View Full Version : character : "troopers" Mecha

06 June 2004, 12:39 PM

My new personal works realised with 3dsmax5, vray for rendering and displacement , shake 2.5 for compositing and painting.

Head design inspiring of nathan campbell (spinefinger )

This "illustration" defined for me a seek environment
(not style of the mecha) of my future short film in preparation.:)

I "kiff" your environement it's absolutely amazing. Realist and not realistic in the same time.. i like that. !!!

keep it up

06 June 2004, 01:15 PM
amazing image! FRONT PAGE!!

06 June 2004, 01:31 PM
Just PERFECT!!! :applause: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:


06 June 2004, 01:50 PM
Very Very nice work and Texturing =)

06 June 2004, 02:37 PM
Good work! Very mysterious place,The design is very beautiful!:)

06 June 2004, 03:01 PM
SUPERB texturing and modelling.... really very very good indeed.

06 June 2004, 03:14 PM
absolutely fantastic work!

love the textures & colors. very nice mood.
would like to see this thing animated!


06 June 2004, 03:16 PM
thanks all,
I ml happy to see that you like environement in order to continue my short film.

xavier : merci,
j'essaye effectivement d etre réaliste avec la lumière tout en étant un chouille illustratif.

06 June 2004, 03:21 PM
yeah, really great work...especially on the textures.
one thing that bothers me is the position of his left arm (good to see in the clay render) May be its just me..but i think it looks a bit strange
Did you use HDRI or just white skylight?

ps: 4 stars ;)

06 June 2004, 03:53 PM
awesome. i like materials so much.

06 June 2004, 04:16 PM
Great job, 10 points to the carter and it's texture, and 10 points too at the envoirment.



06 June 2004, 06:04 PM
Excellente ton image !!!!
Keep up the great work!

:eek: 3 stars only? am i dreaming? This work is awesome! I realy like the posing of ur character! It give him, despite of the fact that is only a mecha, a lot of life. He seems to be lost in a hostil environelent, wild jungle. He may try to find a way to get out! I realy enjoy the design of it. Exellent work, first rate!
:buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock:

06 June 2004, 09:05 PM
wow that is some cool stuff. i can only wish to see more of that enviroment.
And the characters wear and tear is just amazing.SWEET

Great job. Modeling, textures, and lighting are all excellent.

*PLUGGED* On the front page. Congrats!


06 June 2004, 09:17 PM
awesome image - but I think the texturing could be much stronger on the tree if the grain followed the flow of the forms rather than just vertically... but that probably means some UV texture mapping work.. yum..

06 June 2004, 09:22 PM
the armor is so cool, it looks like he has been in that jungle for a long time, and I love the light. I can only imagine what the animation would be like.

06 June 2004, 09:29 PM
Great work with the modeling, lighting, composition, and ESPECIALLY the texure work.

An overall amazing image... going into my inspiration folder! :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 09:32 PM
I love your trees and plants... The mech is also so well done. You've made one of my favorite cgtalk images! It inspires me so much. Well done! I wish I had something to criticize to help you, but all I can say is that I love it.

06 June 2004, 09:33 PM
Amazing stuff.

06 June 2004, 09:48 PM
Image link is dead - looks like you've exceeded your bandwidth.

06 June 2004, 09:48 PM
Yeah Dare !! impressive work !!
very nice model !

06 June 2004, 09:51 PM
wonderful textures..lovely mood setting


06 June 2004, 09:52 PM
Anyone up for hosting a mirrior of this? I'm very interested to see this piece.

06 June 2004, 10:02 PM
Hey Dare, c'est superbe comme d'hab.
Si je devais faire une critique je dirais que la texture du tronc marche tres bien a droite de l'image mais moins sur les branches transversales. Peut etre qu'avec un motif moins parfaitement vertical et un peu plus de displace ;) Le robot est terrible.
Well done DARE!!!!!


06 June 2004, 10:03 PM

06 June 2004, 10:18 PM
Very nice. However, the character completely blends in with the background. (A good test of your values in any medium is to squint at the image. If everything blends together, then there is not enough contrast between foreground and background.) I would seperate it with some rim-lighting. Nice job overall though! :)

06 June 2004, 10:23 PM
Looks AWESOME!! The environment is kickass, and I liked a lot the mechanical design...The rifle is really good (is this rifle that you mentioned on my thread?).

Keep it up!!



06 June 2004, 11:16 PM
yes..mon pote ca tue!!!!!! bravo;o)

06 June 2004, 02:28 AM
This is amazing! how long did you take to create this masterpiece? Frontpage!

06 June 2004, 06:59 AM

really ...well done friend!

We hope in some animations now !!!

06 June 2004, 08:07 AM
excellent textures! really cool how he's camoflauged into the environment. gr8 modelling.


06 June 2004, 08:24 AM
Very Very nice.

06 June 2004, 09:50 AM
I usually don´t bother to post comments, but this is just too much...
Please let me build you a temple where I can worship you and your art...
I´ll give u my wife for a tutorial on that image ;)

Anyway, (My Lord) is the tree covered by a singel texture? if so then it must be like 5x5k in size. Handpainted or photo?

5 stars from me...

06 June 2004, 10:15 AM
impressive as usual dare :thumbsup:

colors of the robot and the environment are maybe a bit too similar so the eye is a bit lost...
otherwise modeling, texturing, lighting and composition are very interesting !! :buttrock:

06 June 2004, 11:18 AM
amazing. great render.

06 June 2004, 11:21 AM

sly : merciiii ma caille

06 June 2004, 12:57 PM
I love !
especially the lighting...
of course great modeling/texturing and image composition.

06 June 2004, 12:59 PM

06 June 2004, 01:06 PM
the head reminds me of a spinefinger robot

very nice modelling job and I like the jungle environment too... nice atmosphere



06 June 2004, 01:23 PM
you should definetely change the lighting! the character is totaly lost in the jungle - there arent any contrast there (deep forests are full of shadows and lightened areas - you could use it wisely so you char pop out).

Another problem are trees and its texture, when I look on the lianas (dont know the right word in english - something like roots in the air:) the flow of the UVs is not correct - they are 90 degrees rotated so they look unnaturall.

This pic has potential but need some work.

Keep up the good work!

06 June 2004, 01:26 PM
Really really Nice!
Maybe effectively a little change for the lights could be interesting.

06 June 2004, 01:43 PM
he's like a scout soilder, very cool. Have to agree with the others about him blending a little too much with the back ground. Awesome picture. Maybe just requires a bit of of a value and intensity change somewhere on either the robot or the background. Othere than that, it's sweet.

06 June 2004, 02:23 PM
kick ass man...
i love your animation
its way a head:scream:

06 June 2004, 02:43 PM
ohhhh!GREAT! MARVELOUS! Mister DAREONER, your mecha is terribeule!!!

06 June 2004, 02:48 PM
Wow, I'm very impressed with the texture the model, and theenviornment sourounding th model. You should be pleasd with your accompishment at hand. I know I would be if I completed a work of art of that calibre. I will be there soon...................soon.

Awsome job :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 02:55 PM
Great image and brilliant design, and fantastic textures too!! it is a really expectacular design , congratulations :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 03:08 PM
:twisted: wow man that realy is awsome, the texture is amazing throughout


06 June 2004, 03:11 PM
awsome work! :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 03:24 PM
C'est marrant, le décors me rapel une certaine publicité........! ;)
En tous cas , super boulot!!. Design vraiment cohérent. Texture, lumière, tout fonctionne vraiment bien. Tout est vraiment bien pensé et ca se voit. Reste plus qua voir le court métrage, et quand on sait ce que tu as l'intention de faire, on a qune hate, c'est quil soit finis!!!
Keep the good work Dare

06 June 2004, 03:36 PM
awesome work, congrats

06 June 2004, 03:37 PM
Great Picture. Awesome textures! Thanks for my new wallpaper.

he's like a scout soilder - lestdog
I got the impression the robot is female looking.

06 June 2004, 04:00 PM
lisbor :"you should definetely change the lighting"
this lighting is my artistique choice, i precisely wanted this effect of correspondence between the foreground and background:)
so several people say the same thing, perhaps I will test another version.
thank you for your opinion.

Riddick: merci beaucoup riddick
mais toi aussi tu me dis de changer la colorimetrie du mecha:cry:
apres sur ce genre de subtilité faut voir les etalonnages d'écrans de chacun...ton avis compte pour moi en tous cas

krysalid : héhé, j 'attendais ton avis justement, toi qui est aussi fan que moi
de mecha, content que ca te plaise:beer:

olijosman: yééé man, thanks so much, i reallly like your artwork to.

sanjy : hehe, le pire c'est que j ai du tout refaire (en 3d) vu kon a rien recuperer, a part le layer de fond que j ai floutté.
j'espere que tu taffera sur mon court:bounce:

jalingo : good comments, it's a wife, man or children, maybe a dog:) they are these three vision which i try to design a androgyne robote, functional.

06 June 2004, 04:26 PM
This is great work! :bowdown:

06 June 2004, 04:31 PM
Very cool image... the intensity of the tree texture and lighting on the tree tends to make the eye lose focus on the char though... nice work!

06 June 2004, 04:41 PM
it's a wip render, so a test before my final image

on this version, the colors of mecha is different of background:)

Man thats really cool liked it a lot the textures are really nice like your style too, the scene feeling is great.

06 June 2004, 05:49 PM
Amazing work ! i'm really impressed by quality of this image .

Ca déchire ! ;)

06 June 2004, 05:50 PM
lighting looks much more artificial on that if it was shot in a studio with spots...
the mood is interesting though, but I kinda liked the first one more...

BUT that depends on your story, the atmosphere you seek for the whole movie etc... just speeking for an illustration, have no idea what kind of render you want to come up with in the short...I guess it was intentional
so I've got no worry about the final result in your short, I know you're still experimenting.

can't wait to see it !! :buttrock:

06 June 2004, 06:17 PM
rept0r : thanks so much, i do have time to tell you "congratulation" for your final image machineflex challenge, great stuff !

Falfa : merci beaucoup.

Spiff : la derniere image est en faite un test de light, moi je prefere mille fois ma premiere version a celle ci , il n ya pas plus de 15 minute de taff sur cette derniere, effectivement j'ai envie de donner un coté etouffant a tout ca, bref style conflit du vietnam (jungle, treillis vert, difficulté d'evoluer dans un milieu hostile ect...)
En tous cas le design va beaucoup evoluer au fur et a mesure du temps je pense.:D

06 June 2004, 06:18 PM
That is real skill on display in those images. :thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 07:40 PM
DAREONER, ASA dude great work. admirable, make sure to tell us when your done with the animation.. :thumbsup:

PS: I can't see you site only the splash page?

06 June 2004, 07:54 PM
hanzo : thanks to appreciate the futur of this short film ,i try to update when a finish the scenario:)

i don't understand why you don't see my website, so it's operational:sad:

06 June 2004, 07:59 PM
I think that the image is fantastic. But I do agree with others that have mentioned the bark direction on the tree. To me it is a glaring defect. The texture itself is amazing, but I recommend spending more time placing it. It kills the whole image for me, especially on the larger size.
On another note, the choice of lighting and compostion is quite nice.

06 June 2004, 08:21 PM
Kick ass! I'd like to see the short fillm.

06 June 2004, 08:28 PM

06 June 2004, 08:29 PM
Very good job:)

06 June 2004, 08:44 PM
dmcgrath : thanks for your analyse
for the uv, yes i know i have a problem on one branch, i try to finish a another version later.

06 June 2004, 09:35 PM
my favorite part are the red X's

06 June 2004, 10:16 PM
that looks great, but there are a few things bothering me. someone might have already said something about this, but the texture on the tree looks like its just cylindrically mapped onto it, i was noticing lines of the texture on the branches in front lining up with the branches in back, it looked a bit odd. another thing was the color scheme, while i do like it a lot, i think the character could stand out a bit more, it was kind of hard to see at first. other than that everything else is top notch.

06 June 2004, 10:39 PM
That robot rocks.

06 June 2004, 11:44 PM
you've aspired to inspire me :D
love the background and character intergration. its all very easy to look at and well done. congrats!

06 June 2004, 12:19 AM
Great work man! Keep it up...

I can almost hear all those jungle like sounds while looking at your picture..n1!

06 June 2004, 09:48 AM
very nice work DARE I am too late but I am here to congratulate another great work from you (t'as vu comme j'assure en anglais ma caille !:) )!!!!

de la vegetation, un robot, un snipe = DAREONER !!!:D

j'aime beaucoup la compo et la lumiere dans l'ensemble, j'ai juste un probleme sur le design de la tete (je distingue pas bien ces yeux (je comprend mieux avec la ref de Meiogirl ( vbmenu_register("postmenu_1411058", true); et également le tronc en haut à droite (je sens pas le volume du tronc c'est un peu plat)

but it's a grear job !!!

06 June 2004, 12:03 PM
Whoa! That looks great! 5 stars from me!

06 June 2004, 12:06 PM
Just a message to congratulate your stuff !
Amazing piece of art. i hope soon to see your movie.
i liked a lot the details renders you've done for your lighting tests.
i'm a fan.
Could you detail the number of textures, polycount, computer, time rendering ?
i hope you have not said yet, it would mean that i've not read entirely the topic :)

06 June 2004, 12:49 PM
great work man, awesome model, excelent enviroment but the composition is kinda hard for the eye, you need to do something with the background like, darken it a bit or something, so the mech can jump out a little.

06 June 2004, 01:17 PM
keep up the good work:thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 05:26 PM
très très beau, dare.
Je comprends pourquoi tu étais occupé!
la texture du mecha marche super bien, j'adore le style.
par contre je suis super étonné du thème: t'aime bien les mecha, les gun et les ambiances militaires, toi??
vivement le short.
encore bravo!:thumbsup:

06 June 2004, 06:26 PM
I just would like to say that this is very nice work.....the surfacing on your Mecha is superb, I myself am trying to capture that same dull painted metal surface, and it is not easy I know.....well done, and my opinion is not to change the enviroment, I think it fit's perfectly this charecter...

Mr Rino :nan mais c'est sur, la derniere image etait un wip :) je l ai mise pour montrer un autre style d ambiance.

mickatt: grave t assure en anglais comme un camion!
tu n'as pas tord sur le design, regarde sur ce shoot, on vois mieux les yeux
see you on msn

harnelbe : thanks very much

the number of textures is : 60
polycount : in low version 300 000
time rendering for a 2k: 3 h for tree and displace
10 mn for robot

xxLPxx :merci (on se connais?:) )
je pense que ceux qui me connaissent personnelement on du rigoler en voyant ton message, au lycée on m appellais "soldat canon" héhé yes effectivement je suis fan des mecha et grand gamin devant tout film de guerre (surtout sur le vietnam)
Effectivement ca ne m empeche pas de faire du cartoon, mon court metrage se base sur des design de mecha mais j'ai un fond tres onirique qui j'espere surprendra.

06 June 2004, 07:13 PM
very inspiring m8
well thought out and great modelling and texturing

06 June 2004, 08:07 PM
I'm a sucker for any picture with a jungle/tropical setting, so I'd love this one even without the (well-designed) mecha. It instantly made me think of Predator, if that movie had robots (although the acting was pretty robotic:D ). My only crit is the bamboo in the background, it doesn't really seem like it should be there. That's just my personal opinion (I'm probably wrong), they're not distracting or anything.

thanks for your support:)

rancor: for metal shaders......just one mapping in diffus canal, just 3 light, i work after with the compositing (level, multipass, crossover,sharpen ect...) so for a animation i use a classic layer of reflexion, the good tutorial of wiro is the same i think.

06 June 2004, 09:44 PM
test shading

06 June 2004, 11:35 PM
Great Job like your others pics.

Great atmosphere and color in the first image.

Just looked at this. I really like your model and the textures.

I am glad to see that it is gritty and not super clean. I am looking forward to seeing more.

06 June 2004, 07:55 AM
Awesome pic man, I really like the ambiance in the forest your light are amazing and the texture is very impressive.

06 June 2004, 09:16 AM

beautiful! , the texture of the trees look somehow facing the same direction, (parallel), but the mech and the textures look awesome

06 June 2004, 09:25 AM
Incredible! I love the concept of the mecha... The coposite is very well done. I think that this is definetly a front page material. Great work with the textures of the robot. They really get the feeling of paint over metal. :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 09:56 AM

why this image isn't in the oficial galerie !! keep the good work my friend !

I originally posted this work on the front page, but your server could'nt take the load, so we had to remove it. I will look into getting this image into the official gallery. IMO it deserves to be there. It might be until after SIGGRAPH before it gets put there as our admins are very busy with the show.

Have a great day!


07 July 2004, 05:48 PM
you rock dave !!

07 July 2004, 05:44 AM
excellent texturing, good modeling as well :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 03:14 PM
very nice and realistic "used" paintjob on the mecha.
I love it.

08 August 2004, 04:05 PM
thanks you very much dave!!

pixo: merci ptit gars d'avoir soulevé le propos
lithik and chima : thanks for your comment:)

08 August 2004, 03:17 PM
absolutely amazing work! 5 stars! (what techniques do you use to model so great like that? :D)

08 August 2004, 07:06 AM
I wonder why this one only got 3 stars.
I would give it 4.

08 August 2004, 11:32 AM
shaun : thanks, i work actualy for more update

Necksmasher:thanks man, the technique for modeling is "face to face", low poly and subdiv (with max)

superlayer : thanks for your support:beer:,
I do not know really how functions stars and vote on cgtalk, I think that they are people who vote... I think

08 August 2004, 09:31 AM
Hello DAREONER...........:wavey: ...I wanted to come in and give you two of these for an excellent piece of work.........:thumbsup: :thumbsup: ..................The entire scene is full of life and beauty with danger and excitement all in one.Very well done in both beauty and execution.........I look forward to any additions you have planned for this,it will be something to look forward to I am sure,all the best to you and your further creations........I like to believe my french is good,but deep down I know it is not to good.....:) ......SO I leave now with my final thought on this creation of yours........."Fantastique"..................:arteest:

08 August 2004, 10:09 AM
I love it, is the background real or 3d. I am assuming its a real bg and you just comped it behind the 3d character.

You're very talented.


08 August 2004, 12:56 PM

its another incredible work as usual....

08 August 2004, 01:18 PM
Awsome ! really great materials, they look very realistic.

respect !

08 August 2004, 04:13 PM
Great job dude. Love the design.

08 August 2004, 08:41 PM
beautiful work so far Dareoner... don't give up on it yet though.. a few small tweaks may push it into Legend!

perhaps where the paint is worn off you could show a little more scratches... perhaps with a bump and specularity map

08 August 2004, 11:49 PM
fantastic work. exceptional actually.

in my opinion tho i think a very feint depth of fied to blur out the environment just very slightly would improve it even more. just my opinion.

08 August 2004, 11:51 PM
after another look at the image i take that last comment back.
theres definitely enuff DOF in it already.

congrats on a flawless image.
