View Full Version : Game Art Comp 8: Mr. Mint - Candyland/Original

06 June 2004, 05:40 PM
I'm going to take good old Mr. Mint from Candyland

and American McGee him up into a terrible mint-chopping cyborg machine monster.

I'll have a character sketch in a bit and maybe I'll get it done.

WHat a bad guy!

Dude you rock.

06 June 2004, 08:24 PM
Wow. I never saw this coming. I can't wait to see the concept on this.

06 June 2004, 01:16 AM
Haven't had much time or inspiration... but here's a head design.

Mr. Mint decided to keep his face not just for sentimental reasons, but as a reminder of his destroyed and distorted humanity.

WTF?!?!??!!? You sick bastard! I LOVE this contest! You never know what's gonna happen. Are you going to give his tentacle arms peppermint stripes?

06 June 2004, 01:21 AM
I was thinking he would spray paint peppermint stripes on his arms and legs. As for the sick bastard remark... you are correct.

06 June 2004, 01:53 AM
Mwah ha! Evil-cool! Will he have a body, too? I can't wait to see this! I HATE clowns, and anything pink, so it makes it SO evil. (shudder)

06 June 2004, 01:43 PM
How could you do that to Mr. Mint! He's so sweet and nice and MINTY! Damn you plucky!!!!!

Nice concept.

06 June 2004, 02:31 AM
lol i can picture that thing cracking skulls open with a candy cane :wip:

06 June 2004, 03:32 AM
Twisted and original concept. I like. Make one of those candyland game pieces for him to munch on.

06 June 2004, 02:37 AM
Okay, I took a break from failing at concepting this dude and started modeling me a head.

Do the crit thing, dudes and dudettes... ... ... ...dude.

06 June 2004, 02:19 AM
Here I go again on my own!
Goin' down the only road I've ever known!

I got a little carried away with the polygons... whoopsie... I could possibly make it, but more than likely I'll need to cut down... That's half of my tris right there. The body I have in mind is much much less complicated than the head... but it probably still won't be enough... I'm going to finish it and then worry about cutting down.

06 June 2004, 10:13 PM
You should probably cut down behind the eyepeice, and at the tubwes in the back, since they won't be seen as well. Also, the hat should probably come down a few polies. Still, it creeps me out to no end - I hate clowns.

06 June 2004, 07:33 AM
I got the polys a little more under control. I still need to cut more if I want legs... so yeah...

Tris: 2890

I'm just kinda winging it with the design now... perhaps a 3-armed behemoth was the wrong choice for me to try so low a polycount with...

06 June 2004, 04:37 PM
looks really great so far haha... very wierd, but awesome :D

07 July 2004, 08:06 AM
Okay... After many hours of insanity I think I finally have the triangles under control at 2998... While also completing the model... Woo! And unwrapping it! Woo x2! 2 days for texturing! Down to the Wire!

07 July 2004, 02:13 PM
Really, really, original idea mate! Looking forward to seeing those textures, it could make, or break this peice!!

07 July 2004, 06:31 AM
I hope I'm not breakin' it :)

I think I'll get it done... because I believe in miracles... ... ...and fairies.

07 July 2004, 08:38 PM
Okey dokey...

3000 tris

07 July 2004, 08:50 PM
That is quality mate! Really nice work - I'd say try and make him a little bit more dirty if you can (the buzzsaw and chainsaw are begging for some rust in an evil "I'm-gonna-give-you-tetanus-in-a-really-painful-way-that'll-require-a-jab" sort of way :D). Of course, the finishing line for the competition is quickly approaching - if you don't have time or can't be arsed, it won't matter too much - it looks so goood! :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 09:32 PM
Lookin' good, though it's still a bit too clean for my liking...

Oh yes. Definitely. Unfortunately time expired... so it was texture everything with a minimum of filth, or only texture part of it. There is much more detail I would like to add, and I probably will in the near future.

07 July 2004, 06:03 PM
Excellent... I would so love to see that. With some more variation to the texture I think this'd be one amazing model.
