animation is too much big for a simple relax time.

05 May 2004, 01:28 AM
What program do you use?

05 May 2004, 02:27 AM
Looks Awesome anyway. I was wondering if for the armor pieces like the big ones on her legs, do you just model those and position them, or did you actualy attach them to her somehow like they would be in real life? And is there anyway I could see a wireframe of this picture? Would help me alot!

05 May 2004, 03:39 AM
yea wat soft is that done in?

05 May 2004, 04:20 AM
Vivid picture,nice feel and mood.:beer: :)

05 May 2004, 05:59 AM
cool work technically, but also great costume design, lighting, colour etc. Something u don't always see in digital work.

Really nice

05 May 2004, 07:15 AM
Thx :)

Jynks : it's done with maya just to create a low polygon very simple. Zbrush to sculpt in detail and 3d studio max to render and make the composition an lightning

05 May 2004, 07:58 AM
ben c'est normal, :bounce:

wé, veux la video moi :)

je saurai attendre le wire :scream:

congrats again for you man ;)

ps: the picture is for yourself or for you society ??

05 May 2004, 08:09 AM
myself :) .. a simple subject in the light of the moon to relax me.

Actually i prepare the final release for my professionnal arworks of this year. 8 pic in high res for shellshock nam 67 and some sketchs and designs.
I'm waiting the 30 th june to have the full rights.

05 May 2004, 08:19 AM
Very, very nice :thumbsup:

Any chance to see before/after wires (lowpoly wires and the wires after Zbrush)?

In any case, good work. Best of luck with your future endeavours :)

05 May 2004, 01:45 PM
Awesome! :)

05 May 2004, 02:07 PM
Nice work! :thumbsup:

The one thing I noticed about your work is all the textures look very realistic except for the faces. The faces look very much like a porcelain doll. It may be a style thing I dont know. I really like your work!

05 May 2004, 02:59 PM
Not much to say but your work is beautiful. :thumbsup:
really amazing.

05 May 2004, 04:19 PM
Hi Dude.

This one has much more density than your previous ones. Really cool. I think you should play a bit with contrast and lights, (just some photoshop stuff) to make it more "dramatic" as people said before;)
Anyway, very cool. ( Did i talked about the background characters? well, it's excellent, leaves too, grass also).

Brightness and contrast, Hue and saturation, is all you need now, just my opinion, that is to say the one of someone who's unable to make clean pictures!!


05 May 2004, 07:51 PM

I'm really happy to see ur comments.
E338, merci for ur greetings, this we specialy, I try a new version with a modification constrat light hue and saturation.

05 May 2004, 08:02 PM
Blimey that's rather lovely...

Like others have mentioned the skin is the only thing that looks a little odd to me.

5 stars from me!

05 May 2004, 08:28 PM
ah ., excellent work xavier, your work is truly inspiring to me, esepecially since you bring all those elements (not just 3d) to create a superb composition and great artwork , keep it coming , :)

05 May 2004, 08:31 PM
I still don't get the hands...but I like the pic.

Congrats on your second front page plug!:thumbsup:


05 May 2004, 08:34 PM
WHAO! XAV...I simply LOVE it!!! Great design and

BTW:Me is the same Xia from Sijun.

05 May 2004, 09:17 PM
FRONTPAGE ????!!!!!!!!!! damn...

I don't who choose to put me on the frontpage but thanx a lot :) it's an honor.

Xia -> :) u inspired me actually, I like ur design and ur treatment in color and lightning. a real perfect stuff and completely different than a lot of artist. Ur style rox with ur own touch.

05 May 2004, 09:25 PM
yeah bah ça claque franchement grave
gros respect moi je dis
j'adore le style l'ambiance enfin le tout :applause:

05 May 2004, 09:34 PM

I love your work. ("She's called Amsterdam" was great, I have to say it)
really amazing one. congratulations, Xavier :applause:

05 May 2004, 09:45 PM
no crits really ... awsome work
i'm most amazed by the leaves ...
congratiulations ...

05 May 2004, 10:08 PM
Gorgeous. I also like the fact that there are no trees rendered in the picture, but it seems like the warrior is in the midst of a lot of trees.

05 May 2004, 10:18 PM
tjs content de te voir ici... J'adore l'esprit du vent.
Belle réal, tu t'envole ^^

05 May 2004, 10:37 PM
You have like what, 5 or so pieces of work that have been plugged on Cgtalk? Sheesh.. I will be happy one day to get atleast one:D You are an excellent artist my friend. I hope to see even more from you in the future.:bounce:

05 May 2004, 10:45 PM
finally on front page =) Gj again...

05 May 2004, 10:46 PM
kickass work
very good every thing just great
ur work amazing:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 10:53 PM
it looks awesome, but i don't understand the pose. what is she doing? what are her hands supposed to be doing?

05 May 2004, 10:58 PM
nice atmosphere and modelling. Wow that Z-brush is something else, I really have to try it.

Two things that immediatly stand out are the poor sillouhette of the character and the grass at the bottom which looks like a stock Photoshop brush. I think if the character had a stronger pose, it would add a lot to this...I can't tell what she's supposed to be doing right she whistling...chewing on her nails? The eye gets lost trying to figure it out. It's just not clear.

anyways, cool work!

05 May 2004, 11:27 PM
Congratulations with your front page Xav!

05 May 2004, 11:36 PM

I had already replied before the crash server about this strange hand position. I was inspired by a photo of actress. Exactly in this kind of position and when I have seen this photo I had the same question than you. and I'm alway without response. That's also the case here.

Blackarts -> it's an honor to see ur comment on this thread. I'm admirator from ur concept artwork and specially this one artwork from Blackarts (

Erik -> U miss me at guerrilla ;) go baaaacckkk plz

05 May 2004, 12:13 AM
I'm still wondering if we can see a wireframe please!? Looks great and congrats on the front page.

05 May 2004, 12:28 AM
really nice to see that thsi picture got th eplace she deserve ..
front page !!!:applause: :buttrock: :applause:

05 May 2004, 02:07 AM
bravo Xav, toujours fidele a ton style ;) rien a dire, c'est du Xavier Marquis tout craché!

05 May 2004, 02:23 AM
She looks like the girl from battle angel alita (Gunmm)

05 May 2004, 02:46 AM
Reminds me of Tenchu.. Love the atmosphere...

05 May 2004, 02:56 AM
God I can't wait to get my copy of Zbrush 2 for my pipe- thankfully it finally shipped and should be here any day (those guys were backed up at pixologic for a month or so- no surprise given how awsome this program is) Totally awsome work!!:beer:

05 May 2004, 06:19 AM
Nice picture. I really like the cool colors that you used.

05 May 2004, 10:41 AM
I'll be back monday ;-) lol

I have seen enough of my bed for the coming time, feeling all better now!

05 May 2004, 10:59 AM
Far far the most beautiful render I've seen in MONTHS! (The last being a model of Me *hohoho!*) The passion. I could see the story unfold just by the look in her gaze. Is she facing the past or the future? Is she in danger or maybe wondered if she turn off the iron...we'll never know, but it rocks non-the-less brethuren!
Seriously, it's indeed a work of art. Bravo!:bowdown: :arteest: :bowdown:

05 May 2004, 11:44 AM
WOW! This is AWESOME! Really STUNNING WORK! You're the KING! :beer: Your work is really inspriring!

Just 2 questions:
1) Can you please post a wire?! :rolleyes:
2) *Spreek je geen Nederlands? Op je website staat dat je alleen Frans en Engels spreekt, terwijl je wel in Amsterdam woont! :wavey: * Do you speak Dutch?

05 May 2004, 11:57 AM
Really nice work. You can almost hear the wind....:thumbsup:

Cold but calm atmosphere

05 May 2004, 12:17 PM
A wonderful masterpiece! You really deserve the front page, man!
I love the grass effect. Very realistic. ;)

05 May 2004, 02:13 PM
Pascal Blanché -> merci bcp pour ton post ;)

Tesselated -> tenchu is completely awesome. I'm addicted

Nebcat -> "Far far the most beautiful render I've seen in MONTHS!" ... lol
"Is she facing the past or the future?" only you can give the response.

Dutchman -> no, i cant speach dutch sorry, just french or english. :/

05 May 2004, 02:14 PM
Go Go! Xav GO GO!!:bounce: :thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 04:19 PM
I think the only thing that ruins the picture is the fact that I don't know what she is doing [with her hands]. Other than that, excellent!

05 May 2004, 07:00 PM
Your'e always make the good art Xav :thumbsup:
hmm that Zbrush Soft. seems make better detail
once again you inspired me
anyway the hair is also made in Maya or the max?, just courious

keep 3d-ized for you

05 May 2004, 08:11 PM
EXCELLENT WORK!!!!! Amazing work, flawless image! :)

05 May 2004, 09:40 PM
Solidgraphi -> the hair create with Shag hair in Max

05 May 2004, 12:12 AM
Man, I just LOVE U're stuff!!

05 May 2004, 10:46 AM
As i already told you i love your Heroine ;)
The mood is intriguing, rich of tension but not too serious at the same time (i dig those dissacratory elements like the big X and the cartoonish decorations and proportions)

Nice style, keep it up !


05 May 2004, 12:56 PM
Awesome man :bowdown: , but I think it's a general rule of thumb especially with me; no scars on the females, and they always have to be hot bitches. :bounce:

Take that into consideration next time. :)

Think horny. :drool:

05 May 2004, 03:08 PM
Hej Xav, good to see you on the frontpage!(after all ;))

05 May 2004, 03:19 PM
Sweet dude :D
Yet again I get blowen away by you creation.

05 May 2004, 03:30 PM

05 May 2004, 07:22 PM

05 May 2004, 07:19 AM

Dark Soldier
05 May 2004, 08:39 AM
your work always blows me away , your one of my biggest influences apart from anime. your texture work is amazing , and your characters are well designed. Have u animated any of them?

05 May 2004, 12:04 PM
As usual, you're a killer, man!

Bin, oui, mon Xav', c'est très fort!... Je l'ai vu il y'a quelque jours sur ton site perso, mais je la découvre sur CG, donc j'en profite pour te congratuler!
J'ai pas de niouzes de Jeff, au fait... Il est dans la bédé, je crois?!

Bises _ ta famille!


:applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

05 May 2004, 04:18 PM
Sketchfiend -> the material for the armour and weapon is without reference. it's completely paint. Thx a lot for ur greetings :)

Fluxen -> he he ;) normally I redo two others 3D world, if i make no mistake

Dark soldier -> I have already animated one of my character by the past. Maybe in the futur if i can have a website with more memory I would like post the rest of my work. For the moment i must focus on my illustration artworks.

Flo -> merci beaucoup jeune loup, cela me fait tres plaisir de te lire. Oui le jeff est dans la bd et ça quiche. j'ai deja vu ces premiers roughs c a tomber.. mais vraiment je le reconnois point !

05 May 2004, 10:52 PM
bravo Xavier, encor une superbe illustre menée de main de maitre.
Je t'envi, parcque tu fais tout ce que j'ai pas le courage de faire et que j'aimerai faire. Pour tout ça, Bravo.

05 May 2004, 01:11 PM
I love the mood you've created in this! very ghostly and lonelsome! can almost feel the solace and tension! AND the detail on the armour is just fantastic! very nice touch! Look forward to seeing more!:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 07:43 PM

10 October 2004, 01:44 AM
Ya know, it's kinda funny when your surfing the net and run across a familiar picture. At first, I thought it was maybe on some other site, but after taking a second look, I remember now. I'm currently a student at the Art Institute of California, and in a photoshop class I had about three months back, a student turned in a piece that looked remarkably like the piece you have. (the same one). Everyone in class knew that it wasn't his and was taken from some where or another. He had a lo res version, no layers, not to mention, he told everyone he did it in Illustrator. Well, now I know where it came from. Just to let ya know, the student failed out of the school, and I think was arrested for possession.

The best part of the story is that the piece only got a B, (before the teacher threw it back in his face and failled him). Well, anyway, I like it a lot! We all knew that whoever did it had some tallent, and we all knew he didn't
