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

06-16-2004, 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.

06-17-2004, 08:24 PM
Wow. I never saw this coming. I can't wait to see the concept on this.

06-18-2004, 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?

06-18-2004, 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.

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)

06-18-2004, 01:43 PM
How could you do that to Mr. Mint! He's so sweet and nice and MINTY! Damn you plucky!!!!!

Nice concept.

lol i can picture that thing cracking skulls open with a candy cane :wip:

06-21-2004, 03:32 AM
Twisted and original concept. I like. Make one of those candyland game pieces for him to munch on.

06-26-2004, 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.

06-27-2004, 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.

06-27-2004, 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.

06-28-2004, 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...

06-28-2004, 04:37 PM
looks really great so far haha... very wierd, but awesome :D

07-02-2004, 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!

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

07-03-2004, 06:31 AM
I hope I'm not breakin' it :)

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

07-04-2004, 08:38 PM
Okey dokey...

3000 tris

07-04-2004, 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:

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.

07-10-2004, 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.
