View Full Version : PA Challenge - Character - Neox

02 February 2002, 02:04 PM
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 February 2002, 02:46 PM
great job!
now i'm really considering of loosing this challenge :)

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

02 February 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 February 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,


02 February 2002, 06:56 AM
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 February 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 February 2002, 08:25 PM
damn nice modelling you have there Neox.. good work!

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

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

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

02 February 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 February 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 February 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 February 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 February 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 February 2002, 02:08 PM
good modeling, very impressive

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



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

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

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

02 February 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 February 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 February 2002, 11:36 PM

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

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

Just perfect!


02 February 2002, 06:03 AM

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

02 February 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 February 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 March 2002, 03:07 AM

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

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

03 March 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 March 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 March 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 March 2002, 09:40 PM

03 March 2002, 07:50 PM

03 March 2002, 08:00 PM
cool! :)

I'll be there and keep my eyes open

03 March 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 March 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 March 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
