Good luck!!

10 October 2004, 01:35 PM
Virtuoso - Hello! Virtuoso, thanks , I hope to see here... and you??? do you go participate? I hope so! see you here!! and good luck! :thumbsup:

Snok - heheheh! sure! and thanks!

My initial idea would be a conflict between two races where one is the human being of which invades other planets conquering without compassion eliminating yours enemy.I think about in the heat of battle making an epic scene for the survival of a side human aggressives and much technology and the other a race of great pacific life, but being obliged they have to become in agressibos beings to fight for its survival. I am little modest!:scream: we go to see if I get to arrive at the end! the way is long and good luck for all the participants.:bounce:

10 October 2004, 01:10 AM
Nice to see you here!! :D

I like your idea!

looking foward to see the concept art!

good luck! :D

a brasileira em massa aqui to gostando de ver :D

10 October 2004, 02:00 AM
good luck!!!

10 October 2004, 04:33 PM
Good luck to you too :bounce:

Sketches I wanna see sketches :)

10 October 2004, 03:27 AM (

thank you everybody!
this is my first sketch the idea it was made to show the idea and the project color in this base, next step will be the colors. I hope you enjoy! oOhhh remember the aliens and humans is just showing the scene. Again good luck for everybody!

10 October 2004, 03:12 PM
Great concept. If you maintain the habitual quality, the result will be great.

10 October 2004, 06:23 PM (

This is a color base of my scene, now Im going to start define the concept desing of human and aliens. comments are welcome.I will make now from ones sketch better for the human beings and aliens, more detailed.

10 October 2004, 06:41 PM
forgive me, but I think that a lesser image is better to see the composition of the colors.

10 October 2004, 10:13 PM
Man what a fun scene to look at. I can just imagine it in motion. I think you have some awesome poses going on, especially the aliens that are being shot w/ backs to the camera. I felt that read easily at a first glance. Rock on!!

10 October 2004, 10:31 PM
you could make the translucent skin with mental ray.

like this test i did:

i can send you the shader if you like.

10 October 2004, 01:45 AM
Hy luciano!! your miserable porc, alien killer heheheheh

nice idea dude. i will back foreward to see the 3d!!

best luck

10 October 2004, 07:09 PM
po luciano ta massacrando os alieinzinhos! hauhauha!! show meu!! mande ve ae! :twisted:

10 October 2004, 08:53 PM (

hi, this is my first sketch of the primitive alien,this race are very pacific and they have used its hunting weapons for the combat of the survival I hope you like it.
the commentaries are welcome.

10 October 2004, 09:09 PM
eahartz- Thank you. one thing that I can say that I will try to do some like real life, this is my challenge! :thumbsup:

pddaugusto - OOO! great shap, thanks and I want!!! :thumbsup: I would like to have your shaderIm think to make another concept that I have to use some like that in 3d.

D-3 - Lotus7 - Yes! Im killer !! Im the devil from space:twisted: thanks guys!

10 October 2004, 09:34 PM
Luciano.....................I like the epic battle scene and chaos........I would only suggest to open the scene up a little more.More of that grand and epic feel.Perhaps some foreground and background stretching,with some in-between elements to fill out that middle scene space.Just looking to help in some way.

i wanted to point out to you as well about the guidlines and instructions...............One of them states..............We are not looking for pictures of flying saucers, green humanoid aliens or spacemen with laser blasters. Please be original and imaginative.

I for one like your idea and look,the concept,but I just wanted to warn you in case you missed this.It of course is up to you on which way you want to go.Just something for you to consider.I will be looking out for more,and keep those PC's churning.

10 October 2004, 10:50 PM
looks fun! The planet surface kind of has that mood from Toy Story 2 in the beginning when buzz is sneaking around and gets surrounded by the robots. I look forward to seeing your 3D work!

BTW, I think that's the first time I've seen that style of Alien with hairy it up!

10 October 2004, 12:34 PM (

Thanks everybody!
this is my second concept for alien I tried to make more primitive alien and now I made with my tablet!:D
Virtuoso- thank you for your comments.yes Ill try to open the scene, but in 3d I will add some more details, like kind of tanks, explosions, I will try to make a very mass conflict, lets see!
Im wait for comments, Oh! I will try to be original too! :) thanks!! what you think about this new concept, Am I on the wrong way?

10 October 2004, 12:38 PM
I like that alien dude, he's got some real potential :)

10 October 2004, 08:43 PM
looks cool so far!! good luck!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 01:42 PM
really cool work dude, i'm amazed at the talent you have :)

10 October 2004, 01:57 PM
oh, my! those poor alien dudes!
this pic will be all blood and gore... can't wait to see it finished

10 October 2004, 02:16 PM
Very cool stuff. This is bound to happen to us sooner or later! I just hope the aliens don't see this first, they might think this is a part of our strategy then blow up our planet! :)

I love the details of the skin, and the expressions you give the creatures. You can really feel what is going on. Keep up the good work!

10 October 2004, 02:23 PM
Love that color scheme you got going, Luciano!:thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 02:37 PM (

thank you for all replies!

Ducklips - yes! I think that in the future we will be like a pirate of space!

This is the human soldier where it has a specific mission, to eliminate all the beings of any planet to acquire all its wealth, metals, substances cousins...

10 October 2004, 02:51 PM
Hey boss!! :D
Great work!! Uga-buga alien is cool!! So the soldier too!!
The soldier seams to be veeery bad, god thanks Im not an alien... :)
Well have a lot of work to do in 3D huh? Will you pay me? :shrug:
:thumbsup: ehehe... Great!!

10 October 2004, 02:52 PM
Looks very dynamic. Action-packed.:thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 03:38 PM
Very nice sketches, especially the human soldier. I agree with Virtuoso try creating a feel of
grand epic, I mean you can add many more things like space ships or something else for variation and also try making a huge battlefield.
This is going to rock I can't wait to see the 3dversion.

10 October 2004, 07:34 PM
Snok - Doublecrash - thanx a lot!!:thumbsup:

madshooter - thank you! yes! Im working on it, I will try to add more detail for the scene, I thought on the place of battle, and I will put in a village alien where we are the invaders with a huge spaceship and battleships atacks.madshooter - thank you! yes! Im working on it, I will try to add more detail for the scene, I thought on the place of battle, and I will put in a village alien where we are the invaders with a huge spaceship and battleships atacks.I hope that you like it.:thumbsup:
the next step is the battleship.

10 October 2004, 12:03 AM

10 October 2004, 11:01 PM
Nice concept on Battleship Luciano.... :bounce: ... waiting for more!

10 October 2004, 01:46 PM (

Thank you ! DimitrisLiatsos, I hope that you follow my updates, its good to see you here!

so! I stopped the concepts creation to start modelling, this is my progress for the ET. I hope you enjoy! , another day I will show you another concepts from the scene. I couldnt wait to start modelling!

10 October 2004, 08:35 PM
And so the modeling begins Luciano................Looking very good.And I expect to continue on this road.Lot's of modeling ahead for us all,and knowing your level of talent I know I can expect some very nice work/art here as always.Keep on with these "ET's" of yours,and show more of your concepts when you can.Very nice start on your modeling,and keep it coming,I'll be watching.:arteest: :beer:

10 October 2004, 09:04 PM
An ALIEN with personality ...and we haven't seen all of him yet...WOA!..great looking character.... :bounce: He looks old a bit in age... :)

10 October 2004, 09:09 PM
That's a very excellent ET you've got cooking there, Luciano. Both cutesy and eerie at the same time somehow... like the neck design in particular.

11 November 2004, 02:11 PM
thank you for reply!! Im glad with with its commentaries.:cool: the three are making excellent works:arteest:
Virtuoso - thanks! yes , I couldnt resist to start modelling, soon I will show you anotehers concepts.

DimitrisLiatsos - thanks! yes he is a older hunter, I will try to do some details different between the other ones, Im gonna make a woman too,no mercy with her.

JamesMK _ thanks!I I appreciate your words!

Good luck again my friends!:beer:

11 November 2004, 08:33 PM (

helloy! what can I say? :) this is a update from ET.

11 November 2004, 08:40 PM
Hi Luciano........Nice continued modeling.It's going to be a very nice one I can already see,plus knowing your level of talent this is a sure thing.I could only suggest that "possibly" you seperate the ribs a little more,a bit more of a divided area in-between them.Or give him a touch of "Fat" small rolls that flow over the torso and ribs....Little folds of fat,I think it can add to the organic feel,give this that added something even more so................Ok,trying to help where possible,just some thoughts.....WEither way fine going,you are on your way for sure.........Keep going hard and until next time......:arteest: :beer:

11 November 2004, 09:05 PM
I dont like the spacship design so much , but the alien is cool , I like the way u modeled his back .
U are going in a funny way, nice.

Isso ai :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 09:43 PM
I think that your alien is cool...really but i would chage something in his face cause he's looking too human (the face). I would change the nose and mouth...this is just a suggestion!!:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 01:03 PM
thank you!
virtuoso - hey its nice suggestion!:thumbsup: I will wrinkle the back area on the bones. lets try sometihng like that! unfortunatly Im limited from 3dmax for now! A lot of work to do!
BartokDesign - thanks! Ok! I think the space ship gonna be change a littel in 3d lets see. :thumbsup:
pBarrelas - I dont know about it th looking human , I will try to solve this in the texture. I had changed a little bit the mouth before, but thanks a lot for suggestion!:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 01:09 PM
Hey luciano, nice alien. I like it very much, nice details.:thumbsup: Only thing is if you can work littlebit more on his nose, I mean you can give a more rounded and defined shape to it. If you don't do it, its fine, because it is looking really cool.

11 November 2004, 02:32 PM
Luciano, i am really ansious now, seeing you alian so fine, so good, and with a so good structure and mesh, waw man, youre really great. I am loving your model.

11 November 2004, 05:11 PM
Cool, I like your concept of an alien battle scene. I hope the final render comes out very good! Keep it up!

11 November 2004, 05:58 PM
your modelling looks great, very close to the concept art, cant say anything more, waiting for updates..:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 10:17 PM
aaah very very good start, i feel like i'm having those spine bulging on my back..... stop!...i mean... more! please.:applause:

11 November 2004, 02:58 AM
Thanks a lot guys ! this livens up to me to work more:bounce:, it is not being easy Im sleeping few for working in this project, its words does not leave me to give up. I m working hard in my free time, soon... I will post another update from alien, Im working on the legs and add more detail on his back .
thanks again! madshooter - azhhael - alexru1z - tzktime - uwil. :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 11:31 AM (

hey, here is the update that I had told you, I will go to make some adjust in yours feet. I hope another comments.

see you!

11 November 2004, 07:51 PM
Looking good. The back looks marvellous. He needs a little more/wider bone structure where the thigh bone connects to the pelvis, IMHO... no further crits I can think of at this point.

11 November 2004, 06:26 PM
JamesMK _ hey!! thank you fo suggestion :thumbsup: I will change the bones a little and add another one for conect the pelvis.It will be better!! thanks a lot again!:)

11 November 2004, 12:30 PM
Waiting for another rocking update:bounce:

11 November 2004, 02:17 AM (

hi!! Folks!! this is another update I didnt have time to work more in the challeng in this last weekend, Im sorry!! so... C&C are welcome!

11 November 2004, 02:27 AM (

I think this you can see more detail about the modeling

11 November 2004, 02:29 AM (

....and the front view. C&C are welcome

11 November 2004, 07:44 AM
Looking great - particularly that kinky groin cloth :D

Now I'm not sure if you want to go towards realism or towards a semi-caricature angle on this... but for a realistic (ish) look it might be an idea to see how he would look with a slightly scaled down head.... just something that struck me...
Great modeling here, as expected.

11 November 2004, 02:59 AM (

thanks JamesMk,You are right, I fixed a little , and rescale the head and neck too, Now Im stating to put id and the uvw.for this model will be the next step. C&C are welcome!

11 November 2004, 11:57 PM (

comments are welcome. I tried to make the model really close from my concept

12 December 2004, 02:22 AM (

Hi everybody! here is the beginning of my soldier, I hope you like it.

12 December 2004, 02:29 AM
Man u have very clean modeling...i am not an expert on this but if u want some comments on your new guy...the here it is ...when i see him i imagine him with a little but biffed up shoulders...and a little fatter wrists...the seem a little thin (i always was doing that now i always watch at hope this helps...his face is awesome and main torso area...more! :deal: :bounce:

12 December 2004, 11:56 AM
Thanks for comments, I will fix this soon. We are Every learning!:thumbsup: :deal:

12 December 2004, 12:09 PM
Man this are some great models good work
I really like the details on alien :buttrock:
Nice Start of the human charachter

Keep it up:thumbsup:

12 December 2004, 01:27 PM
I was worried about the ship cause I didnt like the sketch , but in 3d it looks cool.

And the human is looking very good.


12 December 2004, 01:38 PM
Weird, I've totally missed the last updates for some reason... Anyways, solid progress!

My only suggestion today: the ship looks really neat and bulky, love that - but I can't get away from the sense that the wings should be flipped... I mean it feels like they have been attached reversed somehow, the result being that I'm not sure if the ship is coming or going :D Am I clear at all?

Great stuff an any rate, and the second character looks very promising. Actually looks like he has a distinctively brazilian physique :D (that's a weird statement....)

12 December 2004, 01:43 PM
cool progress man, i''lle ve following this :D

12 December 2004, 01:41 AM
I like the models, they are very well done. I have a slight objection... about the look of the small guy, tha alien... it seem se has a kind of a cartoony, goofy face. I'm not shure how he will fit in the scene with the human warrior, it'll look as if the human is fighting roger rabbit(actually not THAT bad, but I think you get it)... I think the alien should look more evil, in a kind of faceless way, like from the x-files, or something like that... Otherwise, keep up the good work!

12 December 2004, 02:44 PM
Lelantos, BartokDesign,d-tox - Thank you a lot!:thumbsup:

JamesMK - Yes, you are rigtht , great suggestion. I hadnt thought about it, thanks man!:thumbsup:

Liveman - I agree whit you. I m working on it. Im changing the looking of alien a little bit. thanks!

12 December 2004, 02:07 PM (

Here is another update. enjoy it!comments are welcome.

12 December 2004, 06:21 PM
Hi Luciano, your work here is amazing, good job:thumbsup:
this alien model is very cool too
keep going
Abrao ae
see it...

12 December 2004, 12:32 AM
nice to drop by your thread Luciano, just a light comment on the hip.... maybe you can put more accent to it... it looks shrunk.... but you're the man! keep the updates coming!

12 December 2004, 02:22 AM
Lauro - thanks man!!
uwil - thank you, Srunk?:scream: yes I agree with you, but.. He will be angry and crazy in my final image.

12 December 2004, 02:27 AM (

I start to make the clothes. Im trying to make closely from sketch that is possible.C&C are welcome.

12 December 2004, 03:07 AM
Hey Luciano,

I like your sketches very much, and the modeling of the characters is looking good. Those little alien models really will look good when positioned like in your concept sketch. Somehow I think the soldier should look a little more menacing but this could be the style you are after.
Great job with this.
My GSO entry

12 December 2004, 12:50 PM
hey stranger.....................No see or hear for soooooo have done some real nice and clean modeling here.....a nice battle is coming soon i see............Keep up the real nice work Luciano,i like your ideas and plans for this,and think you have put alot of effort in this,i hope you can get it just as you planned........I'll be watching,just get it into top gear,like the rest of us need to.......................Until next time,take care Luciano.....:arteest: :beer:

12 December 2004, 01:28 PM
mmoir - Thanks man! yes ! when I put in a pose I will try to more menacing.
Virtuoso - Thanks!! Im trying to reach something I had never reached before, realistic still, I know my difficults but I will try to do something nice.
Thanks again my friend! :beer:

12 December 2004, 08:46 PM
Hello,Luciano.Nice character, but take care with his legs they are too close, you may have problems in the rig.

12 December 2004, 02:09 AM (

here the update. Now Im starting texture of the caracters and i will start making a scene composition , I know that I have to model another things, cheers!

12 December 2004, 03:59 AM (

hi! this is my firts post with texture. comments are welcome. I think that tomorow I will finish the soldier, this render was made with scanline with GI.

12 December 2004, 04:20 AM
texturing looks great...and a cool design for the model and character...but the legs are to will see when you rigg and rotate his arms down ...they look like they will hit at the knee or below...If you wewnt building such a PowerfuL looking character it woulden't be any big thing....maybe if not make them longer...make them what I mean....

---------cool character though,,,,very cool.... :buttrock:

12 December 2004, 09:07 AM
Wow, this texture looks great!So real! I only don't like his shoes, they are to wide for me.

12 December 2004, 11:50 AM
Essence- thanks for the comments,I guess that answer about your doubt you will only get when I rigg, so lets see.:thumbsup:
Graga- Thank you, Im happy about the texture, for Now Im thinking that Im in the rigth way. His shoes maybe is the angle camera I dont Know.:)

I wait for more suggestion or critical in my texture.

12 December 2004, 12:10 PM
Great work Luciano! The textures are really impressive. I agree about the shoes. They look tooo much cartoony-like(to wide). And I think it would be good if you make th etextures more dirt, I don't mean the areas on the edges of geometr(because there it looks amazing), but in the middle parts. Now it look as this guy was fighting and useing this armor in many battles, but now he cleaned and poolished it up. If you wanted this kind of effectm then it's ok:thumbsup:

I'm looking forward for the next updates!

12 December 2004, 01:58 PM
I wish I stopped by earlier to crit on the thighs.. they look a bit under-developed compared to his upper body. I agree on every1's comments on the shoes

the armour designs are very well done and interesting, medieval yet space like.. great work here. Textures are excellent, no crits here... looking fwd to see the face textured

12 December 2004, 05:12 PM
Nice to meet you! I saw your character and it rocks, but, I don't see the other images :sad: ,
I dont know if it's something with my browser or you are posting your images externally from other sites, if it is so, I suggest you to read instructions and rules, you may get desqualified,
Well, Luciano The few things i could see are great, keep going man :thumbsup:

12 December 2004, 07:29 PM

Tudo legal?
Bem amigo seu trabalho est muito bom, as textutras me agradam bastante e eu gostei muito dos concepts, entre outras coisas. Parabns, vcs amigos me deixam em uma situao difcil, pois estou torcendo por todos:bounce:
Luciano seu desenhos ficaram massa, tenho um dvida como vc vai resolver a shader da pele:)
boa sorte e tudo de bom


12 December 2004, 07:59 PM
Thank you for all replys, I will make a little changes in his shoes.
Soon I wil put another update I hope to finish this model in the next week.:thumbsup:
Fala metaballs! Valeu pela fora, eu vou tentar usar sss do max vamos ver no que vai dar, valeu mesmo !! em breve colocarei mais um up quem sabe j com o rosto.

Um abrao.

12 December 2004, 10:19 PM
Hi Luciano................Looks very good thus far......Quite a bit of work,and well done.......I think the legs are too short........You can elongate them or go another route if you desire..............You could go the "Realistic toon" route...........Even shorten the legs more?Add some more exxxxagaerated features?Or of course just balance out the proportions a bit more................

The textures are looking good.The containers on his sides could be made thinner,as this could be a problem with his arms when they are in a lower angle...........But all in all a very nice piece ofwork ,lots done and done with good quality.........Keep it going,your doing a fine job for sure...........:cool: :arteest:

01 January 2005, 04:51 PM
I really get the feeling that the upper body is too long for the lower. Maybe, lengthen the legs. Glad your fixing the shoes too.. :)

01 January 2005, 11:31 PM (
Thank you a lot!! for all replys.
I didnt have time to finish. This is the last image that I was working .
Good lucky everybody!!

01 January 2005, 11:58 PM
Aw... too bad. But you did some good stuff until the very end though - that surely counts for something :thumbsup: Great WIPs at any rate!

01 January 2005, 07:36 AM
Nevertheless great wip, perhaps you can finish it after the challenge? :wip:

01 January 2005, 03:30 PM
James and Tzktime -thanks a lot!!

thanks to everybody again for all support and comments.

Yes, Ill try to finish soon.
