Ok here's mine

Avi File (
Ok it's a little fast

The cloth isn't final, but it was the first time i used a plugin like simcloth, so please excuse that piece of crap ;)

and excuse my bad english, too :D

02-05-2002, 02:46 PM
great job!
now i'm really considering of loosing this challenge :)

02-05-2002, 06:17 PM
I like it man! I think you already know that though ;)

02-06-2002, 03:10 AM
Ok here's another/newer Version, the body is too low detailed yet, but i will add some details tomorrow, have to consider how the design should look like, currently i have no idea for the Torso :(

ok now make me cry, and crit a lot ;)

02-06-2002, 04:30 AM
Really nice job there! Ithink you coudl better intograte the eye glasses, maybe vary the shape just slightly? With the straps on the chestpad, I think perhaps there should be some shoulder pads or at least movable parts there. About the chest maybe just some puffy fabric would work, it is always a good idea for there to be some lower detail parts (Pascal's wisdom not mine) so it does not appear busy. The cloth however could have a patern of micro armor or something for structure? Hope it helps more than hurts,

See You,

Ah noch einer von der Gemeinde.:D

Is this the FSK 16 version or why he had his arms in front of his....
I´m joking :)

Nice model, and absolute nice render will see more.


02-06-2002, 02:01 PM
lol, didn't recognize that the arms are in front of his... ;) ok there's nothing :P

The eyeglasses were a big problem, so i decided to put en flattened Hemisphere into the mask... the other things i tried, looked ugly :(

and thanx for the crits :)

02-06-2002, 08:25 PM
damn nice modelling you have there Neox.. good work!

yon dabuda
02-06-2002, 09:55 PM
excellent model. the mask design gives a very "insect" quality that i think is interesting.
keep up the great work.

02-07-2002, 03:39 AM

Still adding some details to the torso, but now i'm tired and i decided to stop for today, he'll get some pockets and protectors tommorow :)

please crit a lot :)

02-07-2002, 04:41 AM
good look model, can you make a GI ernder with shadows, it can be great :)

02-07-2002, 04:43 AM
Great work. If I were to dig for something to crit (and I'm digging deep because you asked) I would say maybe that the part of his mask where his mouth is should maybe be more convex. Maybe some room for a chin. but then again...?

ps he frightens me so dont tell him I made that comment about his chin

02-07-2002, 02:05 PM
you didn't say anything about his chin, a remodel of the mask can't make him angry ;)

whoa whats that? the cloth from his mask is in his mask... outch... i will fix that :)

02-07-2002, 10:48 PM
amazing man...really detailed.....

02-08-2002, 03:32 AM
As i promised, i remodelled the mask around his mouth, and now he can breathe ;)

I also added a flashlight (rightshoulde) a Bag for a nightvisiongoggle, a protector for his belly (is that the right word??), and some other details like screws and clamps for the pipe from his forehead to his back :)

:edit: forgotten the image :p :edit:

02-08-2002, 03:46 AM
Reaaaly Nice! I like the Spikes on the Tube! :D
The bag on the left looks a bit unflexible..
...go on!

02-08-2002, 04:54 AM
Ah man, really nice work going on here.
Going heavy there on the details! cant wait to see this one textured.

02-08-2002, 05:27 AM
just noticed....I think I would give the cuffs a little more thickness, but I guess they'll probably be hidden anyway.

great work!

02-08-2002, 05:46 PM
i don't think that they have to be thicker... because he'll get some big gloves

But thaxs for the comments :)

02-08-2002, 06:29 PM
Splendid modeling Neox it kinda reminds me of mad max.
Very Cool:)

02-08-2002, 10:17 PM
Hey Neox,
really good work.
The tube and spikes on his head seem a little strange - I would add them in his back head (like in Matrix) or two ones on each side of the head (you also could do it asymetrically - one left, more right, or so) - could be looking cool

02-10-2002, 04:37 AM
Thank you guys :)

Ok here's the newest version :)

added a few details and he got pants, i'm currently thinking about the knee protectors and his oxigen supply

OK let's crit :D

02-10-2002, 09:36 AM
Hey Neox, :D

how's it going?
That model looks great man! Very nice detail.
Cant wait to see more ;)

02-10-2002, 06:06 PM
Ah hey Irfan! Nice to meet you here :)
How is it goin in LA?

There will come more details :D
But I hate these cloth things (on his pants), 'cause i never did something like that :(

Ps: Die Elfe/Fee wird langsam *g*

02-11-2002, 02:24 AM
I just started to model his boots Here ( is a first designstudy (Avi file)

And Here ( is an avi-file of his pants :)

go on :)

02-11-2002, 02:08 PM
good modeling, very impressive

02-12-2002, 03:33 AM
thank you Nanoneen :)

Ok guys here's a small update of his botts, still have to add some details, and the lattice (is this the right word :confused: ) is not finished yet, but i dont know what to do with that :(

go on :)

02-12-2002, 08:14 PM
Ahhhhh why can't anybody say me that there is no picture???



02-13-2002, 09:53 PM
nothing to say? ok then i'll keep that design for the boot, ok i'll add a picture of his nightwvisiongoggles a.s.a.p. :)

02-13-2002, 11:56 PM
hi neox sry I'm a bit late but I'm here at last:
the boot is cool I don't like the 'Stacheldraht' (whatever this is in english ) though....

02-19-2002, 03:25 AM
Hi i'm back and Here! ( is an little Preview for his little companion, an Oviraptor, something like a hunting dog... :)

i tried to model him nearly exactly around a Picture of a skull if found on the internet...

So please crit alot :)

02-21-2002, 04:31 PM
Ok here's a little update of the oviraptor i'm currently looking for goof references of is musculature (need pics of a birds musculature :( )

i havent started on the leg for now, because i don't know how the muscles are lookin on his shoulder part...

so if you have some good references of an emu's musculature please send them to me :)

02-21-2002, 09:17 PM
keep on maxing neox or we'll all be sad to lose a great artist! :)

02-21-2002, 09:35 PM
be sure, i'm not going to stop maxing :D

02-23-2002, 12:53 AM
Nice modeling, Neox.
My only suggustion would be not to overdo the details. (Look at those boots!)

BTW: I can't see that Oviraptor video after proper download :-(

02-23-2002, 04:29 AM
Yu Chung? Is it you?

Erm i have updatet the raptor...

and download divx at

and i love doin details that aren't needed :D

Modelling is fun, and i want to have fun ;)

02-23-2002, 05:02 AM
hey! I like see something different!!
It's really cool! Good muscles in the last video!

02-23-2002, 06:04 PM
Yeah right, it's me, Yu-Chung (shit, busted! ;)

Finally saw the Oviraptor. Runs only with "ThaPlaya" which permanently crashes on my machine. But doesn't matter, it looks really nice!

Keep on the good work. I noticed the challenge too late. Can't wait til the next one comes!

02-23-2002, 07:55 PM
Just download the divx 4.02 codec and it works with every mediaplayer...

can't wait to see your work for the next contest :)

02-23-2002, 11:36 PM

Heres a little Update, gave him a little more flesh ;)

02-28-2002, 05:51 AM
Sorry nothing to say ....

Just perfect!


02-28-2002, 06:03 AM

02-28-2002, 06:09 AM
Yeah man, those muscles r realy somethin'

Planning to animate it?
Would like to see the result of that!

Nice doggy that guy has, would like to have one like that too at home, might come handy when i'm too drunk to drive & even walk

:D :D :D

02-28-2002, 02:03 PM

here's the basemesh, hope you see how i did it :D

don't know if i will animate him, 'cuz i currently have NO animationskills :(
but i definitely will texture this beast :)

02-28-2002, 02:11 PM
Hey man, I like your stuff!

BTW: Na Keule, des Köpfsche von deinem Männeken hab ich aber schonmal irgendwo gesehen, oder? ;)


02-28-2002, 02:15 PM
ach erzähl keinen Quatsch! :D *gg*

02-28-2002, 04:40 PM
Neox, excelent wire! very clean modelling!

Tell us about the animal, can he think? is he a warrior animal with armour? :confused:

waiting for the next update! :p

02-28-2002, 11:32 PM
thanx pabbloz :)
i believe he was a very intelligent creature (in comparison to other dinosaurs), he's a raptor, ok he's not as intelligent as the raptors in JP3 (LOL! These Raptors are oversized!!!)
hmmm, don't think that he'll get an armor, he'll get an Collar and chain, that the big Guy can hold him :D

ne next update is coming! I'm currently sitting on hands and feets, but there are still some details on the musculature that doesn't fit...

03-01-2002, 03:07 AM

ok here are his hands, still modelling on the transition of the inner hand to the thumb

03-01-2002, 05:52 PM
Wow! Neox, very nice nice modeling!!!

impressive work!


PS: Ich wußte gar nicht, das man sooo schnell so ein fähiger artist werden kann! Ich war vorhin mal im 3dmax projektforum drin, und das war im Herbst 2000!!! Und nun, sind ein einhalb jahre vergangen und du kommst mit SOETWAS!!! Das ist sooo der hammer, echt, volle respekt!!! wow! und nochmals mega danke für die Statue nochmals!!!

03-02-2002, 07:29 PM
ok here we go

I believe it's the last update on the model, i'll start now unwrapping and texturing him :)

Any comments or crits?

03-02-2002, 08:35 PM
Aaaarrrggh! Be carefull!! there is a free raptor in the forum!!! :D

Very very cool Neox. This update is a great job!. Only I think the feet remember a chicken,... but with textures they will be awesome!!!

And the knees are INCREDIBLE!!!!
Remember in the textures use a specular map! It will make it AMAZING!

I'm impatient to see it finish!!

waiting the next udate!

03-02-2002, 08:47 PM
heh very cool ....character :)
i like the mucles.
thats one bad-ass chicken :D

03-02-2002, 08:55 PM
Verdammt viel Arbeit bis zu solch einem Tierchen ;) Respekt mein lieber Herr Gesangsverein !!! Ich wär´ mehr als zufrieden mit Drahtgittermodellen dieser Qualität... besonders beeindruckt war ich von den Stiefeln - Hut ab ! Aber auch die Muskeln des Raptoren sind nicht so einfach hinzukriegen... vielleicht findest Du auch noch etwas Zeit und kannst mir ´n paar Tipps geben: ich brauch´ nämlich noch´ nen Körper für meine Kreatur: Hier der dirkete Link ! (

Keep up that amazing work and hurry up !!! Texture the beast - Complete the guy - Stick a scene together and BANG - we have a winner :D I´ve rated it with 5 Stars before, so i can´t give it anymore *g*

Go 4 it !

03-02-2002, 09:00 PM
Feck!!! Dangerous creatures running around the challenge...
don't worry about the missing mapping...they are real and they can feed from your 3d models...(great stuff)

03-02-2002, 09:27 PM
I like the muscles and his legs of cock :D
Great model.
I can´t wait for see it textured.

03-02-2002, 09:40 PM

03-04-2002, 08:00 PM
cool! :)

I'll be there and keep my eyes open

03-04-2002, 09:12 PM
Looks like the guy is... erm... you know... trying to "ride" ;) that poor animal. Hope he won't hurt it by doing that. I mean those spicky things on the boots, of course. ;)

Great model! Those bird-like feet look nice!

03-04-2002, 09:17 PM
ROFLMAO! SM With Leather and Chain combined with prehistoric Animal sex! OMG! Well the bird looks realy horny! :D :D :D

03-05-2002, 03:24 AM
ok tahts it i'll dump this guy, its impossible for me to rig that guy! But i'll finish the Oviraptor to let him fit exactly to the contest rules, althought it was fun to model him, ill throw that guy away...
it's pity but that really doesn't metter to me, it was fun :D

But wait till you see my raptor with a gear!! :D
