nice, i like that style.

not much i can crit at the moment but maybe look at the forearms more closely.

looking forward to another update :)

02 February 2002, 07:01 PM
I like your character's proportion
he looks like a good PA hero
waiting impatiently for the head

02 February 2002, 10:06 PM
I'm still working on the hands....But for now here is a better render !!!!

02 February 2002, 02:19 AM
uau!! It's very cool!!!
how will the head be?

Only a critic:
I think the jacket don't must have muscles.

02 February 2002, 05:09 AM
i like it so much, specially the legs :)
i want to see moooooooooore :)"""

02 February 2002, 12:10 PM
I dig the style. The proprotions are cool. One little thing though: The fatty lower stomach seems a little out of place. Perhaps fatten up his hips aswell.??

just a thought :)

02 February 2002, 10:46 PM
Update for the day!!

Don't pay too much attention to the head...this is just a start to help me with the proportions...
I've add the hands and very small details...

P.S : pabbloz and Bug_Eyed_Earl ,
I've followed your advices....thx

02 February 2002, 02:33 AM
hey but he seems to have some "Brioche!"(big stomac with gelatine in french)...

Maybe just like is creator...Arfffffff!:D

Seriously...Very good and clean and fast work...
Make a sketch pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase! ;)

Just to know what it will look like...and to give you some lateness !!! hinhin...

Fout lui plein de matos autour de lui...
Charge la mule mon gars!

And don't forget...Let the loukoum dance!

02 February 2002, 06:19 AM
ouaaahha i like it so his look.I can't wait to see it finish.
And like totitch say it would be great to see a sketch.
oh oui un joli chti crobard:D
nothing to say just keep your time

02 February 2002, 05:05 PM
Hi All

here is my last Udate!!
Crits and comments are welcome !!

02 February 2002, 05:08 PM
nice work stipen
the modelisation looks very clean!!

02 February 2002, 05:16 PM
Oh dear, thats very good.

I dig the Helmet and goggle design, very original.

jsut one small inconsequential thing that bugs me... he can't close his shirt, so it either shrunk in the wash or he has a bad tailor

02 February 2002, 05:26 PM

what is going to be the next step?

02 February 2002, 05:58 PM
Lol krugar !!
Actually the jacket is not supposed to be closed!!!
Even when the belt of the jacket is closed's not entirely closed!!
He lives in a very hot desert environnement!!!

He kinda reminds me of Mad Max's sidekick in the ROAD WARRIOR.

ALSo, I just have to say it.


02 February 2002, 09:26 PM
Thx Big_B
You reminds me that I should re-watch "mad max"....
I'd like to start to add some accessories but I'm a little out of idea!!
if anyone has some suggestion that could fit my character, feel free to answer me...
Actually I see him like a messanger


02 February 2002, 05:12 AM
just a pre-color version!

Pabbloz: I'm now goin' to focuse on the boots , his face and then modeling of accessories!!!

02 February 2002, 06:13 AM
if he is a messenger then he must not have too much luggage, so that he is light on foot.

maybe a knife and some sort of handgun... maybe some small luggage.

he needs water and phone book to look up addresses :)

02 February 2002, 08:44 AM
He needs cheap plastic wings (ala Mercury) attached to his boots =)

Great stuff!

02 February 2002, 09:32 PM
hehe !!!

very nice design stipen !!!

good work

02 February 2002, 03:58 AM
yoo man..
that is a great one. !!!!
i love his style..
vive la france !!! ont est les + bOOOOO

seriously ..
he really look nice ..
wait to see him with textur and a nice rendering... :-)

02 February 2002, 03:16 PM
heeey!! I have an idea!!!
why doesn't he use skaters?!!!
I don't know the name in english.. maybe boots with wheels, or skids or roollers.... hockey-wheels... :confused: :D :D
If he is a messanger could be a good idea! he will be very fast!

or He can uses a helicopter like the Insperctor Gadget hehe.

Good Luck!

02 February 2002, 03:31 PM
Thx pabbloz for the idea but actually I see him in a desertic environment ...Not STREET !!!
I'll try to send an Update in a few day!!

02 February 2002, 09:38 PM
Very very little Update!!
I've work a bit on the face and the boots

thx to :

xtrm3d (you're right!!!lol)

For the comments!!!

02 February 2002, 09:57 PM
yes!! cool new details!! excelen arms and hands!!
great job! Have you already think what weapon or vehicule is going to wear?
maybe a gun with a belt like in the wild west (cowboys...).
you know,... contrast between the future apocalyptic with early weapons. :)
He could wear a star like a sheriff too!! :D

Again... fantastic arms!

02 February 2002, 10:10 PM
Hey Pabbloz..!!I like your idea of colt...Excellent!! thanks a lot

02 February 2002, 10:25 PM
If he's going to have a vehicle, make it a beat up old metal horse contraption... something perhaps steam-powered that bears resemblance to a horse? Looking great!

02 February 2002, 12:29 AM
I don't know if you are planning on making a vehicle for this guy, but he looks like he was born to fly, you should also give him the good ole' mad max sawed off shot gun too, bu that is only my personal opinion, excellent work!:)

02 February 2002, 12:39 AM
Yeah Stipouch!!!

His face is really will be "top" with a "BARBICHE"! :D
He has got more personnality now!
And what a clean work!!!

tu kif ta race la hein???C'est autre chose que Gena! Arf Arf ! ;)

02 February 2002, 01:38 AM
Stipen!!!!! Very nice PA Guy....!! :D

02 February 2002, 03:09 PM

I think this could be cool too... but not street rollers... more for the mountains... like a tank... just small

02 February 2002, 10:36 PM
very cool design! STIPEN

Done in XSI 2?

what about a mechanical Camel for the desert?

02 February 2002, 05:23 AM
Yeah stipen!!! Nice stuff!

Great boots
Is there wheels under his boots to walk on S....
If you understand what i mean!!! ;)

Ehh ecoute le bruit des rouleaux sous mes grolles...Plaf,plaf,proutch!!! Mèèèèèrdeuh!

i'm waiting for this f... "Barbiche"!

02 February 2002, 05:38 AM
thanks pabbloz....Really appreciate.Yours is excellent too !!
Dot : I do see what you mean and it sounds like a great idea but it's a matter of time...I' ll see !!
thx Furi and you're right : XSI for the mech camel....I'll see with totitch my personal designer!!! lol (need more time, could be really funny too )

Hey tota the barbiche is comin' soon...promis!!

02 February 2002, 05:48 AM
No problem for the mech camel!!!

See you tomorrow!

on fera ça pendant les heures de taf! :D
Bonne nuit Stipouch!

02 February 2002, 03:06 PM
I can't believe i've spent 2 hours modeling the gun....but it sucks so bad that I'm gonna let it hidden in its holster !!

Totishto I want a MechCamel design !!

02 February 2002, 03:18 PM
we want to see the gun stipen!!!!
what will he do if he is attacked by a desert PA gang ??!!!!
is he a good kung fu fighter??

02 February 2002, 03:21 PM
The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!!
The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!!
The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!!
The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!! The Gun!!

A big zoom on it!!!

Assume Stipouch!

02 February 2002, 03:25 PM
But this looks like a guy with connections... I don´t think anybody is gonna touch him! He does'nt need large weapons - except for protection against desert mutants and weird animals! But as for gangs roaming the desert... everybody knows who he is, and they would'nt want to face his friends... :)

Good good work Stipen! One of my favos so far!

02 February 2002, 03:55 PM
hello Stipen !

i like your Comics look (BD)

i thing the same of Totich, one vehicle as U.L.M or helicopter of Mad Max II, + a Sheriff Star and you have an maravillous scene !!

one of my favorite model !

allonz'enfants..... :cool:

02 February 2002, 07:48 PM
great guy, love it, especially the lower 50% of his body. the only thing that dosen't look right to me is the bellybutton area, I made a quick retouch of your pic to show you what I mean, might just be me, just an idea...

02 February 2002, 07:58 PM

Why have you hiden the gun? :D

okok...maybe you need a good references:
Colt (

or... the complete gallery, with a lot of other weapons:

complete gallery (weapons for all) (

I love how is getting your model!!
Où le captus de fer est ? :p

p.s. I'm complety agree with fellah!

02 February 2002, 08:02 PM
you are a serial killer Pabbloz !!!!
such violence in only one mail !!!!

02 February 2002, 08:03 PM
waou pabbloz....What is this site much gun in there!!!
Are you part of the mafia or somethin' like that???
Sorry but i didn't anderstand what a CAPTUS is????
gracias for the comments anyway!!!

02 February 2002, 08:05 PM
Be carefull NANONEEN !!!
Juging by the link he sent, Pabbloz is probably an Espanian-Mafia godfather ! :D

02 February 2002, 08:30 PM
haha!! You recognized me!!!! :D :D
Be carefull with me babies... There are people under the floor for things less importants... :D :D

Stipen!! where do you live?
summer captus (


02 February 2002, 09:30 PM
great style! 5 stars! :D :D :D

02 February 2002, 09:52 PM
Oh, i really don´t know what character should win - i thought i knew the winner, but as more works i see as less i am sure about it ;)

Can´t wait to see some more - maybe a more futuristic gun.

BTW: Ey Pabbloz - i need some gun . . . the "FN-P90" ! You have any good references ?!?

02 February 2002, 10:44 PM
A man must never been ashamed of his gun, so draw!
The face is great, a fresh cartoonish look. Just a comment, i think there´s a contradiction: he uses googles but he lefts his belly bare? Has he never heard about the risks of the post-nuclear summer sun? :cool:

02 February 2002, 11:09 PM
Bassit, of course!! :D

02 February 2002, 12:31 AM
Just add two straps on the leg to hold the holster!! that's all for the moment...Hey i'm not the "five minute update man"
Pabbloz : My thread is not a "weapon catalog" lol!!! By the way I swear i'll put a captus for the final scene_ cause you demande It!!

PANCREAS:his skin is actually adapted for the environment...A kind of mutation...the googles protect him from sand storm _WAOUH!! ...what a great explanation!!!_

FEllah:I knw this is not anatomically correct but I like the style this way...Nevertheless have've change it "a bit" in your Way...

Thx to the others for the comments, especially from SIR
Pascal Blanché:this is great honnor from the last challenge winner

02 February 2002, 06:50 PM
Heya Stipen, I really like the way you've cartooned your character :)
I don't have much of crits here, it's some very nice and characterized modelling. What I'd pick on is his belly area (as already pointed out by someone else) because it doesn't look like his belly continues into his pants but is kind of cut off. You may have fixed that in the last pic but it's hard to see from that angle.
Also the creases on the pants don't seem to flow where they should along the groin and they seem too thin around the gun straps. I totally love the rest of him though!


02 February 2002, 12:21 AM
Very impressive for someone that is not the "five minute update man!!!!" your character is near to be perfect! Great cartoon style!!
But i feel something strange about the straps on the leg holding the gun.......too much tightened maybe...... (is only an impression!)

02 February 2002, 01:22 AM
Heeeeeyyyyy Cooooolll.
I realy like it! The character is just great and the props carry it too!

03 March 2002, 03:48 AM
Here's my last Update!!
I'm on holydays tomorrow so the WIP ends here for me....
Hope you like It!
Thanks to everybody for the kind comments and for sharing with me so much knowledge...


03 March 2002, 03:59 AM
Great posing !! Also the character is a masterpiece, but i think you know that already ;) I thought i know the winner, but since i have crawled through the forum i am not sure anymore... Thank god - i am not in the jury :D I couldn´t decide who is first and who´s not !

Hope to see you in the next challenge too !

03 March 2002, 04:01 AM
Yeah Stipouch!

What great poses!Very cool!
But where is the "Captus"? :D :D ...and he doesn'l show is weapon!Why??? :D :D
Your render i very nice but there is little red and green points on the first picture !!! Nevermind...

It's a greet work!

Go on hollydays, you merit it!(Surf bien mon gars!)

Et au fait...Merci pour le JamesCustom!Bâââââtard!!! :D :D
J'vais le refourguer en douce a Nanoneen...:p
Au fait! Tu sera pas la pour pouiller la machine de notre regretté Steph! Hinhin! J'te garde une barrette si j'peux!

éclate toi bien(Pas les jambes bien entendu!!!) :D

03 March 2002, 04:05 AM

:D :D :D :D :D :D

Ohhh my god!! it's excelent!! I love the right pose!!! What night of updates!! totitch and then you!

I love this cowboy guy! The best for me are the design-concept and the arms (hands too).

I know already the two first places!!

I can't stop looking it!! aaargh!

p.s.: is there any chance to see in the final render a captus? :p ;)

03 March 2002, 04:10 PM
I LOVE your character. It´s one of my favorites.
I want to see the gun!! :D
Could you tell me the settings for the FG?
Thank you.

03 March 2002, 05:15 PM
you ended this challenge very nice stipen, I love the right pose, it's relaxing (though the elbow looks weird)
I'll guess I vote have a vote left for you to :)

Krep Suzeth
03 March 2002, 03:39 PM
Ahah !

Un petit perso sympa comme tout, à mi-chemin entre le cartoon et le réalisme, tout ce que j'aime. J'aime vraiment bien son visage, avec juste ce qu'il faut d'arrogance.

La petite pose décontractée me rappelle quelquechose ... regarde mon WIP sur le précédent challenge :D

Bon. L'anim maintenant ?

Krep Suzeth.

03 March 2002, 04:43 PM
good work Stipen
I like the posing, the way he looks over the horizon line thinking about the woman he left behind him ( or the piece of roast pork
maybe!!!! )

03 March 2002, 04:11 AM
Now that is smooth, the way I like it.
Great work, it is truely full of character.
