View Full Version : Scene : The BOMBERS

06 June 2004, 10:58 PM
hello hello,

A new pic realised with 3dstudio max, the last before the holidays :) . I try to have a style more brushy to define the most quickly as possible an action.

I hope u enjoy it.

omfg, perfect modeling and composition !!! could you please show us a wire ?

06 June 2004, 11:18 PM

06 June 2004, 11:38 PM

Just incredible... everything is GREAT

How did u do that motion blur in the cockpit keeping the rest fine???

06 June 2004, 11:44 PM
This is so incredibly cool!! What would it take for you to start cranking out some max tutorials?

06 June 2004, 12:12 AM
Man, your work blows me away everytime i see them Xavier.

Awsome designs. Absolutely love the giant mecha and the bombers. It would be great to actually see some bombs being dropped though. They look more like fighter planes more than bombers. And maybe some explosions on the ground, or some fire and smoke from the destruction the giant mecha made.

Still its an awsome piece of artwork.

thx for ur comment

Myce : that's true the design is more influence by the fighter plane. This plane is in fact a cheap bomber like the stuka with a short range of action and a small charge of destruction.

The mecha is called Mecha 262 class "BERLIN"

Hi! So, that's another high quality work. I realy like this kind of environnement, wich make me think about warbird dedicated magazines, with flight engagement above city in flame. The composition is effective, and the research for the design of ur mechas has very high quality.

However, i think u can upgrade some parts of ur work: according to me, there is too many smoke wich parazitizes the background, and create a shift between 3d made part and composited ones.

Good work Xavier!:thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 06:23 PM
Omg wonderful!
I love the composition of the scene.
Superb modelling, too.


06 June 2004, 06:28 PM
Great!!! very dramatic scene...

06 June 2004, 10:01 PM
you did it again ..
not only that the technical realisation awessome is ( as always with your work )
but the thematic and artistic design are really well rounded ..
some stuff from your web page are just to die for !!:scream: :buttrock:

06 June 2004, 10:17 PM
Thanks all for your greetings.

you did it again ..
it's my job also now. more easy to found the time. For this pic it's made for free but all the modelisation is really brushy. not really precise, only the feeling is important.

06 June 2004, 11:54 PM
Wow! This is a great image. I am no were close to be a critic so I will ask this from a curiosity standpoint. Is it from an artistic viewpoint, that is concerning the ships and missles, there is no black in the smoke trails?

06 June 2004, 12:26 PM
nice modeling and lighting.

06 June 2004, 03:35 PM
Love your works. 8x

06 June 2004, 05:22 PM
Only three stars? I think this awesome work is worth at least four if not five stars. Will there be any animation following? :bounce:

Xavier, your work is absolutely inspiring, keep it up. :buttrock:


06 June 2004, 05:23 PM
Woooooooooooooooo!!! Masterpiece!!!

06 June 2004, 07:46 PM
there is no black in the smoke trails?I checked some old photos from the pacific war and the smoke was sometime only white

Thx all for your posts ;)

06 June 2004, 08:10 AM
Hi man!

Really great composition, and you know how much I like mechas! Definitively, Xav', you're really one of the best artist of the forum.
J'avais vu cette image en allant sur ton site, avant qu'elle ne soit sur CG talk.
Tu m'en bouches sacrément un coin tu sais!

And, for all admirative guyz in the audience, just have a look on Xavier Marquis's website (ask him for the link!). On the gallery, you'll see that this guy produces one "high-level" pict by month!

Who can do faster and stronger than this?!

More than "dual processor" artist!

Encore un grand bravo, Xav!


06 June 2004, 08:59 AM
Very nice. The feeling of action in the scene is great. Nice job man. I really like their helmets. :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 10:34 AM
All I can say is that it is freaking awsome and why isn't this on the front page? I'd love to see an animated film of this. I think alot of people would love to see a movie like this. I love the animated films that are coming out, but they are all geared towards kids. Why can't they do a film like this? Anyway, keep it up!:thumbsup: Looks Great!


06 June 2004, 10:56 AM

give a great sense for the scale of the big robo

06 June 2004, 11:11 AM
cool design and always!!

06 June 2004, 11:24 AM
Wonderful picture with great modelling and effects :thumbsup:
I like the atmosphere in it

Congrats :applause:

06 June 2004, 03:02 PM
The mech is real cool, i like the gamma range you choose for the final shot.
The design of the plane seems to be a little unbalance, but the idea is great!
I think the lighting system all over is real cool, attention is captured by the mech, but
i think the pilot need some more light to have the right weight on the final picture.
Great composition, i love your style!

06 June 2004, 04:16 PM
i love this..its got the real old black and white footage look to a dog fight with a shake and everything...and the viewpoint is a masterstroke imho.
very impressed bud..

06 June 2004, 08:34 PM

I have the same feeling. It's my dream. For me the actual reference to dream is Cashern. I think this movie is a step in this direction

that sky captain film looks like it's got futuristic dog fights in it...not long to wait for it to be out either!! :)

love the work dood, only in my wildest dreams could i be capable of something like this, it's great to see what someone's imagination is capable of.

06 June 2004, 12:55 AM
That's cool!:thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 09:02 AM
super boulot !!
j aime beaucoup l atmosphere et le traitement final
ca meriterai d'evoluer vers un pilote de serie d animation

encore bravo

07 July 2004, 05:30 AM tj...... aussi impressionnantes tes illustrations :thumbsup:

J'aime la profondeur qu'il y a, l'ambiance, la dynamique bref.... on peut dire que j'aime illus :applause:
